The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Thursday, asked the Federal Government to quickly conduct a referendum in the south-east geopolitical zone as a precursor to secession or be confronted with a total shutdown of socio-economic activities in the region and beyond.
The group also vowed to unleash its potent force towards making Nigeria ungovernable especially through civil disobedience, if its stance was not heeded by the Federal Government.
MASSOB Director of Information, Samuel Edeson, who made this position known in a statement in Enugu, said “We shall use everything at our disposal to fight Nigeria Government especially through civil disobedience”.
He also said MASSOB would call for sit at home in all Biafra land and Lagos.
“MASSOB will drag former president Olusegun Obasanjo to the International Crime Court, ICC, for all the atrocities he committed against Biafra since 1970.
“The massacre of Odi people, the Tiv, Jukum and the massacre of MASSOB members in Aba, Okigwe and Onitsha including the killing of six Igbo traders in Apo, Abuja.
“MASSOB will be taking her campaign to United States of America, United Kingdom, France and China embassies in Abuja.
“MASSOB, therefore, calls on all people of old eastern region, Delta, parts of Kogi and parts of Benue States to support the referendum that would soon take place in Biafraland. Our freedom is non-negotiable”, the statement said.
