As the tension caused by the activities of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB and Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, refuse to die down in the South East part of Nigeria, the campaign for Democracy CD, has lashed out on some selfish Igbo elements who are crucifying the group for their peaceful approach to the demand for the actualization of Sovereign state of Biafra, to shut their mouth, if they do not know what to say.
CD through their South East Chairman, Dede Uzor A. Uzor argued that there is right to peaceful protest, whether what the protesters are reasonable in their demand or not and whether what they are demand is feasible or not, saying that CD will only be against them if they resort to violence or destruction of any kind.
CD also called on the people of South East who are sympathetic to the demands of the two groups to boycott using and buying all the products from the stable of the controversial Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka, who described them as evil, since an evil is not expected to use the product of a saint like Fr Mbaka, until he apologize to MASSOB and IPOB.
CD ask the Catholic authority to call fr Mbaka to order because he is not the only priest in Nigeria and cannot even count as the one of the first 1000 best priests in Nigeria and should not always be be involved in controversy with people and individuals, saying, if he is not tamed, he will end up being an embarrassment to the respected Catholic community.
“We are calling on Igbo Christians to also boycott Rev Mbaka’s Ministry, he is a disappointment to Igbo race, he has not for one day criticized or condemned the brutal killing and open murder of Igbo’s people in the North by the Boko haram insurgents, or ever criticized their activities which are more dangerous and life wasting than what MASSOB and IPOB is doing, we are not surprise because he loves money and they have bribed him with their recent visit to Enugu after which he started talking like he is known for.
CD said that about 2338 members of MMASSOB and IPOB youths have been murdered between September 13, 1999 to date by security agents in the country, while over 900 Igbo’s have been killed with bombs by the Boko haram insurgents and Rev Fr Mbaka has not deemed it fit to speak against them, neither has he alerted the federal Government on the state of the Federal Roads in the South East, just because he has been settled.
