MASSOB reply Buhari, says agitation for Biafra indestructible

By Obinna Achi, Enugu

Members of the secessionist group, Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB faulted President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement suggesting that the unity of the country is not negotiable.

Reacting to statements credited to the president on Thursday, they argued that the President’s view showed that he has not realized that a new trend of resolving such issues had taken over.

MASSOP leader, Chief Uchenna Madu in a statement on Thursday said the movement totally disagreed with the President, describing his statement as an expression of somebody who still believed in old ways of doing things.

“The President, in inner sense of reasoning, believes that he will easily crush Biafra, maybe with his intimidating tendencies over Igbo governors, National Assembly members, religious/ opinion/ political leaders. MASSOB views the President’s constant negative comments on Biafra consciousness as a sign of jittery.

“As every revolutionary struggle has its own methodology, the current Biafran struggle for actualization and restoration will continue to unfold confusing methods to the President. The involvement of Niger Delta Avengers and other Niger Delta freedom fighters in the Biafra struggle will continue to hunt those opposed to the actualization of Biafra”.

Madu said some of the decisions of the present administration in Nigeria were even assisting and justifying the struggle for the Biafra Republic, adding that the consciousness of Christians in the Southern part and Middle Belt of the country had been reawakened.

He boasted that no man can crush Biafra because, according to him, God, history and humanity were on the side of the agitators.
