“INEC is now short of thousands of ad-hoc staff members due to IPOB instructions,” according to a reliable source. Those who signed up in the first place have now all resigned.”


The group had given the Nigerian government a 12-day deadline to release their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, “unconditionally,” failing which the governorship election in Anambra State on November 6 could be cancelled.


IPOB gave the Nigerian government until November 4 to release Kanu unconditionally, or it would impose a one-week lockdown in the region, according to a statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, on Sunday.


The group explained that the one-week sit-in order, which began on November 10 and would end on November 10, was to demand the release of their leader, whom the Nigerian government was willing to keep imprisoned indefinitely for no reason.


  1. The unlawful detention of nnamdi kanu has become a thorn in the flesh to the government of buhari to say the fact. The ibos fears ipob more than the Nigerian army. Therefore the seat at home order is likely to be effective come November 5th. I will advise the government release him if they really want a peaceful and free election in Anambra state.
