March 25, 2014 – MASSOB Declares War On Nigeria “Ndigbo Will Soon Be Delivered” – David Eboson
Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has warned that Nigeria will know no peace until the State of Biafra is actualized and Ndigbo emancipated from what it described as its present enslavement in Nigeria.
Director General of the Biafran Music and Film Authority (OBMFA), David Eboson, who gave the warning in a paper he presented at the launch of a music album entitled: Lota Biafra (remember Biafra), by Chinonso Onukwulu, said no amount of national conference would bring peace to the country.
Eboson said: “The national conference was supposed to have been for the ethnic groups, which were amalgamated as one entity in 1914 by Lord Lugard, to determine their future co-existence and not for Nigerian politicians, who are there for their selfish interests.”
He said the Igbo were like the people of Israel who were oppressed in Egypt before God sent Moses and Aaron to liberate them and expressed optimism that Ndigbo would soon experience that grace of God.
He said that MASSOB through its non-violent posture would continue the struggle for the emancipation of the Igbos, pointing out that what God had destined must surely come to pass.
The OBMFA director general said the launch of the music album, which he described as a wake up call, was apt, saying it came at a time all hands were needed to actualize the organisation’s objectives.
He urged its members to buy copies of the album for their use and give to their relations as well as friends as a way of sending the message of the struggle across.
