The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has warned INEC staff members against rigging Saturday's governorship poll in Imo State.
Emma Powerful, an IPOB spokesperson, warned that any INEC personnel discovered cheating the governorship election in Imo State will be "hot."
Powerful cautioned that any INEC ad hoc staff member, NYSC member, or Polling Officer who tries to rig the election would do so at his own expense.
According to a statement issued by Powerful, the warning was sent to deter any attempt to undermine the will of the people of Imo State on Saturday.
According to Powerful: “We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the prophet and great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU wish to reiterate once again that any INEC ad-hoc staff that uses his or her desk to subvert the will of the people of Imo State in the name of working for APC and Hope Uzodinma will receive it hot even after the elections on the 11th November 2023. If you know you can not resist bribes and intimidation from Hope Uzodinma and APC, it is better to back off to avoid had I known.
“Any INEC Adhoc staff, SPO, PO and NYSC member who will be used by APC agents to falsify results or try to transmit fake results from the polling units will be doing so at his or her own risk. The same goes to the political thugs working for and as agents for Hope Uzodinma to rig this election, should be ready for what will befall them even after the election.
“IPOB reiterates our stand towards this election because nobody wants to witness the atrocities that have happened in Imo State in the last four years to continue. Imo State people’s will, must not be subverted this time and those who have been contracted to subvert the will of the people must be ready to face the consequences.
