The leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Uchenna Madu, has condemned the re-arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, by the Nigerian Government.
Kanu was arrested over the weekend in a foreign country by security agencies.
Madu in a statement made available to News Express on Thursday described the re-arrest as inconsequential and insensitive, accusing the President Muhamadu Buhari administration of being confused, blind and clueless.
He said: “Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and activities of pro Biafra agitators does not pose any danger to Nigeria existence, the problems that poses a dangerous extinction on Nigeria existence is Fulani domination of Nigeria state over the general interest of other ethnic nationalities.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has proven to be a loved figurehead in championing the self determination struggle for the actualization and restoration of Biafra.
“As freedom can never be achieved on platter of gold, Biafra revolutionary struggle for actualization and restoration can never be deterred or fluctuated because of Nnamdi Kanu’s current ordeals in the hands of our oppressive enemy. Nigeria state will soon regret arresting him because he will become a thorn in their flesh.
“We shall never relent or be discomforted because of the Fulanistic sponsored genocidal operations in Biafra land which MASSOB always see as a sign of jittery and frustration of Fulani people.”
The MASSOB leader insisted that Biafra agitating groups are not the problem, but rather the Nigerian state as presently constituted.
He maintained that the Biafra agitation is only a reaction to the many injustices, exclusion, second class citizenship, born to rule philosophy, marginalization and other forms of inequality that characterise the Nigerian state.
“Nigeria is a state where some are first class citizens while others are second class; a state where some are born to rule while others are perpetual outcasts, a state where state policy deliberately denies us critical developmental infrastructure while according others same,
“A state where prejudice, tribalism, exclusion and hate are elevated while nation-building is ignored, a state where it seems the only logic for unity is to share oil resources and not on the basis of consent, mutual respect, fraternity and shared brotherhood,” Madu added.
The MASSOB leader further warned the Nigeria government to be careful with Kanu and accord him a fair and unbiased court hearing.
“The people of Biafra will never keep quiet over Nnamdi Kanu.”
MASSOB also condemned the military invasion and attack of Sunday Igboho’s residence which led to the killings of some of his aides. “MASSOB supports and will continue to identify with Oduduwa Republic agitation,” the statement added.
