IPOB Still Protest Against Nov. 18 Election in Anambra

IPOB Still Protest Against Nov. 18 Election in Anambra

Abuja (Sundiata Post)- As Anambra gubernatorial election draws closer, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, on Sunday, warned members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) to keep off the state.

"If you vote you will die". In addition, other security and safety agencies, which are members of Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) in the state are also deployed to complement the Police.

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.

This came just as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) expressed dismay over the alleged statement that sensitive materials meant for the governorship election have been intercepted by the police in an undisclosed hotel in Awka. No armed security personnel will be allowed within the polling units. Powerful basted, making reference to the now concluded Operation Python dance of the Nigerian Army.

According to Ogene, "Anambra people have agreed that there will be election in the state".

"There are many people out there working seriously to see that the commission fails in its commitment to recording free, fair and credible election and you must have this in mind".

The state's governorship election is scheduled to hold on November 18.




"Sequel to forthcoming governorship election, I hereby inform the general public that the election petition tribunal for governorship in Anambra has been constituted".

"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.

Also, Jimoh Moshood, the Force spokesperson, warned the IPOB members not to interfere with the election process in their own interest, adding that the police would deal with them "the way an outlawed group should be dealt with".

The coalition also condemned the federal government's massive deployment of armed security operatives to the state to provide security formations before and during the Saturday election.

"We will want to appeal to all the contestants to play by the rules and also speak to their supporters on the need to have a peaceful election". "Voters are therefore implored to turn out en masse, without fear of intimidation, and freely cast their votes", he said. In a statement signed by the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner for Anambra, Mr. Nkwachukwu Orji, it stated that there would be a meeting between the agency and the political partiesand its flagbearers at the Prof Dora Akunyili Women's Development Centre, towards assuring the candidates of a level playing field.

The report went further to disclose that it is likely that six LGAs may witness low voter turnout as a result of the IPOB call for election boycott, adding that these LGAs are the strongholds of IPOB and are likely to mobilise members and sympathizers to boycott the governorship election.
