BY BODE GBADEBO, Abuja –
In an incredible twist of events, the founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has accused the Federal Government of using the leader of the rival Indigenous People of biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, to destroy the struggle to achieve Biafra.
In an interview published in the current edition of The Interview magazine, Uwazuruike accused Kanu of working hand-in-glove with the security services to destabilise the struggle for biafra, starting with the forthcoming November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.
“Nnamdi (Kanu) is fighting against biafra…the security agencies have seen Nnamdi as somebody with a high value that they can use. They heard him shouting on radio and they approached him and he accepted to work with them,” Uwazuruike said.
He continued, “No-Election (threat) in Anambra State is aimed at favouring the All Progressives Congress (APC) to edge out Governor Obiano through destabilisation; that’s the only thing and it’s being arranged by the security agencies, using Kanu.”
According to a press statement issued by the MD/Editor-In-Chief of The Interview, Mr Azu Ishiekwene, a copy of which was made available to LEADERSHIP, yesterday, he described the current edition as “a rare insight into the complex and troubling identity politics confronting the country.”
The MASSOB founder said it was regrettable that his efforts to achieve Biafra by peaceful means were being sabotaged by Kanu who has been hijacked by security agencies and some pay masters, who he refused to name.
In the interview, Uwazuruike said, “I know the mansions that Nnamdi Kanu and people like him have abroad…let Kanu keep disgracing himself like he’s doing now, because I know he’s being funded and I know those funding him.”
He described Kanu’s arrest and subsequent bail conditions as a set up, wondering why a man who was released on health grounds has not visited any hospital since his release from detention.
He criticised the President Muhammadu Buhari administration for lacking the capacity to govern, saying, “APC won an election but didn’t have a plan to govern.”
Uwazuruike also accused the immediate past chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega, of rigging President Goodluck Jonathan out of office, adding that, “If Jonathan had remained the president of Nigeria till today, the US dollar would not have exchanged for more than N50. Nigeria will still beg Jonathan to come back.”
