…Says it is act of frustration not to defeat Boko Haram
Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) under the leadership of Mr. Uchenna Madu has called on the President Mohammadu Buhari to call the Chief of Army Staff to order with immediate effect or face legal action for violation of human rights.
The group said that President Buhari should understand the signatory of Nigeria as a member of United Nations and African Union on Human and Peoples Rights which was enshrined in human and people right charter.
The National Director of Information of MASSOB Mr. Edeson Samuel in a statement maintained that they cannot be intimidated by Nigerian security agents in their efforts to clampdown on pro-Biafran agitators.
“The Operation Python Dance or Egwu-Eke II in Biafran land is act of frustration from Nigerian government. Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai has failed to capture the Boko-Haram leader Shakaru on the stipulated date giving to him. Is Burutai never dim it fit to lunch operation ‘machiji or kunama’ meaning operation snake bite or scorpion sting respectively against the Hausa/fulani herdsmen who went about killing people, raping women and young girls, setting peoples houses ablaze”.
“This APC led government is a dictatorship and human rights violator. We cannot run away from our fathers land, no amount of military and police deployment will deter us from pursuing our legitimate right for self-determination and that is Biafra actualization”.
“It is unfortunate that Chief of Army Staff and his troop has failed to restore peace in North-east where Boko-Haram has been in control for many years now. Nigerian security agents have failed to arrest Alhaji Yerima Shetima of Arewa youth and the sponsors for the quit notice they issued to NdIgbo”.
“MASSOB wished to remind President Buhari that his predecessor Chief Olusegun Obasanjo used the same force against MASSOB when he was president from 1999-2007. He sent troops against Massob members, many of our members were killed, some detained while others had degrees of injuries. Instead of backing out, the struggle became stronger”.
“President Buhari can employ Air force, Navy and Arab/Islamic nations as mercenaries against Biafrans but that cannot stop us. Biafra has come to stay” Samuel stated.
