Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has called off the election boycott in the south-east region of the country two days to the elections.
Nnamdi made this known via social media where he noted that preconditions and terms which they demanded have been met.
Dedicating the victory to his ipob members worldwide Nnamdi Kanu tweeted:
“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.”
It is unclear what conditions exactly have been met as Nnamdi Kanu’s previous demands had been that the Government agree to a referendum by the the people of Biafra who wished to separate from Nigeria.
In a broadcast obtained Thursday night, Kanu said unnamed individuals have met the demands given by the group before any election could be held in the south-east reports the cable.
“Earlier today, February 14, 2019, I received confirmation from our team that all of our pre-conditions played before those kicking off to call off the elections have been met. And in view of that, I hereby lift the boycott of elections.
“IPOB was very steadfast, we have fought a very good battle; we have made it very clear to all and sundry that we are very determined and this is victory for IPOB and for the emancipation of Biafra.”
