Kanu was released from Kuje Prison on Friday, April 28, 2017, after meeting his bail conditions.

According to MASSOB, the IPOB leader’s release is a triumph of light over darkness.

Speaking to Vanguard, the groups’ leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu said “His release has opened a new dimension to Biafra struggle which must continue to be anchored on non violence, mutual understanding and unity of purpose.

“As Nnamdi Kanu regained freedom, MASSOB will continue with other progressive groups and individuals to press further for the release of other pro Biafra detainees across Nigeria prisons.

“MASSOB as the most prominent pro Biafra group that supports Mazi Nnamdi Kanu believe that there are credible Igbo senators and Jewish religious leaders who can stand for Nnamdi Kanu.

“Standing for Nnamdi Kanu means standing Ndigbo because we still have credible senators which has been shown on Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe who can never be intimidated or subjected to cowardice because of the conditions of the bail granted to Nnamdi Kanu.”

He also said “The bail conditions established against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Federal government of Nigeria is a soft landing subtly given to themselves to ease their shame.

“MASSOB salutes and hails the oneness of unifying forces of Igbo senators led by Ike Ekweremadu and Enyinnaya Abaribe with the back up of Igbo Governors and other prominent Nigerians in their swift response in perfecting the bail conditions of our brother, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”

Also, the former Governor of Anabra state has commended Buhari on Nnamdi Kanu’s release, adding that the President listened to the voice of reason.
