Editor’s note: Ralph Uwazuruike who is the leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of a Sovereign State Of Biafra (MASSOB) caused a stir when he described Nnamdi Kanu and members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) as fraudster.
In an open letter written by Ifeanyi Chijioke, he lashes at Uwazuruike who he described as a fraudster who duped unsuspecting MASSOB members all in the name of Biafra
Dear Sir; I have no other option but to openly write this letter to you; I could have forwarded this letter through a third party but as your entire life is all about insincerity and betrayal, I have to push it openly to avoid one allegation or another. You might suddenly wake up tomorrow and accuse me of going to UN with you to sign Biafra independence. You used Nigerian plate number but urged MASSOB to use Biafra plate number. You mobilized MASSOB to protest for Jega’s removal leaving the freedom we thought you are fighting. You live and dine with Nigerian politicians and urge miscreants to terrorize Biafrans, forcefully tasking business men in every market in Biafra land and enriching yourself with it. You were taken into custody and you cowardly betrayed Biafra; yet you fight against Biafra restoration. Biafrans that died in MASSOB without you putting up a fight and betraying them at last; you must be questioned in due time for that and everything you have done against Biafra restoration. These are few reasons I decided to openly address this letter to you; you are deceitful and dangerous, you are not worth a conversation with a true Biafran, you can fight against Biafra restoration because that will seriously be your worst nightmare if restored.
Sir; you have made several unguarded statements regarding Biafra restoration; you have also made statements concerning Biafran leader, Nnamdi Kanu. Your last press statement largely propels this letter of mine. You might have quite known Nnamdi Kanu when he was fighting for our freedom under MASSOB without knowing you were after your pocket; familiarity being the reason you make unguarded statements. I want to bring to your notice that Nnamdi Kanu is no longer the Nnamdi Kanu you used to know; he is now the property of Biafrans, he does not belong to his family or wife any longer, he belongs to over 70 million Biafrans. He is no longer an individual but an institution; I bet you have no knowledge of that which is why you rant like a wayward woman. You expelled Nnamdi Kanu from MASSOB when he questioned your insincerity and deceit towards Biafra restoration; kidnapped him and tortured him for his resoluteness. Don't make us remember this past that will hurt you so badly. That rejected man is now the corner stone of Biafra, the lion of Biafra and the hope of Biafra. He carries the fate of over 70 million Biafrans. He will restore Biafra but over our dead body shall you take part or enjoy this Biafra you today fight and oppose.
I want you to know that any statement concerning Nnamdi Kanu is directly to over 70 million Biafrans; I want you to also know that whatsoever you directed at Nnamdi Kanu was not at his personality but at entire people of Biafra. Before you address Nnamdi Kanu; always see entire Biafrans in his name; and if you can stand over 70 million of us, then go on and talk disrespectfully about Nnamdi Kanu. But if you can’t, honorably address any issue regarding him.
This Nnamdi Kanu you talk to without fear; are you not aware that with a single command from the prison, you will be no more even this minute you are reading this letter? Uwazurike; I had urged you to go home and rest than oppose Biafra. You cannot stand the tsunami of over 70 million Biafrans, you dare not joke with the heart beat of Biafrans. Nnamdi Kanu is the reason Biafrans live and attacking him is attacking the life of Biafra. I urge you to desist from that; you have done your part and failed woefully. A sincere loser will acknowledge a true fighter. Biafrans will destroy you because of everything Nnamdi Kanu has done; making Biafra a reality and sacrificing his life among others.
Biafrans all over the world might be keeping you quit; to lynch you for the lives you took when we thought you were fighting for freedom without knowing you were fighting for your pocket will not cost a thing but that same Nnamdi Kanu is the reason you are still alive. He taught Biafrans how to be civil and disciplined unlike the years you created kidnappers and hoodlums in guise of freedom fighting. You are seriously becoming so irrelevant that you feel attacking Nnamdi Kanu will give you publicity; you will be denied of that once more.
IPOB had promised to come up against you in few days; I will only urge for retraction because you don’t worth it. You are gone and gone forever that no true Biafran will take your words serious; attack against Nnamdi Kanu is attack against entire Biafrans, your statement can well be understood to be frustration and move to assist the FG in fighting against Biafra restoration. You seem to know little about IPOB; they have never lost a fight and that is the spirit Nnamdi Kanu put in over 70 million people. Biafra will be restored and you will be legally prosecuted and justice will be done; no matter how much you oppose Biafra, she will come and you will be brought to justice.
Disgracefully; you have connived with Nigeria to testify against Biafra in secret; what is your fear? You believe that once you kill Nnamdi Kanu there would be nobody like him to restore Biafra so you can carry on, the bad news is Nnamdi Kanu will restore Biafra because Chukwuokike Abiama puru ime ihe nile determined- gave him to Biafrans simply to restore Biafra. Your effort is as useless as everything you claimed you have done for Biafra; Nnamdi Kanu has possessed over 70 million Biafrans that nothing can stop Biafra restoration. Testifying against Biafra is also part of freedom fighting? Sir; I sincerely urge you to go back and wait for the time or seek asylum in Nigeria because time is fast approaching.
