The war of words between the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and the founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra MASSOB, Ralph Uwazuruike, has taken a new dimension with the latter alleging that the former was given a house abroad by the Federal government when he started his struggle for Biafra in the UK some years ago.
In an interview with The Interview magazine, Uwazurike, accused Kanu of been compromised in his struggle for Biafra as he was employed by the President Buhari-led government to destroy the struggle for Biafra.
“Apparently they saw Nnamdi Kanu as someone of high value for use. They heard him shouting on radio and approached him and he accepted. Naturally, only a strong, principled man can say no because they will give you irresistible offers. I know the mansions Nnamdi Kanu and people like him have abroad, given to them by the same government, the same security agencies. Don’t worry, the truth will emerge soon.”
The MASSOB leader further alleged that Kanu’s call for the boycott of the November 18th Anambra state governorship election, is a ploy to enable APC to take over power in Anambra state.
“The boycott of the Anambra State governorship election in November is a ploy to ensure that the All Progressives Congress takes over in the state. All things playing out today, including the so-called ‘no election’ in Anambra State is nothing but a smokescreen. The ‘no election’ is aimed at favouring the APC to edge out Governor (Willie) Obiano; that’s the only thing.” he said
Speaking further, he said “Let him tell you his own agenda. What does he know about Biafra? Somebody who doesn’t know the difference between an election and a referendum; that there is no difference between election and referendum. He says ‘give me Biafra or give me a date for referendum.’ So, what is the difference between the two? All the materials you use in a referendum are the same you use in an election. The only difference is that in an election, you may have many political parties while in a referendum, you vote yes or no.”
