‘Needless bloodletting’ – Peter Obi reacts to murder of Rev. Fr. Chietnum



Mr. Peter Obi, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has condemned the brutal killing of the Rev. Father John Mark Chietnum..

The Catholic priest in Kafanchan Diocese was abducted and killed by bandits in Kaduna state.

In a statement by his Media Aide, Valentine Obienyem, on Friday, Obi described Chietnum’s death as “among the many needless bloodletting in the country arising from poor leadership that need to be changed”.

Obi regretted that he was unable to attend the burial of Chietnum but sent his heartfelt condolences to the family, the Kafanchan Catholic Diocese and the Catholic community in the country.

Meanwhile, he decried the killing of some Nigerians in the Mgbidi area of Imo state.

He said none of the blood of innocent Nigerians shed would be in vain as they would all be martyrs for the revival of Nigeria.

According to him, the insecurity in the country made it imperative that the youths must rise in unison irrespective of religion, tribe or geography to take back their country.
