IPOB Withdraws Threat To Disrup Anambra Governorship Election


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB, has withdrawn the threat to disrupt the conduct of the governorship election in the State. According to Channel TV, the decision was reached after a meeting organised by a non-governmental organisation, the Ala-Igbo International Foundation.

The meeting was held with the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu in Owerri, Imo State capital.

The leader of the foundation, Professor Uzodinma Nwala, says after much deliberation, IPOB has assured the Igbo leaders that it won’t disrupt the November 18 governorship election.

People who are eligible to vote have also been told to go out and exercise their franchise without fear of molestation.

The Ala-Igbo Development Foundation is an Igbo group that brings together Igbo academics, elders, clerics, patriotic public figures, women and youth, both at home and abroad.

It aims at protecting and ensuring the survival of Ndigbo, their culture and civilisation as well as the development of Igbo land.

IPOB had threatened that elections would not hold in the state until a referendum was conducted to determine the future of South East.
