Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has appealed to the various groups of agitators protesting for the release of the founder of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, in Onitsha to do everything within their power to maintain the peace as his administration would not stand by and watch what had looked like a peaceful procession get out of hand.

Delivering a Special Address yesterday on the continued siege laid in Onitsha by thousands of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) protesters, Governor Obiano expressed concern that the activities of the agitators might destroy the peace that his administration had laboured so hard to bring to the state.

“As your Governor and the Chief Security Officer of the state, I am compelled to act to avert any likely breakdown of law and order. In all situations, the preservation of human life comes first and I am determined to enforce that,” Governor Obiano declared.

Pointing out that his administration had made security of lives and property its priority from inception, Obiano warned that he had no intention of compromising on that.

Consequently, he appealed “to the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), MASSOB and other aggrieved groups and individuals to maintain the peace and resist any attempt by hoodlums to take advantage of the situation and destabilise any part of Anambra State.”

The governor further warned all mischief makers who might want to take advantage of the peaceful demonstration to foment trouble to “keep off as we will not tolerate any breach of peace under any guise or pretence.”

He assured residents and visitors to the state that he was in touch with all the security agencies in the state and had their assurances that mischief makers would not be allowed to take advantage of the situation to disrupt the peace that Ndi Anambra currently enjoy.

Said he: “I therefore wish to assure Ndi Anambra and all visitors to the state to go about their normal business peacefully as the security agencies are on top of the situation to preserve law and order.”
