The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) said yesterday in Awka that it has decided to reveal Ralph Uwazuruike’s anxious role in the ongoing court case against Nnamdi Kanu of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
MASSOB alleged that the major reason the Federal Government planned to mask its paid witnesses to cover their identities is because the leading witness is a former popular Igboman who has thrown caution to the wind for the sake of money, wealth and mundane things.
The statement signed by Comrade Uchenna Madu as the leader of MASSOB, states that it would surprise Ndigbo and Biafrans in general that the leading witness of the DSS against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is Ralph Uwazurike (former MASSOB leader).
“We have all the evidences to prove our points on Uwazurike’s romance with the oppressors of Ndigbo.
“Uwazurike is jittery and not comfortable with the emergence of Nnamdi Kanu as the leading figure and hero of genuine Biafra struggle. He will sponsor, support, participate and execute any evil plan or move that will tarnish, blackmail, jail or even kill Mazi Nnamdi Kanu just for people to see him as over-all Biafra leader which Biafrans are now fully aware that he is fake.
“Initially, the DSS has no witness or evidence against Nnamdi Kanu until Uwazurike who worked for President Goodluck Jonathan’s continuation of Nigerian domination of Biafra made himself a willing tool of destabilization to the Buhari administration against Nnamdi Kanu. Through Uwazurike, the Federal Government has contracted Mr Benjamin Onuegbu (Uwazurike’s BIM Coordinator, Lagos State), Mr Solomon Chukwu (Uwazurike’s BIM administrator, Port Harcourt) whom Uwazurike also instigate to claim factional MASSOB leader and Sunny Okoroafor (Uwazurike’s BIM Information officer, Aba).
“It will be recalled that the DSS told the court that their witnesses are residents of Lagos, Port Harcourt, Owerri, etc. The refusal of the court to grant the DSS’ request of masking the face of their witnesses against Nnamdi Kanu is a major setback as they have no real and genuine witnesses.
“For fear of arrest and evil activities he committed against Ndigbo in the name of Biafra activism, Uwazurike desperately wants to impress President Buhari and work for him to cover his numerous criminal acts against Ndigbo.
“As a former National Director of Information under Uwazurike’s MASSOB and a very close national officer of MASSOB who spent two years in detention with Uwazurike in DSS headquarters, Abuja, Suleja and Keffi prisons before his release and numerous other things that hold us together, I know Uwazurike more than Sunny Okoroafor who was my commissioner of information, Aba region.
I challenge Uwazurike for an open debate on all of our activities involving Biafra and Igbo course anywhere in Igbo land’’, the statement concluded.
Efforts to get the reaction of Uwazuruike was not successful as at press time.
