A seven day ultimatum has been issued to the Federal Government by a splinter group of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign States of Biafra (MASSOB) over the release of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
A statement released by the Director of Information, of the splinter group, Comrade Uche Madu, handing down the ultimatum while noting that if its demand was not met then it would deploy civil protests similar to the kind used during the emancipation struggle of Ghandi of India and Martin Luther King Jr. to cripple Nigeria.
MASSOB’s action according to Madu will be sequel to the nationwide protest embarked on by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Friday March 3rd, demanding the release of Kanu and pledged full support to the protest by the IPOB, stressing that they would not relent till their agitation is actualised.

“MASSOB will unleash the potency of non-violence which includes civil disobedience, civil unrest, non-cooperation, civil/massive boycott as was done during the emancipation struggle of Ghandi of India & Martin Luther King junior”, the MASSOB Information Director said.
Contuning, Madu also warned that his group would hold the Igbo governors and senators to account, if Kanu is not released.
“For the sake of Biafra’s love for our fatherland and the spirit of brotherhood, MASSOB shall continue to identify with genuine and selfless Biafra agitation as showcased in Nnamdi Kanu.
“Only some few disgruntled elements and Abuja errand boys from eastern region are always against Biafra. MASSOB shall hold Igbo governors, National Assembly members, traditional rulers and opinion leaders heavily responsible if Nnamdi Kanu is not released coming week.
“The continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will worsen the already fragile security situation in Nigeria. Factional MASSOB, IPOB and other genuine groups are now ready,” Madu stated.
