The leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has warned the commissioner of police, Abia state to stop creating artificial tension in Abia state.
MASSOB is accusing thne commissioner of creating tension through alleged unguided and insensitive statements over the coming burial of Nnamdi kanu’s parents late traditional ruler of Afaraukwu, HRH Eze Israel Kanu and his wife, Ugoeze Sally Kanu.
In a press release signed by its leader, Uchenna Made, MASSOB condemned the statement of Abia commissioner of police that the police and other security agents will scatter and disrupt the burial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s parents if members of IPOB attends.
“The threat is uncalled for and borne out of cowardice and hunger to satisfy the interest of his Abuja masters that employed him.
“MASSOB wish to remind Mr Okon (Abia state CP) that no amount of his loyalty and self stabbing sacrifices to his Abuja masters will ever earn him goodwill from Abuja.
“The same anti Christian stick they used on our brother, Justice Walter Samuel Onnoghen will still be used on you. The Abia state police boss statement is deceiving and full of inconsequential morale boosting of his personnel and other security agents in Abia state.
“The commissioner of police is being used to create unnecessary security tension in a peaceful Abia state. The people of Afaraukwu community are peace loving.
“We have made it clear that the burial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s parents is not an IPOB or Biafra event. There will be no display or flying of Biafra flags or showcasing of any Biafra insignias. Abia state police boss should go and sleep.
“MASSOB wishes to inform the Nigeria security agencies that the burial ceremony of HRM, Eze Israel Kanu and his wife is not an IPOB or Biafra function, it is purely an Igbo traditional burial of Afaraukwu Umuahia for their late Eze and his wife. The security agencies should stop creating unnecessary and artificial tension in Afaraukwu Umuahia.
“Ndigbo have resolved to accord Nnamdi Kanu’s parents a befitting burial as a profound traditional ruler. Their burial ceremony is not Biafra rally or demonstration. The subjective and molestation of the Nigeria army in Afaraukwu Umuahia and the unguided outburst of Abia state police boss will never deter Ndigbo from the burial of HRH Eze Israel Kanu and his wife.”
