The statement by MASSOB is coming on the heel of reported ongoing dialogue on behalf of the group by some South-South and South-East leaders with the federal government.

The group’s director of information, Edeson Samuel, made their stance known at a press briefing in Enugu, which was also attended by Ugwuoke Ibem Ugwuoke, MASSOB Secretary General.

They insisted that nobody had their permission or that of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to negotiate on their behalf with the federal government.

The group stated that any dialogue regarding Biafra agitation must be lead by Kanu who is presently in the custody of the Department of state services (DSS), Daily Post reports.


The group said:“There is new development; we want to react on the so-called dialogue between Nigeria government and some people who claimed they are representing us.

“We were shocked to learn that some Northern leaders and Senator Godswill Akpabio met and discussed about our agitation.

“These persons that sat in Abuja, even the people from the South-East, we disown them; we don’t know them; before you discus, you must first of all discus with those on the street; we don’t know Akpabio, we don’t know Dozie Ikedife as far as this matter is concerned; Ikedife is not part of what we are doing; he has shown hatred for Nnamdi, so how can he meet with government to discus Nnamdi?”

“We also understand that Ikedife’s Bilie Human Right Initiative has their own agenda, they have firm belief in Nigerian constitution; we, the MASSOB members don’t have belief in Nigeria’s constitution because it is a fraud against our people.

“The MASSOB and other pro-Biafra groups advise Bilie Human Right Initiative to retract their belief in Nigeria constitution because this ties our hand to unknown law against our people.

“For the past one month, we have been protesting peacefully over Nnamdi’s release; if Nigerian government is sincere over dialogue, they must meet with the leaders of MASSOB and the IPOB.

“It is curious that Akpabio, who disowned us, who said that Akwa Ibom is not part of Biafra, now wants to negotiate on our behalf, this is fraud; we are advising the Nigerian government not to take them serious, we shall continue our peaceful and non violent protest.

“We have two simple demands- release Nnamdi Kanu, give us Biafra; we are not agitating for good roads or infrastructure.

“These people that claim to be Igbo leaders are not in control of the masses, we shall soon demand for a referendum, that’s the next step so that the whole world will know that the people are no longer interested in Nigeria.

“Any dialogue with the federal government without Nnamdi Kanu is nonsense; we demand that he should be released and he will lead the dialogue.

“Similarly, there will be a revolution against so-called Igbo leaders who are making negative comments against Biafra.”


Meanwhile, to reign in the south-eastern part of the country.
