The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign States of Biafra (MASSOB) on Thursday defeated the  Ohanaeze Youth Council 2-1 in a novelty football match at Umunze, Orumba in Anambra State in honour of Alex Ekwueme, who will be buried on Friday.

The leader of MASSOB, Uchenna Madu in a statement commended the former vice-president for his contribution to national devlopement

He said, “Ekwueme was an institution of learning, emulation and social justice. Though the Federal Government is hypocritically paying him last respects with the spirit of camouflage, we will never forget him.”

OYC leader Okechukwu Isiguzoro said, “OYC is happy with the novelty match between MASSOB representing Biafra and Ohaneze youths representing Nigeria in honour of our great leader and statesman, even though we lost narrowly to the Biafrans, it was a brotherly match.

” We accept it as a no victor, no vanquished affair. The most important thing is that the late Ekwueme remains the symbol of democracy in Nigeria and anything done to honour him is worthy of his respect as part of the funeral rites according to Igbo traditions.”

Tinubu Hails Protesters, Carpets Hoodlums, Pleads For Cessation

Bola Tinubu

Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has hailed young Nigerians for leading the #EndSARS protests across the nation against police brutality.

The APC National leader also commended Nigerian youths for the level of organisation that went into the protests, saying it showed a new level of consciousness that could strengthen Nigeria’s democracy.

He, however, warned the protesters against creating a platform that would lead to the destruction of Nigeria’s democratic process.

Tinubu pointed out that protesters must not abuse their right of demonstration by impeding the country’s democratic rights.

He, however, stated that the protesters must admit that President Muhammadu Buhari had “acted with commendable dispatch by not only scrapping SARS but also accepting the five-point demand that triggered the protests.”

He said it would only be fair for the youths to call off the protests and give the regime a chance to implement the reforms they had demanded.

Tinubu urged the youths to be careful not to fritter away the considerable gains they had made within a very short period with “lack of moderation and strategic thinking.”

He also condemned hoodlums who had begun to take advantage of the protests to perpetrate violence and disrupt civil life.
