Grand Patron of the Biafra War veterans, Ramas Asuzu, has claimed that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu is using the renewed agitation for self-determination for personal interest and self-egoism.
Asuzu, who made the remark, while addressing journalists in Aba, Abia State, noted that Kanu should have consulted Igbo elders before commencing the renewed agitation.
He said the activities of the IPOB leader smacks of self-adulation.
According to Asuzu, “This was the way Chief Ralph Uwazuruike of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB started and ended up enriching himself and abandoning the struggle.
“Late Odumegwu Ojukwu fought for the course with his whole might, yet, the world powers deprived us that freedom.
“Though, Nnamdi Kanu started with a negative approach by abusing everybody through Biafra radio. Before such liberation journey, I think he should have consulted the elders. I don’t know if he actually did so, but as the grand patron of War veterans, I’m supposed to be on the roll.”
Lamenting that the Igbos are losing out in the country’s power play, Asuzu noted that the actualization of Biafra is not the panacea to Igbo’s problem.
According to him, “I think the right of Ndigbo should have been the top priority of Kanu before the agitation for the Republic of Biafra.
“I am warning that with the present position of the Country, Nigeria may likely disintegrate naturally, without shooting a bullet.”
