Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu is a Coward, Return home and fight if you are not Afraid – MASSOB



The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, led Ralph Uwazuruike, MASSOB, has pictured the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu as a coward, challenging him to come back to Nigeria.

The war  started earlier this week between the leaders of the two frontline secessionist groups, Kanu and Uwazuruike.

It began when the IPOB leader dawn his MASSOB counterpart for allegedly reporting the issue of Biafra to the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) in The Hague, Netherlands.

The IPOB leader had described the move as downgrading being that several Igbo groups had already taken Biafra’s matter to United Nations, UN, which was a far more recognized body than Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO).







Acknowledging to this in a utterances, MASSOB National Director of Information, Sunny Okoroafor, on Friday, blasted Kanu, saying that the IPOB leader was not qualified to say anything about the Biafran struggle.

“Where was Nnamdi Kanu when Chief Ralph Uwazuruike started the struggle for Biafra? One thing is clear; Uwazuruike was the first man in this new struggle to hoist Biafran flag in the international arena,” the statement said.

The statement further reminded Kanu that Uwazuruike founded MASSOB, which he (Kanu) was a member and set out stages for the struggle for a Biafran state.

“If the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu is talking about the struggle for Biafra, he should first of all come back home and not to stay outside to make noise.

“He should not be afraid of imprisonment; after all, Nelson Mandela was in prison in South Africa for 27 years. He did not run away and did not abandon his people. Nnamdi Kanu should come down home and fight for the freedom of his people.”








The MASSOB’s statement said it was the height of irresponsibility for anybody to accuse its leader of giving bribe to allow Biafra membership of UNPO.

“We are not corrupt in MASSOB, therefore, will not be accused of giving bribe to anybody or group so that Biafra could be a member of UNPO,” it said
“If Kanu thinks we should be at loggerheads with our neighbours because we are fighting for Biafra, he should be joking.
“MASSOB has come a long way with the Biafra struggle, and we will not allow anybody to distract us,” Okoroafor said.
