IPOB denies calling for a boycott of the South East election

The Indigenous People of Biafra, or IPOB, has denied calling a sit-in during the impending elections.

IPOB stated that it has no interest in Nigerian elections and so did not call for a sit-in during the February elections.

IPOB spokesman Emma Powerful stated that the group is primarily concerned with the liberation of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and the realization of Biafra.

According to Powerful, the Pan-Nigeria President of the Igbo Extraction Coalition, PANPIEC, should cease connecting IPOB to criminal gangs that are ordering sit-ins in the South East.

He stated that neither IPOB nor the Eastern Security Network, ESN, have any factions or offshoot organizations.

“It is on record and in the public domain that IPOB has not called for any sit-in during the February elections,” Powerful says.

“We restate for the records that, IPOB have not, did not and will not issue any sit-at-home order in February during the polls time.

“We also did not call for any boycott of the upcoming elections yet. Nobody should accuse or relate IPOB to government [agents] acting in the Eastern Region’s comments or actions.”
