Indigenous People of Biafra has renewed threats to motorists not to
risk driving through Anambra State on the evening of Friday November 17
and 18 on the day of Anambra State gubernatorial election.
was contained in a statement by the group’s Media and Publicity
Secretary, Emma Powerful while advising its members to boycott the
governorship election in the state.
statement, he said IPOB has no plans to disrupt the elections in the
state but what it told its members was to boycott it.
statement read in part, “The leadership and entire members of the
Indigenous People of Biafra worldwide, led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to
state for the purpose of clarity that we are boycotting the Anambra
governorship election, which is a form of civil disobedience.
rumour that the IPOB intend to disrupt the polls on Saturday as peddled
by politicians, Nnia Nwodo-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo and the Independent
National Electoral Commission, is not only baseless, but also it is
insist on total boycott of all election because voting in Anambra or
any other elections in Nigeria is an exercise in futility since Aso Rock
has already decided who it wants to be sworn in as governor of the
one’s life to go and vote on Saturday, with trigger-happy Hausa/Fulani
soldiers looking for a Biafran to kill, is a risky adventure not worth
undertaking by any sane person.”
people must know that the same politicians asking us to go and vote
were the same people that conspired with Aso Rock cabal to bring death
to our land through the Operation Python Dance II.
Ndigbo and these same Igbo politicians asking us to vote on Saturday
have never condemned Fulani herdsmen killing our people on regular
basis, but they quickly rushed to label their own people terrorists.
sane person should listen to them because they have come to do the
bidding of their Arewa masters. The blood of over 90 Biafran youths,
including the 28 people killed at Nnamdi Kanu’s residence, is upon the
heads of these charlatans. Anybody listening to them is making the
mistake of his life.
hereby warn all commercial vehicle operators to please stay away from
Anambra State, starting from the evening of November 17, because any
vehicle seen will be regarded as hostile and working to subvert the will
of the people.
we advise everybody to stay indoors on that fateful day in Anambra
State and to desist from driving through the state from 5 pm on Friday,
November 17 to 6 pm on Saturday the 18th.
