The group ordered the people of Anambra to observe the sit at home protest on the day of the forth coming gubernatorial election in the state.
In a statement on the group's Radio Biafra Facebook page, IPOB said it ordered the sit at home to safe guard lives of the people because governor Willie Obiano has colluded with the military to slaughter the people of the state.
The statement read: "18th of November 2017 is sit at Home in the whole of Anambra state. Please stay indoors on that day to avoid anything happening to you. We are aware that Willie Obiano has colluded with Nigeria military to slaughter our people on 18th of November 2017, to avoid causalities we advise you to stay at home. Your life matters, #Boycott the election."
