Flavour’s Father’s Burial: Senator Ubah Blames Governor Soludo for Insecurity in Anambra

Flavour’s Father’s Burial: Senator Ubah Blames Governor Soludo for Insecurity in Anambra

The senator representing Anambra South Senatorial Zone, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah has reacted to the movement of the burial of the father of music star, Flavour, from Anambra to Enugu State.

Music star, Chinedu Okoli, better known as Flavour, an indigene of Anambra State had at the weekend held his father’s burial in Enugu rather than Anambra due to insecurity, according to close confidantes. 

But reacting to this, Senator Ubah has apologised to the music star for the poor security in the part of Anambra where he hails from, but stated that the interference of Anambra State governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo was the reason Umunze, Flavour’s home town, has remained insecure.

In a press release by his Special Adviser on Media and Strategic Communications, Mr 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.

“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,” he said.
