The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) on Saturday, advised the Niger Delta Avengers, a militant group, to not relent in its attacks on crude oil pipelines and installations in the Niger Delta region.
A statement was signed to this effect by MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu, who said Nigeria only understands the language of violence.
“The natural inhabitants and indigenous people of these lands are Biafrans by birth but Nigeria by citizens. MASSOB have made it open that we want Biafra though we chooses non violence approach, we shall also support every genuine and legitimate methodology,approach chosen by any group towards Biafran self determination.”
“Because of our non violence approach, the Nigerian security forces have killed thousands of MASSOB members and other group members since 1999 when the current struggle started.”
“These extra judicial killings of non violence and unarmed Biafra agitators have gone unchecked by the Nigerian Government and international watchdogs against human rights abuses, brutalities, genocides and pogroms including United Nations.”
“The western world seems not to react against the Ethnic cleansing of our people because of economic and diplomatic interest in Biafra natural treasures which they aligned with Nigeria, they kept their hypocritical eyes closed against the fate of over 60 million Biafrans.”
“Nigeria and her likes understand the only language of violent, today, Buhari’s military soldiers are being disgraced, economic power block being dismantled, diplomatic relations being shattered, his Government in disarray even himself is confused because of the activities of Biafran agitators in the Eastern region.”
“Our comrades from Niger Delta who are more United and focused than groups from Igbo based hinterland should not relent as the knees of our oppressors shall bow soon. They will beg Nnamdi Kanu.”
