Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign state of Biafra (MASSOB) has disowned its founder, Chief Ralph Uwazurike.
It also cautioned that it was not affiliated to any group called Biafra Independent Movement.
The new group also emphasized that it has no plans or input in the slated forthcoming celebration tagged “Baifra Day” on 22 May 2017.
According to Mr. Uchenna Madu, the acclaimed leader of MASSOB, he directed that its members should ignore the May 22 celebration. Rather they should prepare for the main event which he said will take place on May 30, known as Biafra Remembrance Day.
While speaking about the situation of things, Mr. Uchenna Madu, stated “We have reiterated our solemn oath taking for actualization and restoration of an independent Republic of Biafra,’’
“We reassure the people of Biafra that actualization and restoration of Biafra is sacrosanct and sacred.
“Every aspect of Biafra struggle must abhor deceit, self glorification, tribal/religious sentiments and love for mundane things.“
Continuing, Madu said that MASSOB declared support for sit at home exercise for all Biafrans on 30th May, 2017 as a mark of respect and honour to our gallant Biafra soldiers and civilians that sacrificed their precious lives for establishment of Biafra during the war of 1967–1970.
“We must continue to remember, honour and celebrate the gallantry and braveness of Biafra soldiers whom the whole world was astonished for their military exploits during Nigeria Biafra war.
He stated categorically, “we don’t have any Biafra anniversary program on 22 May, 2017’’.
“The sit at home exercise calls for sober reflection on the way forward, it calls for individual and family prayers for speedy actualization and restoration of Biafra, it will also reflect on building synergy and cohesion among the Pro Biafra groups for the preparation for the coming referendum.
“MASSOB also reiterates our earlier position that we are not attached to any group called Biafra Independent Movement (BIM),
“MASSOB is not BIM, also the so called BIM can never be MASSOB. MASSOB collaborates and work with other genuine pro -Biafra groups like IPOB, Lower Niger Congress, Eastern Peoples Congress, Biafra Peoples National Council, Joint Revolutionary Council and AFRA Descendants.
The people of Biafra should disregard the false information that MASSOB will observe Biafra day on May 22, 201, he said.
“The golden jubilee celebration of Biafra declaration anniversary will be golden and superlative. It will be a moment of sober reflection among the Biafra agitators.“ he conclude.
