The leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) have condemned the re arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) by the Nigeria government and what they described as foreign collaborators.
MASSOB accused President Muhamadu Buhari as an ethnic champion whose only goal is to drive an archaic tribal agenda against a nation of progressive minds, a move it said is dead on arrival.
It further stated that the activities of Kanu and pro Biafra agitators does not pose any danger to Nigeria’s existence, but pijyre out the Fulani domination agenda as the sole reason the Nigerian state is about to disintegrate.
The statement is contained in a Press Statement signed by MASSOB leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu.
It read further “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has proven to be a loved figurehead in championing the self determination struggle for the actualization and restoration of Biafra.
“As freedom can never be achieved on platter of gold, Biafra revolutionary struggle for actualization and restoration can never be deterred or fluctuated because of Nnamdi kanu’s current ordeals in the hands of our oppressive enemy. Nigeria state will soon regret arresting him because he will become a thorn in their flesh.
We shall never relent or be disconfited because of Buhari and his ‘Fulanistic sponsored genocidal operations in Biafra land which MASSOB always see as a sign of fear and frustration of Fulani jihadists.
“Biafra agitating groups are not the problem, the Nigerian state as constituted is. Biafra agitation is only a reaction to the many injustices, exclusion, second class citizenship, born to rule mentality, marginalization and other forms of inequality that characterise the Nigerian state.
“Nigeria is a state where some are first class citizens while others are second class; a state where some are born to rule while others are perpetual outcasts, a state where state policy deliberately denies us critical developmental infrastructure while according others same,
“A state where prejudice, tribalism, exclusion and hate are elevated while nation-building is ignored, a state where it seems the only logic for unity is to share oil resources and not on the basis of consent, mutual respect, fraternity and shared brotherhood.
“MASSOB warns the Nigeria government to be extremely careful with our brother, and must accord him a fair and unbiased court hearing. The people of Biafra will never keep quiet over Nnamdi Kanu.
“MASSOB also condemns the military invasion and attack of Sunday Igboho’s residence which led to the killings of many. MASSOB support and will continue to identify with Oduduwa Republic agitation.
No amount of President Muhamadu Buhari’s intimidation through military operations against the agitators of Biafra and Oduduwa Republics will deter or shake the concluded resolutions for independence of Biafra and Oduduwa Republics.
