• 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
    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
    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
    “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.
