Buhari is Deluded, Biafra is a Dream Turned Reality – IPOB

by on May 11, 2016
The Movement for the Ac­tualisation of the Sov­ereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), have said that the struggle for Bia­fra Republic cannot be stopped by any Nigerian government or leader.
The groups said that they have been strengthened by the threat of President Muham­madu Buhari that he would not allow any part of the coun­try to secede.
Buhari was on Monday quoted as vowing to stop the agitations by MASSOB and IPOB for the creation of a Bi­afra Republic.
Reacting to the President’s statement, MASSOB lead­er, Comrade Uchena Madu, said that the President should crush the Boko Haram insur­gents than threatening persons for peacefully seeking for self-actualisation.
He urged the President to be mindful of the way he com­ments on issues that border on critical national and interna­tional issues.
Madu accused Buhari of speaking with a military men­tality of the Nigeria-Biafra war, not knowing that the methods and strategy of the current Bi­afra struggle differed from that era.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the IPOB declared that no mortal can stop the freedom quest of Biafra.
Through its spokespersons, Dr. Clifford Iroanya, and Mr. Emma Nmezu, IPOB said it de­cided to embark on unplanned peaceful protest in Aba, Abia State to register its annoyance with Buhari over the comment which it described as “laugha­ble”.
The statement read in part: “It is with a profound sense of responsibility, that we make public our reasons for quietly rolling out one of our 48 zones on the streets today (yesterday). The reasons for this unplanned peaceful march are as follows:
“We are pained by the state­ment Gen. Buhari made on Monday in Kastina, that the whole of Nigerian would rath­er perish, than our people to be free from bondage. We view that position as the mindset of a deluded man.
“It is a pity that the man cannot see that this unitary and hostile prison called Nigerian, cannot survive much longer.
“He is clearly not in touch with reality. His belief that kill­ing us in cold blood will force us to fall in love with his dream unitary empire, where injus­tice, nepotism and hate reign is laughable. Our message to him is short and precise: our freedom is unstoppable,” the group said.
