Senate Minority Leader, Eyinnaya Abaribe, has said the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, never gave the order for election not to hold in Anam¬bra State.

Abaribe said fifth columnists are behind the no election order and not Kanu or IPOB.

According to Daily Post, Abaribe spoke during a town hall meeting with the leadership and students of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (NAU), Awka.

He noted that Kanu’s lawyers confirmed that the order did not come from the IPOB leader.

“Who gave the order that there will be no election? IPOB has never said that there will be no election in Anambra. It is the handwork of 5th columnists,” Abaribe said.

There has been tension over the planned conduct of the November 6th governorship election in Anambra State.

Rumours making the rounds have it that IPOB declared that the forthcoming election won’t hold.

However, IPOB has denied giving such an order, stressing that it has nothing to do with Nigeria’s electoral system.

Meanwhile, the separatist group had ordered a sit-at-home in Anambra State, starting from November 5th.

The order is aimed at prevailing on the Federal Government to release Kanu.
