The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has knocked the Coalition of Northern Group (CNG) for criticising Igbo leaders’ for visiting President Muhammadu Buhari and asking him to grant unconditional release to leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
First Republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazuruike Amaechi had last week Friday led South Eastern elders to visit the President in the Aso Rock Presidential Villa where they among other issues asked for amnesty for Kanu and other detained Igbo youths.
But the Coalition of Northern Groups asked the President not to heed to the request of the Igbos saying the deaths of Northerners will be in Buhari’s hands if he frees Nnamdi Kanu.
Now pro-Biafra group, MASSOB has blasted the reaction of the northern group, calling it an attack on the Igbo nation.
MASSOB, in statement on Wednesday, signed by its National Director of Information, Comrade Edeaon Samuel, called the Coalition “unpatriotic, parasitic and insensitive ,” alleging they work for Fulani herdsmen, bandits and Boko Haram.
It also strongly condemned the recent invasion of an Enugu community by the military that led to the death of three women
The statement said;
“The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of condemned the Coalition of Northern Group and their sponsors on their unguarded and stupid statements against Chief Mbazuruike Amaechi-led Igbo patriotic leaders that visited Major General Mohammadu Buhari in Aso Villa for an interface meeting concerning the detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and agitation clamours for an independent state of Biafra.
“MASSOB views this attack on honorable Igbo leaders as an attack against the Igbo nation. Though the statements of CNG are unpatriotic, parasitic and insensitive, they will never go unpunished.
“MASSOB will always see CNG as a bunch of cowards, charlatans and street boys that is always at the service of Fulani northern oligarchy and their mission of enthroning Islamic fundamentalism in Nigeria.
“They are working for northern-based Islamic terrorist organisations including Fulani herdsmen, Fulani bandits, Boko Haram, ISWAP and President Muhammed Buhari-led Federal Government.”
“The Suleiman Abdul led CNG has failed to call for the arrest of Sheik Gummi who has been negotiating, dining and speaking for terrorist criminals and bandits that are killing, kidnapping and causing genocide in northern Nigeria.
“MASSOB also condemned the illegal military invasion of Umuchite village in Obeagu Odume autonomous community of Aninri LGA last week.”
“It will be recalled that the combined team of Nigeria security personnel stormed the community with four armoured cars, seven army hilux vans, five mobile police hilux vans and three DSS black jeeps in executing the order of inflicting psychological and traumatic pains on the citizens
“On the arrival of the Nigeria combined security agents in Umuchite village, they start shooting sporadically for about six hours creating fears and pandemonium before they leave.
“Their insensitive and primitive unprofessional displays have thrown the community in an emergency mourning because three women among those that suffered psychological trauma have died.
“Nigeria army are the chief agents of untimely deaths sent to Igbo land for depopulation of our people.”
