Anambra - Four people lost their lives in a clash involving members of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and a joint team of security men in Onitsha, Anambra State.
MASSOB claimed that the attack was political because the group decided to stop supporting the ruling party in the state, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, for the governorship elections on Saturday, Punch reports.
A total of 80 people were reported injured in the clash, while 18 vehicles belonging to MASSOB members and traders at the Mgbuka-Obosi, Old Motor Spare Parts Obosi, and 137 motorcycles were allegedly destroyed.
The group accused the Governor Peter Obi-led government of witch-hunting its members and using state resources against them.
