The Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereignty State of Biafra (MASSOB) has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his comment that Nigerian soldiers were soft on soldiers of the South East during the Biafra civil war.
Uchenna Madu, leader of MASSOB, described Buhari as a “hypocrite” for making such statement.
Madu stressed that people of the South East will never be impressed by Buhari’s “friendly antics”.
In a statement, Madu said, “The sudden reverse or change of tactical approach on issues concerning Biafra consciousness by President Buhari can be likened to an evil man who is dying and confessing his evil atrocities, such death and confessions is beyond the evil man’s control, it is propelled by divine power.
“President Buhari is tactically and subtly making confessional statements that he and his Arewa people thinks that will pacify the people of Biafra.
“The eloquently coming together of all pro Biafra groups with the Biafra spirit of oneness and brotherhood including the global successes of 51 years anniversary celebration of Biafra declaration by our utmost leader, General Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and successful sit at home exercise by the people of Biafra are all sending jittery and uncomfortableness to the Nigeria President Buhari and Arewa Hausa Fulani people.
“The beauty and secret of the success that propelled us is the principals of non-violence, consistencies and self resolute.
“Though we are being persecuted, blackmailed, oppressed, tortured, imprisoned, killed, mesmerized from the oppressors and enemies of Biafra, we shall never succumb, deviate, derail or compromise this divine movement for the actualization and restoration of Biafra sovereignty.
“No amount of President Buhari’s antics or hypocritical statements or friendly appearances will ever impress the people of Biafra. We know him as the major slayer of our unborn children.”
