According to a report reaching us from Sahara Reporters, the Nigerian government said that a state of emergency may be declared in Anambra to ensure the protection of lives and properties during the state's governorship election on 6th November.

This was revealed on Wednesday by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubarkar Malami, at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in Abuja.

While speaking with journalists, Malami explained that when Nigeria's national security is threatened, the government will surely do everything possible to restore peace in the nation.

The writer believes that declaring a state of emergency in Anambra at this time is not the best option as it might affect the state's governorship election on 6th November.

The level of insecurity in Anambra is indeed very high at the moment, but declaring a state of emergency might scare people from coming out of their houses to vote.

Operation Golden Dawn has already been flagged off in the South-Eastern part of the country, and the aim of this operation is to restore peace to all the disturbed areas in the region, including Anambra State.

The writer does not see the need to declare a state of emergency since a military operation is already ongoing in the state.

If a state of emergency is declared in Anambra State at this time, the movement of residents will likely be affected because restrictions will be placed by the government, and it is something that should be avoided considering the number of days left before the election. The people need to feel that their rights of movement aren't taken away before that election date.
