The commander of the Biafra Secret Service (BSS) recently inuagurated by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu has vowed that the scheduled Anambra election will not hold.

Kenneth Ezekwesiri said the election can only hold when all the BSS officers are dead.

Speaking during a solidarity march on Friday, September 1, in some communities in Ebonyi state, Ezekwesiri said the BSS stand by Kanu's declaration that election will not take place in Anambra.

Stating that the BSS was established by the IPOB leader to secure all territories in the south-south and south-east, Ezekwesiri said the service is operating in a covert manner.

“Nnamdi Kanu established the Biafra Secret Service to help in the security of Biafra territory. We are working underground such that the Nigerian Government doesn’t know how we operate.

“All we are agitating is that we are tired of being in this contraption called Nigeria. We are tired of the Nigerian government. And we matching along these major roads are to tell the people that there will be no more Nigerian election in Biafran land," Ezekwesiri said.

We are taking the message to every nook and cranny of Biafran land to tell them not to acquire the Nigeria’s voter’s card not to talk of their election.

“We are going to use Anambra state to set an example so that other states in Biafran land will learn. We are sure and we are going to assure them that there will be no election in Anambra State. The message is that there will be no election in Biafran land starting from Kogi, Benue, Edo, Delta, Enugu, Imo, Abia, Ebonyi, Port Harcourt, Bayelsa, Cross River, Akwa Ibom and others.

“It will be over our dead bodies to see election hold in Anambra state. The south-east governors knows what was going to happen that was why they invited him to a meeting in Enugu," Ezekwesiri said.

Also speaking on the meeting between Kanu and some of the south-east governors, Ezekwesiri said the leader of the IPOB's effort will amount to nothing if elections hold in the state.

He said: "The governors invited him to negotiate and take money just like Uwazurike did but the man was standing on his words. He made them understand that if he allows election to hold in Anambra State, then he has been doing nothing."

“The federal government is just backing like toothless bulldog. He said that he wants to arrest our messiah, Nnamdi Kanu, the messiah who will lead us to the Promised Land. How can somebody who did not go to school want to arrest a graduate?

If you say that Biafrans cannot go then he must give us real restructuring. But you know what, he cannot offer it," he said.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Kanu had insisted that there is no going back in his declaration for the boycott of election by IPOB members.

Kanu after a meeting with his father and governors of the south-east region said elections will not hold in Anambra on November 18.
