Anambra Poll: Address IPOB's threat, group tells Police

14 November 2017

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has made a fresh call on Ndigbo to totally boycott the Anambra State governorship election slated for Saturday, next week.

"If you vote you will die. Those behind this would be disappointed because we are very ready for the election".

Their key message is that Anambrarians should boycott the election; threatening that whoever votes will die.

The IPOB, through its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had earlier said unless the Nigerian State calls for a referendum to determine the status of the country, there would be no election in Anambra State.

Human rights groups under the aegis of the Southeast Based Coalition of Human Rights Organizations (SCBHROs) have urged registered voters in Anambra State to exercise their rights and vote in the November 18 governorship election in the state.

The group said instead of watching out for disturbances from IPOB, Anambra people should better be careful of security agents who have been dispatched to the state to kill and maim its citizens.

Regardless of the threats and uncertainty, the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof Mahmud Yakub and the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris will Tuesday meet with candidates of the Anambra governorship election.

The CDD also warned that the security forces should not use excessive force in case of any skirmishes arising during the election, adding that the Operation Python Dance 11 has elicited so much pain and emotional anguish within the Igbo community.

"It is also important to note that if IPOB engages in violence and disrupts the election and their activities lead to a declaration of a state of emergency on Anambra state, it is IPOB that will lose its social capital".

"We hereby warn all commercial vehicle operators to please stay away from Anambra State starting from the evening of the 17th of November because any vehicle seen will be regarded as hostile and working to subvert the will of the people".

"I am the governor of Anambra state and all the paraphernalia of my office must be there".

"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. "This is scary", one of them said.

"Assurances by security agencies only represent necessary first steps".

This was disclosed in a statement by Mr. Jimoh Moshood, Force Public Relations Officer.

The statement also declared that Commissioners of Police and personnel in the states contiguous to Anambra State have been put on red-alert not to allow an influx of miscreants and thugs into Anambra State. "Voters are therefore implored to turn out en masse, without fear of intimidation, and freely cast their votes", he said. We want the federal government to produce Nnamdi Kanu with immediate effect or there will be no peace.
