The group was reacting to the reaction of the Ralph Uwazuruike-led Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), which has distanced itself from the NDA.
In a statement issued in Enugu and signed by MASSOB director of Information, Samuel Edeson, the group said “the latest development has further shown and proved to the Biafran people that the man called Ralph Uwazuruike and his associates like Sunny Okoroafor are not existing or clamoring for Biafra.”
It queried: “How can a Biafran person in his or her right senses deny or condemn the Niger Delta Avengers and other genuine Niger Delta groups agitating for Biafra?
“If reformed and only one MASSOB under the leadership of our leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu, is wrong in supporting the Niger Delta Avengers on their activities for Biafra actualization and restoration, why is it that other pro-Biafra groups have not condemned MASSOB?”
It further chided Uwazuruike and Okoroafor for having directly and consciously proved that they were enemies of Ndigbo.
The MASSOB insisted: “This reaction of Ralph Uwazuruike further proved his romance with the Federal Government through DSS to scuttle and sabotage efforts made for independence of Biafra from Nigeria.
“MASSOB wish to remind Biafran people that it’s on record which can never be erased that Ralph Uwazuruike was expelled from MASSOB on 30th November, 2015 at MASSOB headquarters, Okwe for numerous criminal activities, open/shameful political romance with Federal Government, sabotage against genuine Biafran activities, signing of documents for enthronement of one indivisible Nigeria, etc.
“After a week of the expulsion, he quickly formed his new group called Biafra Independent Movement (BIM).
“Uwazuruike is no longer part of MASSOB, including his BIM members. They should stop deceiving themselves by claiming (to be) MASSOB members.
“Biafran people know where they belong.” (The Nation)
