From EMMANUEL UZOR, Onitsha
The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) yesterday threatened to drag Anambra State Police Command before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) over alleged killing of their members.
Reacting to the claims by the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Balla Nasarawa that they never arrested MASSOB members, the Awka North Regional Administrator, Mr. Tony Nwodo said the organisation would never go back in its resolve to unravel the circumstances behind the whereabouts of its members. Mr. Nwodo, insisted that most of the corpses found floating in Ezu River were MASSOB members, adding that they made their statement after proper investigations.
“MASSOB didn’t just wake up and started shouting that their members were among the 30 dead bodies in Ezu River, we conducted our investigations and all pointed at the same place, especially SARS knew about the whereabouts of our members and we wish to tell them that we are heading to Internal Court of Justice,” he said.
He further described the incident as a neo-genocide and called on the members of the organisation to remain calm, adding that MASSOB, under the leadership of Chief Ralph Uwazuruike would continue to pursue Igbo liberation without any form of violence.
