Father of incarcerated leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, Eze Israel Kanu, has accused founder of Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Ralph Uwazuruike, of being responsible for the continued detention of his son.
The monarch made the allegation while addressing journalists in his Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia Palace.
According to Kanu’s father, “Uwazurike was irked because his son raised alarm over huge monies he collected for the well-being of helpless Biafran youths which was misused.”
The traditional ruler maintained that “Uwazuruike masterminded the arrest of Kanu,” who doubles as the Director of Radio Biafra upon his arrival in Nigeria.
Stressing that his son never committed the crimes in the country, Eze Kanu appealed to the Nigerian Government to release his son.
Kanu has been incarcerated since 2015 when he was arrested by operatives of the Department of State Service, DSS, in Lagos.
The IPOB leader is currently standing trial before justice Binta Nyako of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja for charges bothering on terrorism.
During the last court sitting, Justice Nyako had struck out six of the 11 count charges levelled against Kanu.
