In other news, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, the former governor of Anambra state, has declared that people stating that the scheduled governorship election in the south-east state will not take place are lying.

In an interview with Channels Television, Ezeife accused individuals of spreading the idea of working against the state’s upcoming election in order to deceive the public.

He further claimed that some insiders are collaborating with outsiders to cause havoc in the South-East.

According to the former Governor,

“The issue of those people saying there will be no election in Anambra State is a lie intended to mislead (the people).”

Following the April 5 attack on the Nigerian Correctional Services and the Police Headquarters in Imo State, Ezeife explained how the term “unknown gunmen” came to be used:

 “Remember when the incident in Owerri Prison happened when the unknown gunmen started, those people who were the unknown gunmen, Governor Hope Uzodinma said more than 70 per cent of them were not from the east. 

“That happened months before Nnamdi Kanu came back, now the Akunyuli case. My own people saw it happen.

“My PA, driver and the other people who saw this thing happen never saw any group of people claiming responsibility or saying there will be no election. I cannot clearly say that nobody from IPOB is responsible. There are bad people everywhere, there may have been people especially at the beginning who acted violently and those people may be from Anambra.”
