According to the video, he stated that the group would not allow any election to take place in Biafraland.
However, Powerful stated the following in a press statement issued on behalf of IPOB, ” The IPOB leadership has for the umpteenth time stated unequivocally that part of our modus operandi in our agitation for freedom has never been, is not and will not be violent agitation.
” This explains our consistent demand for the UN to organize a Referendum in the Biafran territory for the Biafran people to determine their destiny. To this effect, IPOB is neither contemplating nor will it encourage or sponsor anyone or group to disrupt Nigeria’ s shambolic selection process called an election.
