You Can’t Stop Biafra, Separatist Tells Buhari And Nigeria Army
The Movement for the Actualisation of a Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) have condemned a fresh military invasion of the home of Eze Israel Kanu, the father of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, at Afara Ukwu, Abia State.
The group’s National Director of Information, Samuel Edeson on Monday in Awka, Anambra State said the attack was primitive and cowardly, insisting that no amount of such intimidation would stop Biafran agitators from continuing with the struggle, adding that President Muhammadu Buhari cannot destroy the Biafran consciousness.
Edeson described the act as a sign of jittery, cowardice and Buhari’s government’s frustration on the eloquent consciousness and realities of Biafra freedom which is being appreciated and acknowledged by international community.
However, Kanu’s family had on Sunday raised the alarm that soldiers invaded their compound again, alleging that the soldiers invaded their home and carted away some household items. Kanu’s younger brother, Emmanuel Kanu made this known to news men.
The group in a statement made available to news men maintained that there was no amount of force that could crush the Biafran ideology.
The statement read in part;
MASSOB and other pro-Biafran agitators are not cowed or intimidated by these sheer acts of overzealousness and ethnic hatred of the people of Biafra by the Hausa-Fulani dominated Nigeria security apparatuses.
Even in these persecutions, arrests, extrajudicial killings, subjections and detentions of non-violent pro-Biafran agitators, we shall continue to maintain our non-violent principles.
MASSOB and other pro-Biafran groups are the political masqueraders of Ndigbo. We shall continue to be the pride of Ndigbo, upholding the vision of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
