Unwanted Facebook/Messenger group

Some time ago I got an invitation from one of my friends to join a facebook group. As usual I ignored this invitation and did nothing about it.

A few days later I got a messenger message from the friend on this group. And since then am getting messages from various members of the group.

I am not joined to this group and not following it either.

My question is; how is it possible that without being a member of this group I get messenger messages from the group?

I even cannot find a way to disconnect from the group either in messenger or on facebook.

I would like do do this on my own and not by asking the group admin a favour.

You may have been invited to join the group. That has an association to the group, even if you didn't join it.
So now when the group puts out public postings, FB is sending them to you as things you might be interested in. Just click on the dots to the top right of the post and select that you are interested.

We are not talking about facebook posts. We are talking about Messenger. Where people post messages in the group messenger.

Oh - If it's Messenger Group chat, you can simply leave the group.

Yes, those are the three dots I was talking about when I mentioned that before the person you gave all the points to.

You said top-right of the post which is different. And did not help at all. I posted follow ups but you did not respond.

The solution which effectively worked gets the points.
