Youth Initiative for Advocacy Growth and Advancement, an election observer group, on Monday asked security agencies and other stakeholders in Anambra State to address the "vote-and-die" threat by the Indigenous People of Biafra before Saturday's governorship poll.

According to him, "Whether you vote or not, it does not change anything". To this end, the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has directed that a robust and elaborate security arrangement be implemented in the state to ensure a very secure environment for the conduct of a peaceful, credible and free and fair election.

On the other hand, it said, a failure of the boycott will also place the Biafran struggle on the line, should Anambra people come out en-mass in November to vote.

"Also, no security operative or agent should be allowed to check vehicle papers on Election Day in Anambra State, and INEC must ensure that each of the 4,608 polling booths in the state is supplied with three functional and fully charged card readers so as to speed off the voting process and decongest the polling booths", the statement read.

"That is to further say that with only 4,608 polling booths in Anambra State, it statistically means 11 armed security personnel are allocated for each of the 4,608 polling booths in the state". This, it explained, is because the unions could mobilise vigilante groups in their various communities to checkmate the activities of the IPOB during the governorship election since Anambra State has one of the strongest density of vigilante groups in the South-east. Powerful basted, making reference to the now concluded Operation Python dance of the Nigerian Army.

"I am the governor of Anambra state and all the paraphernalia of my office must be there".

"We hereby warn all commercial vehicle operators to please stay away from Anambra State starting from the evening of the 17th of November because any vehicle seen will be regarded as hostile and working to subvert the will of the people".
