The Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has on Sunday, November 22, cautioned leaders of the Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo against their remarks on the ongoing Biafra agitation.
MASSOB described Ohanaeze’s utterances against the Biafra struggles as selfish and irresponsible, urging them to stop or be prepared to face the wrath of the youths.
The statement reads, “The widely acceptance and consciousness of Biafra can never be thwarted or dislocated by disgruntled Igbo.
“The Anambra State chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo statement against Biafra is selfish and irresponsible. He’s an Igbo saboteur who always would sell his family because of money.
“How can a self-acclaimed Igbo leader openly and shamefully disown and condemn Biafra, the living symbol of Igbo survival?”
“MASSOB still believes that Ohanaeze Ndigbo cannot disown Biafra because the national leadership is still silent on this issue, but if finally it does, the Igbo nation will also disown and expel them from Igbo land.
“MASSOB warns Igbo to stop making open derogatory statements against Biafra or we shall banish them from Igbo land.
“MASSOB shall continue to represent the genuine interest of Ndigbo.”
It would be recalled, the Chairman of Ohanaeze in Anambra State, Dr Chris Eluemunoh, had on Friday, said the agitation for Biafra was a uncalled for, adding that Biafra died in 1970, when the Nigerian civil war ended.
