The Niger Delta ex militant commander and head of the Biafra Customary Government (BCG), Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo was reported to have described the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as a criminal who hides behind the “Biafra struggle” to extort money from Igbos and has threatened to get him.
Alhaji Dokubo who recently formed the Biafra Customary Government (BCG) and declared himself as its commander, accused the IPOB leader of turning the struggle to personal source of income. According to the statement in a video he posted on his social media. It was also gathered that Asari Dokubo alleged that Nnamdi Kanu had been diverting funds meant for the Biafran cause for his personal use. In a recent video he released on social media, the ex-militant leader narrated how he treated IPOB members who were injured during violence in the Southeast.
He said the claim by Nnamdi Kanu that he received N20 million from him was false. He disclosed that he had never received a dime from the IPOB leader. “We are waiting for them to bring the evidence. They came to Cotonou to meet me, I hosted them, I fed them, they didn’t bring a dime. “I had paid several medical bills for IPOB members in different places they had been injured. “But Nnamdi Kanu thinks that because he is a thief and because stealing, fraudulent, drug-pushing, human parts trafficking, is so wide with Igbo people, he can control everybody. “You want to form a nation with Igbos, it will definitely become a criminal country. “I have never looked for Nnamdi Kanu, He was the one looking for my contact everywhere. Some of my followers who came to me to join IPOB, I allowed them to do so, “He is always doing the callings, I have never picked up my phone to call him before. Because he is the one who knows when he is free in the prison to call. ‘He called and begged there should be cooperation, which I agreed. Nnamdi Kanu is a supreme coward, He added that Nnamdi Kanu was deceiving Igbo people with Biafra, He therefore urged the Igbo people not to allow him to be conning them,“Biafra is your business now, you have no other avenue for gainful income, It is a pity how Igbo people have fallen for this evil, but your time is up.”
“I am out for you and I will get you, Nnamdi Kanu I’m not in your category but for this, I will surely bring you down. I will destroy this evil empire that is working as a hindrance to the restoration of Biafra.” Asari Dokubo said. The Freedom fighter is not the first person to accuse Nnamdi Kanu of profiting from the Biafra struggle. Ralph Uwazuruike, leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has several occasions called Nnamdi Kanu a fraud, The rift between the two former allies started after Nnamdi Kanu said that he gave Asari Dokubo N20 million to support his cause.
