The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has vowed to resist any attempt targeted at arresting Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe over his surety to Nnamdi Kanu.
The group’s threat followed statement by the Shettima-led Arewa Youths Consultative Forum for calling for Abaribe’s arrest for his inability to produce Kanu who apparently jumped bail over a treasonable offence.
MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu in a statement on Tuesday in Awka, Anambra State differentiated Abaribe’s surety to Kanu and that of Ali Senator Ali Ndume to Maima.
The group noted that Abaribe’s standing as surety for kanu was not a personal venture, but a unanimous decision of Ndigbo.
The statement read in part, “AYCF’s stinking vomit against Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe is an expression of sadistic and tribalistic ethnic group in Nigeria.
“The northern youths are always a willing tool of destruction in the hands of their primitive leaders.
“Abaribe’s stand as surety to Nnamdi kanu was totally different from the one Senator Ali Ndume stood for Maina Abdulrasheed.
“Maina was a corrupt criminal that shamelessly looted public fund when he was the chairman of the defunct National Pension Task Team. He laundered money mearnt for aged pensioners. He can never be compared with Nnamdi kanu of IPOB.
“Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe’s standing as surety for Nnamdi kanu was a unanimous decision of Ndigbo, it was not a personal venture.
“The baseless treasonable and felonious court case against Nnamdi kanu is closed because Nigeria government knows it has no evidence against kanu. Any attempt or arrest on Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe will be resisted by Ndigbo.
“MASSOB warns Alhaji Yerima Shettima-led AYCF to stop their systematic and calculated plan to blackmail the personality of Enyinnaya Abaribe.”
