The founder of Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has called Nnamdi Kanu, the group leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a coward.
The war between these two Biafra agitation groups becomes messier as they reply and blast each other.
Recently, Kanu accused Uwazuruike of presenting Biafra issue to the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) in the Netherlands, claimed that the move was ridiculous as many Igbo groups have taken Biafra to the United Nations.
The accusation led the national director of information of MASSOB, Sunny Okoroafor, to mock Kanu as he’s not qualified to talk against Uwazuruike’s movement over Biafra issue.
The anger became stronger as he wrote to Kanu that he has no guts to interfere into Biafra matters where Uwazuruike speaks.
“Where was Nnamdi Kanu when Chief Ralph Uwazuruike started the struggle for Biafra? One thing is clear; Uwazuruike was the first man in this new struggle to hoist the Biafra flag in the international arena.
“MASSOB founded by Uwazuruike to which Nnamdi Kanu was a member set out stages for the struggle and that is what the MASSOB founder is following religiously.” Continuing, Uwazurike said, “If the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu talks about the struggle for Biafra, he should first of all come back home and not to stay outside to make noise.
“He should not be afraid of imprisonment, after all, Nelson Mandela was in prison in South Africa for 27 years, he did not run away or abandoned his people. Nnamdi Kanu should come down-home and fight for the freedom of his people”, Okoroafor said.
Okoroafor further boiled out, “We are not corrupt in MASSOB and therefore will not be accused of giving bribe to anybody or group so that Biafra could be a member of UNPO. If Kanu thinks we should be at loggerheads with our neighbours because we are fighting for Biafra, he should be joking.
“MASSOB has come a long way with the Biafra struggle and we will not allow anybody to distract us”, he submitted.
