ONITSHA – As the dreaded Boko Haram sects continues to massacre innocent Nigerians in the North Eastern part of the country, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, yesterday , for the second time warned Igbo resident there to return home or remain in the north at their own peril
Sounding this note of warning in Onitsha, Anambra State, the MASSOB National Red Cross Chairman, Engr. Osondu Okwaraeke recalled that prior to the peak of the killings, the MASSOB leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike had urged Igbo resident in the volatile area of the north to return home, adding that wazuruike even went as far as providing transport and other logistics to them for easier evacuation.
According to him, “so, no sympathy for victims of Boko Haram because a stitch in time saves nine”.
Commending Uwazuruike for the assistance, Okwaraeke also recalled that Uwazuruike, as a true Igbo leader had equally donated materials and food items to 2012 flood victims at Aguleri, including drugs, shelter, food, water and security.
He emphasized that Uwazurike had specifically sent about 200 luxury buses to our people in the north to bring them back because of the killing of people by the terrorists, yet many of them did not return and some of those who returned, later went back to the north, thinking that the war had ended.
He therefore called on the United Nations, Catholic Pontiff, Israel and other world leaders to come to the rescue of MASSOB to help actualize Biafra Republic.
Also contributing, the MASSOB Director of Sanitation in Ekwusigo Region, Chief Emma Dinyelu urged all members to ensure the cleanliness of their regions on 29 May 2014, (Biafra Heroes’) Day celebrations which is scheduled for May 30, 2014, adding that Biafra is a clean nation and as such should be kept clean always.
