The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has revealed the reason behind the resignation of their Deputy Leader and Radio Biafra Deputy Director Uche Mefor.
AUTHENTIC NEWS GIANT reported that Uche Mefor voluntarily stepped aside as Deputy leader of IPOB over rift with the Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu and the leadership.
IPOB former deputy leader, Uche Mefor is said to be having a feud with Nnamdi Kanu which culminated in a very serious war of words between the duo IPOB leaders.
Following his resignation, Uche Mefor had also floated a new radio station called: “Biafra Human Rights and Freedom Radio (BHFR)“.
Reacting to the Resignation of Uche Mefor, the IPOB Head directorate of states, Mazi Chika Edoziem pointed out that Uche Mefor Resigned due to gross insubordination and indisclipline.
The Memo reads:
The global family of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a movement founded with the sole objective to restore the lost sovereignty of the Biafran Nation and the dignity of our people.
This family is one whose foundation is built upon very solid fundamental principles that has made it impossible for enemies and detractors both within and without to cause any disaffection capable of fracturing the family.
The directorate of state been the highest administrative institution of the Indigenous people of Biafra family (IPOB) worldwide wish to state as follows:
That the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide is under one central command and one leader in the person of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Our Command and Control mechanism is the irreducible IRREDUCIBLE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE upon which the discipline and cohesion of our movement rest.
Simply put obey the last order/command from our leader or a person designated in his stead or quietly and honorably resign.
Our movement attach the greatest importance to discipline. Therefore, insubordination in any guise or form constitute the highest act of indiscipline and irrespective of the position one may occupy, grave consequences follow any act of insubordination.
Mazi Obidi Obienu relived of his position as IPOB North American Rep for gross acts of insubordination. He convened a meeting in total contravention of IPOB Code of Conduct.
Mazi Uche Mefor in a zoo meeting he conveyed on Sunday the 22nd of November 2020 made some allegations against the leadership of the Indigenous people of Biafra and went as far as calling our leader a liar.
Mazi Mefor conveniently forgot or refused to tell those he called for the Zoom meeting the genesis of his problem with the DOS and by extension our leader.
Mazi Mefor was instructed by our leader to be attending his Unit meetings in London and pay his monthly dues as everyone else does but no he disobeyed this simple instruction from his leader with the excuse that he as the deputy leader will either attend Unit meetings or pay monthly dues because he is entitled to same privilege accruing to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as the leader of IPOB worldwide.
When he Mazi Mefor suspended the UK National coordinator which he had no right to without prior authorization from our leader and wanted the hard-working officer to be expelled from IPOB which our leader rejected. Instead our leader asked Mazi Mefor to allow the National Coordinator carry on with his duties after serving the suspension given to him by Mazi Mefor.
In flagrant disregard and disobedience to our leader’s directive to allow the UK National do his work. Mazi Mefor vindictively wrote to the British Home office with the objective to ruin a and nullify every Asylum chance of IPOB Asylum seekers in the UK.
The same process used by himself and his PA Mazi Solomon Agbo to obtain UK residency he sought to deny other Biafrans. Mefor’s letter to the UK government has made it almost impossible for IPOB family members in the UK to receive favorable hearing at the tribunals. IPOB’s ethos of Be Your Brother’s keeper was destroyed by Mazi Mefor’s letters to the UK Home office.
Because our leader refused to expel a very hard-working UK National Coordinator, Mazi Mefor transferred his anger towards the leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra and the directorate of state.
When Mazi Mefor complained that officers in the security department were not briefing him on the inner workings of our volunteers on the ground especially every security detail and plan on ground in Biafraland. Onyendu informed Mefor during a recorded DOS meeting that he Mefor should come to him every Tuesday for a briefing on matters pertaining to our volunteers and security for which he may require information. Mazi Mefor never honoured this invitation. He wanted to receive briefings direct from officers in the field.
Mazi Mefor has on many publicly occasion confronted our leader thereby exhibiting gross act of indiscipline for someone occupying the position he held. The case of the infamous religious video he issued where he spent a great deal of time publicly castigating, insulting and questioning the direction the leadership is taken the movement.
Mazi Mefor refused to broadcast with our leader when our leader requested him to. His reason been that our leader MUST not talk about or raise the issue of the dead Buhari and the impostor in Aso Rock if our leader wants him Mefor to broadcast with him.
Instance of Mazi Mefor’s indiscipline and acts of insubordination are too numerous to mention here but in the fullness of time it shall be laid bare.
It’s no secret that our radio is always under attack when our leader is broadcasting and we are always working to be ahead of those trying to stop our massage from getting to our people. There were numerous occasions when our radio Biafra App would be playing something completely different from our leader’s live broadcast.
The Directorate of State hereby challenge Mazi Uche Mefor IPOB worldwide family that lie he claimed our leader told. It is on record that our leader on numerous occasions lamented that some of our platforms has been taken over by the zoo Government because there is no reason our Radio Biafra App under the control of Mazi Mefor must be playing a recorded program anytime our leader is broadcasting live on all other platforms.
Bearing in mind the sacrifices made by our people in sweat and blood for this Restoration project, no one, be it a high-ranking principal officer will be allowed to derail our match to freedom.
Knowing that IPOB cannot afford to be distracted from our set objective which is the restoration of the Sovereignty and independence of Biafra Nation.
The office of the deputy leader of the indigenous people of Biafra is abolished with immediate effect and ceases to be part of the IPOB structure. Henceforth nobody should be referred to as the deputy leader of the Biafra (IPOB). throughout the history of freedom fighting there is nothing like deputy leader.
Any family member of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide led by Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu be it principal officer or not who is not able and willing to follow directives from our leader whether directly passed on to the person of through the Directorate will do well to step aside or resign from their position of service now.
The Directorate of State will not condone any act of insubordination from any officer or family member irrespective of your standing or visibility in the MOVEMENT.
“At the appropriate time, The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will address some of these issues touched upon in this statement.”
“Let it be on record that Mazi Uche Mefor had voluntarily resigned from his position as the deputy leader on two occasions in the past but Onyendu Nazi Nnamdi Kanu declined to accept his resignation on both instance. Since he has gone public to resign his position and remove himself from IPOB family we wish him the best.”
