The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said they are not interested in the upcoming Anambra gubernatorial election. In a statement on Thursday by its Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, the secessionist group said its demand for the release of Kanu was because the authorities allegedly planned to perpetually keep him in detention, “through frivolous court adjournments.”

The statement read, “For the sake of clarity, what we said was that the entire Biafra land would be locked down from November 5 to November 10, 2021, if by November 4, the Federal Government fails to release our leader, Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally.

“Our position has nothing to do with Anambra election. All we need is the release of our leader, who committed no crime to be held perpetually in custody. We have gathered through intelligence the plot by Nigerian government to keep our leader in detention perpetually through frivolous court adjournments.

“Politicians must leave IPOB out of their predicaments. They should stop dragging IPOB into their election. We knew their evil plans when they were killing their fellow politicians and blaming it on IPOB. They should leave us alone.”
