#AnambraDecides: Ignore 'Vote And Die' Threat, Groups Tell Anambra Residents

#AnambraDecides: Ignore 'Vote And Die' Threat, Groups Tell Anambra Residents

If you vote, you will die. We will not participate, we will not vote.

The issue of Biafra came up during a recent television debate with a number of the contestants assuring that if elected they will cure the Biafran agitation by the provision of jobs for young people in the state.

Sources within the battalion told our reporter that the IPOB members were arrested Sunday morning around Alaoji Fly Over.

However, as the confusion over whether IPOB is boycotting or disrupting the upcoming election continues, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has implored electorates in Anambra State not to give in to the antics of the anti-democratic agents and reactionary forces seeking to undermine Saturday'sgovernorship election but to make sure that every vote counts.

Videos of Saturday's protest have since gone viral on the social media.

"Today in Onitsha we broke the Python Buratai which Ohaneze, Obiano and Igbo governors brought to our land".

"We can not completely rule out the possibility of IPOB trying to disrupt the polls as they have been accused of harassing political party stalwarts and candidates, including a confrontation with incumbent Governor Willie Obiano during a church service on July 30, 2017 at St. Joseph's Catholic Church Ekwuluobia", the report said.

"Anybody doubting the resolve of IPOB under the supreme command of Nnamdi Kanu is mistaken".

Meanwhile, in a press statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, the organization urged every Biafran, both home and overseas, particularly indigenes and friends, brothers and sisters living in Biafraland to prepare for the total boycott and lock down of Anambra State.

IPOB called on all residents of the state to remain indoors on the day of the election to demonstrate their preference to Independent Biafra republic to continued slavery to a united Nigeria.

The IPOB leadership, according to the groups, should desist from further threats of violence against the Anambra State voting population and restrict its appeal for an election boycott to voluntary appeal.

"They (IPOB) should steer clear of Anambra because we have deployed enough personnel in the state; any miscreant who misbehaves would have himself to blame as he would be dealt with. IPOB should not test our will or resolve", Mr. Moshood warned.

"The troops are always on ground to prevent any breakdown of law and order during the election. As you know, the police are the first line of security and we can not usurp their role", Musa said.

He said this against the backdrop of reports that some sinister groups in the state have embarked on a door-to-door campaign to dissuade voters from turning out en masse to cast their votes during the governorship election.

"We have mastered the areas and we are familiar with the hideouts of the troublemakers".
