The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Friday, met with the leadership of Ala Igbo Development Foundation, over the boycott order given by IPOB on Anambra election.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said he honoured the meeting which was held in Owerri, Imo state capital over his love and respect for the Igbo elders.
He added that his struggle for the republic of Biafra was based on justice.
Speaking briefly, Kanu said: “I came because of my respect for elders. IPOB is not a violent group. We are law abiding citizens of the society. “What we here today will guide us in the issue of Anambra election. I will go and meet with the leadership of IPOB.”
In his speech, the President of Ala Igbo Development Foundation, Professor Uzodimma Nwala, said that it was the first meeting with the IPOB leader on the boycott order on Anambra guber.
Nwala said: “As you see in our midst, you see our brother Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, we have come to discuss the issue of mutual concern, especially on Anambra election. We are happy he is here with us.
“As we know the IPOB decision on boycott of election and you know that IPOB is an orgarnised group and the agitations born out of marginalization of the Igbo.
“We are glad he has explained to us the reason they issued the boycott order and that it is not his personal decision but that of the IPOB leadership. We are meeting for the first time and will still meet again. No decision has been taken.”
