Founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Ralph Uwazuruike, has alleged that heads of security agencies are using leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu to destroy the struggle for Biafra.
Uwazuruike and Kanu are both Biafra proponents, but have been on war paths for sometime now.
About three months ago, Uwazuruike said he was disappointed that Radio Biafra, which he “handed over to Kanu was being used for purposes it was not created for.
The MASSOB founder, who spoke in the current edition of The Interview, further accused Kanu of waging war against the struggle for Biafra and regretted that his efforts to achieve a sovereign state of Biafra “through peaceful means,” were being ruined by Kanu.
Uwazuruike specifically accused Kanu of being used by “security services to destabilise the struggle for Biafra.”
The MASSOB leader further alleged that Kanu intended to ruin Biafra agitation, a plot he said will begin with the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State which the Kanu-led IPOB has advised its members to boycott.
“No election in Anambra state is aimed at favouring the All Progressives Congress (APC), to edge out Governor Willy Obiano, through destabilisation.
“That is the only thing and it is being arranged by the security agencies, using Kanu.
“I know the mansions that Nnamdi Kanu and people like him have abroad. Let Kanu keep disgracing himself as he’s doing now because I know he’s being funded and I know those funding him.
“Nnamdi is fighting against Biafra. The security agencies have seen him as somebody with a high value that they can use.
“They heard him shouting on radio and they approached him and he accepted to work with them,” Uwazuruike claimed.
He described Kanu’s arrest and bail conditions as “a set-up,” and wondered why Kanu, who was granted bail on health grounds “has not visited any hospital since his release from detention.”
The MASSOB leader also took a swipe at the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, which he said lacked “the capacity to govern.”
He said the APC won the 2015 presidential election, “but didn’t plan” for governance. Uwazuruike added that Nigeria would have been better if former President Goodluck Jonathan had won the 2015 election, for a second term in office.
“If Jonathan had remained the president of Nigeria till today, the US dollar would not have exchanged for more than N50. Nigeria will still beg Jonathan to come back.”
