“We have support of the helicopters for aerial surveillance. We have gunboats to patrol the waterways. We have enough vehicles to operate during this election. And from tomorrow, you will be seeing us in the streets.
“We intend to dominate everywhere in this state and the dominance is to reassure the good people of Anambra that they’re secured. Everybody should come out and exercise their civic responsibility on the 6th of November.
“We are going to be very civil to them. But for the troublemakers, we are going to be firm and decisive on anybody who tries to prevent anybody from doing what is the right thing to do,” Echeng said.
Meanwhile, the Spiritual Director, Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to negotiate with people of the Southeast over the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Addressing his members at the Adoration ground, Mbaka said those around the President were telling him lies about the sit-at-home order.
According to Mbaka: “Whatever is affecting Igboland is affecting the whole Nigeria.
“I am pleading with Mr President that there is still time for him to come out from his house, and stop believing in the report that they are giving him. Mr President is being fed with fake reports, mendacious reports.
