The popular human right activist, Senator Shehu Sani has indirectly reacted to the massive support being giving to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Senator Sani did this by wandering why Chief Ralph Uwazurike, the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), did not get good support from people when he was being persecuted by the previous Nigerian governments. Sani stated this on his Facebook page on Friday, July 16th 2021.
According to him, "Ralph Uwazuruike the leader of MASSOB suffered many arrests, detention and persecution over the years in the hands of the previous governments. He never enjoyed much support or solidarity. Was it because you don’t like his method of struggle or was it because you like that Government that persecuted him? Answer me now now."
From all indication, it is understood that Alhaji Sani was referring to the type of support that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been getting since his arrest was made public early this month. A careful observation would show that many Igbo leaders have stated that they have interest in Mazi Kanu's case.
But as we all know, it was Chief Uwazuruike that started this agitation during Obasanjo's regime. And when he started it, he was arrested and jailed many times. By that time, people were just looking at him without offering serious assistance.
So now, Mr. Sani wants to know if it was because people did not like Uwazuruike's method, or whether it was because they liked the government that persecuted the man. Our dear senator said that the answer is very urgent. What do you have to tell him? What do you think that makes Mazi Kanu to get this massive support?
