Nnamdi Kanu's move against Anambra election suffers setback

- The leader of the Biafran Reformation Movement, Mr Ndubuisi Igwekani, warned that Nnamdi Kanu would cause the declaration of a state of emergency on Anambra

- Igwekani also wants Nigerians to hold Yerima Shettima of AYCF responsible for anything that happens to Igbos in the north

The Biafran Reformation Movement (BRM) has put a clog in the reported progress of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.

The BRM, on Monday July 24, while Kanu was relishing some support in Ebonyi state, said the IPOB leader was carrying out actions dangerous to the interest of the Igbo people.

While speaking with journalists in Enugu, the leader of the group, Mr Ndubuisi Igwekani, said Kanu’s call for the boycott of Anambra election was ill-mannered.

He said Kanu was behaving like an enemy to the Igbo people adding that the forthcoming election in Anambra state must hold.

According to him, if the election is scuttled, it could lead to a state of emergency being imposed on the state.

He said: “Anybody that says there won’t be election is making mistake. There must be election in Anambra state.

“If we stop the election, our enemy will impose state of emergency here and thereby bring another enemy to rule us.

“So, it is not in Igbo interest for anybody to say that there won’t be election. Kanu and those proposing this are making us to see them as enemies of Ndigbo. If a northerner should be imposed on Anambra people, it will take us 20 years back.”

He however warned that nothing must happen to Igbo people in the north.

“If anything happens to any of our people in the north, we shall hold Shettima responsible. No matter where he goes to hide, we shall get him.

“We are, therefore, calling on the Federal Government and the International community not to take it as empty threat.

“Efforts should be made to protect our people because if anything happens on the contrary, we don’t guarantee what will be the retaliatory effect here,” he said.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Igbo people living in the northern part of Nigeria must obey the quit notice issued to them by Arewa youths recently, according to a spokesperson of one of the organisations, Suleiman Abdulazeez.

Suleiman Abdulazeez’s current warning negates a report at the weekend that the national president of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), Yerima Shettima, said Igbo people in the region are now safe.
