The Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has denied having links with the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).

The denial was made by MASSOB leader, Chief Solomon Chukwu on Thursday, June 16, 2016.

“Avengers are militants. Their philosophy, ideology, concept, mission and vision are quite different from MASSOB’s,” Chukwu told Punch through the group’s National Director of Information, Sunday Okereafor.

The clarification comes days after the group supposedly commended NDA for issuing an ultimatum to some Governors in the South-East to release the Biafra supporters in police custody.

“MASSOB, under the leadership of Comrade Uchenna Madu has reiterated our earlier support and backing of NDA, a group that has shown total commitment, selfless service and spirit of consistency to Biafran struggle for actualisation and restoration,” MASSOB National Secretary, Ugwuoke Ibem Ugwuoke said.

“MASSOB hails their demands for the unconditional release of all pro-Biafra agitators detained across South Eastern states. Governors of the South-East must release all Biafra agitators detained in their respective states now,” he added.

Chukwu however said that Uche Madu is not a valid leader of MASSOB.
