The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSSOB) has slammed the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, over its decision to disown pro-Biafra group. The movement described Ohaneze as a saboteur.
Disclosing its stand through its chairman of Presidents in the seven Igbo–speaking states, Dr. Chris Eluomunoh, Ohaneze had last week described the Biafra agitation by some youths as madness, insisting that Biafra died in 1970 with the surrender by the late General Philip Effiong.
However, reacting to the Ohaneze statement, weekend, the national director of information of a faction of MASSOB, Mr. Uchenna Madu, described the utterances against Biafra agitation as selfish and irresponsible.
“The wide acceptance and consciousness of Biafra can never be thwarted or dislocated by disgruntled Igbo. How can a self -acclaimed Igbo leader openly and shamefully disown and condemn Biafra, which is the living symbol of Igbo survival?
“MASSOB still believes that Ohanaeze Ndigbo cannot disown Biafra because the national leadership is still silent on this issue. But if finally it does, the Igbo nation will also disown and expel them from Igboland.”
