The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has warned the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) to watch its ranks and control those seeking to use the movement to make personal gains.

MASSOB accused one of the members of the Supreme Council of Elders of IPOB, Dr. Dozie Ikedife of playing politics with the movement.

The National Director of Information, Comrade Samuel Edeson, in a statement said “MASSOB wishes to clarify itself on the supremacy claims by Nnamdi Kanu’s led IPOB & Rtd Justice Eze Ozobu led Supreme Council of Elders of IPOB which has brought no good to Biafran struggle. It is understandable that there are many groups agitating for the restoration of Biafra through their different methods, approaches and applications.”

Adding that “This is because the integrity and genuineness of some of the groups are questionable as some elements among them do not show true spirit of Biafra. Dr. Dozie Ikedife of Supreme Council of Elders of IPOB is among them. MASSOB sees Dr. Dozie Ikedife as a threat to the aspirations of the Supreme Council of Elders because of his open and systematic political romances with the Buhari-led administration.”

“Dr. Dozie Ikedife as executive member of Supreme Council of Elders led some Igbo elders to congratulate Buhari in Aso villa when he emerged as President. Again, as one who claims to be an Indigenous person of Biafra, he has never condemned or spoken against the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu; the killings of unarmed and non-violent Biafran demonstrators and several human rights abuses against Nnamdi Kanu by the Buhari led administration.

“General Joe Achuzia, who is the Secretary General of Supreme Council of Elders of IPOB and other respected Igbo elders, have severally spoken out against the detention of Nnamdi Kanu, the killings of Biafra agitators and other injustices meted against us,” Edeson said.

Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu is currently facing trial for treason.
