He noted that the country has so far recorded 16 accidental military bombings that claimed over 500 lives, and no decisive has been taken by the Federal Government to avert a repeat of such tragedies.

The Labourn Party 2023 presidential candidate, however, stressed the need for the government to support the military to ensure that incidents like accidental bombings do not happen again.

Obi also called for a thorough investigation into the military air strike and proposed the establishment of a foundation to assist the victims of the Tudun Biri drone attack, especially those who have been orphaned as a result of the incident.
