A man was killed this morning, September 27th, in Afor Nnobi, Anambra State by unknown gunmen.
According to accounts in a video reviewed by Elendu Reports, the man, who was a trader was shot in his shop because of APC flags and emblem.
In the video, eyewitnesses said that two men in a car stopped in front of the trader’s shop and shot him because of APC flags.
While we are yet to confirm the motive for the killing of the trader who is yet to be named, the increased level of violence in Anambra State and the Southeast is a cause for concern to residents of the region and even the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which is preparing to conduct elections in the state on November 6.
The Commission, through the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi had expressed worry over the level of violence in the South East and suggested that it may hamper elections in the region.
Oyekanmi said, “The commission is deeply concerned about the security situation in the South-East. It is an established fact that INEC cannot carry out electoral activities under chaotic conditions.
“God forbid that INEC is unable to conduct such elections at the appointed time because this will lead to a constitutional crisis. The constitution did not envisage that.”
South East governors, it would appear have decided to cede security in the region to the whims of followers of Nnamdi Kanu.
According to reports reaching us, the sit-at-home order of IPOB which is observed every Monday is in force in many parts of the region.
“I can tell you that Enugu is completely shut down,” a source in Enugu told our reporter on phone.
