The founder of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, Ralph Uwazuruike, has said the federal government is using the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, to destroy Biafra.

In an interview in the current edition of The Interview, Mr. Uwazuruike accused Mr. Kanu of working hand-in-glove with the security services to destabilise the struggle for Biafra, starting with the forthcoming November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.

“Nnamdi is fighting against Biafra,” Mr. Uwazuruike said. “The security agencies have seen Nnamdi as somebody with a high value that they can use. They heard him shouting on radio and they approached him and he accepted to work with them.”

He continued, “No election in Anambra State is aimed at favouring the All Progressives Congress (APC) to edge out Governor Obiano through destabilisation; that’s the only thing and it’s being arranged by the security agencies, using Kanu.”

The MD/Editor-In-Chief of The Interview, Azu Ishiekwene, described the current edition as “a rare insight into the complex and troubling identity politics confronting the country.”

The MASSOB founder said it was regrettable that his efforts to achieve Biafra by peaceful means were being sabotaged by Mr. Kanu who, he said, has been hijacked by security agencies and some pay masters he refused to name.

In the interview, Mr. Uwazuruike said, “I know the mansions that Nnamdi Kanu and people like him have abroad…let Kanu keep disgracing himself like he’s doing now, because I know he’s being funded and I know those funding him.”

He described Mr. Kanu’s arrest and bail conditions as a set up, wondering why a man who was released on health grounds has not visited any hospital since his release from detention.

He criticised the Muhammadu Buhari administration for lacking the capacity to govern, saying, “APC won an election but didn’t have a plan to govern.”

Mr. Uwazuruike said former Independent National Electoral Commission Chairman, Attahiru Jega, rigged President Goodluck Jonathan out of office, adding that, “If Jonathan had remained the president of Nigeria till today, the US dollar would not have exchanged for more than N50. Nigeria will still beg Jonathan to come back.”

Also in this edition, Mike Ozekhome, reflects on his recent legal battles with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission; while development activist, Furera Jamure, provides some insights on her efforts to raise role models in the North.

    Uwazuruike, I don’t know what you are thinking, brother please you need to wakeup and think better before you start commenting on Mazi Nnamdi kanu, the way you talk about biafra is shameful, people will see you as jealous fellow, can’t you join hands with Mazi Nnamdi kanu together with one voice to actualize our dream of freedom.

    Mr Uwazuruike Biafra is a Country and not private organisation as you would like it to look. Stop dancing Naked in the street. It is not necessarily that you or Nnamdi Kanu will be important in Biafra realization. So it is over for you and it can be over for Kanu too if he misbehave. Biafra is bigger than any Man.

    • Julius

      Oh, so he hasn’t misbehave yet ?

    beg Jonathan to come back”

    • Julius

  • aisha ani

    I am sensing that the Biafra struggle has been taken over by ” some Benjamin Franklins” and some person(s) did not get their share. What a shame.

    • Julius

      lol@Benjamin Franklins” . Don’t you know that’s what all the fake crying about some damn imaginary brand new country is about ?

  • Paschal Charles

  • Susan Mitchell

    Now Uwazuruike can not make a simple statement without mentioning Kanu?!
    What a shame! This is to say Evil doesn’t pay. He has the money but no
    respect and integrity.

    UWAZURUIKE HAS BEEN IN AGONAL BREATHS LATELY.
    Sad not to focus on the task at hand but name calling against a compatriot
