President Muhammadu Buhari’s National Security Adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno, says the security agencies are going to do everything within their power to ensure that the people of Anambra State undergo the election exercise without any incident.
There has been tension that the November 6 election may be affected by the sit-at-home order issued by the pro-Biafra group, the Indigenous People of Biafra.

Monguno noted that those with the intention to disrupt the Anambra governorship election must have a rethink.
This was made known at the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) meeting organised by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Monday in Abuja.

He explained that while security agencies have been charged to act professionally, they would not sit idle and allow anyone to disrupt the election.
“I want to reassure the general public that the security agencies are going to do everything within their power to ensure that the people of Anambra State undergo this exercise without any incident.
“In the same vein, I want to offer a word of brotherly advice to our brothers and sisters in Anambra State who may want to use means, methods that are unorthodox and that are unusual to destabilise an already delicate situation, to please, think again.

“We are all eager to achieve results in this election that will be acceptable to everybody.
“I don’t think it will be helpful for anyone to go out and ignite something that might cause pain for the good people of Anambra State, under whatever disguise. Please think again.
“The law enforcement agencies, in as much as they have agreed to operate in accordance with the requirements of their profession, will not sit by idle.
“We will not allow people to start looting, destroying public property, and resorting to not just intimidation, terrorising people, possibly arson and even homicide.
“This will not be accepted. The law enforcement agencies have been asked to watch out for such elements,” Monguno said.
Monguno, a retired major-general,  also advised the security personnel not to engage in any act that would tarnish the image of the security agencies or harm the electoral process.
