Founder of Biafra Independence Movement and Movement for the
Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra ( BIM-MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, Sunday accused Fidelis Nwakor-led World Igbo Congress Europe, of contributing money to Nnamdi Kanu to create panic and fear thereby sending false security alarm in a bid to destabilize Igbo nation.
Uwazuruike who made the accusation as a special guest during the just concluded Zoom conference of World Igbo Congress Europe (W.I.C.E)
which Security issue of NdIgbo topped the agenda, however, berated the leaders of the Apex socio- cultural organization, lamenting that “since the formation of MASSOB 21 years ago the Congress had never
contributed one naira to Uwazuruike-led MASSOB but they have been contributing funds to Nnamdi Kanu-led IPOB”.
In a statement signed by his Media Assistant and Biafra Director for
Information, Elder Chris Mocha, which was made available to newsmen in Onitsha, Uwazuruike added that, “IPOB members had in the past reported to have attacked persons over a little disagreement”.
Buttressing his claim he recalled that, “the highest political office hollder and well respected person in Igbo land, a one time serving Deputy Senate president, Chief Ike Ekweremadu was physically
assaulted, manhandled and stripped during the Iwaji festival in Germany by the members of Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB).”
“Our Igbo elders have been insulted, Igbo culture has been bastardized on social media platforms. Is this how you people behave,” Uwazuruike querried.
“And just few weeks ago, I played host to the former leader of Niger
Delta people’s Volunteer force (NDPVF) and now Biafra National Council (BNC), Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo and we discussed on actualization of Niger Delta Republic”
He urged World Igbo Congress Europe) to always speak against evil and condemn partiality.
Uwazuruike listed some of the steps he had taken to unite Ndigbo recalling how the President of Arewa youth consultative forum (AYCF), Yerima Shettima issued a 90 day quit notice to Ndigbo to leave the North, stating that he risked his life and went to Arewa house in Kaduna state and the order was reversed.
He said, ‘I have paid my dues for NdIgbo having spent my youthful and entire life working for Ndigbo”.
“I went to India at the age of 17 to understudy the Mahatma Ghandhi’s principle of non violence. I have gone to prisons several times for the sake of Biafra and didn’t run away from Igboland”, he hinted.
