The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, yesterday, condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s condolence to the people of Benue State over the killing of 19 christians, including two Reverend Fathers, by herdsmen, saying the president’s action was hypocritical and taunting, which was aimed at ridiculing the Christian faith.
A statement by the MASSOB leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu described the herdsmen as a killer squad and wondered how its patron could send condolences to its victims, adding that such condolences were glaringly full of hypocrisy.
The statement said: “We know that Miyetti Allah, the real movement using herdsmen as a camouflage, is the fourth worst terrorist organization in the world ranking.
“It’s members have openly vowed and threatened by their sponsors and patrons, which include Islamic religious, traditional and opinion leaders that they will continue to dominate and terrorize all perceived enemies and oppositions.”
“They have also insisted that President Buhari must continue as president of Nigeria because he is their own, who is implementing the religious instruction of Othman Dan Fodio.”
MASSOB charged the Catholic Church and the people of Benue State not to accept President Buhari’s condolence message because, according to the organization, “he hypocritically exempted his Islamic foot soldiers from the gruesome murders of followers of Jesus Christ.”
He said it was obvious that President Buhari would hand over power to a Muslim Yoruba man after his tenure, adding that those in authority were seriously working on this Islamic agenda which no APC bigwigs from old Eastern region could stop.
He said further: “Chibuike Amaechi, Rochas Okorocha, Ogbonnaya Onu, Chris Ngige and others from Igbo land that later joined APC are political errand boys and stooges of the real owners and controllers of APC.
“With President Buhari’s body language and Osibanjo’s consistent defense of his master, the appointments of all security service chiefs from Buhari’s Islamic kinsmen, his continuous defence and protection of his foot soldiers popularly known as herdsmen, his insensitivities against non Muslims and inabilities to protect the citizens, are all clear signs and evidences that Buhari is executing an arranged and planned agenda that is detrimental to non Muslims in Nigeria.
“The rot, imbalances and inequalities in education sector, where there are special and preferential laws for northern citizens against the southern citizens, the economic harsh policies against the people of Eastern region, the continuous tribalism and sentimental hatred exhibited against the people of Eastern region and Christians in Nigeria, are all manifestation of bad government .
“MASSOB still maintains and insists that President Buhari remains the last president of Nigeria. His secret pact with Bola Tinubu and other top selected Islamic leaders in Nigeria will never be achieved.
“Nigeria is already sitting on a time bomb which will likely explode soon. The consciousness of future survival of the people of Biafra, the Middle Belt and Oduduwa, have been reawakened for total defence of our lands and our people from Buhari and his kinsmen.”
