Anambra poll: Take IPOB’s threat serious — Ex-police boss tells FG

The federal government was yesterday advised not to take the threat by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to disrupt the election with levity. 

A retired Assistant Inspector General of Police, Ambrose Aisabor also charged the Igbo cultural organisation, Ohaneze and other leaders in the zone to stop “pretending” about the identity of the perpetrators of killings in the South East region in recent times.

In a chat with Daily Trust, the security expert said stakeholders’ engagement and massive deployment of security personnel, saying the security agencies must deploy their personnel “properly” to cover all the nooks and crannies of the country.

The retired police chief stressed that certain things need to be done to ensure a peaceful and credible election in Anambra.

He said, “The issue of security is very important. There are threats from many quarters that may likely truncate the election. The most potent is the one being propagated by the IPOB.

“This threat should not be taken lightly in view of what has been happening recently. Not that the people will not like to go out to cast their votes but because of fear of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) which is the armed wing of the IPOB.

“The people also have the belief that the security forces are not capable of protecting them judging from recent ugly events. The security agencies must deploy their personnel properly to cover all the nooks and crannies of the state even before the Election Day”.
