- Anambra state indigenes under the umbrella of Anambra Peoples Assembly blasted Nnamdi Kanu
- The group warned the IPOB leader to stay clear of Anambra election
- They argued that Nnamdi Kanu chas no right to other people to boycott the November 2017 election in Anambra state
Anambra state indigenes under the umbrella of Anambra Peoples Assembly have warned Indigenous People of Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu, to stay away from Anambra election in November 2017.
Recall that NAIJ.com earlier reported that IPOB, led by Nnamdi Kanu, had urged Anambra people to boycott the governorship election slated for November.
In a statement signed by its coordinator, Mazi Nnamdi Okorafor, the group noted that the people of Anambra State were law-abiding and will not be dragged along by any individual or group of persons.
He said: “I will assume that there are no men in Igbo land, if we allow a small boy to drag all of us into war against Nigeria through hate speech.
“Nnamdi Kanu is making a fool of himself, very soon his paymasters will distance themselves from him. He and his illiterate minions will be dancing alone in the market square Unclad. Being Igbo does not mean you are an IPOB member, neither does being an IPOB leader makes you the leader of the Igbos.
“Let truth be told. But with due respect to the right thinking and illustrious sons and daughters of Abia State. Let me ask these questions, When did an Abia man become wiser than the Anambra man to warrant a confusionist like Nnamdi Kanu to order Anambra people not to vote while his Abia governor is still on seat?
“Why would the good, wise and hard-working Anambra sons and daughters listen to a guy man who kept his wife and kids in London come here to suggest what is capable of destroying the lives of young Anambra youths. Anambra people should not allow anybody to toy with their future and destiny.
“We agree that self-determination is the right of every person or group in Nigeria, that being said. We hereby declare that Anambra state has distanced self from Biafra struggle.
"All Biafra activists and agitators are warned to leave Anambra and return to their various states of origin.

“We are too big to be dragged along by any person or group of persons. Anambra state indigenes and lawful residents will register and participate fully in the forthcoming governorship elections of November 2017 in the state."
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com earlier reported that the Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo has warned the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to stop arrogating to itself the supreme leadership of Igbo land.
President-general of the organisation, John Nwodo, issued the warning in Awka on Thursday, June 29 while addressing members of the Anambra House of Assembly.
