Movement for the Actualization of the State of Biafra, MASSOB has said that members will not stop protesting until the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Director Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has been released.
MASSOB Leader, Uchenna Madu also reportedly accused the DSS of deliberately continuing to detain Nnamdi Kanu five days after a court has ordered his release.
Madu said “The continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu by DSS after both Magistrate, Federal High courts have discharged and acquitted him of all the frivolous charges against him shows that Nigerian judiciary is not independent.
“The independence of the three arms of government is a complete sham, which portrays Nigeria as an undemocratic state.
“It is a sign of frustration on Nigeria because of Nnamdi Kanu, agitators for Biafra represents the very truth Nigeria knows but always avoids to identify with it. I know Nnamdi Kanu. He is a real Biafran, who can never succumb to intimidation, deviate or compromise.
“His illegal detention will worsen the already battered image of Nigeria. MAASOB will never relent in identifying with Nnamdi Kanu.
“We shall continue to press for his release with every legitimate action supported, backed by internationally recognised law, decrees and charters. MASSOB must maintain our non-violent stance, although we have found out that the DSS wants to re-arraign him on fresh trumped-up charges which we will resist.”
