The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has raised alarm over plans by some hired and sponsored thugs to cause violent civil unrest in the South East through organized protest that will throw Igbo land into an unprecedented chaos and military invasion.
The group led by Comrade Uchenna Madu in a statement by its national director of Information, Edeson Samuel warned perpetrators of violence and public disturbances in Igbo land to stop forthwith saying that its members and Biafrans in general have no intention or plan for any protest or demonstration in Biafra land next week or during this Christmas season.
The statement partly read, “MASSOB received an intelligence report through Biafra Intelligence Agency (BIA) that some hired and sponsored thugs are being mobilized to cause violent civil unrest through an organized protest that will throw Igbo land into an unprecedented chaos and military invasion.
“Our enemies planned to use the anticipated pro Biafra protest to cause more devastative destruction of lives and properties of Ndigbo in this yuletide season. They knew that the month of December and Christmas season is very important to Ndigbo because of our numerous festivities and homecomings.
“The sponsors of the protest are planning to create tensions and feelings of insecurities in Igbo land which will frustrate the homecoming of our people for the Christmas festivals and reunification of kinsmen.”
MASSOB called on all pro Biafra organizations not to allow themselves to be used as tools to forment trouble and violent acts that will jeopardize the lives and properties of Ndigbo.
While saying that the Igbo was yet to recover from the recent Obigbo bloddy massacre, it added that the city of Aba, Onitsha, Enugu, Abakiliki and Owerri are yet to recover from the destruction of government and peoples properties including all the killings and destruction of its infrastructural establishments associated with the EndSARS protest.
MASSOB warned that the commercial atmosphere of the people should not be disturbed.
“We shall never allow perpetrators of violence to hold Igbo land ransom, we can no longer allow bloodsuckers to continue in their business of rendering young children to a fatherless state. Igbo land can never be sacrificed for selfish interest of some bloodsuckers who have no investment or developmental projects in Igbo land.
“MASSOB warns hired thugs and perpetrators of violence not to engage in any acts of disguised protest or demonstration in Igbo land. Our people need peaceful atmosphere to flourish in their businesses in this yuletide season.
“MASSOB warns sponsored and perpetrators of violence protest to stay clear of Igbo land now”, it added.
