IPOB Rejects Dialogue with INEC over Anambra Election


The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, yesterday, rejected dialogue with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, warning it not to drag its name into the November 6, 2021 Anambra State governorship election.

The pro-Biafra group also described as laughable, the statement by the Nigerian Police that it is coming to Anambra State for the November  6, 2021 governorship  election with 33,000 personnel and eight helicopters, saying that the implication of that statement by the Police is that they (Police) do not want the election to hold that day.

The separatist group in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, categorically stated that it has no interest in Anambra State governorship election and as such, will not entertain any dialogue being planned by INEC.

“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.

“This confirms our fears and earlier intelligence that the   security agents have perfected plans to use the election to force more Biafra youths to their early graves.

“We therefore, wish to advise Biafrans in Anambra State to be very cautious of this wicked plot and  not play into their hands.”
