MASSOB: We are not interested in Nigeria politics,but total emancipation of Biafra

The Movement for the Actualization of
the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB)
has said that re-electing President
Muhammadu Buhari into office for a
second term and indeed politics in
Nigeria generally are no longer of interest
to them, but the actualization of Biafra.
Speaking against the backdrop of the
recent declaration of President Buhari to
seek re-election in 2019, the National
Director of Information for MASSOB,
Sunny Okoroafor, said it does not matter
to the pro-Biafra group if the president
re-contested and wins election 20 times
in Nigeria, stressing that what matters
most to them is Biafra.
“If President Muhammadu Buhari declares
for a second term or not, it is not our
concern, our major concern is Biafra.
Elections in Nigeria are baseless and
flawed, MASSOB do not have interest in
Nigerian politics. However, we are not
going to disrupt the 2019 elections”, he
assured.
Okoroafor said that Nigeria was not even
supposed to be talking about election
when there was killings everyday across
the country, adding that the best thing
those in power should do at this point in
time was to stop these killings and not to
talk about election.
“The president should first of all stop the
killings and bloodletting across Nigeria
which is paramount before talking of re-
contesting election. But as the president
of the country, he has the right to seek
re-election and nobody will take away
that from him,” he said.
He advised the Igbo not to participate in
next year’s election, stressing that if Boko
Haram and Fulani herdsmen could be
killing people on daily basis now there is
no election, that killings would be worse
in 2019.
“The 2019 election in the country will be
bloody, if they could be killing people
everyday when there is no election,
imagine what will happen if there is
election in the country. Our advice to the
Igbo is that they should not participate in
the Nigerian election as not to be victims
of what is going to happen.
“Nigeria is in big trouble and people are
talking about election, what type of
election is that when people are dying
everyday. Nobody is safe again in the
country and that is why we are agitating
for Biafra, which must surely come.
“Look at the killings all over the country,
today it is Boko Haram, tomorrow, it is
Fulani herdsmen, maybe before the
elections next year, another group of
killers will emerge, but my advice to our
people is that they should not be involved
in the election as not to be prey to the
Hausa/Fulani,” Okoroafor cautioned.
The MASSOB national director of
information said for Nigeria to have
peace, it should let Biafra go. “Not only
that, the country will be spilt into six
countries so that each zone would go its
own separate way. If this is not done,
Nigeria will continue to be in turmoil,” he
said.
He also said that MASSOB is in total
support of what General T.Y Danjuma
said that Nigerian should protect
themselves since those saddled with the
responsibility have failed them, adding
that his group was prepared to defend the
Biafra Igbo since it is now confirmed that
the military is conniving with the herders
to unleash mayhem on the people of the
country.
“It is true that we don’t carry guns and
we don’t believe in violence, but MASSOB
will use catapult to defend our people and
we are sounding a note of warning to the
Fulani herdsmen that they should not
come to the South-East.
“The Fulani want to use their herdsmen to
conquer the whole of Nigeria, including
Igbo land. What their fore-fathers couldn’t
achieve in the 19th Century, they want to
accomplish in the 21st Century, it is not
possible, let them come to Igbo land, we
are waiting for them”, he warned.
