MASSOB threatened to instigate violence if the government does not heed to its call.
The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has called on the Federal Government to allow the Igbo people decide by vote, their continued stay as part of Nigeria.
MASSOB threatened to make the country ungovernable if the government does not heed to its call.
Punch reports that a statement issued by the National Director of Information, MASSOB, Samuel Edeson, said “MASSOB and other pro-Biafra agitators will make Nigeria ungovernable if the Nigerian government failed to conduct referendum in Eastern Nigeria.
“We shall use everything at our disposal to fight the Nigerian government, especially through civil disobedience.
“We are going to call for ‘sit at home’ in all Biafran land and Lagos.”
You will recall that MASSOB and a faction of the Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People (MOSOP) recently announced that they are partnering to actualise the struggle for a Biafra nation.
