Kano blast: MASSOB warns against reprisal attack

20 March 2013, 16:01

Owerri -  Ralph Uwazuruike, leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), on Wednesday urged northerners in Imo not to entertain any fear of reprisal attacks.

Uwazuruike reacted to rumours that northerners in the state would be attacked in retaliation for Monday’s bombing in Sabo-Gari, Kano.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria in Owerri that it was wrong for anyone to kill an innocent northerner residing in the state because many of the victims of the bombing were Igbo.

He added that the MASSOB group in the state would join security agencies to arrest anyone who attacked northerners on the issue.

He said that the bombing was meant to arouse the anger of the Igbo to fight back in other to disrupt President Jonathan’s administration.

He pledged to support the president’s administration, adding that no amount of temptation would make him instigate problems that could lead to Jonathan’s failure.

The MASSOB leader warned the public that any attack on northerners in Imo was an attack on innocent persons that had no part in the bombing.
