Speaking in an interview with The PUNCH, THE National Director of Information of the group, Sunday Okereafor, warned that it would hold the government responsible for the killing in Igbo land.
While admitting that the government has a responsibility to fish out those killing of security operatives, he stated that MASSOB was disturbed that innocent citizens were being killed.
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has lashed out at governors from the southeast region for disowning his organization.
Describing them as hypocrites, Kanu in a statement on Tuesday by the spokesperson of IPOB, Emma Powerful told the governors that they are not speaking the mind of the people.
He added that the governors can’t decide the fate of the people of the region, noting that they have lost touch with reality.

Reacting in a statement issued by the Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to OYC National President, Chukwuemeka Chimerue, the group said the governors are blinded by reality.
