A fight between the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Association of Igbo Youth Organisations (AIYO) has left one person dead and many others injured on Sunday at a hideout near Onitsha, Anambra State, new reports say.
According to reports, the MASSOB’s Director of Information, Uchenna Madu said his group was reacting to complaints from members of the public about the criminal activities of AIYO members who were using their camps along Onitsha-Owerri road to torture people.
“MASSOB as the genuine Igbo group genuinely fighting for Ndigbo after bad reports of rape, kidnapping, illegal arrest and detention and armed robberies by a group of miscreants that called themselves AIYO decided to move into their illegal camps where even security agents could not enter. I am talking to you, we have taken over the area and dislodged them,” he said.
“On many occasions, they had kidnapped people including our men, took them to these illegal torture camps where the victims were forced to part with money and other valuables to regain their freedom.”
