Biafra-groupThe Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, yesterday, pleaded with the Federal Government to release 23 members of the group in detention even as it raised alarm over the antics of its erstwhile leader, Ralph Uwazuruike to take over its headquarters.

The group alleged that Uwazuruike, who it expelled from its fold, was planning to launch an attack to reclaim MASSOB headquarters in Okwe, Onu-Imo Local Government Area of Imo State, in a desperate bid to reassert himself as leader of the pro-Biafra group.

MASSOB warned that it will resist such attack as it appealed to security agencies to come to their aid given its peaceful stance on the agitation for Biafra.

Factional leader of MASSOB, Uchenna Madu, who made the plea on Tuesday while addressing journalists, warned that the group will not fold its arms and watch but rather stamp its foot on the ground to ensure that Uwazuruike and his cohorts do not occupy the pro-Biafra base.

“Uwazuruike is under pressure because he never fought for the Igbo course. That is why we are appealing to security agencies to come to our aid as our demonstration for Biafra is peaceful. We will resist Uwazuruike fire-for-fire if security agencies fail to arrest him.

“We will not fold our arms and watch him (Uwazuruike) take over our headquarters. He has mortgaged our future to politicians”, the MASSOB leader alleged.

Madu also appealed to the Federal Government to release unconditionally, its 23 members that are currently languishing in prisons scattered all over the south-east geopolitical zone.
