Nov 9, 2015 – Radio Biafra Founder Kanu’s Arrest: MASSOB Members In Aba Give Abia Govt 7 Weeks Ultimatum

The Indigenous People of Biafra protest crept into Aba earlier today, grounding the city regarded as the heartbeat of the South East.

The protest came just a faction of the separatist group, Move­ment for the Ac­tualization of the Sovereign States of Biafra (MASSOB) has issued a one week ultimatum to the Fed­eral Government to imme­diately release the detained Director of Radio Biafra and Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, or face severe sanctions.

The group gave the ultimatum, in a state­ment signed by its director of Information, Comrade Uche Madu, in which he said, at the expiration of ultimatum, MASSOB would “unleash the potency of non-violence which includes civil disobe­dience, civil unrest, non-cooperation, civil /massive boycott as was done during the emancipation struggle of Ghandi of India & Martin Luther King junior”.

Madu affirmed that the action is sequel to the na­tion wide protest embarked by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Friday, demanding for the release of Kanu and pledged full support to the protest by the IPOB, stressing that they would not relent till their agitation is actualized.

The director who expressed regrets with the south east governors, Igbo senators, monarchs as well as leaders for not identifying with the MASSOB struggle, warned that MASSOB would hold the Igbo gover­nors and senators to account if Kanu is not released.

He stated that the south/south and southeast are now better united in the struggle.

“For the sake of Biafra’s love for our fatherland and the spirit of brotherhood, MASSOB shall continue to identify with genuine and selfless Biafra agitation as showcased in Nnamdi Kanu.

The factional MASSOB group warned the federal government to immediately release Nnamdi Kanu now or before Monday or face a severe action that will bring Nigeria to her knees. Ndigbo and South-South are much wiser, united and hungry for Biafra now.

“Only some few disgruntled elements and Abuja errand boys from eastern region are always against Biafra. MASSOB shall hold Igbo governors, National Assembly members, traditional rulers and opinion leaders heavily responsible if Nnamdi Kanu is not released coming week.

“The continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will worsen the already fragile security situation in Nigeria. Factional MASSOB, IPOB and other genuine groups are now ready,” he said.

  1. Is South South States part of Biafra ? Igbos want to play smart over other regions while majority of them are not well informed.

    • THESE ANIMALS CAN NOT DRIVE THESE OLD CARS TO ANOTHER STATES, THEY WOULD BE SHORT DEAD INSTANTLY, JUST BE FOOLING WITHIN YOUR TERETORY..

  2. Some dumb Biafra agitators are beginning to realize that Biafra state will be economically,socially, and politically doomed without cajoling or begging the people of southsouth oil rich region to become part of Biafra and join their nonsense course. Why are they calling for statehood knowing for fact that they can’t suceed on their own without the Southsouth oil resources? That amount to pure stupidity and selfishness. They now claimed that people of the Southsuoth region who have different language, culture, history, and backgorounds their only trusted allies or families because of the region ( Non Ndigbo region) oil wealth. Ere kini aja nba ekun nse? Will the Biafra agitstors recognized the existence and alliance of this region if the oil wells are based on Igbo five states? I leave the question tof the southsouth people to answer. Some of them ignorantly claimed that their root is from Isreal while they called Nigeria a zoo. They are so dumb, uncultured and unrealistic to realized that great Ndigbo leaders like Zik of Africa -Dr. Nnamdi Azikwe-First Nigerian President also dead in the zoo. Even the great Ikemba-Dim Chukemaka Ojukwu died in the zoo called Nigeria AND was buried with a wonderful Nigerian flag. The federal government should not release that criminal minded, rude and uncultured terrorist called Nnamdi Kanu until they are assured that non of his empty threats can be carried out in Nigeria. Only a fool calls a white man land and a Jewish state his country or root but called his father’s House a zoo. How can any reasonable Igbo man associate with uncultured, jobless, frustrated and rude guy like that?

    I want to believe that millions of good, smart,reasonable and business minded Ndigbo are not on board with this craziness. The Ndigbo governors, senators, and monarchs know what are at stake if the evil propaganda of Kanu Nnamdi on his illegal radio sinks into the minds of many jobless youths. Their call for violence will further isolate or put good people from the Southeast to disadvantage politically. How? For Nigeria to have the second Igbo president in a democratic setting, that candidate needs more than 100% of Igbos votes, he or she will needs votes from all Nigerian people from the six regions to win and become president. This senseless call for Biafra state further erodes the trusts of Non Igbo Nigerians. It will be the dumbest thing for any Ndigbo to think that the people of southsouth share in their dream and agitation for Biafra state. If Nigeria was to be divided today, southsouth region will never ally themselves with those five Igbo states to become Biafra. Colonel Chukemaka Dim Ojukwu was highly trained and very educated soldier in the First Republic, he wouldn’t have called for Biafra in the 21st century knowing fully well that he will not have control over the oil wealth from the Southsouth region. Therefore, I strongly believe that the great Ndigbo people are better off and more prosperous in a United Nigeria. Those five supposed Biafra states are not enough in the 21st century for Igbo business minds, trade,and their investments all over Nigeria. Those governors, senators, and the monarchs know these facts but the few jobless guys are not smart enough to realize this basic fact. May God deliver them all from the spirit of joblessness and gross ignorant. Amen.

  3. kehinde, which one is your own. you are only jealous of the people. it is afree world try and aspire for your own. do not speak for the south south. do not botther yourself on how they willl survive with or without oil and the south south. after all not all nations have oil. i think our major problem is the hate induction by our fore fathers

  4. If you know and say the true you will have life abundantly. Southern and Northern Nigeria were almalgamated for selfish reasons. Name one town or city in Biafra land that is comparable to Lagos or Abuja. Why is it that potential sea ports in Rivers and Cross-river states have not been developed and river has not been developed. The Nigerian nation do not love to see development in Biafra land, they should set them free to develope like other nations.They need freedom to develop.When marriage fails the best option is divorce.
