Founder of the Movement for Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has blamed Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for the killings being carried out by soldiers in Oyigbo, Rivers State.
Uwazuruike absolves Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, of any blame for the ongoing military operations, adding that the Army only started was finishing out those who killed its operatives and took their rifles.
The secessionist leader said that what is happening in the Oyigbo is a direct consequence of an order issued by Kanu, directing members of the group to kill soldiers, policemen and burn police stations.
According to Uwazuruike such operation by soldiers whenever their colleagues are killed is not new, citing the Odi and Zaki Biam as reference points.
He said what is happening in the Rivers State has nothing to do with Ndigbo and commended the security commanders for their professional conduct.
