The leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, yesterday gave what he called final warning to all Igbo sons and daughters resident in the northern part of Nigeria to leave the zone or face dire consequences.
Uwazuruike, who gave the warning in Okwe near Okigwe, Imo State, after an emergency meeting with leadership of the movement, said the directive became imperative to avoid further loss of Igbo lives in the North due to the increasing bloodletting by Boko Haram insurgents.
The MASSOB leader said it did not require a prophet for any Igbo man or woman to know that Nigerian security forces could no longer guarantee their safety since the insurgents had not relented in their wicked bloodletting activities. He said anybody who disregarded his last warning would face the consequences.
Uwazuruike said that every Igbo man and daughter came from a community in the South-East, therefore, it would be better for them to die among their kith and kin than to be killed by Boko Haram in the North.
He restated the commitment of MASSOB to actualise the sovereign state of Biafra through non-violence, saying the movement would not be cowed to silence.
