The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, (MASSOB) has urged Biafrans to pray for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

The plea was made by MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu via a statement released on Tuesday, November 29.

The statement reads:

“Ndigbo shall not abandon their own son because of individual personal interest. As Nnamdi Kanu and others will appear in court on Dec 1st, MASSOB urge the people of Biafra all over the world to observe praying, fasting and supplication for our brothers and Biafra heroes.”

“MASSOB members will engage in charismatic prayer meeting at MASSOB headquarters, Okwe on Dec 1st. As MASSOB demand for the release of Nnamdi Kanu and others, we shall maintain our non-violence principles.

“Until Igbo leaders understand the efficacies, potencies and political value of MASSOB, IPOB and others, they will never progress politically in Nigeria.

“Today, major Igbo leaders have abandoned Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Nwawuisi and Madubugwu of IPOB, Innocent Orji, Sabastine Amadi, Uchenna Nicholas and 17 others of MASSOB and Benjamin Onwuka and others of BZM because they thought that these men pose threat to their political adventures in Nigeria or economic interest.”
