Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, on Wednesday, vowed to deal with anyone who would want to cause commotion during the governorship election in the state.
While speaking on Wednesday in Awka, the Anambra state capital, Governor Willie Obiano, fired a warning to the members of the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to steer clear of the state during the November 18 poll.
The governor who insisted that there would be election in the state, and that the pro-Biafra agitators had no powers in the law to stop the poll, threatened to go after anybody who would pose a threat to the poll, no matter how highly placed.
He warned those planning to disrupt the election especially the popular pro-Biafra group, IPOB, to have a rethink or be ready to face the full weight of the law.
He said; “We are going to go after them, we will deal with those who said there would be no election in the state decisively.
“People are free to vote candidates of their choice, you can see that in Anambra state today people now sleep with their two eyes closed,” he insisted.
It was reported that IPOB had earlier threatened that there would be no election in Anambra state and the entire South East zone.
It was also gathered that the secessionist group had planned to attack campaign rallies in the state to create fears in the people about the poll.
