OPINION: Will Southeastern Regions Be Peaceful If Declared States Of Emergency By The FG?

According to Wikipedia, the thought of declaring a state an emergency type is during "natural disaster, civil unrest, armed conflict, medical pandemic or epidemic or other biosecurity risk." For those who do not know, a state of emergency is defined by Google as "a situation of national danger or disaster in which a government suspends normal constitutional procedures in order to regain control."

Lately, many Southeastern States across Nigeria are affected by the atrocities committed by unknown gunmen, members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and also members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN). The most recent attack was against a well known doctor named Chike Akunyili.

As these attacks get heightened on a daily basis, the question begging for answers from Nigerians is "will Southeastern Regions be peaceful if declared states of emergency by the Federal government (FG)?Map of Nigeria's Southeastern States. Credit: Google.

The answer to this question is a resounding yes because if eventually the federal government declares states like Anambra, abia, imo, ebonyi and Enugu states of emergency, it would limit the manner in which the inhabitants of the states get attacked by unscrupulous disturbers of peace.

If this declaration gets eventually made by the federal government, it would also aid in resolving the security lapses in the states. This is because the legal authorities would source for ways in knowing the main reason behind the attacks experienced by indigenes of the states.PHOTOS' CREDITS: Google.

It is noteworthy to remind you all that historically, when a state or country is declared an emergency state, it ends yielding positive results. Hopefully, when the Nigerian federal government considers making Southeastern regions emergency states, the insecurity bedeviling the areas would be limited if not totally eradicated.

Having read this piece, dear esteemed Readers, do you also agree that there would be a reasonable control of security in southeastern regions if made states of emergency?
