MASSOB supports Arewa youths’ ultimatum to Ndigbo

Published

on

The Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra ( MASSOB) on Wednesday gave full support to the order issued by some Northern Youth groups mandating Igbo people residing in the Northern States of the country to vacate on or before October 1, 2017.

The Youths equally instructed Northern people doing businesses in the South-East States to be prepared to return home.

A coalition of Northern groups, including the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum had on Tuesday in Kaduna ordered All Igbo in the North to leave the region on or before October 1st.

The Order was sequel to the success of the “sit-at-home” order observed in the South-East States in Commemoration of Biafra 50 years anniversary on May 30.

Reacting to the threat, MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu said that the pro-Biafra agitators he leads were giving 100 percent support to the order.

Madu, who said that MASSOB was aware that the quit notice would come, alleged that Northern leaders sponsored their youths to threaten Igbo having seen that Biafra is a reality.

The statement read “The latest quit notice order by the Coalition of Northern youths under the umbrella of Arewa youths is not a surprise gift to Biafrans residing in Arewa land. MASSOB is aware that such rascality will happen.

“As a matter of facts, this is the only rascality exhibited by sponsored Arewa youths to forcefully exit the people of Biafra residing in Arewa land that MASSOB will hundred percent support. Their Boko Haram tactics didn’t work as planned. MASSOB gladly received the good news of quit notice order to the people of Biafra living in Arewa land. We pledge our total support towards this divinely approved quit notice.

“MASSOB congratulates the Arewa political, religious, traditional and opinion leaders who sponsored their youths wing by using Arewa House in Kaduna for this greatest meeting of a coalition of Islamic fundamentalist. MASSOB is hereby advising the people of Biafra mostly the Igbo living in Northern Nigeria (Arewa land) to take this quit notice serious as the plan to violently kill your children, wives and demolish your investments are already perfected”.

According to Madu, MASSOB would not defend Igbo people living in the North should the Northern youths attack them for failing to obey the order.

“MASSOB will never fight or defend your lives and properties in Hausa-Fulani land. The consciousness and realities of Biafra is highly overwhelming now. The northern leaders are no longer comfortable in facing the Biafran reality, their president (Muhammad Buhari) they so much hoped to use as an obstacle to Biafra emancipation is struggling to breathe.

“As there is no other alternative to stopping Biafra freedom, the northern leaders have resorted in using their youths wing to start terrorising the people of Biafra living in the northern region. What they saw on the sit at home exercise of marking 50 years anniversary celebration of Biafra declaration by General Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu marvelled them irrespective of the promises made to them by their stooges in Biafra land.

“MASSOB urge our people to start returning home now. Don’t wait till the three months of quit notice to expire. MASSOB is begging our people to re-invest their investments back to Biafra land”.

    Ignorance is the mother of all sickness, definitely ibis are sick and totally ignorant of the world of togetherness, you assumed that the Northern politicians ignited the Arewa youth to give this quit notice, this is totally blind thought, are you not aware that the first person to talk about this is the Governor of Kaduna State who treating to take these people to prison if found guilty, We the northerners are not as blinded hearted as you are and as well not as greedy as you are, don’t forget we are just watching you long ago right from the birth of this great country call Nigeria, what kind of wickedness and immoral behavior we never received from you, you’re heartless people a small issue you start behaving like animals, you’re silly envious generation unforgiving and selfish people. I have the believe that, Nigeria and Nigerians will be far better without the Igbos, please FGN do all you can to establish the quickest and efficient exit of this people, let them go and built their nation may be in the next 1 or 2 years their biafra will outshine all other nations of the world and let it remains for ever in the heart of the earth. Good luck.

“You cannot condemn an entire profession because of the misconduct of a few. SARS is just a small unit of the Nigerian Police Force, and even among SARS, they are not all bad,” he said

“Yes, some of them might have been quite bad and killed many people, but that should not be used to frame the police in a manner that people feel justified to attack and kill policemen.

“I have seen a video where a policeman was attacked and burnt to death. For what? That policeman is a human being, creation from God, he has children, and he has a family.

“Who will look after them? The Nigerian Police is the only police we have, it Is our collective duty as citizens, as leaders to come together and help the police to be better.”
