Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has called off the boycott order he issued ahead of the 2019 general election.

According to Kanu, who tweeted this on Thursday night, said certain conditions and terms have been met, hence the reason he is calling the election bycott off.

He said: “Having confirmed this evening that all our preconditions and terms have been met, signed, sealed and delivered; I hereby call-off the election boycott across Biafraland on Feb. 16, 2019.

“I dedicate this historic victory to the formidable #IPOB family worldwide.”

Meanwhile, General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin, Chief of Defence Staff, has warned that no form of intimidation or harassment would be tolerated on election days.

This was disclosed via a statement he released, he said: “Members of the public are also advised to disregard the call to stay at home on the day of the election being circulated in some parts of the country.

“The stay-at-home leaflets being circulated and similar on-line messages are part of the handiwork of mischief makers who are bent on scuttling the process and should be ignored.

“I want to assure the general public that the security services are prepared to support the Police to ensure safe conduct of the elections.”
