www.odogwublog.com reports that the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra ( MASSOB),  has hailed the ruling of an Abuja High Court granting bail to the detained leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra ( IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

MASSOB in a press release issued yesterday by its Leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu, expressed delight over the ruling, describing it as a good omen for the Biafran project.

The release read in part: "Thousands of MASSOB members are in jubilant celebration over the bail granted to Mazi Nnamdi KANU of IPOB.

"We always identity with true representations of Biafra and genuine struggle for the liberation of the people of Biafra.                       

"  The bail granted to our brother today is a sign of light triumphantly over the darkness. It is a motivational factor that Biafra will always triumph over Nigeria.

"I spent almost four years in different prisons from 2005 to 2009 which includes Suleleja, Keffi and Kuje prisons for same purpose of Biafra and was later released, Nnamdi KANU and others won't be an exceptional. He represent the interest of the people of Biafra, he is not a criminal."     

MASSOB commended the efforts of some prominent Igbo leaders including the new leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in facilitating the release of Kanu.

The pro- Biafra group also hailed the the courage of Gov. Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, and former aviation Minister,  Fani Kayode in standing up with Kanu and the Biafran cause.

"MASSOB commends the efforts of Igbo Governors, Some prominent and eloquent leaders like Mr Peter Obi, Chief Nwodo (Ohaneze PG), Gov Fayose, some Igbo National Assembly members, Nzuko Umunna and other progressive persons for their unflinching efforts in compelling the Federal government in granting Nnamdi KANU bail.                                     

" As the people of Biafra erupted in jubilation all over the world in celebration of triumph of light over darkness, it shows that we are more united in our pursuit for Biafra actualization and restoration irrespective of our different organizations.  We know that freedom can never be achieved on a platter of gold.     

MASSOB however,demanded the release of other pro Biafra detainees in other prisons including those at Onitsha and Awka prisons.

"MASSOB and other pro Biafra groups including IPOB are on the ground ready to welcome and receive our brother, Nnamdi KANU".
