The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, (MASSOB) on Wednesday rejected resolutions reached by South East governors and stakeholders towards ending the on-going protests by MASSOB members and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) over the continued detention of the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafra activists.
Speaking to reporters on behalf of the stakeholders’ after their marathon meeting at Government House, Enugu, the Imo State governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha said that a committee would be set up to dialogue with the pro-Biafra agitators with a view to ending the crisis.
“How can revered Igbo leaders waste a whole day in a marathon meeting without discussing our simple demand of Nnamdi Kanu’s release?
“Are they afraid of Northern oligarchy, western alliance with north or President Buhari? The governors Ohaneze and other Igbo leaders have proved that they’re not representing the interest and demands of Ndigbo.
“They have shown their soft mind, inferiority complex and loyalty to our oppressors, we shall prove to Nigeria that the Igbo governors, national assembly members, other Igbo leaders are not truly in charge of affairs in Igboland.
“DSS is buying time for long incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu to impress Buhari and Northern Political cabals that they can frustrate Biafra revolution.
“Long incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu by DSS will only motivate, inspire and increase the moral of Biafran agitators. How long shall they continue to detain an innocent man who already command the massive respect of Ndigbo even in detention?
“MASSOB and IPOB members are not demonstrating or protesting against infrastructural decay in Igboland or non inclusion of Igbos in major political appointments but the release of our brother, Nnamdi Kanu who represent the genuine desire of the people eastern region.
“Other demands and clamor of Ndigbo as a result of the current political tension are good but major one now is the release of Nnamdi Kanu,” the group said.The Street Reporters Newspaper is your BREAKING NEWS platform.
