Ralph Uwazuruike, leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has dismissed a claim by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People, IPOB, that he collected oil blocks from the Nigerian government.
Uwazuruike, who is also leader of the Biafra Independent Movement, BIM, said the allegation by Kanu was baseless and malicious which should be dismissed by the general public.
He described Kanu as a drowning man who knew nothing about the struggle for Biafra.
He lamented that the IPOB leader prefers traveling around the world, creating confusion and panic.
He stated that the IPOB leader should be grateful that he got Biafra into the membership of the unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization, UNPO, in the Hague, rather than making false claims.
A statement signed by Uwazuruike’s Personal Assistant on Media Matters, Elder Chris Mocha said: “Kanu is a drowning man in the struggle for Biafra which he knew nothing about except globe-trotting and causing panic and confusion”.
“Instead of Nnamdi Kanu to remain ever grateful 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 and Peoples Organization (UNPO), which was secured through Uwazuruike-led BIM-MASSOB,” the statement reads.
