The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has blasted the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) for calling for the arrest of Igbo leaders who asked President Muhammadu Buhari to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that the Igbo leaders led by the first republic minister and a republican parliamentarian, Mbazuliki Amechi, appealed to the president to release Kanu from custody.
However, the appeal did not go well with the CNG as the group through a statement called for the arrest of the Igbo leaders for making such a request.
CNG had also asked Buhari to fully prosecute the IPOB leader who is currently facing trial over alleged treason.
In a swift response, MASSOB, in statement on Wednesday, signed by its National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, said the group should be punished for its unguarded utterances.
MASSOB also condemned the illegal military invasion of Umuchite village in Obeagu Odume autonomous community of Aninri LGA last week.
The statement read, “The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of condemned the Coalition of Northern Group and their sponsors on their unguarded and stupid statements against Chief Mbazuruike Amaechi-led Igbo patriotic leaders that visited Major General Mohammadu Buhari in Aso Villa for an interface meeting concerning the detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and agitation clamours for an independent state of Biafra.
“MASSOB views this attack on honorable Igbo leaders as an attack against the Igbo nation. Though the statements of CNG are unpatriotic, parasitic and insensitive, they will never go unpunished.
“MASSOB will always see CNG as a bunch of cowards, charlatans and street boys that is always at the service of Fulani northern oligarchy and their mission of enthroning Islamic fundamentalism in Nigeria.
“They are working for northern-based Islamic terrorist organisations including Fulani herdsmen, Fulani bandits, Boko Haram, ISWAP and President Muhammed Buhari-led Federal Government.
“The Suleiman Abdul led CNG has failed to call for the arrest of Sheik Gummi who has been negotiating, dining and speaking for terrorist criminals and bandits that are killing, kidnapping and causing genocide in northern Nigeria.”
