– The group said he has caused so much problem for the region
The Movement for the Actualisation of a Sovereign State Of Biafra (MASSOB) has sent a message to Igbo leaders to be wary of former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.
MASSOB said it has noticed a growing relationship between the former president and some Igbo leaders and said this should stop as Obasanjo was the cause of some of their problems.
It accused the former president of Ignoring Igbo leader, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu when he was alive nor recognise his position as leader of Igbos.

The Punch reports that the pro-Biafra group in a statement signed by Uchenna Madu said Obasanjo caused a lot of problems for Igbos when he was Senate president.
“His current political antics, romance and friendship in Igbo land is suspect and dangerous to the political survival of Ndigbo in Nigeria.
“During his eight year tenure as Nigeria President, he consciously and wilfully created political problems for Ndigbo.
“He initiated several political frustration against Abia, Anambra, Enugu, Imo states during the tenure of Orji Uzor Kalu, Chinwoke Mbadinuju, Chimaraoke Nnamani.
“Obasanjo denied Igbo land infrastructural development, he politically witch haunted our people. He also mesmerised Ndigbo by changing Igbo senators five times in office of Senate president.
“Today Igbo governors of Abia, Ebonyi and Enugu States are celebrating him by inviting him to commissioned projects in their respective states.
“During his eight year rule, he never visited Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu or showed concerns to his position as Igbo leader.”
The group said Obasanjo was working secretly through “some disgruntled Igbo politicians to destabilise the developing cohesion among Igbo leaders”
