Order by the leadership of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to boycott the November 18 Anambra governorship election has gathered momentum as Some Niger Delta militant groups have declared their support.
According to some of the militant groups who backed the IPOB leadership, the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State, will not take place.
The groups, Concerned Militant Leaders (CML), Niger Delta People Democratic Front (NDPDF) and Rainbow Marabas Squad (RMS) argued that since May 30, 2016 when soldiers allegedly massacred harmless and innocent IPOB members in some parts of the Southern states, Federal Government has remained silent over the incident.
Leaders of the groups, General Ben (CML), General Playboy (NDPDF) and General Aneaja (RMS), after their meeting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Wednesday, demanded for justice for the victims of the May 30, 2016, Biafra Day celebration killings.
Convner of the meeting, General Ben, stated: “Federal Government should address the injustice meted out to innocent and harmless IPOB members, while celebrating Biafra Day. The election in Anambra State should not hold and will not hold. That injustice must first be addressed before any election will take place by Federal Government.
“Southern political leaders, who are romancing with Federal Government to truncate and jeopardize Biafra struggle because of the selfish aggrandizement, will live to regret their actions because, we will not forget them.
“Any attempt by Federal Government to take us for granted, should be resisted. We advise Anambrarians to boycott that election. Any person that flouts our order does that at his or her peril. Nobody is our target, but don’t make yourself our target”, the groups warned.
