ENUGU – THE Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State Of Biafra, MASSOB, has commended the courage of President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, and his passion for restoration of dignity of the Igbo nation.
Nwodo while delivering a lecture at Chatham House, London, this week, had dissected problems of Nigeria, noting that the Igbo question in Nigeria must be addressed conclusively.
MASSOB under the leadership of Comrade Uchenna Madu said Nwodo was a rare breed of of an Igbo leader and praised his leadership quality.
In a statement in Enugu, yesterday, MASSOB National Director of Publicity, Samuel Edeson said that Nwodo was indeed an action leader whose
address in London proven him a fearless, a man of integrity who stands for justice cannot be intimidated.
“He has exposed Nigerian
government. Truth is always bitter but only the truth will set Nigeria free.
“MASSOB is not saying that Nigeria should disintegrate.
What we are demanding is freedom of Biafrans. Any Igbo man or woman who wishes to remains in Nigeria is free and if any Nigeria feels to live in Biafra, he will be accepted.
“If President Mohammad Buhari is supporting the states of Palestinian and Saharawi, why is he against Biafra freedom?
“MASSOB wishes to make it clear that no amount of
threats by Nigerian army, police and other security agents can ever stop us from pursuing our freedom.
“What we are doing is
legal, constitutional and justifiable and nobody can ban us because self determination is guaranteed by United Nations and the African Union charter, which Nigeria is signatory to both organisations,” Edeson said.
The Pro-Biafra group alleged that it was for fear of international prosecution that the Nigerian government is considering pulling out of 90 international organizations it belongs to.
“Nigerian government is afraid of prosecution by all these organizations. The genocide and war crime cases are at the
door of Nigeria government. The Chief of Army Staff and the GOC 82 Division must face ICC.
“Python should go ahead and dance, after dancing we shall
see the end of Python. Biafra agitators cannot be banned. Nigeria, let Biafra go and you will have peace,” he stated.
