The leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force (NDPSF), Mujahid Asari Dokubo, has carpeted Nnamdi Kanu, leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), over an alleged N20 million gift.

He accused Kanu of turning the Biafran struggle into a business.

Dokubo made the allegation in a new video, where he accused Kanu of diverting funds meant for the Biafran struggle.

The commercialisation of the Biafra struggle, it was said has pitched Dokubo and Kanu against each other, as the duo are known leaders at the forefront of the secession campaign.

The monetary issues is tearing both secessionists apart in the agitation for the sovereign state of Biafra — the cause believed to have united the two estranged Nigerians from the country’s south.

Consequent upon the rift between the two war mongers over financial isssues, Dokubo, had earlier in March, announced the formation of the Biafra Customary Government (BCG), with him as the head.

Dokubo had also in the video, accused Kanu of failing to account for some funds donated for the cause for Biafra.

“They are now telling us India, Russia etc. This is how they audit accounts. This is what Biafra will look like under the criminal Nnamdi Kanu.

“They claim that they brought money to Cotonou to give to me — N20 million. We are waiting for them to bring the evidence. They came to Cotonou to meet with me and I hosted them. They did not bring a dime.

“How is that an audited account? Why do Igbo people allow you, a conman, to be conning them? Igbos, you have to rise. He wants to destroy Onyeama. He wants to destroy Ekweremadu. He wants to destroy everybody and the Igbo people are keeping quiet.

“Biafra is your business now, you have no other avenue for gainful income. It is a pity how Igbo people have fallen for this evil, but your time is up,” Dokubo said.

He warned Kanu, that the offence he committed as IPOB leader will be his nemesis, saying: “I am out for you. And I will get you.”

“I just asked that our people be allowed to vote and you sent your dogs. I’ve broken their teeth.

“Nnamdi Kanu, I’m not in your category but for this, I will surely bring you down. I will destroy this evil empire that is working as a hindrance to the restoration of Biafra,” Dokubo said.
