Earlier, the IPOB leader had reiterated that members of his group and all “Biafrans” will boycott this month’s Presidential election in Nigeria, noting that Biafra referendum will hold same day with the Nigerian election.
Kanu also called on IPOB members and all “Biafrans” to sit at home and be counted on the day of the referendum for the Republic of Biafra.
The secessionist leader had tweeted: “Join me on Radio Biafra Saturday, February 2, 2019, at 6 PM Biafraland time.
“It’s going to be my first broadcast from our London studio in 4 four years. Biafra Referendum is on February 16, 2019. Sit-at-home and be counted,” the tweet added.
Newstor reports that Kanu is leading a group seeking secession from Nigeria. The group has since been proscribed by the Nigerian government.
