IPOB Mocks Obi Of Onitsha Over Statement Concerning Anambra Elections Boycott, Says, 'We Will Show You What We Are Made Of On November 18'

Pro-Biafra group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has responded to a statement credited to the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe, that “IPOB has no right to stop elections in Anambra state”.

According to reports, IPOB declared that traditional title holders cannot set the agenda for the group, even though they are entitled to their own opinions.

IPOB’s response was contained in a statement signed by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.

It read: “IPOB is a well-known peace loving organization around the globe which has not been involved in violent activities in Nigeria, but have been violently attacked by the Hausa Fulani dominated security apparatus in Nigeria, who derive joy in killing the innocent members of IPOB.

“We respect our elders and traditional title holders, like Igwe Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe, the Obi of Onitsha and others who are making different statements regarding the IPOB decision to boycott elections in Biafra land starting from Anambra state election unless they give us a date for Biafra restoration.

“We believe they are entitled to their opinion but they cannot intimidate or set agenda for IPOB members from carrying out our decision. And they should know that they are human beings and cannot challenge IPOB worldwide.

“However, anybody who wants to come out and vote is free, but IPOB will not stop to fulfill the promise of boycotting the Anambra State Governorship election, come November 18, 2017 and we promise Igwe Achebe to come out and vote.

“IPOB will prove its formidability to Igwe Achebe and his likes on that very particular day that we are not politicians and we are not playing politics with Biafra restoration project because Biafra independence is the future of our children and unborn children.”

Meanwhile, TariTaribo'sBlog (TTB), had previously reported that a day after the Biafran Reformation Movement criticized Nnamdi Kanu's call for boycott of Anambra election, the director general of the Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria (MOBIN), and former aide to the IPOB leader under Radio Biafra, Ezenwanyi Eberechukwu Anigbogu, told newsmen that Kanu has no power to stop elections in southeastern Nigeria.

Her statements came on the heels of a vigorous campaign by Nnamdi Kanu's faction of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for a boycott of elections in Anambra state.
