- MASSOB accuses FG of killing defenceless Biafra agitators
- Threatens to drag FG to the Hague
- Faults governors of the south east for not speaking up
The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign States of Biafra (MASSOB) has accused the federal government of trying to instigate a civil war through the killing of pro-Biafra agitators.
The group alleged that soldiers were in the habit of shooting people who were gathered for prayers to incite the people of the south east and south-south to war.
According to Vanguard, the national director of information of MASSOB, Sunny Okereafor, lamented that the killings of pro Biafra protesters by security agents has become unbearable.
The group threatened to drag the government to the International Court of Justice, ICJ, at the Hague over alleged killings of pro defenceless Biafra protesters.
Okereafor said: “These are antics we know too well. We refuse to be deceived. The people of the former Eastern region have been thoroughly provoked. MASSOB will not keep quiet at these senseless killings and have decided to let the international community know about the atrocities being committed by Nigerian security agents.
“MASSOB have concluded plans to take our case to the International Court of Justice, Hague. We have compiled our evidences on the killings and the dramatis personae. Our group will not keep quiet on these acts of killings of innocent citizens.”
Okereafor faulted the governors of the south east zone for allegedly failing to speak against the killing pro-Biafra agitators in their states.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian army plans to relocate one of its brigades to Aba, Abia state, to stop the increasing protest the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign States of Biafra (MASSOB).
Brigadier General Lawrence Fejokwu, commanding officer of 14 Brigade Ohafia, noted this adding that Aba had become a hot spot because of the activities of the Biafrans campaigning for the actualization of a sovereign state of Biafra, as well as the revival of kidnapping and sundry crimes.
