Biafra bigger than Kanu- MASSOB

27 April 2016, 18:44

Owerri -  The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biatra, MASSOB has said that Biafra is bigger, wider, taller, than anybody including Nnamdi Kanu

Thegroup also called on relevant stakeholders in the struggle to concentrate their energies and connections towards the release of Nnamdi Kanu from detention, instead of steering up controversies that would betray the collective interest of the Igbo nation.

The group in a statement issued in Abakaliki, by National Director of Information, MASSOB, Samuel Edeson stressed on the impact of “uniting our forces together for greater actualization of Biafra”

The statement read in part: “We should concentrate our energies, synergies, diplomacies, connections, affiliations and strengths on the release of Nnamdi Kanu, our brother, a major arrowhead of new Biafra struggle and other possible ways of uniting our forces together for greater actualization of Biafra.

“MASSOB reaction is borne out of regards and respect we have for IPOB as a stakeholder in Biafra project, it was unfortunate that unguided & amateur statements were set against the person of our leader. “Biafra is bigger, wider, taller, deeper & fatter than anybody including Nnamdi Kanu, Ralph Uwazuruike, Uchenna Madu, Dozie Ikedife & others.

Biafra interest is also bigger than groups or personal interest. “Until we start building serious synergies and form a common Central front among the genuine and selfless Biafran groups, Biafra actualization may take longer period.

“MASSOB expresses surprise on the negative reactions and insinuation of some leaders of IPOB over the comments of our Leader concerning public outburst of Supreme Council of Elders and IPOB. “It was very unfortunate that our Leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu was misunderstood by some people who had alleged and insinuated sabotage by Uchenna Madu.

“We’re not deterred or disturbed by the misinformation of some media group or express allegations by some people because clear conscience fears no false allegations, Uchenna Madu can never sabotage or betray Biafra which he has suffered most, MASSOB understand that great heroes must be criticized even they are innocent unless they are indicted.

“We have discovered that Nigeria government and some people both inside and outside the Biafran struggle are not comfortable with joint forces of MASSOB and IPOB.

“Leadership is not telling people what to do but showing and leading by example, with this assertion, Nnamdi Kanu has proved his authentic leadership of IPOB which MASSOB never denied”.
