Many Nigerians have torn through the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu over his directive to IPOB members to stay indoors during the 2019 general elections.

The controversial leader of the group proscribed by the Federal Government of Nigeria has been vigorously campaigning for a sit-at-home by the Igbos during the upcoming general elections in Nigeria.

According to Kanu, the only way to stop a dictator is boycotting elections.

And in one of his tweets 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.”

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

However, Kanu’s stance on the election has not gone down well with a lot of Nigerians who are on Twitter expressing their anger over what they perceived as the IPOB leader’s ploy to disrupt the elections.
