IPOB Denies Withdrawing Threat to Stop Anambra Election

On Friday there were reports that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has withdrawn its threat to disrupt the conduct of the November 18 governorship election after Kanu had a meeting with the Ala-Igbo International Foundation.

The media aide to Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Darlington Okolie has denied a report that IPOB has withdrawn its threat to stop the November governorship election scheduled to hold in Anambra state.

On Friday there were reports that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has withdrawn its threat to disrupt the conduct of the November 18 governorship election after Kanu had a meeting with the Ala-Igbo International Foundation.

Refuting the report, Okolie stated that IPOB has not changed its initial position of boycotting the Anambra election.

In a statement on Sahara Reporters, Okolie said, “Whoever said that there has been a shift in IPOB’s position is telling lies. The media is fond of spreading falsehood about us. Kanu can never go back on his word.

“There will be no election in Anambra. There is nothing anybody can do about this. Any media that is reporting that Kanu has withdrawn his call to boycott Anambra election is simply publishing false reportage.”

Okolie also revealed that there would be a mass rally on August 19, adding that Kanu would use the event to openly declare his position that the governorship election must be boycotted.
