The Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Anambra State, Mr. C. Don Adinuba who disclosed this in a statement in Awka said that the Anambra State Government had received credible intelligence reports about moves by members of the said political party.

According to him, one of the meetings which borders on how to use the coercive apparatus of the state to carry out the plot had just been held in Awka, the Anambra State capital.

Adinuba, however, stated that none of the heads of national security agencies was aware of this plot.

“The desperate politicians want to use certain compromised operatives working without the knowledge, let alone the support of the national heads of the security agencies to perpetrate this act.

“This announcement is to bring the evil plans to the knowledge of all Anambra people but also to the attention of all relevant authorities for prompt action.

“All our people are enjoined to go about their normal business while the State Government takes every necessary action to ensure a free, fair and transparent election on Saturday.

“The elections in the State in the last few years have been very free and fair. We will continue to do everything possible to maintain the new tradition of free and fair polls”, he said.
