Pro-Biafra agitators.

The pan Igbo socio-cultural group Ohanaeze Ndigbo has called on voters in the South East to shun the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).

IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu who is leading the quest for Biafra’s secession from Nigeria had urged the Igbos to boycott the 2019 election.

Kanu and his group, has instead fixed February 16, the same day as Nigeria’s presidential election, for the Biafra referendum.

However, the Ohanaeze President General, Nnia Nwodo has told the people and residents of the region to shun IPOB’s call.

Nwodo said this in a statement on Thursday in Enugu, adding that the elections were very important to Ndigbo.

In another Biafra news, IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu has berated the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) for not airing the full interview he had with them.

Kanu, according to a tweet on his handle, had revealed how the BBC Igbo service cut his interview with them into eight minutes.

He revealed that not airing the full version of the interview will not create the room for objectivity.

Kanu thus urged them to air the full interview.
