The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has scrapped its deputy leadership position.
The development comes just as Uche Mefor who occupied the position willingly resigned recently.
In a Friday statement, the group’s Head of Directorate of State (DOS), China Edoziem, accused Mefor of insubordination and disobedience to constituted authorities in the organisation particularly to the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
“Mefor 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,” Mr Edoziem said.
“The office of the deputy leader of the IPOB is abolished with immediate effect and ceases to be a part of the IPOB leadership structure.
“Henceforth nobody should be referred to as the deputy leader of IPOB. Throughout the history of freedom fighting there is nothing like deputy leader,” he added.
