Flavour father’s burial: Ifeanyi Ubah blames state governor for continued insecurity

Ifeanyi Ubah, a senator representing Anambra South has reacted to the movement of the burial of the father of popular musician, Flavour, from Anambra to Enugu State.

Chinedu Okoli, professionally known as Flavour, an indigene of Anambra State, had said the insecurity in the state was the reason he moved his father’s burial to Enugu.

In reaction, Ubah apologized to the music star for the poor security in his part of Anambra, but blamed the interference of the state governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, for the insecurity in Umunze, Flavour’s hometown.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Strategic Communications, Kamen Chuks Ogbonna, Ubah said: “I apologize to Chinedu Okoli (Mr Flavour) for missing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate the life and time of his father in his hometown.

“I would have secured Orumba and the entire Anambra South senatorial district if the state government hadn’t stopped my security initiative, despite its success in the Nnewi Pilot program.

“The state government’s actions have left my constituents vulnerable to security threats, particularly in areas currently under siege by non-state actors, which would have been liberated by now. I will continue to advocate for the security and well-being of my people, despite the obstacles.

“In 2023, I launched the security initiative aimed to provide comprehensive security coverage for the Anambra South senatorial district.

“Following its success in Nnewi, plans were underway to expand the programme to Orumba North and South, Aguata, Ihiala, Nnewi South, and Ekwusigo. However, the state government’s interference halted the initiative’s progress, introducing politics into security matters and prioritizing the governor’s second-term bid over the welfare of the people.”

He said Nnewi, where he was able to implement the initiative without hindrance, is today the safest town in Anambra State.

“We used a combination of artificial intelligence, local intelligence, walkie-talkies, and 4G high-definition CCTV security networking systems to achieve this,” he explained.
