No go­ing back on Biafra –MASSOB

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Johnkennedy Uzoma, Ow­erri

Move­ment for the Ac­tu­al­iza­tion of the Sov­er­eign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has in­sisted that there is no go­ing back in the strug­gle for Biafra.

As­sis­tant Na­tional In­for­ma­tion Di­rec­tor of MASSOB, Mr Sunny Ok­ereafor, said this while ad­dress­ing news­men on the re­cent call on the group by the Arewa Con­sul­ta­tive Fo­rum (ACF) to work to­gether to en­sure one Nige­ria.

He said: “We are say­ing no to their re­quest, be­cause the force­ful mar­riage that joined them to Nige­ria can no longer con­tinue”.

While in­sist­ing on a peace­ful se­ces­sion from Nige­ria, Ok­ereafor con­demned what he called fail­ure of ACF mem­bers to con­demn ac­tiv­i­ties of Boko Haram in the North-east.

He re­gret­ted that since the civil war, Ig­bos had re­mained un­pro­tected, a sit­u­a­tion which he said re­sulted in killing of Ig­bos through or­ga­nized riot.

Ok­ereafor, who hailed Pres­i­dent Buhari for his call for free­dom of the op­pressed in the world, said, “All Ig­bos should have their free­dom while the North­ern­ers should stay with their Boko Haram peo­ple”.
