The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has said the proscription of the activities of IPOB in the South-East would not stand.
It warned that any attempt by the governors to enforce the proscription will lead to loss of lives.
National Director of Information, MASSOB, Samuel Edeson, said this in an interview with Punch in Enugu.
He described the pro-Biafra groups as independent associations of people whose rights to self determination are backed by the United Nation’s Charter.
According to him, “The governors said they will enforce the proscription, the only way they can do that is by using the shoot-on-sight approach which was started by the Buhari administration. In that case people will die.
“The fact is that MASSOB was never registered under the Nigerian government; neither did we register under the Corporate Affairs Commission.
“We are an independent organisation, we are freedom fighters — there is nowhere in the world where a self determination group is proscribed.
“It (proscription) cannot stand; nobody can drive us away from our father’s land.”
