The group said this in reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement, telling anyone who wants to leave the country to do so if they have another one to go to.
“The federal government is busy, chasing, witch-hunting and killing Biafrans and agitators, while the country is collapsing, and will soon go into extinction because of clueless and directionless leadership,” MASSOB said in a statement by Uchenna Madu, its leader.
Madu said Buhari will face consequences for mocking Biafrans.
“We reiterate our earlier position that those who wish to play pharaoh against the people of Biafra, will certainly experience the consequences of the Egyptian Pharaoh,” he said.
“President Buhari’s statement that anyone, who cherished another country can leave Nigeria is not something to be cheerful about, celebrated and in any way heartwarming.
“MASSOB views it as part of Pharaoh’s subtle way of mocking the Hebrews-Biafra. The people of Biafra should not celebrate or rejoice over that cunning and mocking assertion.
“The time of God’s calamitous earthquake that will delete the name of the country from the world map, government and other functions is very fast approaching. ”
Madu said all pro-Biafran groups will remain non-violent, and continue to uphold the values of the late Chukwuemeka Ojukwu.
“MASSOB and other pro-Biafran groups will continue to remain non-violent and focused,” he said.
“We will continue to be loyal to Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu’s principles, vision and legacies; and continue to revive and refresh the consciousness of Ojukwuism in the minds of every Biafran.”
