The Federal Government has been warned not to take the threat by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to disrupt the Anambra governorship election on November 6 lightly.

Ambrose Aisabor, a former Assistant Inspector General of Police, also challenged the Igbo cultural organisation, Ohaneze, and other leaders in the zone to quit faking about the identities of the perpetrators of recent murders in the South-East area.

In an interview with Daily Trust, a security expert said that stakeholders’ participation and huge deployment of security people are essential, and that security agencies must deploy their employees “correctly” to cover all nooks and crannies of the nation.

IPOB had threatened a one-week sit-in beginning the day before the election if its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is on trial for suspected treason before a Federal High Court in Abuja, was not freed.

However, the security expert emphasised that specific steps must be taken to guarantee a peaceful and legitimate election in Anambra.

“The question of security is really critical,” he remarked. There are warnings from a variety of sources that the election will most certainly be shortened. The most powerful is the one promoted by the IPOB.

“In light of recent events, this danger should not be regarded lightly.” Not because people do not want to vote, but because they are afraid of the IPOB’s armed branch, the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

“People also believe, based on recent heinous occurrences, that the security personnel are incapable of safeguarding them.” Even before Election Day, security organisations must appropriately deploy their people to cover all nooks and corners of the state.

“Participation of stakeholders is another crucial aspect to consider in order to guarantee that people turn out in force to exercise their franchise.” The Ohaneze Ndigbo, the National Orientation Agency, political parties, church, traditional rulers, town unions, transport and market unions, and others are all involved in this matter. These individuals must be educated and mobilised.

“The Ohaneze Ndigbo and other zone leaders must stop pretending about the identities of these mystery gunmen.” They are all aware that the IPOB and its military branch, the ESN, are responsible for all of the deaths in the south east zone.

“Security agencies must demonstrate capability and professionalism.” The problem of marginalisation in the country’s south-east is genuine, and it must be addressed via constructive dialogue.”
