Following a sustained campaign by some agitators, particularly the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for the boycott of the November 18th governorship election in Anambra State, the Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has warned against bloodshed on the election day.

The group also advised pro Biafra elements not to harass those who do not share or buy into their ideology especially non indigenes of the state.

BNYL leader, Princewill Obuka, in a statement, said the group has no plans to directly or indirectly get involved in the boycott, as it recognises the right of the people to vote at the election.

He urged pro Biafrans groups not to threaten, intimidate or harm those who may likely come out to vote on the election day.

Obuka said: “We know boycott is another form of protest, and voting is all about right. If pro Biafrans don’t want to vote, the government can’t use force on them.”

BNYL said it is interested in how Biafrans will take total charge of every structure within the old Eastern region.

“We are watching, studying and learning from Catalonia and Southern Cameroons, the political leaders are sincere and we are seeing cooperation that exists between separatists leaders and the regional authorities,” the secessionist group said.
