The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has disclosed its plan to embark on a massive protest on Monday January, 18 over the elongated detention of Nnamdi Kanu despite a Court Order that mandated his release.

The group made the threat in a communique after its national executive officers’ meeting, at MASSOB headquarters, Okwe Onuimo Local Government Area of Imo State.

In a communique signed by Comrade Samuel Edeson and Comrade Ibem Ugwuok Ibem, the National Director of Information and the National Secretary of the group, respectively, stated that, “MASSOB after series of public protest, demonstrations, civil disobedience and stay at home protest against the continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by Nigerian Government through the DSS and the non-compliance of Buhari led administration to obey three different competent court orders for Nnamdi Kanu’s release, demands that Nnamdi Kanu must be released now or more diplomatic, image, and political damages will befall the already battered Nigeria’s image with massive, self-determined and non-violence worldwide Biafran demonstration/protest including non co-operation and civil disobedience”.

“That MASSOB directs all our members at home and in Diaspora to prepare for a massive demonstration, protest and a civil disobedience against the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu (IPOB Leader) starting from Monday 18th January 2016″.

“MASSOB also directs former members in Ralph Uwazurike’s BIM to join and participate in the non violent world wide demonstration against Nnamdi Kanu’s continued detention as a mark of Love and respect for Biafra”.

“That MASSOB condemned the statement of Bishop Chukwuma of Enugu diocese of Anglican Church that Ndi Igbo don’t need Biafra and that our demonstrations are not for Biafra. MASSOB and IPOB are not on the street demonstrating against bad roads or lack of federal presence in eastern region or non-appointment of Igbos in key federal Government positions in Buhari led administration or against Igbo marginalization”.

“We are committedly, consistently and uncompromisely agitating for an independent state of Biafra from Nigeria. Biafra is the answer to the numerous subjective slavery Nigeria subjected Ndi Igbo into ranging from political, Economical, Academic, Religious, Cultural and Social slavery.”

“Today in Nigeria, true nationhood has remained stillborn. Peace, justice and equity has remained elusive to Nigeria which still remains in perpetual strife and increasing crises since her independence”.

“These undeniable realities are the reasons the Nigerian State is afraid of Biafra which represents the truth they can not legitimately counter. Biafra speaks of the truth Nigeria know they are guilty of, so out of weakness, jittery and fear Nigeria resort to repressions, persecutions and detention of Biafran agitators”.

“On Dr. Chris Eluemunoh, who claimed Chairman of state president of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo and his demand from Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu is against our ethics and clamor. MASSOB and IPOB don’t know Eluemunoh as an Igbo Leader with Igbo interest, this man is an agent of distraction working for Nigerian Government who has paid him more than Twenty Million Naira to make several negative press statement against us during the early days of our demonstration”.

“He is not speaking the mind of Ohaneze Leadership as there is no office in Ohaneze as Chairman of State President. Ndiigbo should be wary of people like Dr. Chris Eluemunoh who are wolves in sheep clothing. Nnamdi Kanu will be released and true Igbo Leaders, MASSOB and IPOB Leaders will be on ground to receive him.”
