We’re tired of Nigeria, says MASSOB

Members of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and Biafra Independent Movement (BIM) yesterday, converged on Lagos, to mark the 17th anniversary of agitation for secession.


A leader of the Elders Council, Western Region Zone B, Eze Calistus, told Newsmen that Ndigbo were tired of Nigeria and said their lives were no longer safe due to killings and harassment in the hands of security agents and Fulani herdsmen.

Also, in Asaba members of Anioma region of  the group also celebrated the anniversary in the Delta State capital.

The event was, however,  low key as coordinator of the group in the region, Mr. Emeka Okafor seized the opportunity to hail the leadership style of the group’s leader, Ralph Uwazuruike for remaining non-violent in the face of provocation.

Okafor said the movement believes in non-violent ways to achieve its aim and expressed confidence that no amount of intimidation and “unnecessary detention of our members” can stop the realisation of Biafra.

Members chanted solidarity songs in Igbo to renew their quest for self-actualisation. They vowed that there was no going back in the struggle.

The leader clarified that MASSOB didn’t abandon one of its agitators, Nnamdi Kanu, in detention. He said in due course, he would regain his freedom.

Not daunted by the incarceration of its leaders, the group, yesterday morning, paraded the streets of Ikom in Central senatorial district of Cross River State to mark the 17th anniversary of its existence.

In Calabar, the group, who came from other local government areas including Ogoja, Ugep, Obubra, Obudu and Abi to attend the rally, marched round some major streets and ended at Ikom Township Stadium, chanted victory songs and rendered the Biafra anthem.

Zonal leader of the movement in the state, Samuel Okah, who led the parade said the event was to mark the 17 years of peaceful struggle for the actulisation of a nation for the people of Biafra.

“It has been 17 years of peaceful agitation by the people of Biafra, led by Chief Ralph Uwazuruike and we are making steady progress for the coming to fruition of our efforts which is a clear demonstration of the fact that peaceful efforts get more mileage than violence,” Okah said.
