The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has warned unknown gunmen to immediately halt their ongoing destruction of valuable properties and assets in the southeastern region.
MASSOB strongly condemns the activities of these unknown gunmen, particularly their attacks on schoolchildren and teachers, while attempting to enforce a sit-at-home order.
In a statement signed by Comrade Edeson Samuel, the National Director of Information, MASSOB expressed profound disappointment that those claiming to fight for the liberation of the Biafran people are simultaneously causing hardship, impoverishment, and economic devastation among their people.
The destruction of agricultural produce and the mistreatment of schoolchildren and teachers not only impede the progress of the Igbo people but also jeopardize the future of the children and the entire Biafran generation.
MASSOB categorically rejects the continuous and obligatory sit-at-home directive in Igbo land, emphasizing that its enforcement only dismantles their fragile economy and inflicts further suffering on the people. They highlight the resemblance between the Nigerian government’s treatment of the Igbo people and the actions of the group claiming to be pro-Biafra.
MASSOB demands the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from detention and calls upon the South East governors and National Assembly members to take a decisive stance and advocate for his release.
“The actions of Simon Ikpa should be reconsidered, as it is clear that our adversaries find joy in the pain and cries of our people, as this is what they desire. The failure of an Igbo individual and the destruction of our economy have been their aspirations, which is why they only gave the Igbo people €20 after the civil war,” lamented the group.
