Normalcy may be returning to the troubled group, Movement for the Actu­alisation of the Sovereign States of Biafra (MAS­SOB) as the faction led by comrade Uchenna Madu after its National Executive Council meet­ing at the weekend at the original headquqrters of MASSOB at Okwe in Onuimo Local Govern­ment Area of Imo State, decided to forgive its Founder, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike and re­turn the building which served as the headquar­ters of the group to him.

According to a press statement issued by the group’s National Direc­tor of Information, Sam­uel Edeson, it stated that MASSOB has equally closed all camps of the group because some people it described as disgruntled elements use the venues to perpetrate criminal activities.

“We refuse to allow the platform reformed MASSOB under the leadership of Comrade Uchenna Madu to be used for breeding anti-social vices that can cause breakdown of law and public disturbanc­es”, part of the statement reads.

Continuing the state­ment reads, “We will never allow drug ped­dling and criminal act flourish in our estab­lishments or associate our existence with anti-social vices.

That in the spirit of Igbo cultural values, MASSOB wish­es to inform Ndigbo and Biafrans in general that no descent organ­isation with the peoples mandate flourish in an atmosphere of crimi­nalities, drug peddling, lost focus and sabotage.

That in the spirit of Biafran brotherhood MASSOB has con­sidered forgiving the leader of BIM, Ralph Uwazuruike (former MASSOB leader) who ran away from Okwe on March 15, 2014 and his subsequent expul­sion on 30th Nov. 2015 to return to his family house, Okwe which in­cidentally houses MAS­SOB headquarters.”

The statement fur­ther noted that Uwa­zuruike’s three-year exile from his family compound is enough punishment. While pledging to continue the struggle without violence under Madu, the group however, announced the opera­tion of a new MASSOB secretariat devoid of camps just as it wel­comes other pro Biafra groups.
