Chidiebube Okeoma, Owerri
The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra on Monday said it parted ways with its founder , Ralph Uwazuruike , because of his deceit .
MASSOB in a statement by its National Director of Information , Edeson Samuel , said its leader , Uchenna Madu , did not meet with Uwazuruike for a truce as speculated in the media .
The statement said , “The leadership of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has denied ever having any direct or physical meeting with Ralph Uwazuruike .
Our leader , Uchenna Madu , has never called , sent text or chatted with Ralph Uwazuruike directly or through someone ’s phone since 2014 that MASSOB separated from him . “ MASSOB received the headline news of a national newspaper that our leader is begging or appealing for forgiveness from Ralph Uwazuruike with shock .
“The executive officials of MASSOB under the leadership of Uchenna Madu are aware that Colman Emejuru ( Ikemba Ndigbo ) , a selfless pro- Biafra activist , called our leader for a solidarity meeting which was scheduled for Enugu two weeks ago .
“His primary message to our leader and his executive officials is that he personally initiated a peace and harmonisation move to unite Ralph Uwazuruike , Nnamdi Kanu and Uchenna Madu for the sole purpose of marching forces together in order to enable a quicker restoration of Biafra .
“He told us that Ralph Uwazuruike was aware of his meeting with us and that he , Uwazuruike was equally happy for the peace and harmonisation meeting . The peace meeting was postponed and it has not yet reopened .”
