The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has given the leader of Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), Chief Ralph Uwazurike, four days to provide evidence that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB as a body, are fraudsters who are out to deceive gullible public.
IPOB in a statement signed by Uche Mefor and others, threatened that if at the expiry of the four days, Chief Uwazurike fails to make available all evidence of fraud he alleged against Kanu and IPOB, they will release information about him that are laden with facts and figures, and all he has struggled to hide from public knowledge.
IPOB insisted that Uwuzuruike’s evidence must be proved beyond every reasonable doubt and that evidence must not be mere conjecture, but verifiable and provable acts of fraud carried out by either Mazi Kanu or members of IPOB.
“IPOB is a mass movement of freedom fighters with a singular objective which is the restoration of the nation of Biafra. Biafra, as viewed through the prism of IPOB consists of all the states in the present South East and Sout-South geopolitical zone of Nigeria except Edo State.
“For such a character like Uwazuruike to accuse Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB as fraudsters and deceivers, he must provide substantive evidence, and he has been given till January 15, 2017 to provide the evidence.
“Had you Uwazuruike remained faithful, honest and sincere to the ideals of freedom fighting, we won’t have had any need for the emergence of IPOB or any other organisation fighting to restore our dignity, as a people and our God given right to live as free men.
“If at the expiry of the period given to you to make public available all your evidence of fraud against Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB, you fail to do so, we will release information about you, laden with facts and figures. All you have struggled to hide from public knowledge will be laid bare. At the end of this exercise, BIM members and MASSOB members themselves will lynch you.”
In a sharp reaction, Chief Uwazurike said, “Tell them that I don’t join issues with internet fraudsters. That is my final word.”
