*Blames Igbo leaders for sabotaging pro-Biafra groups
From Steve Oko, Umuahia
The leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has warned South East Governors as well as Igbo leaders not to dismiss with a wave of the hand the proposal by Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, to establish Fulani Youths vigilantes in South East, saying the plot is real and almost at the point of execution.
MASSOB said the disclosure of the suspicious proposal by the group was just to ‘test the waters’, insisting that Igbo leaders must go beyond “the usual social media response” and take concrete steps to abort the plot.
According to MASSOB, those behind the “evil agenda” are only waiting to see the reactions of South East leaders and people before moving to execution point.
MASSOB, in a press release personally signed by its leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu, also described the proposal as a prelude to the rumoured Fulanisation /Islamisation agenda.
According to MASSOB, the real intention of those behind the proposal ” is to set up a recognised body to oversee the affairs and activities of the terrorist Fulani herdsmen in South East.”
“For the fulanis to boldly issue out this sacrilegious and abominable statement proofs that the establishment of their security vigilantee is already at the execution stage.
“They merely wanted to know the reactions of Ndigbo which will always be the temporal noisemaking.
” In few weeks, the President Buhari -led federal government will establish a bias national paramilitary security body to assist police in combating crimes all over Nigeria, the Fulani as well will take over the leadership control of this newly created civilian police both in national and state levels. They will be equipped and armed for the sole purpose of conquering Igbo land and other Christian dominated states. ”
MASSOB lashed out on Igbo leaders for their inglorious role in the proscription of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, accusing them of conniving with the enemies to sabotage “their own heroes”.
” We restate our earlier warning that until the Igbo political, traditional, religious leaders recognize the potencies of the pro Biafra groups and engaged them on the security of lives and properties of Ndigbo, Igbo land will continue to be playing field for the devourers of our people.
“The South West leaders have never condemned or proscribed the activities of OPC or other Oduduwa pressure groups, instead they are working with them for the general interest of Oduduwa land.
“Even in the northern region, their leaders have never condemned the terrorist activities of Boko Haram and Miyetti Allah. Igbo Governors, national and state lawmakers worked against pro-Biafra groups.”
MASSOB warned Igbo leaders to be proactive , sleep with one eye closed and unite against the proposal.
“Ndigbo should stop deceiving themselves with numerous media noisemaking and whatsapp group chatting.
“Many Igbo known and unknown groups and individuals will engage in media noisemaking without any proper and effective plan to counter this genocidal onslaught against our future existence.
“Though MASSOB and other pro Biafra groups are non violence, we still have our own traditional means and mechanism to protect the lives and properties of the people of Biafra.”
