Accused as plots to testify against Kanu, MASSOB leader Uwazuruike brands IPOB as fraudsters

Founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has branded Nnamdi Kanu and his Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) members as fraudsters who are out to deceive gullible people.

Uwazuruike stated this in response to the allegation made against him by IPOB Director of Media, Emma Powerful.

Powerful had in a statement he recently released in Owerri accused MASSOB and Biafra Independent Movement (BIM) leaders, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike and Mr. Chijioke Mbaneri respectively, among others of plotting with the Department of State Security (DSS) to hide under a screen to testify against Kanu and three other IPOB leaders in the treason charges levelled against them by the Federal Government.

In his reaction, Uwazuruike described the allegation as foolish, adding that Kanu and his IPOB members are mere fraudsters who are busy deceiving innocent people.

The rift between Uwazuruike and Radio Biafra director, Kanu, has existed even before the birth of IPOB.

Uwazuruike had through his Assistant Director of information, Mr. Sunday Okereafor said upon Kanu’s arrest in October 2015 by the DSS, that he was a rebel who had long been expelled by MASSOB, for inciting violence among members.

He further stated that Kanu broke the group’s nonviolence approach and was summarily dismissed.

    Kanu is a mischievous person. Even he has lost the support of his people, so nothing will stop him from being killed or imprisoned for life.

    • yanju omotodun

      Kanu went to far. You don’t threaten to break out of a country, you only negotiate peacefully to secede , although there are times when war has to come to fore but at least he ought to have get the full support of all igbo leaders first.
      If ojukwu was alive, he would have advised him better.

      When you are pronounced dead, then may be kanu can think of dying.
      We the igbos are fully in support of kanu ‘s movement. We are ready to leave here

  • seyi jelili

    Kanu ‘s offence is called treasonable felony which is worthy of death and nothing more than that. So federal government should forget his trial and eliminate him. I watched his video on YouTube where he explained details of how to wage war against the country and all his boasting of the igbos have scientists who can build bombs and missiles over night.

      I’m sure the case is taking this long because of the strong forces behing Kanu. If not, a treason case won’t take this long

  • Margret Dickson

    How long is it going to take the court to decide Kanu’s case? This man ought to be dead by now. His living is a threat to Nigeria, he is more dangerous than the boko haram and he’s desperate to cause more havoc.

      How many people has Kanu killed? Unlike the fulani people of buhari who have killed so many people in Southern Kaduna or his extended Boko Haram family who have destroyed more than what we can imagine.

    This cannot help us win the fight. STop the in-house debate. It’s unnecessary.
