Ohanaeze youths said that IPOB’s fixture of their own referendum for the same day as Nigeria election date was more or less asking for confrontation with the security agencies which could result to slaughter of innocent Igbo youths once again. The youths also pleaded with IPOB that boycotting the election would be counter-productive pursuant to Igbo cause of re-asserting itself in the Nigeria state, while it also reminded IPOB that the Igbo was yet to recover from the 2006 census boycott which the Movement for Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB executed.
