Biafra: MASSOB warns Nigerian govt not to re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu

MASSOB protest

A faction of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, on Sunday warned the federal government that re-arresting pro-Biafran Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, could lead to a crisis unprecedented in the history of the country.
Mr. Kanu, leader of another pro-Biafran group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, was arrested and detained by the federal government for alleged treason in 2015.
He was granted bail earlier this year with some conditions, which include that he must not be seen in a crowd of more than 10 persons and he must not address press conference or interviews, conditions he has serially flouted.
He also backed a one-day seat at home protest by Igbos in the South-east and South-south of the country to press home their demand for a separate Biafran country.
The seat-at-home protest was largely successful especially in the South-east, a situation that heightened the already charged political atmosphere in the country.
Lately, various groups including the Arewa Youth Assembly have called on security agencies to re-arrest Mr. Kanu for inciting statements.
But, MASSOB, in a statement by the factional leader, Uchenna Madu, warned that if Mr Kanu is re-arrested, the country may not recover from the crisis such action will generate.
“MASSOB warns that any attempts or plan to re arrest Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be thoroughly and massively resisted. We can never tolerate it. It is an insult and embarrassment to our inalienable Rights. We shall collapse Nigeria if he is arrested”.
“Now that we know that our consistency and exposure of the hidden truths is dangerously frustrating, disorganising and killing their age long agendas against the people of Biafra, we shall never relent or surrender,” Mr Madu stated.
Earlier in June, PREMIUM TIMES reported how another faction of MASSOB condemned Mr. Kanu’s use of hate speech.
“MASSOB had existed for 18 years without violence, but in 2009, I went to London and opened Radio Biafra and handed it over to Nnamdi Kanu as the director,” another MASSOB leader, Ralph Uwazurike, said.

“Soon afterwards, politicians hijacked him, and he started working for them.

“The radio that was meant to educate our people and advise our people was turned into the source of hate messages, blackmail, intimidation and others.”

    Nonsense!! Is he above the law? Which crisis will be bigger than the civil war Nigeria has already fought? Useless threats. It is about time to call a spade a spade and let chips fall where they may. Who needs Biafra in Nigeria?

    • Riot50000

      He thinks your parents are ANIMALS, and he does not want to share the ZOO with you.

    • Ibu Anyi Danda

      You are a pure Hause Nigga! All Hail Biafra.

  • tino

    All these ranting are nit necessary. The question is, what offence has Nnadi committed? What terrorist arewa youths who calls for killing of igbos. What of fulanis to rape and kill? What of Oba of Lagos that threaten to drown igbos in Lagoon. Nnamdi is a freedom fighter. The thing is that truth hurts. Nigeria is not working and cannot work and people are demanding for referendum to allow people make a choice but the Nigerian govt is not listening. Do the govt wants Ipob to take arms like their Bokoharam brothers before they listen? Lets all support Biafra.

  • Justice Equity

    The federal government must take nnamdi KANU into custody now before things begin to get worst,nnamdi KANU and his group of uncultured bunch of ignoramus are trying to lead igbos into tribulations, nnamdi KANU to me is an agent of destruction masquerading as a freedom fighter, his mission is to lead Igbos into enmity with every tribe and ethnic group in Nigeria.
    Nnamdi KANU is uncultured, uncivilized, haughty and proud. He can’t lead Igbos to any good. His agitation is wooved in lies,vulgar language, propaganda and hatred.
    May God save igbos from this agent of destruction.
    A son who abuses his father, mother and elders is a son of perdition, a son who sees himself as supreme to his father and elders, is a son that bringeth shame, a son who abuses other peoples fathers and elders, is a son that bringeth reproach.
    Nnamdi KANus style of agitation is a horrible shame to be associated with the wise men from the east.shame on him..

    Even when your leader Ralph Uwazuruike, was arrested for months, the heavens did not fall. you better learn to learn, and unlearn thoughtlessness.

  • Julius

    Here we go again with these delusional loud mouth empty threatening people. He will be arrested if and when the government decides to arrest him and nothing will happen just like when you gave Buhari/FGN 30 days ultimatum to release him from the prison or else. He wasn’t released then and what happened…NADA !!

  • dele20

    Why not warning namidiot cow-nu not to go beyond his boundary?

  • dele20

    Why not warning namidiot cow-nu not to be any longer the biafrat misleader?

  • dele20

    The kuje prison is again set ajar for namidiot cow-nu if not desisting from misleading the Biaf-rats

  • Olatubosun

    Kanu has been passing his boundary, so, he will be re arrested

  • Olatubosun

    Kanu has been stepping on the law of the state…… he needs to be punished

  • Olatubosun



    WE ARE COWARDS and can’t stand the Igbo Man.
