Ahead of the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State, the leadership of the indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, has cautioned the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to stop involving the IPOB into the state’s election.
IPOB leadership made this known in a statement signed by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful. POB said they have no business with INEC, especially in chatting the way forward in conducting free, fair and peaceful/credible elections in Anambra state.
The statement reads in part: “We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU wish to say it once again that we have no business with INEC.
“ We have nothing to do with the election INEC is conducting, and we wonder why INEC would want to drag us into the election.
“INEC should face what is facing them and leave IPOB alone. We didn’t dialogue with the Nigerian government let alone INEC.
“We heard the declaration made by the Nigeria police that they are coming to Anambra State governorship elections on 6th of November with 34,000 personnel and 3 helicopters on the day of election.
“This statement from Fulani controlled police IGP shows how prepared they are to kill our people and also a clear indication that Nigerian police and the Fulani cabal do not want the election in Anambra to hold.
“We also want people to know that the plan by the Nigerian police to deploy over 34,000 police and three helicopters, among others to Anambra State for the November 6 governorship election, is another ploy to kill more innocent Biafrans.
“This confirms our fears and earlier intelligence that the Fulani controlled security agents have perfected plans to use the election to force more Igbo youths to die early “We therefore, wish to advise the Igbos in Anambra State to be very cautious of this evil plot for them to be safe.
