The Independent People of Biafra, IPOB who for some time now have been agitating for the secession of the Biafran Republic from Nigeria has sent a message to all of its members to sit at home during next month’s Governorship elections in Anambra State.
IPOB, who were most recently proscribed as a terrorist organisation by the federal government has enjoined its members to boycott the elections and ensure that nobody close to them exercises his franchise, citing this as a possible wild card to the achievement of their goal, a Republic of Biafra.
The group marked the present events in Spain with Catalonia seeking a referendum and Iraq with the Kurds also seeking a Republic as two notable events which has spurred IPOB into fighting for what they want irrespective of the nuances of the federal government.
In a statement released to journalists through its Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB said; “Every genuine Biafran desiring of freedom for Biafra from this Islamic bondage of Hausa Fulani caliphate called Nigeria, must not only stay at home on that day, but must also make sure those around them do not vote. November 18, 2017 is a date with history.
“If we Biafrans succeed in demonstrating before international observers that we are serious about our freedom by locking down Anambra State on that day, the world will be in no doubt that Biafra is unstoppable. Our destiny is firmly in our hands.
“We must teach corrupt Igbo politicians that money cannot buy IPOB because we are special breed untainted by the corrupt tendencies of Nigerian politics. Locking down Anambra State will pave the way for IPOB to announce a date for substantive referendum later next year with or without the approval of Nigeria.”
“Boycotting this election is the only legitimate tool left in the hands of oppressed people to register their displeasure with the ongoing genocide, arbitrary arrests and torture across Biafraland.”
“We are therefore asking every Biafran and IPOB member who believe in the supremacy of the restoration of Biafra over deceitful game of Nigerian politics to sit at home and not venture outdoor on the 18th November 2017 no matter the amount of threat.
“IPOB under the supreme command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is determine to show the world how serious we are towards the restoration of Biafra. Come the 18th of November, the world will know that Biafrans cannot participate in a fraudulent election organised by those that came to our land, killed us and when we complained, they tagged us terrorists.
“We must remain strong and resolute before our enemies as our leader taught us. We have come too far to allow propaganda and blackmail to derail us. As the blessed children of the Most High, it is our duty to let the world know that terrorists don’t vote,” the statement concluded.
Recall that IPOB have had several battles with officers of the Nigerian Military over their agitation for a Republic of Biafra which gave birth to the “Operation Python Dance” by the Nigerian Military.
