When two Elephants fight, it’s the grass that suffers. This seems to be the case with two pro-biafran groups IPOB and MASSOB, whose leaders Nnamdi Kanu and Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, are at loggerheads.
Nnamdi Kanu who heads IPOB (Indigenous Peoples of Biafra), has vowed to expose individuals whom he said are traitors working against the actualization of Biafra.
Kanu has previously accused the leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force, Mujahid Asari Dokubo, of being an agent of the ‘Fulani Caliphate’, but pretending to be pro-biafran.
The IPOB leader has now turned his ire on his fellow Biafran, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, who he accused of receiving oil block from the Federal Government to drop agitations for Biafra.
MASSOB through it’s National Director of Information, Sunday Okereafor, has recently warned Kanu against attacking Uwazuruike, and demanded that Kanu stops playing chicken and instead, returns back to the country to fight for what he believes in.
Okereafor said, “MASSOB says on Biafra, we stand. Nnamdi Kanu can’t say that he is fighting for Biafra and he is staying in America, London, Canada, Australia. Every day, he is flying; he should come back home and pay the price.”
Meanwhile, in response to allegation of receiving oil blocks, Uwazuruike said the allegation was baseless and malicious.
He said rather than accusing him falsely, Kanu should he grateful to him for getting Biafra into the membership of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) in the Hague.
In a statement on Thursday by Uwazuruike’s Personal Assistant on Media Matters, Elder Chris Mocha, the MASSOB leader dismissed the allegation as outright falsehood.
He accused Kanu of only targeting to bring him to disrepute before the international community.
“Instead of him (Nnamdi Kanu ) to remain ever greatful to Uwazuruike’s group that worked under the scorching sun and rain to ensure the facilitation of the admission of BIafra into UNPO membership, he busied himself blackmailing his master.
“Nnamdi Kanu and his gullible IPOB members have not been comfortable with the recent admission of Biafra as the 46th Member- Nations of the Unrepresented Nations & Peoples Organization (UNPO), which was secured through Uwazuruike -led BIM-MASSOB,” the statement reads.
