The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has pledged not to disrupt this year’s general elections, which start with Presidential election on February 25 across the country.

“IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has never forcefully obstructed the election process in Nigeria. Rather, we once called Biafrans to boycott elections, which was later called off.”

In a statement today, February 2, IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said that the group has no interest in Nigeria’s election but is focused on the release of Nnamdi Kanu, its leader, who is in detention.

“IPOB has no plan or intention to order any sit-at-home during the election period,” it said.

“We have maintained that we don’t have any interest in the Nigeria shambolic political selection process called Nigeria elections scheduled for February 2023.

“Our interest and focus is the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the date for Biafra referendum for Biafrans to determine their political future in or outside Nigeria.”

The group warned another group known as Pan Nigeria President of Igbo Extraction Coalition (PANPIEC) to stop linking it to criminal gang issuing and enforcing sit-at-home orders to blackmail IPOB and ESN.

“It’s on record and in the public domain that IPOB has not called for any sit-at-home during February elections. It’s also obvious that IPOB and ESN do not have any faction or splinter groups,” it added.

“IPOB remains peaceful and indivisible under one command for the liberation of Biafra Nation from the damnable Republic called Nigeria.”

It added that any group claiming to be IPOB and ordering sit-at-home is criminal and be regarded as a “sponsored” agent.
