The founder and factional leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has alleged that the All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government is funding the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu to sabotage the struggle for Biafra.
Uwazuruike claimed that his efforts to achieve Biafra, “through peaceful means” were being ruined by Kanu who has been “sabotaged by security services to destabilise the struggle for Biafra.”
He alleged that the IPOB leader intends to ruin the Biafra agitation, starting with the November 18 governorship election in Anambra state which, he, Kanu, asked Igbos to boycott.
Reacting to the arrest and bail granted the IPOB leader as “a set up,” Uwazuruike wondered why Kanu who was granted bailed on health grounds “has not visited any hospital since his release from detention.”
His further statements read thus, “Nnamdi is fighting against Biafra. The security agencies have seen Nnamdi 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.
“No election in Anambra State is aimed at favouring the All Progressives Congress (APC) to edge out Governor Obiano through destabilisation; that’s the only thing and it’s 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 like he’s doing now, because I know he’s being funded and I know those funding him.”
However, one may wonder how contradictory Uwazuruike appeared in his claim. There’s a clear indication that the APC led government is totally against the agitators and can never stand by them in secret.
