Two members of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, (MAS­SOB) have died in Onit­sha, Anambra State in two separate incidents.

In one of the incidents, two policemen attached to Okpoko Police Divi­sion Onitsha sustained injuries.

In another bloody clash, another MASSOB member reportedly died after he was beaten to coma at Edeh Road area of the commercial city by a rival group.

An eyewitness told Daily Sun that trouble started when one of the late MASSOB members resisted arrest by the two policemen after a woman lodged an assault report against him.
