The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra has accused members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) of masterminding the alleged attack on its workers at the ongoing registration and revalidation exercise.

Anambra APC chairman, Chief Basil Ejidike, made the claim at the party’s third stakeholders’ meeting attended by all the governorship aspirants, President Muhammadu Buhari’s aides, Ben Akabueze, Maxwell Okoye and minister of labour and employment, Senator Chris Ngige.

Ejidike said the reported incident of attack by suspected IPOB members took place at Ihiala where the materials meant for the registration and revalidation exercise were carted away. He said the party had already instructed the local government area supervisors to furnish it with the full details of the attack for proper action to the taken

Ejidike said: “There was a reported incident of attack on our workers by suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB who carted away materials meant for the registration exercise in Isseke (Ihiala). We have already requested the local government Area Supervisors to furnish us with details,” he said.

However, he declared that the party needed more materials for the exercise, as the ones sent could not cover the 4,907 polling units in the state. He said additional 299 registers were required since the exercise was polling unit-based

He said the shortfall had already been communicated to the registration committee and former Senate President, Chief Ken Nnamani.

Ejidike alleged the major reason for such attack was because APC had become the beautiful bride in Anambra state with members from major political parties registering and identifying with it.
