The Governors are: Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Willie Obiano of Anambra, Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu, and Rochas Okorocha of Imo State.

Speaking to newsmen, MASSOB National Secretary, Ugwuoke Ibem Ugwuoke said “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 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.

“Igbo governors should stop supporting clampdown and subsequent incarceration of their brothers. We advise them to learn and emulate Yoruba governors like Ayo Fayose.”

The pro-Biafra group also decried the arrest of 10 of its members in Cross-River state by the police.
