The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu on Wednesday said Nigerians in the South East are free to participate in the forthcoming general elections.
Kanu had on several fora urged the people of the South East to boycott the forthcoming elections in a bid to push for the actualisation of Biafra.
However, the IPOB leader declared that those who wish to renew their “slave status in Nigeria” are free to participate in the coming elections.
In a tweet, Kanu, however, reiterated his earlier call for sit-at-home order during the presidential election on February 16.
He wrote: “We in #IPOB recognise that freedom fighting is about philosophical purity and ideological consistency not pandering to political short-termism.
“Those that wish to renew their slave status in #Nigeria are free to vote.
“On February 16, 2019, #SitAtHome in Biafraland.”
