MASSOB has also disowned its founder, Chief Ralph Uwazurike, as well as cautioned that it was is not affiliated to any group called Biafra Independent Movement.
The pro-Biafra group says it has no part in any Biafra celebration slated for Monday, May 22,
Mr. Uchenna Madu, who claimed to be the leader of MASSOB, directed their members to shun the May 22 celebration and brace up for the main event slated for May 30, which is Biafra Remembrance Day.
He called on supporters of the movement not to give up as the birth of Biafra was already in sight.
“We have reiterated our solemn oath taking for actualization and restoration of an independent Republic of Biafra,’’ he said in a statement.
“We reassure the people of Biafra that actualization and restoration of Biafra is sacrosanct and sacred.
“Every aspect of Biafra struggle must abhor deceit, self glorification, tribal/religious sentiments and love for mundane things.“
He said that MASSOB declared support for sit at home exercise for all Biafrans on 30th May, 2017 as a mark of respect and honour to our gallant Biafra soldiers and civilians that sacrificed their precious lives for establishment of Biafra during the war of 1967–1970.
