Following the prison break at the Owerri correctional centre in Imo state few days ago, the leader of the Movement for the actualization of sovereign state of Biafra (MASSOB), Ralph Nwazuruike, has said that he will not condemn Nnamdi Kanu, the leader IPOB or blame his members for what happened at Owerri.
Mr Nwazuruike during an interview with BBC pidgin said it’s too early to lay the blame of the prison attack on IPOB members as the Imo state Governor, Hope Uzodinma has constituted a panel to investigate the attack. He said what happened in Owerri is a security failure and the inspector general of police, Mohammed Adamu, who has since been replaced, ought to resign. He said he used to be one of those who think there is no need for a regional security outfit like Amotekun in the southeast but with what happened in Owerri, it is obvious there is lack of security in the region. He said the swift response of the federal government to what happened in Owerri and their silence to what happened in Ebonyi where herdsmen allegedly killed some people shows the federal government is not treating every regions equally.
On Nnamdi Kanu’s style of agitation, he said people expect him to condemn kanu but he will not. He said though he does not support violence, a bad system of governance will usually give rise to bad people.
