Asari Dokubo, a former Niger Delta warlord, has accused the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, of killing ex-ally, Anthony Nwoko, a prophet.
The cleric was murdered by unknown assailants last Sunday night at his apartment located at No. 18 Ezebinugwu Street, Ugbene 2, in the Trans-Ekulu-Abakpa axis of Enugu.
Dokubo, in a video published on Facebook, accused Mr. Kanu, the leader of IPOB, of hiring assassins to kill Nwoko for disagreeing with him.
“It is very sad that our struggle has come to the stage when the IPOB and its leadership under Nnamdi Kanu will order the assassination and the murder of fellow Biafrans who disagree with them on the modalities of achieving our independence as a nation,” Dokubo said.
“It is so so sad that the Kanu who cannot lift a spoon in defence of Biafrans against the killing and brutality visited on our people, on the Igbos especially his own people by the Nigerians occupation office will now turn against his followers to murder those who disagree with him.
“Nnamdi Kanu has open a pandora box and led out the demons of destruction and blood and it is the duty of all of us Biafran to come together and lock, shame the box and to throw it in the deepest part of the ocean. Because this is very dangerous, somebody who cannot lift up a finger against our enemies can only run his mouth is now ordering for the killing of our people.
“And we are expected to keep quiet, everybody knows that Cleric Nwoko was killed by Nnamdi Kanu and his IPOB, I don’t know cleric I have only watched his videos and listened to him.
“I was told by some people who came to see me at my residence in Yenagoa about him but I have never met him. It is so so bad we never thought that one day our struggle will come to this very shameful stage.
“From the very beginning, I have struggled to ignite and reconcile all shades of opinion because I believe that our nation should be a rainbow nation with people of all beliefs who will congregate together in different opinion and colours and move our struggle to its destination. I never envisioned a Biafra that Biafrans will carry arms against their fellow Biafrans.
“Nnamdi Kanu is an opportunist who has come to catch on the painful struggle and sacrifices that others have made.”
