The Yoruba socio-cultural organization, Afenifere, has described the annunciation by the Attorney Full general of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, that the federal regime may declare a state of emergency in Anambra Province as a self-indictment.
Afenifere said Malami’s comment was to a greater extent of a verdict of failure on the section of the federal regime to supply security rather than the failure of the Anambra Province regime.
Jare Ajayi, National Publicity Secretarial assistant of Afenifere, said: “To shift the failure-blame to the province regime is so shocking and unlucky.”
In a statement he signed, Ajayi said: “It was in tell for the federal regime to warn that the incessant violence in the province was unacceptable and may guide to undesirable issue, but it is a height of blame game and hypocrisy to set all the blame on the province regime when it is clear that the main security apparatuses in the country are controlled exclusively by the federal regime.
“The highest whatever province regime in Nigeria is allowed to do in terms of security is to set upwardly local vigilante groups who cannot carry equipment essential to combat insecurity in this 21st security. The variety of weapon they could carry under the nowadays Nigerian law is the type a individual going to hunt for game in the bush can carry piece those they are supposed to face up are armed with nearly the most sophisticated weapons available.”
