The founding father of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, and the Biafra Independent Movement, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has assured members of the group to expect the creation of Biafra Republic without violence.
He also assured that the 19th anniversary celebration of the Biafra independence will be a non-violent one.
The celebration is billed to take place on September 13, 2018 in all the zones of MASSOB in the entire Southeastern and South southern states.
Uwazuruike, who spoke through the MASSOB National Director of Information, Sunday Okereafor on Friday, stated that the freedom fighting group was happy that for 19 years, the group had maintained peace and non violence in their quest for the actualisation of Republic of Biafra, in the face of crackdown by Nigeria’s security operatives.
“Kudos to MASSOB to have kept the struggle without violence for 19 years now. The Igbo nations should expect Biafra without gunshot. I want to assure all of them agitating for Biafra and entire Biafran land that the much-coveted BiafraRepublic is at our doorstep”, he said.
He vehemently frowned against the attack on MASSOB members and office at Nworieubi in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State.
“It is a shame to Nigeria’s military that the non-violent MASSOB freedom fighters are always attacked, leaving their protection of territorial integrity of the country, the primary mandate for which they were established,” he added.
