The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has warned Nigeria’s former Minister of Defence, Gen. Theophilus Y. Danjuma and Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu to desist from making sarcastic statements against the Igbos and their leadership.
MASSOB leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, in a statement revealed that the group would not play dumb and watch the name of its founder being dragged to the mud in the name of playing politics.
Speaking through his personal Assistant and the Nnewi North Regional Administrator, Emmanuel Omenka said, “he has been insulting Ojukwu, what is the concern of Ojukwu in the conceding of victory to General Mohammadu Buahri (rtd) by President Goodluck Jonathan”.
“If Danjuma and his cohorts did not support Gowon, the war would have been averted”, he declared.
In regard to the statement which was credited to the Oba Rilwan Akiolu of lagos state that Igbos in Lagos would perish in the Lagoon within seven days if they failed to vote for the All Progressive Congress, APC gubernatorial candidate, MASSOB reiterated that the Oba’s threat was that of a dreaming man.
“The threat is null and void and of no effect because the Oba has no such power to threaten Igboman”, he stated.
