The Indigenous People of Biafra ( IPOB) have stated that no matter what happens, they will be boycotting the general elections set to take place next year.

They made this known in a statement issued by the deputy Leader of the group, Mr Uche Mefor who was responding to criticisms levelled against the body by Mr Askari Dokubo

In the statement, Mefor said: “You cry everyday that the constitution is a fraud, the election rigged,  INEC  used as electoral tool to manipulate results and yet you senselessly or naively continue and want people to vote and yet you are a freedom fighter?

“Look, IPOB cannot mutate and certainly don’t change course midflight , IPOB remains ideologically consistent.

“Do your own and we do our own and in the end we take stock. IPOB refuses to betray the trust of her followers or sell them by joining Nigerian politics”, Mefor said

There was also a veiled threat in there as the group stated that it might have to start doing things differently if their demands were not met.

“Our demands must be met or we apply another sophisticated strategy if the anomaly subsists” the IPOB leader said

“In the final analysis , it is my considered opinion that those who are suggesting that we change course are at best insincere.

“They know right from the beginning that the end result in joining Nigerian politics is total failure with respect to BIAFRA .

“Bewarned, be focused, be vigilant for wolves are on the rampade. Rally round our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and together, we shall eventually prevail” he said
