A cabal of the Move ment for the Ac tualization of the Sovereign States of Biafra (MASSOB) have issued a 7 day ultimatum to the federal government for the release of its leader Nnamdi Kanu. The Director of Information of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Comrade Uche Madu issued a statement to this effect.
“MASSOB would unleash the potency of non-violence which includes civil disobe dience, civil unrest, non-cooperation, civil /massive boycott as was done during the emancipation struggle of Ghandi of India & Martin Luther King junior”.
“For the sake of Biafra‘s love for our fatherland and the spirit of brotherhood, MASSOB shall continue to identify with genuine and selfless Biafra agitation as showcased in Nnamdi Kanu.
“Only some few disgruntled elements and Abuja errand boys from eastern region are always against Biafra. MASSOB shall hold Igbo governors, National Assembly members, traditional rulers and opinion leaders heavily responsible if Nnamdi Kanu is not released coming week.
“The continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will worsen the already fragile security situation in Nigeria. Factional MASSOB, IPOB and other genuine groups are now ready.”
Biafran leader Nnamdi Kanu was said to have been arrested by the Directorate of State Security upon his arrival to Nigeria from London few weeks ago. Since then, proponents of Biafra have been engaged in different forms of peaceful protests to see that their leader is released.
