The Movement for the Actualization of a Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has faulted fresh military invasion of the home of Eze Israel Kanu, father of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.
In a statement issued in Awka, Anambra State, on Monday by MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Samuel Edeson, the group tagged the attack ‘primitive and cowardly’.
Edeson described the act as, “Signs of jittery, cowardice and Buhari’s government frustration on the eloquent consciousness and realities of Biafra freedom which is being appreciated and acknowledged by international communities”
He said, “The international community should prevail on the Nigeria Army to stop raiding our home again. We have been telling the Army to produce my bother whose whereabouts has remained unknown since after the September 14 military invasion of our compound.”
“Applications of brutal Federal forces against the nonviolence Biafra agitators can never subdue or defeat the indestructible revolution of Biafra.
“MASSOB and other pro-Biafra agitators are not cowed or intimidated by this sheer acts of overzealousness and ethnic hatred of the people of Biafra by Hausa Fulani dominated Nigeria security apparatuses.
“Even in these persecutions, arrests, extrajudicial killings, subjections and detentions of nonviolence, pro-Biafra agitators, we shall continue to maintain our non-violence principles.
“MASSOB and other pro-Biafra groups are the political masquerades of Ndigbo. We shall continue to be the pride of Ndigbo, upholding the vision of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.”
On the Anambra November 18 poll, MASSOB said pro-Biafra groups were yet to decide on whether they will boycott the exercise or declare a sit-at-home order on the election day.
“We shall consult and deliberate widely on the positive and negative implications of such exercise in Anambra state.
“MASSOB must be tactical and sensitive in considering the wills and civil rights of the citizens.”
Kanu’s family had on Sunday alleged that soldiers invaded their compound again.
Kanu’ younger brother, Emmanuel Kanu, alleged that the soldiers invaded their home and carted away some items.
