Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra has reportedly met with governors and representatives from Enugu, Ebonyi, and Anambra states over IPOB’s call for a boycott of the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State on November 18, and the group’s recent establishment of a ‘Biafra Secret Service’. Imo and Abia’s state governors were unavoidably absent and sent no representatives.

The meeting had Enugu State governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, and Ebonyi State governor, Dave Umahi, in attendance with Nkem Okeke, deputy governor of Anambra State, representing Governor Willie Obiano.
Nnamdi Kanu was accompanied to the meeting by elder statesman, Professor Ben Nwabueze, and founder of the Igbo Youth Movement, Evangelist Elliot Uko.
It is reported that the governors sought for a solution to the demands of the pro-Biafra instigators.
Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is a political self-determination organisation led by Nnamdi Kanu, a United Kingdom-based activist.
The group have maintained that it has right to Self-determination according to UN charter and African Union charter on human and people’s right which clearly states that “Indigenous People have the right to Self-determination.
Therefore by virtue of that right, they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development” which Nigeria state signed and domesticated into local laws.
