Anambra Govt. Elections: IPOB Threaten To Kill Voters

Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra have threatened to kill voters during the governorship election in Anambra State.
According to a report by Punch, barely one week to the state's governorship election, the proscribed group vowed to disrupt the election and threatened voters with death.

It was further reported that members of the group marched around some streets in Onitsha, Anambra State on Friday, November 10, 2017 to announce their intentions.

The Anambra governorship election is scheduled to hold on Saturday, November 18, 2017.

In the videos circulating online, the IPOB members said, “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.

“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.”

The IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, noted that the purpose of the demonstration in Onitsha was to show the world that “the threat of bullet” would not stop the group from realising its aim of having Biafra Republic.

Powerful said, “Today in Onitsha, we broke the python Buratai, Ohanaeze, Obiano and Igbo governors brought to our land. Anybody doubting the resolve of IPOB under the supreme command of Nnamdi Kanu is mistaken.
