Chidi Samuel || After a period of relative silence following its proscription by the federal government, the movement for the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB on Saturday threatened voters with death if they participate in the November 18, governorship election in Anambra State.
In a video on icirnigeria.org, that has gone viral, the group said that anybody that votes in the election ”will die”.
“If you vote you will die. Don’t go out, stay in your house. If you vote on November 18, you will die. We are not running around for the zoo,” the members sang as they marched around the commercial town, abutting the River Niger on Friday.
“There will be no election. We will not participate, we will not vote. Nothing concerns us with any election. We are formidable.
“We are in Onitsha to tell the Federal Government to produce Kanu. They should release all the Biafrans in Nigerian prisons.”
IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful told newsmen the group will not be deterred from achieving a Biafra Republic.
“Today in Onitsha, we broke the python Buratai, Ohanaeze, Obiano and Igbo governors brought to our land,” Powerful basted.
“Anybody doubting the resolve of IPOB under the supreme command of Nnamdi Kanu is mistaken.
“We will put Anambra State on lockdown on November 18. This is a taste of what is to come. Nigeria should be prepared.”
