The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has debunked insinuations that the group called for the boycott of the Nov.6 gubernatorial election in Anambra State.
IPOB in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful on Thursday maintained that the entire Biafra land would be locked down from November 5 to November 10
The release read, “The global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indefatigable leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU wish to clarify that contrary to speculations and blackmail, IPOB has never made any official statement or called for the boycott of Anambra State gubernatorial election coming on 6th of November 2021.
It will therefore be wrong for people to speculate or peddle falsehood against us when there is no basis for such.
“For the sake of clarity, what we said was that the entire Biafra land would be locked down from November 5 to November 10, 2021 if by November 4 the federal government fails to release our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally.
“Our position has nothing to do with Anambra election. All we need is the release of our Leader who committed no crime to be held perpetually in custody.
“We have gathered through intelligence the plot by Nigeria Government to keep our leader in detention perpetually through frivolous court adjournments.
“Politicians must leave IPOB out of their predicaments. They should stop dragging IPOB into their election.
“We knew their evil plans when they were killing their fellow politicians and blaming it on IPOB. They should leave us alone.
“Using social media to link IPOB to Anambra election shows most of them are not informed about plots by Nigeria Government and her security operatives to hijack this election and give it to whom they feel to perfect establishment of Ruga in Anambra State.
“But that won’t work for them because IPOB is ahead of their game plan.
“We urge media houses to be objective in their reportage and cross check their facts. IPOB has never at any time called for boycott of Anambra election.
