Peter Obi calls killing of Christopher Eleghu “targeted killing”

The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has described the killing of the party’s candidate for house of assembly in Imo State, Christopher Eleghu, “targeted killing.”

Eleghu was murdered by assailants early on Friday morning at his house, and the culprits also set fire to his car and other belongings, an act Obi claims goes against the spirit of civility.

Obi tweeted on Friday: “I am deeply disturbed by the evidently targeted killing of the Labour Party State House of Assembly candidate for Onuimo LGA in Imo State, Hon. Christopher Eleghu, at his home. His house and cars were reportedly set ablaze.

“I condemn these heinous acts in the strongest possible terms. Such acts violate our spirit of security, civility, and the recently signed Peace Accord. Federal and state security agencies must work assiduously to uncover those behind this killing.”
