The Nigerian government may declare a “state of emergency” in Anambra as a result of the state’s constant attacks and deaths.
During an interview in Aso-rock just after a Federal Executive Council meeting, Nigeria’s Attorney-General, Abaubakar Malami, hinted to this.
The minister told newsmen that the government is working hard to guarantee that the state’s election goes off without a hitch.
“When our national security is attacked, and the sanctity of our constitutionally guaranteed democracy is threatened, no possibility is ruled out,” he said.
Anambra state scheduled to have its Gubernatorial elections in November, an activity now being threatened by the activities of pro-secessionists and ‘unknown gunmen’, Igberetv reports.
A High profile assassination, kidnaps, mayhem and arson have occurred in the state.
Dr. Chike Akunyili, the husband of late NAFDAC DG, Dora Akunyili, was gruesomely murdered by unknown assailants about a week ago. His death was condemned by the state governor, Willie Obiano.
