Leader of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, disclosed that the Director of Radio Biafra and Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, who was arrested on Saturday, by the Department of State Services (DSS), does not belong to the movement.
Uwazuruike spoke through his Assistant Director of Information, Sunday Okereafor, in Owerri, the Imo State capital, described Kanu as a rebel who had long been expelled by MASSOB for inciting violence among members.
“Kanu’s arrest has nothing to do with the struggle for a sovereign state of Biafra,” the MASSOB leader stated.
He added that Kanu broke the group’s non-violence approach and was summarily dismissed.
Uwazuruike, however, dismissed the allegation that MASSOB was behind the arrest of the Biafra Radio boss, adding that the movement cannot meddle into such unnecessary matters.
