Speaking to newsmen in Asaba, zonal leader of MASSOB in Delta North, Mr Chinedu Amaifeobu, said MASSOB was not a violent group and condemned the acts of violence being perpetrated by the IPOB.

Amaifeobu said: “MASSOB is not in support of the killings and destruction of property. We are not against any group in Iboland but not to the extent of killing ‎innocent people and destroying property. ”

Disclosing that there was no faction in MASSOB as allegedly being speculated by one Uchena Nmadu, he said Mr Raphael Nwazilike remain the founder and leader of the group worldwide.

Alleging that the said Uchena Nmadu was sacked from MASSOB since last year for misconduct, he alleged IPOB and Uchena Nmadu and his group were the ones terrorizing Onitsha.

Insisting that MASSOB has offices in all parts of the Biafra zone, he held that MASSOB under the leadership of Nwazilike was committed to the Biafra struggle.
