Barely three months to Anambra November 18 gubernatorial poll, the leader of Indigenous people of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has postulated that God will rekindle His anger on the people of Anambra State if November 18 election is allowed to hold.

Kanu, who on Tuesday, sneaked into Nri, the ancestral home of Igbo land in Anaocha Local Government area of Anambra state, maintained that the state gubernatorial poll will never hold unless acting President Yemi Osinbajo gives him date for referendum.

While addressing over 2000 members of IPOB, Kanu noted that the only way Biafran independent can be achieved is to boycott all elections in the Biafran land, adding that anybody that defiles the order will have himself to be blamed.

“Anybody that stands on the way of Biafra will be destroyed. I have not made any pronouncement that did not come to pass. I am saying that there will be no election in Anambra state on November 18.

“Nobody can stop IPOB. Biafran land is grossly marginalised; we have no good road, no electricity, no source of water and so on. I am sure that Buhari will not come back again and if anybody said there will be no Biafra, what happened to Buhari will happen to the person” he warned.

Earlier, Kanu paid a visit to the Nri King maker, Chief Shedrack Mbanefo (Adama Nri) who prayed for him and assured him of Igbo support for the struggle and Biafran emancipation.

“Kanu’s visit to the ancestral home of Adama Nri is a mystery and spiritual and this is an indication that Biafran sovereignty will be achieved. May God continue to bless him and his family as he champions the Biafran course” he said.

He was later accompanied by Adama Nri and other elders of Nri Community to Nri garden of Edem (Okefi forest) where he prayed for Biafran freedom.

Meanwhile, the Joint Security Task Force in Anambra State which include the Navy, Army, Police NSCDC and the NDLEA at the end of its joint meeting, yesterday in Awka enjoined members of the public to disregard the pronouncement by Indigenous People Of Biafra  IPOB, and  go about their lawful businesses as the security agencies has pledged their readiness to protect lives and properties of citizens.

Speaking on behalf of the group, the State Commissioner of Police, CP Garba Baba Umar, said they have started strategising towards securing lives and properties of the populace, and  to forestall unlawful breakdown of peace and order following  the activities of some misguided elements who have perfected plans to disrupt  the relative peace through streets protests aimed at boycotting the Anambra November poll.

Umar added that measures have been put in place by joint security forces in Anambra State to stop unlawful acts during and after the election, adding that the “miscreants planning stop the election want  to achieve selfish interest to the detriment of democratic processes.

"This is unacceptable and would not be tolerated in the state as the command and other Sister Security agencies respect the Rights of individuals to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly" he said.

He noted that  the governorship  election  has been scheduled  for November 18, 2017 by the Independent  National Election Commission (INEC), which he said is the only competent authority to make pronouncement regarding the conduct of elections.
