MASSOB claims the bodies found floating in Ezu river were those of their detained members killed by police

The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) released a press statement yesterday claiming that some of bodies found floating in the Ezu River at Amansea community, Awka North LGA of Anambra State on Saturday 19th of January (read the story HERE), were those of their members who were in police custody.

According to MASSOB Director of Information, Comrade Uchenna Madu, their members killed and dumped in the river were; Basil Ogbu, Michael Ogwa, Sunday Omogo, Philip Nwankpa, Eze Ndubisi, Ebuka Eze, Obinna Ofor, Joseph Udoh, and Uchechukwu Ejiofor.

Read part of the statement after the cut...



“MASSOB, with a deep sense of grief and sorrow, wishes to inform Mr. Ban Ki Moon (UN Secretary General), President Goodluck Jonathan, US President Barack Obama, United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC), and Amnesty International about the gruesome murder of MASSOB members by the Special Anti-Robbery Squared (SARS) of Nigeria Police Force, Awkuzu, Anambra State.”
“We got information from an insider at SARS headquarters, Awkuzu, that armless MASSOB members detained at SARS were secretly killed alongside other robbery suspects.”
Madu said the men were arrested at MASSOB’s security office in Onitsha on the 9th of November 2012, by a combined team of Nigerian security agents - Army, Police and SSS - and were later handed over to SARS’ headquarters in Awkuzu, Anambra State, where they were detained. He alleged that the men were never released, were never charged to court and were later secretly executed alongside other criminals and dumped in the river.

Reacting to the claims, the Anambra State police command said through its spokesman that the outcome of the autopsy on the corpses would tell whether the claims by MASSOB were true or false..

Se let's wait for the result...

    I wish to agree on this, why? It will be recalled till now no single family has claimed ownership of those dead bodies why, because they MUST have been long detained in police cells and their family members have forgoten them by now still thinking that they are still in detention. If this be so, why has the so called government not kill those of boko haram? I wish to declare my interest to join MASSOB! Biafra I Stand!!!!!!

    this is gross irresponsibility that an organization that claims to want to lead Ndi Igbo to Biafra Republic would have 40 members missing and only announce to the world after bodies kept floating in Anambra river, can MASSOB also provide us with names and photographs of the late members so human right activists would call for justice, if MASSOB leadership are making claims for propaganda purposes, they had better realize in 2013 2 + 2 is never going to be 22.

    Considering the track record of Nigerian Police, one can't help suspecting them.
    Though a government that can't explain the appearance of such a number of dead bodies lacks control and is irresponsible.

    Genocide in our very own eyes.
    i have one question tot he killers of this young men,
    your aim is to take them off eath,
    yes accomplished, what is your gain? & do you think about life after death? death is inevitable and if you will still die which is def, imagine if life is the other way round? death world highly politicalized like earth, the people you sent off earth now rules there, my friend nigeria police ur all coming there.

    What is your future like,think like human not like Robots. you have blood flowing in your vain, the worst type of terrorist is ur fellow citizen. i can tell you know where your leading the country into. nuclear battle.

    Na wah o, why do you need an autopsy? Autopsy is supposed to tell you the cause of death. The issue here is to determine if d dead pple were ever in police custody and if they were, the police shld explain how a detained suspect transformed from a healthy prisoner to a floating corpse. You don't need autopsy to explain that.

    @Adieu YourVillage..please read again and try to understand the claim. Their members were never missing.They were detained and secretly killed ALONGSIDE other prisoners.(.The meaning of that sentence is that all 40 bodies were not their members.)
    If you are a bit logical and sincere to yourself, you would know that there's 50-50 probability that this could be true.
