- Bomb scare in INEC secretariat, Anambra state.
- IPOB members threatened death to anyone who dear vote.

The workers in the Anambra State office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were thrown into pandemonium following an alleged discovery of bomb in the office.


The apprehension is coming five days to the governorship election in the state scheduled to hold on Sat. 18th of Nov  2017.
Meanwhile, the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra had threatened to stop the election; saying what the people needed was a referendum for Biafra and not a governorship election.
However, it was reported that the suspected explosive was planted near the state INEC gate.
Some INEC workers, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, confirmed the incident.
They said the substance was first sighted in the early hours of Monday.
Speaking on the telephone, the state Police Public Relations Officer,   Nkeiruka Nwode, said she was not aware of the development. When she was asked why there was a large number of bomb disposal experts at the INEC Secretariat,  Nkeiruka said it was part of preparations for the Saturday governorship election.
It was reported that suspected IPOB members had threatened voters with death if they cast their votes, adding that they would disrupt the election.

In videos of the march which went viral on the social media, they had said, “If you vote, you will die. Don’t go out, stay in your house. If you vote on November 18, you will die. There will be no election. We will not participate.
