The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has distanced its leader, Nnamdi Kanu from the alleged boycott threat of November 18 election in Anambra State.
It will be recalled that the group’s leader, Mazi Kanu and the body has come under heavy criticisms following the alleged threats, the recent being that of the Ohaneze ndigbo, the apex Igbo organization, during their visit to the Anambra State house of Assembly.
Reacting over the election boycott, IPOB said it was rather the wish of eastern Nigeria and its members who visited him in his home town Umuahia, Abia state.
In a statement issued by the group’s media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, the group called on Biafrans, clergymen and women, church leaders and Christians to disregard the allegations, describing it as handiwork of evil men who do not want to see good things coming to her people.
“The boycott of election in Anambra State come November this year was not the making of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu rather the wish of eastern Nigeria and IPOB members who visited him in his home town Umuahia, where the people told him that they don’t need election again in Biafraland and they are ready to boycott election because since the creation of Nigeria they benefited nothing in Nigeria elections except killing, riots and humiliation from our politicians.”
“Since the announcement for the election boycott in Anambra State, the Federal Government and their agent the DSS mapped out strategies and huge amount of money sharing to destroy and tarnish the image of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB in general, those with this stupid story on social media platforms should retrace their steps because they will fail,” it concluded.
