MASSOB Lauds South-East Governors, Ohanaeze Meeting With Nnamdi Kanu |RN


From Jeff AmechiAgbodo, Onitsha 

The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) under the leadership of comrade Uchenna Madu yesterday commended South-East governors and leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo for meeting with the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, describing it as a new beginning for Ndigbo.

The National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, in a statement, said that it was a welcome development and a new beginning for Ndigbo because according him ‘united we stand and divided we achieve nothing”. The group stressed that it would no longer accept any insult on the Igbo leaders, saying ‘we cannot allow our fathers to be insulted by these Hausa/Fulanis that have no generational value.’

MASSOB also condemned the attack on President of Ohaneze Dr Nnia Nwodo by Arewa group and Chief Ralph Uwazuruike”. The statement read in part: “It is on record that Raph Uwazuruike was expelled from MASSOB on 30th November 2015. It was published in national dailies e.g, The Nation newspaper of Tuesday, Dec 2015 front and page 43 entitled ‘MASSOB sack Uwazuruike”.

Uwazuruike is frustrated. This is the character of a drowning man. He will always look for an excuse to justify his negative action”.

“For Raph Uwazuruike and BIM saying that they do not recognize Ohanaeze Ndigbo and its leadership is laughable and should be disregarded because they have nothing to offer Ndigbo. Raph Uwazuruike is BIM leader. We are not contesting that.

So, he should not be addressed as MASSOB leader because he remains expelled”.

“The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo did not invite Uwazuruike because they know the real Biafra agitators.”       (The Sun)

Biafra: MASSOB Vacates Freedom House

From George Onyejiuwa, Owerri

The factional leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Uchenna Madu, said the group has vacated its headquarters, Freedom House in Okwe, Imo State and closed down all other camps as part of its internal reorganisation for strategic growth.

He also said in the spirit of Biafra brotherhood, the group had forgiven its founder, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike and that he was now free to return to his father’s compound in Okwe which is the headquarters of the pro-Biafra movement.

This was just as the movement noted that Uwazuruike’s expulsion and three years exile from his father’s compound which houses the MASSOB headquarters were enough punishment for trying to derail the Biafra cause.

In a statement by Samuel Edeson, national director of information, yesterday, said MASSOB, under the leadership of Madu, had forgiven its former leader, Uwazuruike.

According to him, the decision to vacate MASSOB headquarters at Okwe and to close down all other camps was taken after the meeting of the national leadership of the movement under Madu. He said the movement would continue with its non-violent agitation until the independent state of Biafra is actualised.

“The national leadership of MASSOB has forgiven Chief Ralph Uwazurike, former leader of the movement who ran away from Okwe on March 15, 2014, and was subsequently expelled from the movement on  November 30, 2015. He is now free to return to his family house in Okwe which incidentally houses MASSOB headquarters.

“We considered  Uwazuruike’s three years exile from his father’s compound as enough punishment for trying to derail the agitation for selfish interest.  MASSOB has handed over Uwazuruike’s atrocities against the people of Biafrans into the hands of  Chukwu Okike Abiama and  Igbo ancestors.”

MASSOB, under the leadership of our leader, Madu, would continue to operate non-violently from our new office, no more camps with respect and regards to other genuine pro-Biafra groups,” Edeson said.

“It is part of our internal reorganisation for strategic growth and positive functions.”

MASSOB wishes to inform Imo State government, security agents and  Okwe,  host  community that starting from March 5, 2017, MASSOB ceases to operate in Okwe and any group of persons or individuals found  within the family compound of Uwazuruike or inside the former MASSOB Freedom House, Okwe, are  not MASSOB members but  criminals.”  (The Sun)
