Ohanaeze Ndigbo warns IPOB against boycotting Anambra election

A socio-political organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has cautioned the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) against promoting election boycott in Anambra state.

Ohanaeze described those calling for the boycott of the election as enemies of the state and warned that a state of emergency may be declared if election failed to hold in Anambra.

Chairman of Ohanaeze in Anambra state, Chief Okeke Ogene, who made the statement said: "Anambra people have agreed that there will be election in the state. If there is any group saying there won't be election, we want to put it to that group that the election must hold.

"Anybody insisting that there won't be election in Anambra state is an enemy of the people.

"If such a group succeeds in creating confusion here, it will only be preparing a fertile ground for our enemies to penetrate our territory.

"And if such a thing happens, the next likely thing to happen is a state of emergency, which will not be in the interest of our people."

Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has announced that about 21,000 police officers would be deployed to Anambra state ahead of the November 18 election in the state.

The IGP, who made this statement while speaking to the State House correspondent after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, November 3, said he met with the president to discuss national security.
