The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has cautioned the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, not to draw the organization into the state’s governorship election on November 6.
The IPOB leadership made this known in a statement signed by Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary on Sunday.
The organization stated that it had no business with INEC, especially when it comes to discussing how to organize free, fair, and peaceful/credible elections in the state.
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,” the group stated.
