Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF) and minister of justice, made it known that the Federal Government may declare a state of emergency in Anambra State to have a hitch-free governorship election in November. Abubakar Malami made this known after the federal executive council (FEC) meeting that took place in the presidential villa, Abuja on Wednesday.
However, the recent concurrent atrocities being committed by IPOB and unknown gunmen in the region are the reason why the FG has threatened to declare a state of emergency in Anambra. This declaration could help to stop the activities of unknown gunmen and IPOB that may disrupt the state governorship election.
It will be of note that unknown gunmen have been attacking and killing the residents of the region over recent times, and IPOB has earlier threatened that there would not be an election in Anambra and other states in the Southeast until the country is separated. However, if a state of emergency is declared in the state, the military men are going to be in the helm of affairs and the soldiers will show no mercy towards those parading themselves as unknown gunmen in the state or the enforcers of IPOB sit-at-home order unlike a civilian governor.
Since the military will be the administrators in the state after the declaration of a state of emergency, all the nooks and crannies of the state will be full of military men and those disturbing the peace of the state will meet their waterloo as there may not be a hiding place for them again.
The unknown gunmen and other terrorists in the state have an easy way of operating because they have not held with an iron fist. The moment a state of emergency is declared, many of them will run back to their shells because they will never have the boldness and courage to face the hardworking Nigerian soldiers.
What is your take on FG threatening to declare a state of emergency in Anambra ahead of their governorship election?
