No threat to political rallies in South-East – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said there is no threat to political rallies in the South-East.

This comes amid political parties failing to schedule their rallies on Mondays in the South-East due to fear of unknown gunmen.

Mondays are usually declared sit-at-home by IPOB in honour of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is in the custody of Department for State Services.

Reacting that claims that IPOB would not allow rallies on Mondays in the South-East, the group’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful said, “No threat whatsoever because we have cancelled the non-existent Monday sit-at-home order since, but what the political parties should know is that there is insecurity in the South-East and nobody should blame IPOB for any eventuality.

“IPOB is not interested in their jamboree selection process called Nigerian election.

“They are free to do their campaign but what we will not accept is a situation where they will clash with their political opponents and they will now blame it on IPOB.”
