proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has claimed victory in
its election boycott campaign of the Anambra Governorship election,
saying: “There is no election in Anambra State, everywhere is empty,
both the polling booths and streets are totally deserted.”
statement by its Spokesman, Emma Powerful, said the Governorship
election in the State witnessed a low turnout, because the people heeded
to the group’s warning.
to the statement: “IPOB wants to use this opportunity to congratulate
Biafrans, particularly the people of Anambra State, for obeying the
order of IPOB and our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi, who has been abducted since
14th September, 2017, in today’s election.
people of Anambra State have shown the whole world that they are the
first sons of Biafraland, and no doubt about that, there is no election
in Anambra State, everywhere is empty, both the polling booths and
streets are totally deserted.
want to tell the whole world that IPOB under the leadership of Mazi
Nnamdi Kanu, gave the order on Anambra State Governorship election, to
prove to the civilised nations that we are no more interested in the
system of government and her political strategies. The international
community and other civilised nations should come for rescue of Biafrans
in the Nigerian Islamic government.”
however, gathered that the statement released by IPOB was conflicting,
because the general report by Election Observers, has it that the turn
out of voters in the State was very impressive.
