Flavour stated over the weekend that the prevailing insecurity in Anambra forced him to relocate his father’s burial to Enugu. Reacting to this development, Senator Ubah apologized to Flavour for the insecurity in Anambra and blamed the state’s governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, for the situation.

“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,” Ubah said in a statement issued by his special adviser on media and strategic communications, Mr. Kamen Chuks Ogbonna, on Monday.

Senator Ubah criticized the state government for halting his security initiatives, which he claimed had been successful in Nnewi and could have secured the entire Anambra South senatorial district, including Flavour’s hometown of Umunze.

“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,” Ubah stated.

He further lamented that the government’s actions have left constituents vulnerable to security threats, particularly in areas under siege by non-state actors.

Ubah vowed to continue advocating for the security and well-being of his people despite these obstacles.

In 2023, Ubah launched a security initiative aimed at providing comprehensive security coverage for the Anambra South senatorial district.

Following its success in Nnewi, he had plans to expand the program to Orumba North and South, Aguata, Ihiala, Nnewi South, and Ekwusigo. However, state government interference halted its progress.

Senator Ubah noted, “We used a combination of artificial intelligence, local intelligence, walkie-talkies, and 4G High Definition CCTV security networking systems to achieve this.” He emphasized that Nnewi, where the initiative was implemented without hindrance, is now the safest town in Anambra State.
