Leader of Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has expressed utter discomfort over the continuous killing of the Igbo in the northern parts of the country as he said the Igbo nation would consider an option of declaring war against the North if pushed to the wall.
Uwazuruike made this known at the wedding ceremony of the daughter of former Chairman of Imo State Council of Traditional Rulers, Eze Cletus Ilomuanya, in Obinugu community in Imo State. He said the Igbo nation had borne the pains of sustained killing of their kinsmen in the northern parts of the country by terrorist groups for too long, contending that the issue, to members of his group, has assumed a more dangerous dimension which he said demanded an urgent attention.
He said the Igbo would not fold their arms while recording the highest casualty in the killing fields of the north, warning that MASSOB would soon engage the North in a bloody war to avenge the killing of innocent Ndigbo, who he said, have been plying their trades in the troubled northern zone. He however assured the Hausa community in the Southeast of adequate protection, disclosing that there won’t be reprisal.
His words: “The Hausa community living in the Southeast should not be afraid, no one will attack them. We are not going to resort to reprisals but will soon declare a full scale war against the North. We can’t take it anymore. We will take the war to their doorsteps now.”
