- Ralph Uwazuruike, the founder of MASSOB, says IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu has been compromised
- The MASSOB founder alleged that the federal government bought the IPOB leader houses in London
- Uwazuruike said Kanu had been secretly recruited by the federal government to destroy the Biafran movement
Ralph Uwazuruike, the founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), says the federal government has bought mansions for IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu in London making him compromised.
Uwazuruike speaking to The Interview, a monthly magazine said Kanu had been secretly recruited by the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to destroy the Biafran movement from within.

He said: “Apparently they saw Nnamdi Kanu as someone of high value for use. They heard him shouting on radio and approached him and he accepted. Naturally, only a strong, principled man can say no because they will give you irresistible offers.
“I know the mansions Nnamdi Kanu and people like him have abroad, given to them by the same government, – the same security agencies. Don’t worry, the truth will emerge soon.”
The MASSOB founder also added that Kanu’s insistence on the boycott of the November Anambra governorship election is a ploy to favour the All Progressives Congress (APC) to take over the state.
Uwazuruike said Kanu was a mere rabble-rouser as he had no clue about how to attain Biafra and an understanding of the process of a referendum.
The MASSOB leader said: “Let him tell you his own agenda. What does he know about Biafra? Somebody who doesn’t know the difference between an election and a referendum; that there is no difference between election and referendum.
“He says ‘give me Biafra or give me a date for referendum.’ So, what is the difference between the two? All the materials you use in a referendum are the same you use in an election. The only difference is that in an election, you may have many political parties while in a referendum, you vote yes or no.”
Uwazuruike slammed Kanu for using hate speech to promote his message, saying innocent Igbos living in the north might lose their lives because of his misinformed utterances.
He said the best way to attain freedom was to use a decent and non-violent approach like Martin Luther King (Jnr.) and Mahatma Gandhi.
In an earlier report by NAIJ.com, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, warned members of the group to desist from giving out money to the Nigeria Police Force.

The IPOB leader accused the Nigeria Police Force of being a criminal organisation, out to extort members of his group.
He said: “Anybody in IPOB that gives money to the zoo police for their bail will be expelled from IPOB. The zoo police are using IPOB to make money because some people are not mentally tough enough to resist them until our dedicated legal team arrives to secure their release."
