The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has called off the election boycott the group was planning in the South East.
Kanu, on Thursday night encouraged members of the separatist group to take part in the general elections beginning on Saturday, February 16, 2019.
The IPOB leader who made the announcement on his Twitter handle, @MaziNnamdiKanu, said:
“Having confirmed this evening that all our preconditions and terms have been met, signed, sealed and delivered; I hereby call-off the election boycott across Biafraland on Feb. 16, 2019. I dedicate this historic victory to the formidable #IPOB family worldwide.”
Recall that Kanu had told members of his group to sit at home on the election day, an action he said would be used as a form of referendum “to measure those who want to remain in Nigeria and those who want Biafra freedom through a peaceful and democratic process for the sovereignty of our dear nation Biafra.”
