Biafra agitation: IPOB calls for boycott of gubernatorial polls

THE National Orientation Agency, NOA, has called on electorates in Anambra to disregard the threat by Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, against the 18 November governorship election. He explained that the public demonstration was meant to notify the federal government that the group was alive and that its boycott order still stands.

The federal government had, in September, secured a court order to designate IPOB a terrorist organisation.

"We 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". Kanu, since his release, has never spoken about them or appealed for the release of these our freedom fighters. The election is expected to hold on November 18th.

Mr. Powerful told journalists that IPOB would not be deterred from achieving a Biafra Republic, despite prolonged absence of its leader.

(B) Kanu's actions and his decisions to incite members of IPOB towards violence leading to the death of many innocent young people in Onitsha, Aba and Umuahia is totally unacceptable and grossly irresponsible. Powerful basted, making reference to the now concluded Operation Python dance of the Nigerian Army. We insist on a total boycott of all elections because voting in Anambra or any other elections in Nigeria is an exercise in futility because Aso Rock has already decided who they want to be sworn in as Anambra governor despite the warm words of free and fair elections emanating from APC praise singers in the South-east. Dozens of IPOB members have since been arrested and are being prosecuted by the police.

It called on traditional rulers, president-generals of town unions, the police, INEC and other stakeholders to address the issue and allay the fears of voters before the election day.

"Other security and safety agencies who are members of Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) in the state are also deployed to complement the personnel of the Nigeria Police Force during the election". "The troops are always on ground to prevent any breakdown of law and order during the election. As you know, the police are the first line of security and we can not usurp their role", Mr. Musa said. "We have mastered the areas and we are familiar with the hideouts of the troublemakers".

In a joint statement signed by the coordinators of the 16 different groups, the coalition also raised an alarm over the massive deployment of armed security personnel to Anambra State ahead of the gubernatorial poll.

"It is only a group that has no agenda for Biafra that will be calling for stay-at-home two times in six months", he stressed.

The coalition also condemned the federal government's massive deployment of armed security operatives to the state to provide security formations before and during the Saturday election.

He adds: "while awaiting the emergence of a new Biafra, BIM would continue to support good governance just as it is being experienced now in the state".

"Anybody doubting the resolve of IPOB under the supreme command of Nnamdi Kanu is mistaken".
