MASSOB backs Niger Delta Avengers on their ultimatum

15 June 2016, 06:44

Abuja - The Movemeent for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has backed militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), on an ultimatum issued by them to governors of the South-East region, Bayelsa and Delta States.

According to a Naij report, NDA issued a final warning to seven governors on Monday, threatening that they will face the full wrath of the militant group should pro-Biafra supporters across the region be released from detention.

MASSOB has since praised NDA over its statement, describing the group as exhibiting "commitment, selfless service and spirit of consistency to Biafran struggle for actualization."

"MASSOB hails their demands for the unconditional release of all pro-Biafra agitators detained across South Eastern states. Governors of the South-East must release all Biafra agitators detained in their respective states now," said MASSOB national secretary Ugwuoke Ibem Ugwuoke in a statement.

The group has also called on governors Rochas Okorocha and Willie Obiano to free pro-Biafra agitators being held since 2007 and 2013, respectively.

"MASSOB is lamenting the plight of 22 members detained in Awka and Onitsha prisons since April 2007 and that of 13 members of the Biafra Zionist Movement detained in Enugu prisons since the last two years on frivolous charges of treasonable felony and all IPOB and BIM members detained across Biafraland."
