Leader of the Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has charged members of the movement to boldly proclaim the name of Biafra where ever they find themselves.
Uwazuruike pointed out that fear of mentioning Biafra’s name in any part of the country should not arise because MASSOB in itself is the fear and mere mentioning its name is enough to scare those he described as saboteurs, adding that there is nothing whatsoever to be afraid of since an Igbo adage says that “fear does not fear anything”.
The MASSOB leader, therefore, charged his members to go all over the place and campaign for the independence of Biafra without violence, as contained in the popular call of former Biafran Head of State and respected Igbo leader, Late Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu.
Uwazuruike, who spoke yesterday at Ojukwu’s Memorial Library, in new Owerri, Imo State, declared: “The signs of Nigeria’s break-up are everywhere. In Nigeria, it is only the Igbo of Eastern Nigeria that is seeking for independence through MASSOB. While MASSOB seeks for freedom, self-determination, secession and the sovereignty of Biafra, adding, South West seeks for true federalism, but in their minds they want an Oduduwa Republic”.
He further declared: “Our brothers in the South-South seeks for resource control of what God had given them, but in their minds they want a country where their children and children’s children can proudly call their own. Therefore, anybody who fights against Biafra fights against God and the people and let me assure you that a free state of Biafra will assist America in the global war against terrorism”.
