Mazi Chris Mocha the Deputy National Director For Information of MASSOB, buttressing Uwauruike’s point said “The UN General Assembly had on Thursday, September 13, 2007, whilst Uwauruike was in detention in Kefi prison in Nassarawa State, adopted a resolution that called for the recognition of the world’s 370 million people’s rights to self-determination and control over their lands and resources.”
