The Biafra group said this in response to Kanu’s statement asking his members to boycott the upcoming Anambra state governorship election.
According to Punch, MASSOB also said that the IPOB leader’s actions will make the Federal Government declare a state of emergency in Anambra.
Also, the elders' council of the Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), through its spokesman, Chief Emmanuel Akabekwe called on Anambra residents to disregard the calls for a boycott.
Akabekwe said “BIM condemns in strong terms the no election order in Anambra State by Mr. Nnamdi Kanu and his IPOB group. The order does not in any way conform to any agenda needed to realise Biafra but only has the capacity of creating violence, unnecessary tension, anarchy and enthroning emergency rule in Anambra State.
“Who is Nnamdi Kanu to speak for the Igbo people? He has no capacity to give order that will stand in Igbo land. He is only trying to grab cheap relevance and popularity with the Biafra agitation.
“…We therefore call on every eligible voter in Anambra State to come out en mass without any fear of molestation and exercise their franchise by voting in candidates of their choice. That is their civic responsibility."
Nnamdi Kanu recently told newsmen that he will be happy if the Federal Government re-arrests him, adding that it will hasten the actualisation of Biafra.
