MASSOB Condemns Alleged Military Invasion Of Kanu’s Home
Movement for the Actualization of a Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has condemned an alleged military invasion of the home of Eze Israel Kanu, the father of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement made available in Awka, Anambra State, on Monday by MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Samuel Edeson, the group described the attack as primitive and cowardly.
The group said no amount of such intimidation would stop Biafra agitators from continuing with the struggle, adding that President Buhari “cannot destroy the Biafra consciousness.”
It wondered why the army would continue to unleash such “primitive and brutal attack” against nonviolent Biafra agitators. Edeson described the act as, “Signs of jittery, cowardice and Buhari’s government frustration on the eloquent consciousness and realities of Biafra freedom which is being appreciated and acknowledged by international communities” Kanu’s family had on Sunday raised the alarm that soldiers invaded their compound again.
Kanu’ younger brother, Emmanuel Kanu, alleged that the soldiers invaded their home and carted away some household items.
He said the soldiers took away some items like television, generating sets, clothes among other belongings of the family.
