The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) on Wednesday, called on Igbo leaders to demand the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of indigenous People of Biafra, who have been detained by the Nigerian government. The group made the call ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari visit to the region on Thursday, September 9, 2021.
In a statement by its National Director of Information, Comrade Edeson Samuel, the group reminded Igbo leaders that Nnamdi Kanu, who represents the aspirations of Ndigbo, has allegedly been subjected to torture for the sake of Ndigbo.
The group charged Igbo leaders to use the visit of the President to revive the lost confidence and hope Ndigbo bestowed on them by telling the truth to Buhari that the Igbos are not being treated as co-citizens in Nigeria.
According to the statement by MASSOB; “The leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) hereby advises the political, traditional, religious and opinion leaders of Igbo land to demand the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from President Muhamadu Buhari during his state visit to Imo and Ebonyi states.
“It is imperative that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is being subjected to inhuman torture at the DSS detention cage because of Ndigbo. “He represents the aspirations of Ndigbo in Nigeria.
“MASSOB advises Igbo political leaders to use the occasion of President Muhamadu Buhari’s visit to revive the lost confidence and hope Ndigbo bestowed on them by telling Buhari that Ndigbo are not being treated as co citizens.
“They must demand for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention. “MASSOB reiterates that what Ndigbo want is Biafra and not Nigeria. We can never deviate from this clamour for independence of Biafra Republic,” the statement concluded.
