What I promised Odumegwu-Ojukwu on fight for Biafra after civil war – MASSOB Leader
Founder of the Biafra Independence Movement (BIM) and Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Ralph Uwazuruike has revealed the promise he made to late warlord Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu and the United Nations (UN) in actualising the sovereign nation of Biafra.
Uwazuruike stated that he promised Ojukwu and the United Nations (UN) that people of the South-East region would not engage in violence in their quest to have a separate nation.
The MASSOB leader made this known in a statement signed by BIM’s Director of Information, Elder Chris Mocha.
The statement reads, “We remain fully committed to our peaceful approach towards the actualisation of Biafra independence. Biafrans won’t fight another civil war with Nigeria, despite the level of provocation. We are very positive that we will reach the promised land without firing a gunshot.
“We advise that such insinuations should be outrightly dismissed because it is fake. We however insist on the genuineness of our organisation’s position and commitment to actualise Biafra without firing a gunshot.
“The founder of MASSOB, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike promised Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu that the new Biafra struggle for independence will not cause another war in the country.
“We shall achieve our new nation where the free gift of nature to man, abundant natural resources in our land, shall be used to improve the life of man. The second Biafra-Nigeria civil war began on May 22, 2000, shortly after the re-declaration of the New Biafra, based on non-violence and non-exodus philosophy.
“Having also assured the United Nations, UN, in the Biafra Bill of Rights, which was submitted on November 1, 1999, our leader promised that MASSOB shall remain peaceful in the course of its agitation for Biafran sovereignty.
“Therefore any politician or group, sponsoring or inciting violence or calling for war in Nigeria, is on their own because Biafra fought a fratricidal war between 1967 and 1970 and the region is not prepared for another war of arms.”
