You’ve Lost Relevance, MASSOB Tells Uwazuruike

Published

on

Factional leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Comrade Uchenna Madu, has denied ever begging Chief Ralph Uwazuruike for forgiveness, describing his allegations as an attempt to seek relevance.

Uwazuruike had on Sunday said that a new Biafra would have been actualized if the project had not been derailed by Madu and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafra groups.

Uwazuruike also said that Madu and the IPOB leader have been sending emissaries to beg him for forgiveness over their role in derailing the Biafran project.

But, reacting to the comments by Uwazuruike, Madu denied ever calling or having any indirect or physical meeting with Uwazuruike, saying that the BIM-MASSOB founder was only using the report to seek for relevance having squandered the goodwill of the people through falsehood, cunning and deceit.

Madu, whose statement was issued by the MASSOB national director of information, Comrade Edeson Samuel, described Uwazuruike as a chieftain of cunning and deceit, whose falsehood and deceit could no longer sustain the Biafra struggle.

He explained that though, a pro-Biafra activist, Colman Emejuru had initiated a peace move to unite all the pro-Biafra groups, including Nnamdi Kanu, Uwazuruike and himself in Enugu penultimate week for the sole purpose of marching forces together in order to enable a quicker restoration of Biafra.

Madu said however, that the meeting could not hold because of Uwazuruike’s celebration of Ojukwu’s memorial service in Owerri.

He said he was surprised to read Uwazuruike claiming that he and the others were begging him for forgiveness.

The release reads in part, “Our leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu has never called, texted nor chatted with Ralph Uwazuruike directly or indirectly since 2014, MASSOB separated from him.

“MASSOB received the headline news of The Nation newspaper that our leader is begging or appealing for forgiveness from Ralph Uwazuruike with shock.

“The executive officials of MASSOB under the leadership of Comrade Uchenna Madu are aware that Colman Emejuru (Ikemba Ndigbo), as a selfless pro-Biafra activist, called our leader for a solidarity meeting which was scheduled in Enugu last two weeks ago. His primary message to our leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu and his executive officials is that he personally initiated a peace and harmonisation move to unite Ralph Uwazuruike, Nnamdi Kanu and Uchenna Madu for the sole purpose of marching forces together in order to enable a quicker restoration of Biafra.

“He as well told us that Ralph Uwazuruike is aware of his meeting with us and that he, Uwazuruike is equally happy for the peace and harmonisation meeting. The peace and harmonisation meeting was paused after Ralph Uwazuruike’s Ojukwu memorial lecture. The meeting has not reopened yet.

“Uwazuruike, as everyone knows, is a chieftain of cunning and deceit. How can we go back and start begging to stay in Okwe working with Ralph Uwazuruike after MASSOB chased him out of his father’s compound? For four years, Uwazuruike was in exile, he could not return to Okwe, his home village even during the burial of his step father.

“MASSOB under the leadership of Comrade Uchenna Madu left Okwe on our personal decision after we publicly forgave Ralph Uwazuruike and handed his committed atrocities to ancestors of Igbo land”.

Madu challenged Uwazuruike to provide evidences of any conversation between them if he he knew he was not lying, saying, “MASSOB still have the electronic evidences of all our interactions with Coleman Emejuru”

Nnamdi Kanu

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has reacted to the decision of the court of the Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS) which ruled that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu failed to prove his allegations against the Nigerian government.

Kanu had filed a suit before the court on March 3, 2016 alleging torture, assault, inhuman treatment, and the violation of his property rights by the Federal Government.

The IPOB leader in the suit no ECW/CCJ/APP/06/16 filed before the court by his counsel, Mr. Ifeanyi Ejiofor, also claimed that his rights to life, personal integrity, privacy, fair trial, freedom of movement, freedom of expression, freedom of association, and right to self-determination among others were violated following his arrest and detention by agents of the defendant State.

The Community Court in its judgement held that the arrest and detention of the IPOB’s leader, Kanu, was lawful.

The three-member panel of the court also dismissed Kanu’s request for monetary compensation to the tune of $800.

IPOB To Army: Leave Us Alone, We Have More Important Things To Do

Published

IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has denied claim that it doctored and circulated recent video where member of the Boko Haram killed several Nigerian soldiers.

Recall that the Nigerian Army had accused the pro-Biafra group of being behind the trending video that purported that Boko Haram terrorists captured and killed several troops of Operation Lafiya Dole in the North East.

IPOB said it was a shame for the Army to involve the group in their futile attempt impotence and failed effort to fight Boko Haram.

Reacting to the allegation, IPOB’s media and publicity secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful berated the Army, saying they belittled themselves by involving IPOB in issue of doctoring a video.

Powerful said that IPOB have more important things to do than engaging in doctoring a video where soldiers were killed.

“This recent statement from the thoroughly disgraceful, undignified institution called Nigerian military accusing IPOB of being behind the recent trending video where Boko Haram members torturing and humiliating Nigerian army personnel is laughable.

“This unguarded, shameful and thoroughly unsubstantiated accusation is very typical of an army that specializes in attacking civilian populations in the south but cringe at the sight of a well armed opposition in the north.

“It is quite pathetic how the Nigeria army would belittle themselves so shamelessly in the eyes of the world by involving IPOB in their futile attempt to deflect attention from their impotence and failed effort to fight a terrorism menace they themselves created in Nigeria. The Nigerian Army must understand that Biafra is not Nigeria.

“IPOB have more important things to do than engaging in doctoring a video that is so clear for all to see. Maybe Nigerian the Army think the world is as undiscerning as their typical Nigerian. Rather than coming out in public to make a complete fool of themselves; Buratai and his Nigerian Army should invite forensic experts to corroborate their claim if they are confident they are speaking the truth.

“The video of Boko Haram torturing and humiliating the cowardly Nigerian Army that specialize in committing crimes against unarmed populations in Biafra is real and verifiable. IPOB has nothing to do with the trending video and cannot involve itself with this brotherly spat between Boko Haram and Nigeria Army because they have the same Fulanisation agenda for Nigeria.

“Nigeria Army and Boko Haram are both terrorist organisations pursuing the same goal with the only difference being that Nigerian army specialise exclusively, in attacking civilians in the east.

“This shameful statement from Nigeria Army proves that the Nigeria Army and her sisters security outfits in Nigeria have lost control of their phony war against Boko Haram and as usual are looking to blame IPOB for their pitiful plight.

“Northern elders (allegedly) formed and sponsored Boko Haram to perfect their plans to islamize and Fulanize Nigeria and to make Jonathan’s government ungovernable which they succeeded in doing. We must not forget that Major-General Muhammadu Buhari was named the chief negotiator by Boko Haram for the failed talks in Saudi Arabia in 2014.

“Nigeria soldiers should leave IPOB alone and focus on fighting the monster they created.

“We pity Nigeria Army and gullible Nigerians who cannot see the inevitable violent collapse of Nigeria. What is happening today in Nigeria is the worst form of organized state sponsored hypocrisy.

Recruiting Boko Haram members and other terror groups into the Nigerian Army, Police, DSS and other security formations in Nigeria is a recipe for disaster which IPOB is rightly sensitizing the world about.

“Nigeria is imploding gradually and no amount of lies against IPOB will avert the impending doom of the failed British contraption”, Powerful said.
