Leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Ralph Uwazurike, has alleged that leader of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) is a paid agent of destabilization which is why he and his group have been carrying out activities that negate the rule of engagement of the Biafra struggle.
Uwazurike, who spoke today, Thursday, in Owerri, capital of Imo state, said that the activities of the IPOB leader could only lead to an unplanned war which is against the Biafra struggle.
According to him, the interest of the Biafra movement is to secure the interest, lives and property of Igbo people and not to start another war, adding that Kanu’s major interest is to destroy the agenda of MASSOB.
The MASSOB leader said that the hallmark of any freedom fighter is to submit to being arrested, saying: “a real freedom fighter submits to arrest but Kanu has told his members to burn down the country if he is re-arrested, a true indication that he was paid to destabilize MASSOB.”
Uwazurike said that Federal Government had only succeeded in popularizing Kanu by not ignoring him and his antics, saying that if the government had ignored him, the situation would not have escalated.
The MASSOB leader who called on all Igbo leaders to condemn the activities of IPOB as it had no agenda, said that IPOB has no agenda.
“Nnamdi Kanu has no agenda and he is only thriving on the relevance given to him by the government. I recruited him and I know his capacities and he is not a leader.
“I have 25 steps towards actualising Biafra and Kanu does not have even one agenda,” he said.
Uwazurike condemned attacks on northerners over the ongoing military operations code- named, Operation Python Dance 2, in the South-East.
According to him, any attack on northerner could be counter-productive as many Igbos are resident in the north. [myad]
