The leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force (NDPSF) Asari Dokubo has once again tackled the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leader Nnamdi Kanu.
Dokubo faulted IPOB for saying he was behind the reported extradition of its leader from Kenya.
The Nation reports Kanu and Dokubo have been at loggerheads over the quest for Biafra — the very cause that unites them.
The cold war between them resulted in the formation of the Biafra Customary Government (BCG) which Dokubo announced in March 2020 with himself as the head.
Reacting on Sunday during a Facebook live monitored by The Nation, Dokubo said: “IPOB said I was the one that sold them out, that I betrayed them, am not the one who said it. They are also the one that said I betrayed their leader in Kenya.
“I don’t know where Nnmadi Kanu was living, I don’t know where he took off for. They said I was the person who gave him up. I now said I was the person, the next thing they said was Asari Dokubo was the person. Look at these idiots, what are you going to do to me?”
He further carpeted the group for being responsible for the constant closure of business in the South East region as a result of the sit-at-home order.
He said: “IPOB was presented as a platform for reconciliation, but today it is not fighting for Biafra. Today, schools, businesses have been closed down.
“If people sit at home, it is their choice that they are afraid of you people, it is not because you people are powerful. They don’t know you people are nothing.
“People are afraid of being killed that’s why they’ve continued to sit at home, not because they love Nnmadi Kanu. If there is adequate security by the government, why is there no sit-at-home in Port Harcourt? Calabar? Uyo? It is because the government of these places are saying don’t ever come here.
“Very soon Igbos will come out and say it is okay. Our old women are starving they can’t go to the farm, markets. At Onitsha market, people are afraid of doing businesses because they are scared of being killed.”
