The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has condemned a statement credited to the leader of the Movement for Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, alleging that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu blackmailed him with Biafra radio.
IPOB in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, in Enugu on Friday, faulted Uwazuruike’s statement, saying “Nnamdi Kanu funded Radio Biafra from his own pocket after the initial MASSOB’s three months support elapsed.
Powerful in the statement said “the whole world knew Nnamdi Kanu was on Radio Biafra soliciting for assistance in 2009, how can Uwazuruike claim he is the founder of the station when it’s a big lie?
“Every Biafran knows that the current Radio Biafra making waves all over the world had no input from Uwazuruike. Our leader founded Radio Biafra and relaunched it in April, 2014, with the active support of Uche Mefor, his deputy.”
