FG Supports Malami Over Call For State Of Emergency In Anambra

The Federal Government of Nigeria has reaffirmed support for the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, on the tendency of declaring a state of emergency in Anambra if the incessant killings and other criminal acts in the state

Recall that the Attorney General of the Federation had announced on Wednesday that the Federal Government might declare a state of emergency in Anambra due to the violence in the state ahead of the governorship election in the state on November 6.

Mohammed said this on Thursday when he was interviewed by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, he said Malami’s stance was as a result of constitutional crisis in the state.

Mohammed said no government would fold hands and allow the pillar of democracy to be shattered.

As reported by Daily Post, in Mohammed words: “In the last couple of weeks, IPOB had imposed sit-at-home on the citizens, they did not allow people to go to schools, markets and there are also high profile killings.

“The AGF said yesterday that the government will do whatever it takes to restore law and order in Anambra and the entire South East to ensure that symbols and pillars of democracy are not tampered with.

“Those who are criticising the AGF on this, have they thought for one minute what will happen if the election does not take place in Anambra State on Nov. 6?

“What will happen will be constitutional crisis of immense proportion,’’ he said

The minister added that previous tenure had at one time declared a state of emergency in Ekiti and Plateau States.

When asked why the government did not declare a state of emergency in Zamfara, Katsina, and Kaduna where they claimed there were more killings, the minister said the situation was not the same with Anambra.

In his words, “You do not compare apples with oranges, the bandits in Katsina do not want to leave Nigeria.

“They do not want to declare their own republic and they are not saying there will be no elections. They are primarily criminals.

“It is a disingenuous argument to say that they have killed more people in Katsina, Zamfara and Kaduna than they killed in Anambra. jamb results

“What is happening in Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna and Niger is criminality and the government will not condone it.

“I have not seen the bandits hoist any flag anywhere as opposed to Boko Haram,” he said.
