The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has reportedly barred the former governor of Enugu state, Okwesilieze Nwodo and the former minister of Labour/Productivity, Emeka Wogu, from stepping foot on Igbo land.

According to Vanguard, the two were prohibited over their anti-Biafra position and their recent alliance with the APC.

Report said Nwodo, a former national chairman of the PDP, and Wogu had on Sunday, April 10, defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) at a meeting of the party's south-east geopolitical zone.

At the meeting, while receiving the defectors, the national vice-chairman and convener of the meeting, Emma Eneukwu called of MASSOB to abandon the Biafra struggle and join in building a united Nigeria.

“We call on the groups agitating for separation from a united Nigeria, particularly, the IPOB and MASSOB to re-think and abandon the idea and join the other tribes in building a formidable united Nigeria where all Nigerians will be equally treated in line with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Eneukwu said.
