Modern-Day Biafra Agitators Forget Igboland’s Landlocked Contributes Less Than 8 Per Cent To Nigeria’s Economy, Says Uwazuruike

Published

Ralph UwazuruikeThe leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has appealed to the Federal Government to unconditionally release the detained Director of Radio Biafra, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.

Uwazuruike made the appeal Thursday while addressing loyalists and friends of MASSOB, who stormed Owerri, the Imo State capital for the third anniversary of the death of Biafran warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu.

Some dignitaries that honoured the event included, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, Dr. Fredrick Fasheun, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha (retd.), who was the Special Guest of Honour. He was also accompanied to the event by more than 70 persons.

Others included Alhaji Yerima Shettima, President, Arewa Youths Consultative Forum; Prof. Alu Danladi, Ambassador John Fashanu, Alhaji Abdullahi Zaria, Alhaji Sale Hassan, Alhaji Abubakar Shehu, Alhaji Zallari Bello and Alhaji Aminu Gwaru.

Speaking on the peaceful disposition of MASSOB in its agitation, Uwazuruike said: “We are not operating from any foreign country. The so called Radio Biafra, London, was opened by MASSOB in London and Nnamdi Kanu appointed as the Director, after MASSOB had operated Voice of Biafra International in Washington DC for three years. The purpose of Radio Biafra London was to showcase the marginalization of Ndigbo.

He said his group knew the desires of Ndigbo and how to achieve them, noting that those who were threatening fire and brimstone today, were once members of MASSOB before they were expelled due to violence related behaviours.

The MASSOB leader also expressed dismay at the way Ndigbo “castigate, vilify and blackmail their leaders to impress other tribes”, pointing out that “Ndigbo takes delight in killing their leaders to emerge as the new champions.

“Ndigbo are now second class citizens in Nigeria. They will soon be relegated to the third class. Ndigbo blames the Hausa and the Yoruba for their misadventure. Unfortunately, Ndigbo do not see any reason to blame themselves.

“Today, Ndigbo in their usual character, want to decimate MASSOB. They believe that since MASSOB has not achieved Biafra through non-violence for 16 years that they would achieve it through violence”.

Uwazuruike said that those claiming to be champions for the creation of Biafra in their little knowledge, forget that “Igboland is landlocked and that the five states of the South East contribute less than eight per cent of the economy of Nigeria.

“In their little knowledge, they do not know that Ndigbo need deep sea ports to bring in their arms and ammunition to be used to fight an established government of Nigeria.

“There is no Sambisa forest connecting Igboland to other neighbouring countries, through which small arms could be smuggled in”.

    Uwazuruike is just joking. Biafra is not an igbo thing but if this criminal and politician thinks Biafra is an igbo thing, it would not come to pass. He should leave freedom fignhting and face his political biz cos a freedom fighter cannt be a politician. So Uwazuruike shld stop talkin non sense. He should knw dat wit massob alone Biafra would never come. Stay away pls u idiot.

    If u re truly d leader of MASSOB, den it’s a pity wen u know d reality of such is farfetched nd even if u do achieve a sovereign state d odds are against Biafra. What a pity! d movement is just a big CIRCUS, d most unfortunate part is dat it wastes d time of our precious youth dat re supposed to channel their energy to d development of our Great Nation nd nt its division.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
