MASSOB decries attack on Igbos, demands release of Eze Ndigbo


The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, on Monday, warned the Federal Government and security leaders not to push Ndigbo to the wall.

The group, in a statement signed by the National Director Of Information, MASSOB, Comrade Edeson Samuel also condemned the arrest of Eze Ndigbo, Chief Frederick Nwajagu in Ajao Estate, Lagos by the Department of State Service, DSS over alleged incitement.

The MASSOB leadership in the statement issued to newsmen in Abakaliki, Ebonyi, demanded the immediate release of Chief Frederick Nwajagu by DSS.

The group accused the Buhari-led administration of not hiding their perceived hatred for Ndigbo since 2015. It also blamed security agencies for failing to arrest suspected Tinubu’s thugs who allegedly led attacks, killings, burning and destroying of properties, goods, and shops belonging to Ndigbo in Lagos.

According to MASSOB, Nwajagu has committed no crime to warrant any arrest. It also blamed security agencies for failing to arrest Oba of Lagos, who threatened to throw Igbos into the lagoon if they failed to vote for the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the just concluded general election.

“In this year’s general election, MC Oluomo, a Yoruba man threatened to kill Igbos if they failed to vote for APC, which he later carried out in broad daylight, the same security agents that arrested Chief Fredrick did not arrest Oluomo and his gang of sponsored ‘criminals’, it said.

“Many Yoruba indigenes are living in igbo land, many own properties as landlords, many are doing their legitimate businesses and none of them has ever been attacked. Why must Ndigbo be attacked unprovoked, is it a crime that Ndigbo voted their choice?”

Furthermore, MASSOB warned Yoruba to desist from pushing Ndigbo to the wall and called on Igbo living in Lagos and other states of the federation to come home and invest in Igbo land.

“Igbo businessmen and traders should return to their root and get established in Igbo lands because their future in Nigeria state is being threatened by the people they have supported many times to be president of the entity called Nigeria”, the group stated.
