Uche Mefor has resigned as the deputy leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Nnamdi Kanu.Apart from resigning as the IPOB deputy leader, Mefor, who was Nnamdi Kanu’s right hand-man, has also floated a new radio station called “Biafra Human Rights and Freedom Radio (BHFR)”.This was disclosed in a tweet on Twitter by Emeka Gift, a top IPOB member and pro-Biafra activist.It said; “Breaking: Mazi Uche Mefor resigns as deputy leader of Indigenous people of Biafra, floats new radio station “Biafra Human Rights and Freedom Radio” (BHFR) More details soon,” Emeka Gift tweeted.The development is coming nine months after Kanu had said Mefor cautioned him on his claim that President Muhammadu Buhari was dead and had since been replaced by Jubril Al-Sudanni from Sudan.“I keep saying this every time, my Deputy, Uche Mefor will say don’t say it, don’t say that Buhari is dead”, Kanu had said during one of his broadcasts on Radio Biafra in February.Mefor had called for a change of approach and attitude among IPOB members but his appeals were met with verbal assaults from members of the group.The estranged IPOB deputy leader is said to be having a feud with Nnamdi Kanu which culminated in a very serious war of words between the duo IPOB leaders.Meanwhile, before Mefor’s resignation, Nnamdi Kanu was accused of being autocratic, arrogant, and fraudulent by some of his former allies. It is believed that the IPOB leader is running a profit-driven freedom fighting movement.
The former deputy leader of the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Uche Mefor has suddenly deleted his Facebook page and disappeared into the thin air. This recent development has finally collaborated the crack ElombahNews had earlier reported in August.
The estranged deputy leader, Uche Mefor who became very vociferous called for a change of approach and attitude among the members of the movement but his appeals fell to the wrong ears. Instead of resolving Mefor’s outburst diplomatically, Nnamdi Kanu ordered his attack dogs to shred Mefor’s personality into pieces.
Kanu even boasted on his malicious radio that any principal officer of the rogue movement that shares contrary view with that of his own will be automatically dismissed from the organization and punished severely.
ElombahNews had reported about a feud between Mefor and Nnamdi Kanu which culminated to a very serious war of words between the duo.
Sources who are very close to IPOB DOS told ElombahNews that Kanu who could not condone the overbearing nature of Uche Mefor secretly dismissed him from the hierarchy of the organization. His removal was done clandestinely to avoid raising unnecessary eyebrows which could further whittle the scant patronage currently enjoyed by the crooks in charge of the outlawed organization.
Though when ElombahNews probed another source concerning the whereabouts of Uche Mefor and why his Facebook page was taken down, the source said that Mefor took that very decision because of security reasons.
Another reliable ally of Mefor said that Nnamdi Kanu crossed the red line after he disgraced their former African representative, George Onyibe who was a strong hitman of IPOB out of office. What will befall Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB in no distant time will be shocking. Any ear that hears it will tingle, the ally said.
Nnamdi Kanu, who is running a salary driven freedom fighting movement has been accused of being autocratic, arrogant and fraudulent by some of his former allies.
However, IPOB is on the verge of drowning. Many are deserting the rogue movement after discovering how irresponsible and insincere the leaders have been.
Deputy director of Radio Biafra, Mr Uche Mefor has said that his group, headed by Nnamdi Kanu will participate in Nigerian politics. This is directly contrary to the earlier position of the group which has been in place since 2017.
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu had shortly after being freed from prison, started a premeditated attack on the political arm of the Biafran struggle, Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria (MOBIN).
While MOBIN canvassed to have Biafrans in Nigerian politics, to run for offices and take over political control of the Biafran territory, Kanu’s IPOB labeled MOBIN betrayers and even directed his foots soldiers to attack MOBIN directors and officers campaigning for political struggle in Nigeria.
Kanu on two different occasions in 2017, haf accepted that the MOBIN methodology was better and owned up by agreeing that his group will be involved in the Anambra 2017 governorship polls.
One meeting was organized by Ala Igbo Development Foundation (ADF), in Enugu, while the second was organized by the Supreme Council of Elders of the Indigenous People of Biafra, and hosted by late Dr Dozie Ikedife.
Jungle Journalist Media Ltd in an exclusive report then, observed that strangely, Kanu after granting press interview that he has agreed for elections to hold, quickly denied it, making claims that he never accepted the political option.
However in a very recent online discussion panel, monitored by MOBIN MEDIA, Uche Mefor was quoted to have said that IPOB would now begin to participate in politics, and using the exact words of MOBIN, is quoted to have said that they want to take ‘control of the Biafran territory politically’.
His words “IPOB is doing everything humanely possible to make sure we go back to the original stage whence we started. We are trying to identify who are our brothers, who are our sisters, who are our neighbors. This is something Nigeria has carefully through their agents over the years destroyed and put confusion into us. But we are not going to allow that confusion to be sustained…
“There is the third one which is effective government. We must have a government we call the government of Biafra. The indigenous people of Biafra should be in control of decision making in Biafraland. Whether we like it or not. The reason why we decided and meticulously deviate from the temptation of going into Nigerian politics is because if we do that, we will be destroyed forever. They set a trap for us. The system is corrupt, the system is not working ad you can see, your vote des not count, they buy off votes, even the supreme Court of Nigeria is now at the centre of deciding elections.
“Your so-called PVC does not count. We refuse to be driven into darkness but we are not going to allow ourselves to be on that particular mindset for a long time. Nigerian political system is a very devilish one, they Apply gutter methodology.
“They are telling us, ‘let them be talking while we are taking decision about what is going on in their own land. This we have studied, and going forward, we are going to descend on every evil legislation in Biafraland and destroy it, and the people of Biafra will take over the control of their territory.
“If they apply gutter methodology, we will also apply gutter methodology. In order to take over what belongs to us. We are going to use their system and work against them. If they want to be destroyed, we will help them to destroy it.
“We are not going to back away from the civil disobedience method. At the same time, we are not going to leave the political offices especially those in Biafraland. I am talking about Biafran territory. The policies. The political decisions been taken must be a reflection of the wishes of the people of Biafra.
“We have the capacity, we have the number, we are telling them ahead of time”, he stated.
