BF Faction Fabricates MASSOB Letter
It has come to the attention of Biafra Net that a group of persons purporting to speak for MASSOB has fabricated
a letter, which the forgers claim was written by MASSOB's leader. The forgery is being circulated online and it
appears to have been written by Mr. Oguchi Nkwocha who is a member of the Matthew Uzukwu faction of BF (the defunct
The website located at http://massob.biafranet.com was established nearly two years ago before the onset of the
MASSOB leadership crisis. Although BiafraNet has been fully responsible for funding and operating the site, the
site was established with the full cooperation and participation of MASSOB members, including Chief Ralph Uwazuruike,
Barrister Uche Okwukwu (MASSOB's attorney), and the spokesperson for MASSOB in the US, who coordinated the establishment
of the site. Chief Ralph Uwazuruike himself provided much of the content and many of the pictures that appear on
the site. Following the MASSOB leadership crisis, the flow of new content to the site has slowed. It is that crisis
that Mr. Oguchi Nkwocha is exploiting in his fabricated letter.
Whetther it is by phone, e-mail, or other form of writing, the channel of communication between MASSOB and BiafraNet
has always been open and the relationship between MASSOB and BiafraNet has been cordial. That is why we find it
shocking that these impostors led by Mr. Nkwocha are claiming that the leader of MASSOB has asked them to convey
a message about the website that Biafra Net operates for MASSOB..
Since this is not the first time that a statement fabricated by Mr. Oguchi Nkwocha's faction of BF has been falsely
attributed to Chief Uwazuruike or MASSOB, BiafraNet has requested that the leaders of MASSOB contact BiafraNet
directly through telephone and in a letter duly signed by the officers of MASSOB.
To date, no such phone call or letter has come from the officers of MASSOB. Therefore, we caution all Biafrans
to be vigilant to avoid being manipulated by the mean-spirited fraudsters in the Matthew Uzukwu faction of BF.
