IPOB explains Southeast street march, threatens to boycott 2019 polls
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said it’s march across some states in the southeast yesterday was to showcase their readiness to boycott the 2019 general elections.
They said the march held under the aegis of IPOB Volunteers was to register their happiness over the second coming and reappearance of their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in Jerusalem last month.
According to a statement by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said the march held across Biafraland like Rivers, Enugu, Abia, Anambra, Delta, Imo, Ebonyi, Cross Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa and other Biafra clans and tribes fraudulently caved into Kogi, Benue and Edo States.
He said the efforts by IPOB family worldwide to restore Biafra sovereignty must continue until Nigeria Government and her handlers give date for Biafra referendum.
The statement read: “We are equally showcasing to the world that we are ready to boycott every Nigerian elections come 2019, especially presidential election.
“Our march today on the roads and streets across Biafraland must send signals to politicians and saboteurs among us that Biafrans are determined to leave the prison called Nigeria where British government experimented to lead black Africans and other black nations across the globe, but failed to live up to the expectations for over 100 years, because of Hausa-Fulani dominations.
“We are much aware that some unscrupulous individuals and groups including those Biafran stocks who works with Nigeria Government and those who prefer to be slaves in their own fathers land to the detriment of Biafra restoration project. IPOB is divinely ordained to restore Biafra sovereignty out of this enclave called Nigeria.”
