Uche Mefor, the estranged deputy leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has declared that the Anambra state election in November “must hold”.

Mefor took to his known Facebook page on Saturday to share his view, amid rumours cooked up by die-hard IPOB proponents that he is dead.

Politics Nigeria discovered that rumours of Mefor’s death is being broadcast aggressively on Facebook by one George Onyeibe.

Onyeibe who seem to be based in the United Kingdom (UK), claimed Mefor is dead, and ‘burial will be fixed soon’.

In one post, he wrote: “I blamed myself for following late uche mefor, i know that i cause alot to biafrans but i want all the biafrans to forgive me for all the pains done by me onyibe..
