The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has revealed the reason why it imposed sit-at-home order in Anambra starting from November 5th. Speaking on Thursday, IPOB denied asking residents of Anambra State to boycott the November 6 governorship election in the state.
 
IPOB explained that its sit-at-home order has nothing to do with the Anambra State governorship election. Emma Powerful, the spokesman of the separatist group, said it is focused on the unconditional release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu and not the Anambra State governorship election.
 
Powerful said IPOB’s sit-at-home order starts on November 5 if Kanu is not released. A statement he signed and issued reads: “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 November 6 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 the Anambra election. All we need is our leader’s release 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 the establishment of Ruga in Anambra State. But that won’t work for them because IPOB is ahead of their game plan.”

Dont blackmail the FG through asking it to release Nnamdi before election can hold. Hope you realise the FG has a duty to enthrone a govt in a State thats expiring.
