The Movement for the Actualisation of a Sovereign State of Biafra on Tuesday said the mother of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, died of psychological trauma and torture allegedly orchestrated by the Federal Government.
MASSOB, in statement signed by its national Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, said, “The leadership of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra mourns the death of Lolo Sally Okwu Kanu, the mother of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (Leader of IPOB). The announcement of her death came as a shock to MASSOB.
“Lolo Sally Nnenne Okwu Kanu was mother to all Biafrans. Her door of motherhood was always open for all Biafrans and friends of Biafrans. Her simplicity, courageous words, charismatic exhibitions and promotion of cultural values distinguished her from many claimed Igbo socio-political mothers.
“Her death has opened another source of motivation and high determination for Biafra actualisation and restoration. She died for Biafra to live. We shall never succumb or derail on our journey to freedom, constant resolution is our watchword for Biafra. Mama’s death will never weaken our spirit. MASSOB urges Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB and all Biafrans to take solace in the assurance of God Almighty in fulfilling His promise of granting us Biafra.”
