MASSOB-Nnamdi Kanu has betrayed Biafra, accepted Restructuring

On Saturday, August 26, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) accused the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu of ‘shaking hands‘ with the federal government and therefore compromised the struggle to achieve an independent state of Biafra after he met with some politicians.

According to Punch, Mr Sunday Okereafor, the MASSOB National Director of Information, said in an interview that they would continue the struggle through non-violent means and they would not be deterred by IPOB.

Okereafor said:“IPOB has compromised the struggle; the IPOB leader (Nnamdi Kanu) has had a handshake with the Federal Government. He has embraced restructuring. What are we going to restructure in Nigeria? We are saying no to that.
“He (Kanu) has told the world that he has compromised and he has deceived millions of people. But we are insisting that it is Biafra or nothing. We are storming Onitsha on September 13 to celebrate our 18th anniversary.

“The IPOB leader is saying that after restructuring of Nigeria, he will abandon the struggle. He has a hidden agenda. He has access to politicians, senators and governors. He is in the struggle for his selfish interest. But we are telling the Federal Government that on Biafra we stand. No matter the intimidation, the struggle continues.”

When asked about the recent warning by President Buhari on groups clamoring for disunity, he said the President could have been referring to Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen killing and destroying people’s farmlands.

Explaining, he said:“Our struggle is based on non-violence. We (MASSOB) are not among those President (Muhammadu) Buhari mentioned that they have crossed the red lines because we have been non-violent in our struggle.

“The groups threatening Nigeria’s unity are Boko Haram, Fulani herdsmen, who are his brothers. Look at it now, Boko Haram is looking for autonomy and the Fulani herdsmen are not interested in the unity of Nigeria and they are killing people all over Nigeria. Yet, none of them has been prosecuted.
“We have continued to tell the Nigerian Government to hold a sovereign national conference. Must we go to war? Must we stay together in Nigeria?

“Boko Haram is saying that they want Islamic Republic and the Fulani herdsmen are going everywhere and killing people and destroying farmlands. Buhari knows who he is talking to; it cannot be MASSOB because we are non-violent.”
According to reports, the group’s position was made public in a statement signed by one of its leaders, Uchenna Madu.
