The leader of the indigenous peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has dismissed rumors that he has agreed to take part in the upcoming Nigeria elections.
In a brief speech address to Biafrans and saboteurs alike, he maintained his stance on the election boycott.
He said some mischievous people twisted what he said in the previous broadcast where he said Ebonyi and Abia state governorship elections would be an exception to the election boycott rule to mean he had called off boycotting the presidential elections.
He accused some mischievous characters who pretend they are with IPOB and Biafra Restoration but in reality, were only shouting “All hail Biafra” just to build up social media followers to endear themselves to politicians.
He warned that these characters are actually more interested in Nigeria politics with some working for APC and some others working for PDP.
The IPOB leader warned of the increasing number of Saboteurs and fake Igbo groups who have been raised by politicians to cause confusion among the Indigenous Peoples Of Biafra regarding the election boycott.
Nnamdi Kanu reiterated that Okezie Ikpeazu and Dave Umahi will be removed regardless of their claims that former governor Mr. Orji Uzor Kalu was responsible for bringing the Nigeria army to kill IPOB members in Umuahia.
He said Orji Uzor Kalu may have supported the python dance plan but he didn’t order the exercise because he had no power to do so.
Kanu said the proposed election boycott still stands unless their demands were met.
“We IPOB are going to boycott this forthcoming election starting with the February 16th presidential elections, we are going to boycott it.
“Understand this very clearly, there will be no ambiguity.
Outlining the reason for the election boycott, he said IPOB was not about to forget those that died during operation python dance which alone is reason enough to boycott the election.
He revealed there are tough challenges and interests against this noble quest of Biafra Restoration but IPOB will not be deterred.
He maintained that the man responsible for the death of Biafrans in Umuahia will not be allowed back into the office.
He encouraged Biafrans to be steadfast, consistent and resolute in their journey to freedom.
He said that the evil Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu and Willie Obiano committed is unpardonable and for this reason, they’ll be removed from their positions either by voting them out or otherwise.
He also noted that in a bizarre twist of reality, the Hausa born governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha never ordered the killing of any IPOB members despite the numerous protests held in his state.
“Isn’t it bizarre that this half Fulani, half whatever he is, had the common sense to say nobody should open fire on IPOB..?
This weaklings who call themselves South East governors will never recommend the proscription of Miyetti Allah as a terrorist group despite the mayhem unleashed by Fulani Herdsmen but had the audacity to proscribe peaceful IPOB members who haven’t killed anyone.
He warned those that are impatient to calm down and not to rush into arms confrontation with the Islamic Jihadist caliphate in power until the time is right.
He said everything has its time and place and that things needed to be done accordingly.
“Has anyone seen or heard such an anomaly before?
Where a known terrorist group enjoys the protection of the army whereas peaceful protesters are massacred at will with no attending consequences.
“How can we vote for the president of a country where terrorists are hailed and treated with kid gloves while peaceful non-violent movement is labeled a terrorist group.
“We have this warped sense of reasoning in the ZOO because that part of the world is littered with people who are steeped in evil and the politicians they have connive with the enemy to kill civilians.
“Fulani Herdsmen are all over the place but Igbo governors and Abuja errand boys are busy doing their damn best to demonize IPOB.
If you feel what we are passing through in Nigeria is unacceptable, then we must boycott the upcoming presidential elections on the 16th of February.
The whole world is watching.
Kanu then went on to answer some questions to clear the air of any doubts regarding the election and other issues.
One listener asked the IPOB leader what soup he advised Biafrans prepare on that day of the election boycott, Kanu suggested Biafrans should prepare Okazi soup as they observed the Sit-At-Home mandate.
