Leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Ralph Uwazuruike, has denied receiving any oil block from the Federal Government to drop agitations for Biafra.
He made this known in a statement issued on Thursday by his Media Adie, Elder Chris Mocha, while reacting to an allegation made by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
Uwazurike described the allegation as baseless and malicious. He said Kanu should be grateful to him for getting Biafra into the membership of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) in The Hague.
He wondered where the IPOB leader got the information after the leader of Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Asari Dokubo, already confirmed the South East does not benefit from the about 77 oil wells and blocks in the country.
On the allegation of abandoning the agitation for Biafra, Uwazuruike described Kanu as “a drowning man in the struggle for Biafra which he knew nothing about except globe-trotting and causing panic and confusion”.
He accused Kanu of only targeting to bring him to disrepute before the international community.
“Instead of him (Nnamdi Kanu ) to remain ever grateful to Uwazuruike’s group that worked under the scorching sun and rain to ensure the facilitation of the admission of Biafra into UNPO membership, he busied himself blackmailing his master.
“Nnamdi Kanu and his gullible IPOB members have not been comfortable with the recent admission of Biafra as the 46th Member- Nations of the Unrepresented Nations & Peoples Organization (UNPO), which was secured through Uwazuruike -led BIM-MASSOB,” the statement reads.
The statement expressed happiness that notwithstanding the allegation, pro-Biafran members were still solidly behind Uwazuruike’s indefatigable commitment for the achievement of the self- determination for Biafra through the nonviolent process.
