The crack in the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) seems not to have been fully addressed despite the resignation of Uche Mefor as deputy leader to Nnamdi Kanu, as the leader of the succession agitating group now scrap the deputy leader position.
Naijacrawl had earlier reported about the resignation of Mefor who ascribed the leadership style and approach of Kanu as the main reason he resigned.
Meanwhile, the Head of Directorate of State (DOS), China Edoziem, accused Mefor of “insubordination and disobedience” to constituted authorities in the organization, particularly to the IPOB leader.
Mefor, according to Edoziem, was “instructed by our leader to be attending his unit meetings in London and pay his monthly dues as everyone else does, but he disobeyed this simple instruction from his leader with the excuse that he as the deputy leader will neither attend unit meetings or pay monthly dues because he is entitled to same privilege accruing to Nazi Nnamdi Kanu as leader of IPOB worldwide.”
He said the office of deputy leader of the IPOB “is abolished with immediate effect and ceases to be a part of the IPOB leadership structure.”
He added: “Henceforth, nobody should be referred to as the deputy leader of IPOB. Throughout the history of freedom fighting, there is nothing like deputy leader.”
