Uchenna Madu, the leader of Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), visited the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Madu and his team visited Kanu in Abia state, on Thursday, May 18.
Although the purpose of the meeting has not been disclosed, they are sure to have discussed issues bordering on Biafra.
The visit by Madu was also to congratulate Nnamdi Kanu who was recently released from Kuje Prison.
It is also hinted that the forthcoming Biafra remembrance day was part of the topics on the table.
While the Nnamdi Kanu-led IPOB has declared May 30 as sit-at-home for all Igbo people, mostly those doing business in the Southeastern part of Nigeria, the MASSOB has taken May 22-30 to mark the actualization of Biafra.
The two groups are front liners in the pursuit of the actualization of sovereign state called Biafra.
MASSOB, has stated that 20 countries will be sending their observers to monitor the 17th anniversary celebration of the group billed to hold May 22nd to 30th.
NAIJ.com gathered that MASSOB’s national director of information, Sunny Okereafor, revealed this in Aba, Abia state.
Okereafor noted that some of the foreign observers who he described as friends and partners of MASSOB were being attracted by MASSOB non-violent policy.
He stressed that they would be on ground to monitor the celebrations in any Biafra city of their choice.
He further said that some of the observers will arrive from countries such as Gabon, Germany, United States of America, Netherland, Cuba, Ghana, Benin Republic, Ivory Coast, Tanzania and United Kingdom and urged Biafra people to come out en-masse and celebrate the new Biafra from May 22 to 30.
