The leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, and Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike has advised Biafrans to treat the reappearance of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB with caution.
Uwazuike speaking at a press conference in Owerri on Monday urged Ndigbos to see Kanu’s appearance and broadcast in Israel as “a non-issue because it was carefully prearranged by the Department of State Security, DSS.”
Uwazuruike describing Kanu as a ‘fake freedom fighter’ said he was aware that the DSS conscripted Kanu to degrade MASSOB and its struggle.
The MASSOB leader said: “Not many of his ardent followers truly know that Kanu is not sincerely working for the Independence of Biafra. His coming to Nigeria, his arrest, detention, trial, release on bail and his alleged disappearance and resurfacing, were all prearranged by the DSS.
“If Mazi Kanu was sincere, he should have disclosed how he was spirited away from his Afara Ukwu country home, when the soldiers struck. How did he disappear from his country home? How did he survive the onslaught, even when he claimed that about 28 people were killed during the military operation in his home? How did he leave Nigeria and what document did he use to traverse all the nations before arriving Israel? We couldn’t have forgotten so soon that the DSS seized all his travel documents.”
He urged Ndigbos to disregard Kanu, adding that, “a freedom fighter donates his life for the struggle he believes in.
“This is not the case with Nnamdi Kanu. Running away from the struggle means that he is a fake freedom fighter. This young man does not consult anybody and he has no adviser. Kanu erroneously believe that President Buhari can wake up any day and call for a referendum that is not even captured in the Constitution”, Uwazuruike said.
“When Kanu was declared missing, I knew that it was a ruse when Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State said that Kanu would resurface before the end of the year, he spoke from the point of knowledge and not speculation”.
Directing his mind to some of the directives issued by Kanu in his broadcast, Uwazuruike passionately appealed to Ndigbo to “completely disregard them.”
“Nnamdi Kanu is calling for effective boycott of elections, referendum and sit at home, which MASSOB/BIM abandoned long ago, because of its adverse effects on Ndigbo. These issues are not practicable and the young man does not and cannot have effective control over them.
“Even if the people obey the order, the Nigerian Constitution empowers President Buhari to appoint anybody to run the affairs of any state, where elections were not held.”
