Anambra2021: Scores Of INEC Adhoc Staff Resign Over IPOB Threat

LAGOS OCTOBER 25TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The November 6, 2021 Anambra state Governorship election may have run into serious hitch, as a huge number of adhoc Staff recruited for the exercise have resigned due to fear of attacks by members of the proscribed  Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The Pro Biafran group, had last weekend, issued a statement through its Spokesman, Emma Powerful, announcing  one week  sit- at home in South – East region beginning from 5th of November, should the federal government fail to set its leader, Nnamdi Kanu free unconditionally by 4th of November.

Our Correspondent learnt that the pronouncement put fear in the Anambra election adhoc Staff, who said they don’t want to risk their lives, going by IPOB’s dreaded antecedents.

It would be recalled that the   Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had in May increased the polling units in Anambra State from 4,608 to 5,720 with about 10,000 ad hoc workers required for the governorship poll exercise.
