Professor Charles Soludo, candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, for the November governorship election in Anambra State, has accused politicians of being responsible for the ongoing security crisis in the State. 

While many people mostly in government have maintained that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, are responsible for the current crisis in the state, Soludo believes that politicians should be held responsible.

He suggested that Andy Uba, candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC for the upcoming election might have a better explanation as to why the security situation in the state has deteriorated over the last couple of months.
