Indiscipline: IPOB expels its Assess Recovery Officer, Mrs Nelly Ofoegbu


By Luminous Jannamike

The Northern Elders Forum, NEF, on Wednesday, threw its weight behind the  plans of the Federal Government to declare a State-of-Emergency in Anambra, saying the government must do whatever it required to retrieve the South-East region from the whims and caprices of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and other similar groups in the diaspora.

NEF’s Director of Publicity and Advocacy, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, stated this in an exclusive interview with Vanguard in Abuja, following the disclosure by the Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami, that should it become established that there is a failure on the part of the state government to ensure the sanctity and security of lives, property and democratic order in Anambra,  the Federal Government will move to declare a State of Emergency there.

The Forum said, “All lawful initiatives needed to be taken to arrest the violence in any part of Nigeria need to supported.

“The nation is being swamped by violence by non-state actors. Too many groups and individuals appear to think that they can continue to exploit weaknesses of the administration in securing citizens.

“The Governorship elections in Anambra State must not be sacrificed to IPOB and related interests. Nigerians in this State must be afforded the opportunity to elect their next Governor.

“In general, the Federal government must retrieve the South East from IPOB and diaspora irredentist. No inch of Nigeria should be yielded to organized crime.”
