The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State Of Biafra (MASSOB) under the leadership of Comrade Uchenna Madu has berated the British High commissioner, Mr. Paul Arkwright, for allegedly kicking against the restoration of Biafra.
The group’s reaction followed Arkwright’s statement, saying the British government would not support secession or breakup of Nigeria. Madu, in a release, said MASSOB was surprised that a learned man like Arkwright could make such a provocative utterance.
“Though MASSOB understands that Mr. Paul Arkwright is working for the interest of Hausa Fulani through the Nigerian government. Mr Arkwright who knows that Biafra agitators have right for freedom of speech should also know that self determination is guaranteed in the United Nations Charter on Human and Peoples Right to which Nigeria is signatory”. “MASSOB is doubting the credibility of the British High Commissioner in Nigeria. The world knows that Scotland is agitating for full sovereignty from United Kingdom but none of the Scottish agitators was arrested or killed by British government. Instead, they conducted a referendum to determine the wish of the people of Scotland.”
“MASSOB wishes to warn Nigerian government of the consequence of spending millions of pounds on British diplomatic lobbies in order to frustrate the emergence of Biafra. Nobody can stop Biafra because God, history and humanity are on our side, Biafra revolution is indestructive.”
“The Hausa/Fulani led Federal Government of Nigeria cannot stop us. Even Biafra betrayers working for our oppressors in Abuja cannot stop us because we are optimistic that Biafra referendum will come in 2018. MASSOB is advising Southern Nigeria politicians mostly the Igbo that there will no election in 2019,” Madu stated.
