Nigeria's Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) have expressed concerns over the deteriorating security situation in Anambra State ahead of the November 6 governorship election in the South Eastern State.

The Chairman of the Commission, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, who raised the alarm during an emergency meeting with the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) held on Tuesday, in Abuja, emphasised that various security reports have confirmed that the prime motive of the attackers is to scuttle the election.
