Coordinator of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Anioma/Ndokwa East region of Delta State, Emeka Okafor was on Wednesday arrested by operatives of the state police command, for allegedly chanting war songs.

The 52-year-old was arrested with three other members of the movement at a location in Omini-Ugboma community, near the Bridge Head in Asaba, the Delta State capital.

Confirming the arrest, Delta State Police Command spokesman, ASP Lucky Uyabeme, said the Command acted on a tip-off to effect the arrest of the MASSOB members.

Uyabame said six Biafran flags were recovered from the suspects, and they were chanting war songs at the time of their arrest.

  • is there any law that forbid any person or persons from chanting songs? please police stop abuse of peoples human right. when there is peace stop invoking war in the name that you are working.

    • They are Boko Haram members and they should be dealt with decisively. We can accept people chanting war song in Nigeria. Let them get it into their nut heads

  • What does the government or police need to investigate in the issue ? There action is an act of sedition and they should be tried on that ground, because I can see that they are trouble makers. Government need to make a scapegoat with hoodlums like this
