ABAKALIKIâ€” THE Movement for Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has asked President Goodluck Jonathan to direct Imo State office of the State Security Service, SSS, to release the three utility vehicles and a siren motorbike confiscated by the agency from the country home of the groupâ€™s leader, Ralph Uwazuruike, since August 2005.
MASSOB alleged that the vehicles were taken away when Uwazurike was arrested by the security operatives and imprisoned in Abuja.
Deputy Director of MASSOB, Chris Mocha, who gave the charge at Amasiri, Ebonyi State, weekend, when the group held its convention for the state chapter, said Uwazurikeâ€™s cars still being held by Imo State office of the State Security Service was wrong, unconstitutional and a violation of Uwazurikeâ€™s fundamental human rights to own properties as a citizen of Nigeria.
Mocha argued that the security operatives have no justification to confiscate Uwazurikeâ€™s assets since, according to him, the MASSOB leader is not under investigation and has not been convicted by any court of law in Nigeria.
