Former deputy leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), Uche Mefor says he still remain a strong member of the group despite being sacked as the deputy to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Mefor who described allegations against him as propaganda, insisted that he remains a member of the group and urge members of the group to shun propaganda.
“Did anybody told you that I have resigned from IPOB, of course I’m still a member and you should not listen to propaganda,” Mefor said according to Daily Sun.
IPOB had, in a memo by the Head of Directorate of IPOB, Chika Edoziem, accused its deputy of insubordination, gross misconduct and indiscipline.
According to the memo, Mefor was instructed by Kanu to be attending Unit meetings of the group in United Kingdom as well paying monthly dues like every other members, but he disobeyed, giving the excuse that as the deputy, he is entitled to some privileges as Kanu.
As if that was not enough, the memo further explained, he sacked the National coordinator of IPOB in Uk, which the group has noted that he has no right to do even without informing Kanu.
Edoziem added that the UK coordinator was later sacked by Mefor but Kanu rejected his sack and rather asked him to serve the suspension pronounced on him by the deputy.
This singular act triggered the present rivalry between Mefor and his boss . He transferred the aggression on Kanu and other members of the group by writing to the British Home Office with the objective to ruin and nullify every asylum chances of IPOB asylum seekers in Uk.
The said letter written by Mefor according to Edoziem has made it impossible for IPOB members in UK to receive favourable hearing at the tribunals.
Besides flagrant disobedience , Edoziem said that Mefor on many occasions have confronted Kanu, thereby exhibiting gross misconduct and indiscipline.
Following these sins committed by Mefor, he has now been expelled as an IPOB member while his position according to Edoziem has been abolished by the leader of the group, Kanu.
