The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has exonerated Biafra agitators from last Sunday’s attack on the convoy of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, representing Anambra South senatorial zone, in which some of the senator’s aides lost their lives.
In a statement yesterday, MASSOB described the attack on Senator Ubah as an assassination attempt and politically motivated.
It advised the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr. Peter Obi, and the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, among other politicians and religious leaders to beef up their security.
MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu, who issued the statement said those listed must redouble and restrategize their security apparati.
The MASSOB leader’s statement read: “This attack is insensitive, barbaric and unwarranted. The political cabals stifling the economy and wealth of Nigeria are not comfortable that a positive change that will abolish their illicit and corrupt means of embezzling the wealth of Nigeria is coming, hence they are sponsoring the political assassination of eloquent and outspoken political leaders who are not in their evil and corrupt wagon.
“The Enugwu Ukwu assassination attack is not only about Senator Ifeanyi Uba but against people-oriented political leaders across the country.”
