The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has alleged that some unscrupulous elements and groups are working to rig the ongoing Anambra State governorship election.
IPOB claims that the groups are working to upturn the results of Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Emma Powerful, spokesman of the separatist group disclosed this in a statement he signed on Tuesday.
Powerful reiterated that IPOB has no political affiliation in the state, but is concerned about the well-being of people of the Southeast.
According to Powerful: “We have intercepted credible intelligence reports that some unscrupulous elements and groups are making frantic efforts to upturn the overriding decision of Ndi Anambra at Ihiala.
“It is common knowledge that IPOB has no political affiliation or affinity with anybody.
“Our preoccupation has been the preservation, protection and projection of well-being of Biafraland nothing more.
“This informs why we had to call off the Sit At Home to enable our people to participate in choosing who governs them.
“It will be foolhardy for us to lift the Sit At Home order only for strangers to stampede the will of the people.
“IPOB has been compelled by exigencies to send this warning to those being used to subvert the Peoples’ Mandate. Let the Peoples’ will prevail.”
This is coming at a time when ESN members, a militant arm of IPOB allegedly engaged security operatives in a gun battle in Ihiala.
