Legit.ng gathers that the MASSOB leader stated that IPOB’s activities are unhelpful to the Biafra struggle, as it could lead to an unplanned war.
Uwazurike challenged Nnamdi Kanu to submit to arrest to prove that he is a true leader.
He stated: “A real freedom fighter submits to arrest but Kanu has told his members to burn down the country if he is re-arrested, a true indication that he was paid to destabilise MASSOB”.
He further accused the federal government of making Kanu popular, stating that the IPOB leader would not have gained such notoriety if he had simply been ignored.
He further stated: “The IPOB has no agenda and I advise Igbo leaders to condemn its activities.
“Nnamdi Kanu has no agenda and he is only thriving on the relevance given to him by the government.
“I recruited him and I know his capacities and he is not a leader.
“I have 25 steps towards actualizing Biafra and Kanu does not have even one agenda.”
While lamenting that IPOB was working to destroy MASSOB’s agenda, Uwazurike also urged Igbos to refrain from attacking northerners, as the army continues with its Operation Python Dance campaign.
