The leader of the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (Ipob) Nnamdi Kanu has said the only way to stop a dictator is boycotting elections.

Ipob had said it will boycott the 2019 presidential election billed for February 16 and instead use the day for Biafra referendum.

And in a tweet on his Twitter handle, Kanu quoted the Venezuelan leader Nicolás Maduro and saying that the boycott of elections is the only way to cripple dictators.

“An election boycott is the smartest way to cripple evil dictators and their sham elections,” he wrote.

“Ask Ian Smith of Zimbabwe, De Klerk of South Africa and now – Maduro of Venezuela.”

According to him, “When you participate in sham elections, you bestow legitimacy on such election. You become complicit.”

In another related Biafra News,  Ipob has said the election boycott will be a statement on the Biafran struggle.

According to the statement, “in order to live as free men under God in a new republic of Biafra, we must not only stay indoors on the 16th of February 2019, we must ensure that Biafraland is completely locked down and anybody or family found outside on election day will perpetually suffer the ignominy of being labelled a traitor; a burden that family will bear till eternity.”
