General Abdulrahman Dambazzau, former Chief of Army Staff and Minister of Interior, has alleged that terrorists and members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, activities will constitute serious threat to the general elections in 2023.

Dambazzau spoke on Tuesday in Abuja at the Blueprint Newspapers’ annual lecture titled, “2023 Politics: National Security and Nigeria’s Stability”.

He believed that insecurity would affect the 2023 general elections, saying that some communities would still be displaced and the terrorists would likely continue attacks on soft targets to hinder Nigerians from casting their votes.

According to him, “INEC officials and ad-hoc staff would be highly apprehensive despite the assurance by the government to protect them. Access to polling units in border communities may pose some difficulties. This is one more reason why adequate security must be provided.”
