Anambra Election: IPOB States Position On Dialoguing With INEC
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has stated that it cannot dialogue with Nigeria, adding that to it the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, doesn’t exist.
IPOB stated this in a statement to newsmen by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, in Sunday.
The pro-Biafra group stated that the police doesn’t even want the Anambra election to hold following its decisions to 33,000 personnel and eight helicopters to the state.
According to the group, they should not be dragged into the November 6, 2021 Anambra State governorship election as it is of no interest to them.
IPOB statement read in part: “Following the statement from the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, that it is coming to negotiate or dialogue with IPOB, over the forthcoming Anambra governorship election, we, the global family of 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.
“IPOB family worldwide does not 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 did not dialogue with Nigerian government let alone INEC, an agency of the clueless government of Nigeria. It is an insult coming from a body known for fraudulently imposing and installing electoral criminals on the people.
“We found laughable the declaration by the Nigeria Police that they are coming to Anambra State governorship election on the 6th of November with 33,000 personnel and eight helicopters to kill Igbo citizens on that day.
“This statement from the Police IGP, shows how prepared they are to kill our people and also a clear indication that Nigeria Police and the cabal do not want the election in Anambra State to hold.
“We also want to place on record that the plan by the Nigeria Police to deploy over 33,000 policemen and three helicopters, among others to Anambra State for the November 6 governorship election is another ploy to kill more innocent Biafrans.”
IPOB stated that the deployment of more security operatives to the state was a ploy to kill more Igbo youths.
The group advised southeasterners in Anambra State to be very cautious of what they described as a wicked plot.
