The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Thursday, said it was not involved in any brawl with members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, over its call for a sit-at-home on Friday, September 14.
The denial came after one Kenneth Okwudili, who reportedly spoke for Nsukka zone (Enugu North) of MASSOB, had distanced the group from the IPOB’s order.
However, the Enugu State coordinator of MASSOB, Comrade Dan Onyebuchi, in a statement maintained that it had no such person as spokesman.
Onyebuchi said, “MASSOB authoritatively wishes to clear the deceiving statements that we have Kenneth Okwudili in Nsukka as MASSOB zonal coordinator. Such a person does not speak for MASSOB unless he belongs to another group, which is not MASSOB.
“MASSOB under the leadership of Comrade Uchenna Madu is not against the one-year remembrance of the invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s family house by the Nigeria military men.
“We view every programme or activity on Biafra as part of refreshing and revival of Biafra Actualization and restoration.”
He added that, “MASSOB is more concerned and deeply involved in visitations, consultations and unification of all pro-Biafra groups under one coalition and revival of the brotherhood consciousness among the numerous ethnic nationalities that make up the Republic of Biafra.
“As part of the anniversary celebration of our 19 years of establishment, MASSOB resolved to embark on prayers, supplications and sober reflections on Biafra actualization and restoration.
“We are more resolute and determined for the actualization and restoration of Biafra in initiating more diplomatic and internationally recognized steps than involving ourselves in frivolous activities that can’t restore Biafra.”
