The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has on Saturday, declared an ‘unalloyed’ allegiance to the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) and other pro-Biafra groups from within that region.
The declaration of allegiance was issued in a statement by the national leader of MASSOB, Comrade Uchenna Madu.
According to the statement, the group said it was happy with the firmness and sincerity with which the NDA was supporting the struggle for Biafra realization.
The statement read: “The consistency, selflessness and pragmatism of these Biafra warriors gladdens our hearts.
“It shows and proves the positiveness and acceptability of Biafra by our brethren across the Niger. It also rubbished the earlier diversionary, cowardice, stupid and negative comments / statements and position of some leaders of Ethnic nationalities of the South South who are brainwashed by Hausa Fulani Yoruba oligarchies against Biafra”.
He continued: “the activities of the current Niger Delta Warriors is a natural confirmation that Biafra stretches towards the gulf of Guinea. The natural inhabitants and indigenous people of these lands are Biafrans by birth but Nigeria by citizens.
“MASSOB has made it open that we want Biafra though we choose non violence approach. We shall also support every genuine, legitimate methodology and approach chosen by any group towards Biafran self determination.
“Because of our non violence approach, the Nigerian security forces have killed thousands of MASSOB members and other groups members since 1999 when the current struggle started.”
“These extra judicial killings of non violent, unarmed Biafra agitators have gone unchecked by Nig Government and international watchdogs against human rights abuses, brutalities, genocides and pogroms including United Nation.
“The Western world seems not to react against the Ethnic cleansing of our people because of economic and diplomatic interest in Biafra natural treasures which they aligned with Nigeria and kept their hypocritical eyes closed against the fate of over 60 millions Biafrans.
“Nigeria and her likes understand the only language of violence. Today, Buhari’s military soldiers are being disgraced, economic power block is being dismantled, diplomatic relations being shattered, his Government in disarray even himself is confused because of the activities of Biafran agitators in the Eastern region.
“Our comrades from Niger Delta who are more United and focused than groups from Igbo based hinterland should not relent as the knees of our oppressors shall bow soon. They will beg Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and others”.
