MASSOBThe Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has pledged peaceful procession to mark 17 years anniversary of the group today, September 13.

MASSOB’s religious administrator, Apostle Ezichukwu, made the pledge on Monday in Onitsha, Anambra State, while speaking with newsmen.

He promised that during the procession, participants would not harass anybody or disrupt peoples business just as he urged the government not to use its security operatives to disrupt the event.

Mr. Ezichukwu, who reaffirmed that the procession would not be violent, urged the residents including traders and civil servants to go about their normal businesses.

He said the struggle of the Ralph Uwazuilke-led MASSOB, now called Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), did not encourage violence.

“We have warned members against violent behaviour”, he said. “The procession will be peaceful and there will be no sit-at-home”.

Mr. Ezichukwu expressed satisfaction that the South-East had realised why Mr. Uwazuruike vowed peaceful continuation of the struggle, adding that the group was working toward non-violence self-determination for the people.

“We have been marginalised for years in a country we believed we helped to build and should be part and of.

“MASSOB faithful are in a two-day prayer to ensure free celebration”, he said.
