The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, said the decomposing, headless bodies found in Abia State are a reflection of the scale of insecurity in the country.
Alex Otti, governor of Abia, while speaking at a media parley on Sunday, said 20 headless bodies and countless human skeletons were found around Lokpanta cattle market in the state.
Reacting to the development in a thread on his official X page on Thursday, Peter Obi described the development as “barbaric and cruel.”

Obi stated, “I read the bone-chilling story coming out of Abia State, where over 80 bodies were reportedly recovered around the cattle market, with about 20 headless decomposing bodies.
“This level of barbarism and extremely cruel acts only reflects how insecure our environment has been.
“It unearths how insecurity has continued to ravage many parts of the country, taking innocent lives and killing the economy.
“I thank the Abia State Governor, Dr Alex Otti, for taking such a bold step against insecurity in the State. This is highly emulatable.”
