The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has refuted and debunked reports that it is planning to attack the residence of Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
There had been widespread reports that MASSOB was planning to attack Kanu’s Country home at Isiama AfaraUkwu, Umuahia, Abia State.
MASSOB zonal leader, Abia Central, Felix Ezekwem while speaking with journalists on Tuesday said the organization was a non-violent one.
He said; MASSOB has restrained itself from acts of violence, despite the attack and arrest of its members in some states of the country.
“Why would anybody associate MASSOB with a purported plot to attack Nnamdi Kanu’s residence?, We are not quarreling with any individual or group, our preoccupation is the struggle for the actualization of an independent state of Biafra. The struggle is our life.
“Since Chief Ralph Uwazuruike founded MASSOB in 1999, it has been a non-violent organization; nobody has ever associated us with violence. The celebration of our anniversary on May 22 was not violent. If MASSOB was a violent organization, we would not have expelled some of our former leading members who were associated with violence.
“We urge the purveyors of such wicked information to look elsewhere. We are used to such antics of the enemy; it has been their style to try to distract us from the struggle. MASSOB refuses to be distracted.”
