The Movement for the Actualization for the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has condemned the alleged invasion of two catholic churches in Nnewi and Onitsha in Anambra State, by security operatives. The group alleged that 200 people were arrested during the invasion.
MASSOB media officer, Sunny Okereafor, told newsmen in Owerri that the security operatives made up of the police, NSCDC, Army and the Man O’war, invaded St. Michael’s Catholic Church Inewi and Luwanga Catholic Church Onitsha in Anambra State and arrested some worshippers. He said out of the  200, only four were members of MASSOB.
Okereafor accused the Inspector General of Police, the AIG, Zone 9 Umuahia in Abia State and the Imo State commissioner of police for inciting violence in the South-east.
He also alleged that security operatives from the Imo State Police Command had  taken over the house of their leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike.
The MASSOB spokesman advised the security operatives to leave them alone and face security challenges bedevilling the country.
“The operatives should focus their energy on crimes such as kidnapping, armed robbery, rather than chasing non-violent MASSOB all the time,” he said.
Okereafor urged members of the group to remain law abiding. When contacted, the Imo  Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Enwwren, denied the allegation.
He said the state was  witnessing   robust policing.
