MASSOB warns South-East Governors: stop collaborating with security agencies to suppress us

Igbo separatist group MASSOB (Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra) has warned southeast governors to stop collaborating with security agencies in harassing, intimidating and murdering its members.

Briefing Journalists yesterday in Onitsha, Anambra State, shortly after the group’s meeting at Umueri, Anambra East LGA, the Deputy National Director for Information Mazi Chris Mocha threatened that Governor Willie Obiano will plunge the state into anarchy if he doesn’t act accordingly.

Mocha said Governor Obiano had a meeting with security chiefs and local vigilance group at the weekend in Awka where he instructed them to begin an immediate clamp down on members of MASSOB.

He reminded Obiano to be very mindful of international laws on crime against humanity and that he may be listed among persons to be tried at the international court of Justice in the Hague, Netherlands, unless he changes his attitude towards MASSOB members.

Meanwhile, MASSOB allayed fresh fears of the regrouping of some northern anti-Igbo elements at Ihiala town’s Lokpanta cattle market in Umunneochi LGA of Abia state, the central mosque near the government house in Owerri, Imo State, and another mosque located inside Rojenny tourist village, Oba in Idemili south LGA near Onitsha, Anambra state.

The spokesman alleged that while some of the Muslim fundamentalists were Hausa-Fulani who were still in police and military services, others were trained security guards plying transport motorcycles in designated streets at Awada Obosi marine waterside and bridge head in Onitsha, Anambra state.

“Their mission is uncertain as MASSOB revealed that their regrouping is a sign that something bad is about to happen in the southeast in the near future,” Mocha stated.
