The Uchenna Madu led faction of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has denied the allegation by the Department of State Services, DSS, that some Biafra agitators planned to invade the court and forcefully free their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, saying that MASSOB and IPOB had no such agenda.
MASSOB in a statement issued by the factional leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu described the allegation as “ranting of a confused and drowning people.”
He said: “How can a non-violent and armless organization like IPOB and MASSOB invade a courtroom located on the 3rd floor of the Federal High Court surrounded by heavily armed combined team of Nigeria security agents and modern technological security gadgets.
“MASSOB and IPOB have no such intention, plan or agenda as we know that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and others committed no offence against Nigeria.
“The insistence of the Federal Government to hide the identity of their witnesses against Nnamdi Kanu and others is a sign of cowardice and unsteadiness.
“They have no genuine witnesses now because the contracted ones have been exposed. It remains only the staff of DSS who will appear with Igbo names to create negative impression that Ndigbo are against Nnamdi Kanu.
“FG has shot itself on the leg. For a soft landing, MASSOB advises President Buhari to immediately reach the principal Igbo leaders and release Nnamdi Kanu to them.
“The continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu will bring more devastating diplomatic doom for Nigeria. Biafrans are ready for the trial,” Madu said.
