The father of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) HRM Eze Israel Kanu has alleged that Ralph Uwazuruike, leader of Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) is behind his son’s continuous detention in prison.

The Zonal Coordinator revealed that the struggle was not a child’s play while given assurance that youth will engage in all manner of peacefully revolution to get their leader out ones and for all.
Mbamara explained that Kanu’s continued unlawful detention by federal government will not deterred their struggle and reminded governors of the zone that a day of reckoning was fast approaching.
Also speaking on Kanu’s detention, an IPOB official and a. Germany-based of Imo State extraction Mr. Chibuzo Eric Nwokonna said whether Nigerian government like it or not Biafra was going as soon as necessary documents are completed.
Nwokonna who was among hundreds of IPOB members that witnessed the traditional marriage of Kanu’s younger sister in Umuahia told newsmen that Biafra’s liberation is a real venture.
He explained that many foreign countries including Germany where they have highest number of people for the actualization of Biafra have expressed readiness to support them on all ramifications including the Jews in Israel.
