Leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) says it acknowledged the eloquent and bold steps being taken by the governors of southern Nigeria.
MASSOB in an electronic mail to Jungle Journalist Media Ltd, described Southern Nigeria as ‘comprising territorial lands of Biafra and Oduduwa Republics’, arguing that the move by the governors will protect the political interest and future survival of southern Nigeria regions from domination by the Hausa Fulani.
Signed by MASSOB leader Comrade Uchenna Madu, the release said the indigenous peoples are happy with the moves, and warned that people in power are colluding with Fulanis across the globe to ‘islamize Nigeria’, kill off the indigenous peoples and take over their ancestral lands, using terrorists and bandits.
It read further “The unanimous decision of the southern region governors in banning the open grazing by Fulani herdsmen and insistence on national dialogue have suddenly aroused and stirred up the frustrated anger and insensitivity of the northern leaders through Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) that opposed the position of the southern region governors Forum in banning open grazing and call for national dialogue. The ACF spits poisonous venoms against the southern region governors and declares war against the southern region.
“MASSOB encourages the southern region governors and other leaders to sustain the southern unity and brace up for the defense of their indigenous people. The Hausa Fulani people are fearful cowards, they only depend on the indigenous people of Middle Belt region to carry out their political, subjective domination, religious and economical wars against the southern region.
“MASSOB advises the indigenous people of Middle Belt region to unanimously oppose every external pressure of the Fulani oligarchy to subject them as political tools of waging war against the southern region. The indigenous people of Middle Belt region must join the southern region in their quest for political emancipation from the subjective domination of Fulani oligarchy”, Comrade Madu said in the release.
