The leadership of the indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, not to pull the organization into the governorship race in Anambra State on November 6.
The IPOB leadership announced this in a statement signed by Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, and given to DAILY POST on Sunday.
The group claims it has no business with INEC, particularly when it comes to discussing how to organize free, fair, and peaceful/credible elections in the state.
“We, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU, desire to restate once more that we have no business with INEC,” the message continues.
“We have no idea whether INEC exists.” We have no involvement in the election that INEC is holding, and we are perplexed as to why INEC would try to bring us into it.
“INEC should deal with the issues at hand and leave IPOB alone.” We had no discussions with the Nigerian government, much less the INEC.
“We found the announcement by the Nigerian police that they will send 33,000 people and eight helicopters to Anambra State governorship elections on November 6th to slaughter Igbo citizens amusing.
“This statement from the IGP of the Fulani-controlled police forces demonstrates how ready they are to murder our people, as well as a clear indicator that Nigerian police and the Fulani cabal do not want the Anambra election to take place.”
“We also want to state unequivocally that the Nigerian police intention to send nearly 33,000 officers and three helicopters to Anambra State for the November 6 governorship election, among other things, is yet another plot to murder more innocent Biafrans.”
“This validates our fears and earlier intelligence that Fulani-controlled security operatives are working on plans to use the election to push more Biafra youths to commit suicide.
“As a result, we would want to warn Biafrans in Anambra State to be very cautious of this wicked plot and don’t play into their hands,” the group stated.
