The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has condemned the killing of a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Ekwulobia, Anambra State.

According to reports, one person was killed on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 when Biafra supporters were waiting for their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

The Anambra state police command spokesman has since debunked the reports, saying it is false.

Speaking on the incident, the leader of MASSOB, Comrade Uchenna Madu described the action of the security men as primitive.

He said “This overzealousness of Nigerian army and police against the non-violenct and armless Biafra agitators speaks volume of rejection, subjection, marginalisation and annihilation plan of Nigerian security agencies against the industrious people of Biafra.

“The wicked and violent activities of Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram against the Christian Middle Beltans and people of Biafra have not been challenged by Hausa-Fulani dominated Nigeria security agencies.

“This hypocritical and bias of Nigeria security agencies are being monitored and recorded by the international organisations for human rights abuses for reckoning at the appropriate time.”

The IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu recently said that he will be happy if he is re-arrested, adding that it will hasten the actualisation of Biafra.
