Kanu in a radio broadcast on Sunday, May 10 took a swipe on Uwazuruike for allegedly taking the matters of the Igbo to the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation (UNPO) in The Hague, Netherlands.
According to Kanu, the actions of Uwazuruike belittles the struggles made by several Igbo groups to recognised bodies such as the United Nations Organisation (UNO).
Kanu maintained that IPOB had already gotten the attention of well-known groups such as the United Nations and the African Union.
“All because he wants to be relevant because he knows we are getting Biafra soon, he now ran to UNPO that has the same status with our World Igbo Congress,” Kanu said.
He continued: “UNPO has nothing to do with Biafra, Uwazuruike has destroyed Biafra name, a man who built his house with Biafra money, he said he has taken Biafra to UNPO, is UNPO part of UN, the group has nothing to do with Biafra.
“Biafra can not be built on lies, you are warned, you have Nigeria blood in you, stop deceiving the people and yourself.”
Meanwhile, a group, Peace Accord Forum (PAF) has rubbished comments credited to Kanu about Nigeria's First Lady, Hajiya Aisha Buhari.
Kanu was quoted as saying: “They have been fooling their fellow Nigerians and I am certain Aisha Buhari and her gang will end up in jail.”
In its reaction on Thursday, May 7, the group in a statement sent to journalists and signed by its national coordinator, Ambrose Omorodion, said: “The baseless allegations can only come from deceptive and unsound humans, bigots and riff-raffs.”
