Mr. Godwin Ezeemo, a Progressive People Alliance (PPA) candidate running for Governor in Anambra state was reportedly attacked by suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) during a church function on Friday
According to reports, the attack took place at Odoekpe in Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State.
In a recent statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB had declared that the Anambra Gubernatorial elections slated for November 18, would not take place.
The statement pointed out that “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is very strategic and methodical in his approach to restore Biafra; therefore every step IPOB takes, regardless of its impact, is designed to bring Biafra closer.
“Anambra election boycott will benefit not just Biafrans but other component ethnic nationalities in Nigeria as well,”
Amid the disruption caused by the group of youths, Mr Ezeemo, however, still continued addressing members of the congregation , saying; “I’m a Biafran in practice given that I brought down all my investments to my homeland.
“I can understand the agitation of these youths. We have been lied to for so long by these politicians but I left Britain to come back home so that I can make things right. Just give me a chance, I will not let you down.”
