The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied reports that its leader Nnamdi Kanu withdrew the group's call for a boycott of the November 18, Anambra election.

The group said at no time did Kanu say IPOB will be part of the elections in the state.

Sahara Reporters reports that the media aide to the IPOB leader Darlington Okolie said the group's leadership has only one condition required for elections to hold in Anambra state.

Okolie said that Kanu has not had a change of mind regarding the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra.

He said: "Whoever said that [there has been a shift in IPOB's position] is telling lies. The media in Lagos is fond of spreading falsehood about us. Nnamdi Kanu can never go back on his word. There will be no election in Anambra."

"There is nothing anybody can do about this. Any media that is reporting that Nnamdi Kanu has withdrawn his call to boycott Anambra elections is simply practicing false reportage,” Okolie said.
