The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has revealed that it has finalised plans to drag ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to the International Criminal Court at the Hague.

MASSOB spokesperson, Samuel Edeson said the former President deserves to appear before the court, because of the alleged atrocities he committed against the Igbos in 1970.

Edeson also threatened to make Nigeria ungovernable, if the Federal Government does not allow the Igbos decide by vote, if they want to stay as part of Nigeria.

The MASSOB spokesman also said they are ready to instigate civil obedience in the country, especially, in the South-East, if the government does not yield to their call.

Massive protests broke out in the South-Eastern region of Nigeria and Lagos, following calls for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS).

The Nigerian government charged Kanu to court for treasonable felony.

IPOB and MASSOB have also denied any involvement in the hijacking a merchant ship in the Gulf of Guinea.
