The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to the challenges posed to its leader, Nnamdi Kanu by its sister group, the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, asking him to return to the country to fight, if he isnt a coward.
IPOB stated that three things await freedom fighters like as its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, which includes; imprisonment, exile or death.
This, the group made known in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Emma Power.
IPOB alluded to the biblical story of the old testament when Moses escaped from Egypt but later came back to deliver his people from slavery, describing Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, MASSOB leader, as a jester.
The IPOB said Chief Uwazuruike and the MASSOB does 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.”
