USELSS ORDER: Kanu, IPOB Disgraced As 2017 Shocking Story Repeated Itself


While the elected President and governors have the constitutional rights to give orders that everyone must follow, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, over the years has unconstitutional order its members in Southeastern Nigeria to sit- at- home even though it’ s against the wishes of the political leaders in the region.

However, the group was unable to carry out their threat to boycott elections in the region as the shocking incident of 2017 was repeated.

2019: No Referendum No Elections In Southeast– Nnamdi Kanu

The IPOB agitating group dreams that the federal government should allow the people of the Southeast to determine their future through a referendum which is a general vote by the electorate on a single political question that has been referred to them for a direct decision.


The inability of the federal government to grant the simple request of the group, forced their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to declare that no election will hold in Biafraland.

” In 2019, the whole of Biafra land will not vote for any president. There will be no Senator, there will be no House of Reps, there will be no House of Assembly and there will be no Councilor- ship elections in Biafra land if they fail to call for a referendum.


” Nigerian government should build as many prisons as possible to jail all Biafrans because there is no going back and we are ready to go there unless the federal government gives us Biafra, ” Nnamdi Kanu stated on June 23, 2017, two years to the 2019 presidential election as reported by The Vanguard.

The people of the Southeast region were in fear during the power tussle between the separatist group and the Nigerian government pro to 2019 general election.

However, IPOB and its leader couldn’ t uphold the order to the Election Day as they called it off a few days to the election.

February 15, 2019: Nnamdi Kanu Called Off Election Boycott

The Nigerian Constitution explained in detail the right of every citizen to vote and be voted for during the electoral process. However, the fear of being intimidated, harassed, or even killed while enjoying their constitutional rights has forced many Nigerians to remain in their respective home during elections.


In 2019, the order from Nnamdi Kanu added to the pre- election tension until the authority of the IPOB called it off some days to the election.

According to a report by The Vanguard, the IPOB took the decision after a brief emergency session of the Directorate of State of the group led by Nnamdi Kanu.

The group revealed that all their terms and conditions had been met, therefore the election boycott is no more effective.


” It’ s important we notify the world at large and the indefatigable global IPOB family in particular that our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has called off the election boycott in Biafraland.

” After a brief emergency session of the Directorate of State late last night presided over by our leader, it was determined that all our terms and conditions had been met by those wishing us to lift the ban on voting, it was unanimously agreed that the boycott should be lifted, ” the statement released by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful disclosed.


2019 general election was held in the Southeast region, and the Ndigbo voted for their preferred candidates. Yet it didn’ t end there as the agitating group gave another confusing order days to the 2021 governorship election in Anambra State.

IPOB Disclosed That Biafraland Must Be Lockdown From 5th to 10th November

In Anambra State, while politicians were busy preparing for the coming governorship election, IPOB was battling with the federal government to secure the freedom of Nnamdi Kanu who was arrested and brought to Nigeria to continue his trial of 2017.

At first, it seemed like the freedom of Kanu and the Anambra election are two distinct aims until the authority of the separatist group declared a sit- at- home order which will certainly affect the electoral process.

” We the great movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), wish to inform Biafrans, friends of Biafra and lovers of freedom that IPOB will lock down Biafra land from 5th of November to 10th of November except Sunday, November 7th, a day our people worship the Almighty God, Chukwu Okike Abiama, if the Nigeria Government fails to release our leader unconditionally before 4th of November 2021, ” IPOB through Emma Powerful disclosed.


Although IPOB explained that the order is not meant to boycott the coming Anambra election, but to secure the release of their leader, it has been faulted by many Nigerians who said it won’ t allow the people of Anambra to come out and vote for their candidates.

IPOB Called Off Sit- At- Home Hours To Election

History repeated itself as the IPOB replicated what they did hours to the 2019 general election. The sit- at- home order in the Southeast was called off a few hours before the governorship election.

Emma Powerful who disclosed the new development said the decision was reached after the intervention of Southeast elders, traditional and religious leaders into the issue.

Powerful said, ” Following the genuine intervention of our elders, esteemed traditional institutions /rulers and religious leaders, and after due consideration of the positive impacts of their engagement, and sequel to the fact that our elders have spoken in our terms, the Leadership of IPOB ably led by MAZI NNAMDI Kanu hereby and immediately CALL OFF THE ONE WEEK SIT AT HOME earlier declared to commence tomorrow, November 5 to November 10, 2021. ”

All Eyes On The 2023 General Election

2023 will be another interesting political year in Nigeria as the country prepares for a general election.

Nobody could predict what might happen to the IPOB separatist group before 2023. Therefore, it is difficult to determine the strategy that the group will use in the coming days.
