Umuahia—AS Nigerians engage themselves in a debate over America’s decision to place Nigeria and its citizens under serious watch on account of the botched bomb attack by a Nigerian citizen, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has thrown its weight behind America, saying its action was in order.

MASSOB meanwhile, claimed that Nigeria as a state is a terror to Biafrans.

“Currently, we are being killed, our shops, investments and establishments are been looted, destroyed and set ablaze while our vehicles are vandalized in the Northern part of Nigeria. The mobile police unit of Nigeria police force scattered all over Biafra land kills at random and engaged in extra-judicial killings.

The presence of ‘Operation Messa’ squad of Nigeria Military like in a war situation in Biafra land is a terror to our people.

“Farouk  Abdulmutallab is just one among (alleged) thousands of conventional and international terrorists of Northern Nigeria origin, who are directly or indirectly controlled, sponsored, supervised, supported and directed by some Islamic religious and traditional leaders, some political leaders and businessmen secretly, with foreign Islamic countries backing them financially and materially,” the group said in a statement by Mr Uchenna Madu, its Director of Information.
