The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to the latest attack on its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, by the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).

KanyiDaily recalls that MASSOB had yesterday said it was wrong for Nnamrii Kanu to stay abroad and think that he could achieve Biafra from outside Nigeria.

MASSOB also cautioned Nna!di Kanu to desist from insulting its leader, Ralph Uwazuruike, over issues concerning the struggle for Biafra.

The group faulted Kanu for accusing Uwazuruike of thwarting the fight towards achieving a sovereign state of Biafra, adding that the MASSOB leader brought the IPOB leader into the struggle.

However, in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB noted that three thing which awaits all freedom fighters are imprisonment, exile or death.

IPOB made reference to the biblical story of Moses who escaped from Egypt but later came back to deliver his people from slavery, and noted that Nnamdi Kanu being outside the country does not mean he is a coward.

The group said that Chief Uwazuruike and MASSOB were inconsequential, adding that they do not know what freedom fighting is all about.

“That our leader, Nnamdi Kanu being outside the country does not mean he is a coward, he is there preparing the coming of the new nation and the new nation is about to come and Uwazuruike is there playing to the gallery. That he is registering our Biafra in UNPO, is making jest of himself,” IPOB said.

“Uwazuruike should be told in clear terms that Moses ran away when the Egyptians were after his life and at the end, he led the people of Israel out of Egypt to the promised land.

“Freedom fighting, it’s either you are in prison or in exile or you are dead.

“Those are the three things that happen to a freedom fighter, either he is in prison talking about freedom, in exile still talking about freedom or they kill you.”
