The Comrade Uche Madu- led Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra has dismissed what it called empty boosting from Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Buratai, who was alleged to have said that the creation of the state of Biafra would not immediate.
It was, however, gathered that Army Chief of staff allegedly said that the agitation for the state of Biafra would not be successful in the present era and not even in the four millennia to come.
The group which said that they could not be deterred by Buratai likened such comments from Buratai to what the Leaders of India said before India was broken into two, and Pakistan was created.
In a release signed by the National Secretary of MASSOB, Comrade Ibem Ugwuoke Ibem, he urged Hausa – Fulani apologists like Buratai to desist from speaking against the emergence of Biafra.
Ibem, stated that MASSOB is a non-violent group and asked why the Chief of Army staff should not see the group as a legitimate group that wanted only their freedom to be granted them.
He said, “The comments of Buratai and his cohorts cannot stop us. We are already in the match. Nothing can deter us. What does one expect from one employed by one’s master? Buratai overzealousness to satisfy his master (The Presidency) wills always overshadow him.
I can liken Buratai’s comments to those spoken by leaders of Indonesia before their country broke into two and East Timor was created. I still maintain that Biafra will soon emerge out of Nigeria”.
