Biafra: Crack In IPOB As Nnamdi Kanu’s Deputy Goes Into ‘Hiding’




Biafra: IPOB Takes Major Decision On Deputy Leader Position After Uche Mefor’s Resignation

There seems to be a crack in the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) with Nnamdi Kanu, said to be having a feud with his deputy, Uche Mefor.

Naija News understands that Mefor, who was Kanu’s right-hand man and former deputy leader of the proscribed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), has deleted his Facebook page and disappeared into the thin air.

The sudden disappearance of the IPOB deputy leader, whose Facebook page has also been deleted as of the time of filing this report, finally collaborates with the crack that was earlier reported in August.

Recall Naija News had reported that Kanu had said in the past that Mefor had on several occasions cautioned him on his claim that President Muhammadu Buhari was dead and had since been replaced byJubril Al-Sudanni from Sudan.

Apart from this, Mefor had called for a change of approach and attitude among IPOB members but his appeals were met with verbal Assaults from members of his 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.

It was learned that Kanu who could not condone the overbearing nature of Uche Mefor according to sources who are very close to the IPOB leader, secretly dismissed him from the hierarchy of the organization.

Mefor’s removal, Naija News gathered, was done in a secretive way to avoid raising unnecessary eyebrows which could further whittle the scant patronage currently enjoyed by the crooks in charge of the outlawed organization.

According to a report filed by ElombahNews, when another source was probed 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.

The report quoted another reliable ally of Mefor to have 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.

Meanwhile, Nnamdi Kanu has been accused of being autocratic, arrogant, and fraudulent by some of his former allies. It is believed that the IPOB leader is running salary-driven freedom fighting movement.
