Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu’s a “nobody”, wants to put Igbo youths in harm’s way – Uwazuruike
The Founder of Biafra Independence Movement (BIM), Ralph Uwazuruike, says the Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu is a “nobody” who only wants to put Igbo youths in harm’s way by pitching them against the security agencies.
Uwazuruike stated this during a press briefing in Owerri, the Imo State capital, on Monday.
He warned the London, UK-based Kanu against inciting the youths against the security agencies, warning that the consequences would be dire.
“Those agitating for war know they can’t defeat Nigeria but they want to enrich themselves, so they have continued to deceive our youth.
“Igbos cannot afford to go to another war with Nigeria and at no point should they be incited into hostilities with the rest of Nigeria.
“Mobilising youths against their leaders and constituted authority is what we should guard against because we cannot defeat Nigeria,” Uwazuruike stated.
He advised the governors of the South-East and South-South regions to stand against agitation for war and take all lawful steps to prevent their regions from going into crisis.
Uwazurike applauded Governor Hope Uzodimma for the way he handled the crisis in Orlu and advised that Igbos should not attract negative attention to themselves.
The MASSOB leader further advised the governors to take over the Eastern Security Network to ensure the outfit was not deployed for mischievous purpose.
He further recommended that the network be trained and equipped and made to work in synergy with the police and other security agencies.
He encouraged Igbos who want to contest for the presidency in 2023 to start their consultations now, saying that they had the right to run for the nation’s highest office.
