*Says anyone that wants to disrupt the Governorship election process “will be brought to book.”
National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babagana Monguno (rtd), on Monday warned troublemakers intent on disrupting the November 6 Governorship election in Anambra State to behave themselves as the Federal Government would not sit by and allow them perpetuate their enterprise.
The NSA said anyone that wants to disrupt the Governorship election process “will be brought to book.”
General Monguno said during a meeting of the Special Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security held at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that “we want to offer brotherly advice to our brothers who want to destabilise the process to think again. We are all eager to achieve results that will be acceptable to everybody. I don’t think it will be right for anyone to ignite a crisis. Please, think again.
“The law enforcement agencies will not sit by idly and allow people to terrorize people, commit homicide. They have been told to watch out for these elements. I am appealing to you to stay in your wards and behave yourself. Anyone that wants to disrupt the process will be brought to book.”
Monguno added that security agents have been instructed to act within the confines of the law and with professionalism to ensure that the election goes on without a hitch.
“For those of us in security, we have already done what we are supposed to do. All security agencies have been told to conduct themselves well and exhibit the highest level of professionalism and restraint and operate within the confines of the law and not in any way that will jeopardise the exercise.
“We are going to ensure that the people of Anambra undergo this exercise without any incident,” he added.
