Secessionist group, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), on Sunday, condemned the killing of an Igbo woman, Bridget Agbahime, by an angry mob in Kano state.
The group expressed their grievance in a statement issued by Comrade Uchenna Madu.
MASSOB described Bridget’s murder as ‘gruesome’ and ‘barbaric’, noting that it will not tolerate such mindless killing of Igbos in Nigeria.
The group also condemned the silence of Igbo governors, saying that if it was an Hausa-Fulani that was killed by Igbos, Igbo governors will shamefully sympathise with the slain.
“The unprovoked and insensitive killing of Igbo woman THursday in Kano state is unacceptable to MASSOB. It can never be washed away or treated insensitively as usual. The open barbaric gruesome murder of an Igbo mother in Arewaland is a conscious provocation of conscience of Ndigbo.”
“Why must the blood of Biafrans continue to be split on Arewaland soil in the name of Islamic Religious fundamentalist and extremists?”
“Why do that Hausa Fulani always derive joy in splitting the blood of Ndigbo residing in the Northern Nigeria? Why is it that the Emirs, Sultan, political, Religious and opinion leaders of Arewaland always keep silent and shows no concern on the plight of Ndigbo residing in Northern Nigeria?
“The consciousness of Biafra, present and future existence of our people are daily inspired by Hausa Fulani agenda being consciously executed by Buhari administrative policies.”
“Biafrans are not happy and can no longer watch heartless killing of our people. MASSOB warns Igbo traditional, Religious, political and opinion leaders to stop sympathizing with the Hausa Fulani people again, if it were the Hausa Fulani people that were killed in Igbo land, some Igbo cowardice governors will openly and shamefully sympathize with them.”
“MASSOB also warns that Deeper Life Church must compensate the pastor husband of the slain Igbo woman because they posted the family to Kano state.”
