The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday reiterated its lack of interest in next month’s general elections, declaring that the process was already rigged.

In a statement issued by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, the group said it was not interested in Nigerian politics but rather the full emancipation of Ndigbo through a referendum.

IPOB also declared that it would not call for a boycott of the elections in the southeast.

The statement read: “Although we have always said that IPOB is not interested in Nigerian politics, (they link IPOB to their plot to select Nigerian leaders in the 2023 selection).

“They are simply preparing the minds of ignorant people to blame the IPOB for their failure in an already rigged election.”
