The leadership of the indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, has dished out a word of caution to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to desist from associating the name of the group to violence ahead of the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State,
In a statement by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful he made it known that IPOB cannot be involved in any violence.
He averred that they are an independent group and cannot be meddled with crime and violence. They disassociated themselves from the elections and asserted that the IGP is planning to shed the blood of innocent Biafrans in the elections.
The statement reads in part: “We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU wish to reiterate once again that we have no business with INEC.
“We don’t know whether or not INEC exists. 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 it and leave IPOB alone. We didn’t dialogue with the Nigerian government let alone INEC.
“We found laughable the declaration by the Nigeria police that they are coming to Anambra State governorship elections on 6th of November with 33,000 personnel and 8 helicopters to kill Igbo citizens on that day.
“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 to place on record that the plan by the Nigerian police to deploy over 33,000 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 Biafra youths to their early grave.
“We therefore, wish to advise Biafrans in Anambra State to be very cautious of this wicked plot and don’t play into their hands,”
