Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has called off boycott of the 2019 general elections.

Kanu had asked the Igbo to stay off the elections until certain conditions regarding the actualisation of the group’s objectives were met.

However, in a tweet on Thursday night, the Biafran leader called off the boycott saying that terms and preconditions had been met.

“Having confirmed this evening that all our preconditions and terms have been met, signed, sealed and delivered; I hereby call-off the election boycott across Biafraland on Feb. 16, 2019. I dedicate this historic victory to the formidable #IPOB family worldwide,” Kanu wrote.

The group had earlier announced that it would hold a referendum on the same day as the presidential and National Assembly elections.
