IPOB members demonstrate in Onitsha

Abuja (Sundiata Post)- As Anambra gubernatorial election draws closer, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, on Sunday, warned members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) to keep off the state. If you vote on November 18, you will die.

"Let this election be conducted once and for all so that that we can rest".

The statement reads in parts: "It is imperative for all, especially those residing outside the borders of Biafraland, to make contact with their respective families at home, to convey the reason why every Biafran should boycott all future Nigerian elections, including this upcoming Anambra State governorship, scheduled for next week Saturday".

Dr Nkwachukwu Orji, the state's Resident Electoral Commissioner, assured the national chairman that staff of the commission was committed to ensuring a hitch-free election. No armed security personnel will be allowed within the polling units. "This Anambra election boycott will give our agitation unprecedented global momentum that would move world leaders to accept the inevitable democratic and peaceful break-up of Nigeria". These are our brothers who were arrested at the same time with him and they should not be forgotten. We insist on a total boycott of all elections because voting in Anambra or any other elections in Nigeria is an exercise in futility because Aso Rock has already decided who they want to be sworn in as Anambra governor despite the warm words of free and fair elections emanating from APC praise singers in the South-east.

The group warned Anambra people that the same politicians who were urging them to go ahead and cast their votes were the same people that conspired with Aso Rock cabal to bring death to the southeast through Operation Python Dance II. "To tell them that the genuine power belong to the people and we are withholding it for good and sake of our freedom", Ogbonnaya reiterated.

"INEC will get rid of you if you do the wrong thing, and you are aware that those caught in the web of such negative act during the conduct of 2015 election are still facing the music", he said.

In a statement issued yesterday by APGA's National Director of Publicity, Ifeanacho Oguejiofor, the party enjoined INEC to provide a level playing field for the 37 political parties that are participating in the forthcoming election.

"Security identification tag will be provided for all the security and safety agencies, INEC officials, election observers/monitors and others that have statutory duties to carry out in the election".

"It is therefore imperative that the Nigerian government desists from using force and militarising the state to avoid low voter turn out and also to avoid violence or a faceoff with the IPOB secessionist movement", the report said. We want the federal government to produce Nnamdi Kanu with immediate effect or there will be no peace.

He said that the commission was ready for the election and appealed to candidates to play by the rules.
