Enugu Gov House Attack: MASSOB Fire Back At Police Commissioner
Responding to the allegations that they launched the attack on the Enugu Government House, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) claimed the Enugu State Police Command masterminded the action.
It would be recalled that the Commissioner of Police in Enugu State, Mr. Abubakar Adamu Mohammed yesterday stated that MASSOB members were behind the mentioned attack.
The group didn't wait long to reply, as they said on Tuesday:
"The police allegations were baseless, it is an act of cowardice, and their intention is to tarnish our good, respected and acceptable image in Igbo land... The C. P. wants to create a negative impression that MASSOB is at war with Government. He wants the Federal Government and the international communities to see MASSOB as a dissident group, to equal MASSOB with BOKO HARAM."
According to the statement, their members were not involved in the actions, however, some politically sponsored persons that attached the name of Biafra to themselves can carry Biafra identities to bring confusion.
