The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, over the weekend, launched new Biafra motorcycle plate number in Enugu.

MASSOB leader, Chief Raph Uwazurike, who performed the official launching in Nsukka called on Ndigbo to see the new Biafra plate number as their identity and as one of the criteria for the realization of freedom.

Uwazuruike, represented by Chief Larry Odimma, Aba Regional Administrator of MASSOB, enjoined members not to be afraid of purchasing the plate number.

“I am here on the mandate of our leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike to launch this plate number, which is aimed at identifying Biafrans and forestalling criminal activities among people who hide under our name to perpetrate evil”, he said.

According to Odimma, the plate number would be sold to people with unquestionable character.

He said, “the national leadership of MASSOB applauds the freedom being enjoyed here in Enugu State unlike what we witness in places like Aba, Ontisha and Umuahia, where our members are constantly harassed by security agents”.

He sued for continuity of peace and harmony in the conduct of MASSOB activities in the state

“We urge you to continue in our vision of non- violence and non-arms carrying as we march towards the take off of Biafra government”, he added.

In his remark, the Regional Administrator of MASSOB in Nsukka, Mr. Kenneth Okwudili said the region expects everyone who shares in the dream of MASSOB to comply and get the plate number

“We expect every true and honest Igbo man with motorcycle to come forward and buy the plate number; this is our identity as Biafrans and we have to embrace it”, he stated.

He further noted that since the creation of Nsukka into a region in 2010, they had managed and sustained the struggle of MASSOB, adding that the launching of the plate number was part of their contribution to the sustenance and struggle for the actualization of the sovereign state of Biafra.
“MASSOB members will continue to partner and support the ideas of the Joshua of our time, Chief Dr. Ralph Uwazuruike in his course of maintaining non violence in actualizing Biafra”, he assured.

DailyPost learnt that the MASSOB plate number costs N1, 500.

Is this a turning point? MASSOB suspends seven administrators over Onitsha clash.



Following previous Monday’s clash between members of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, (MASSOB) and traders at the Old Motor Spare Parts, Mgbuka, in the commercial city of Onitsha, seven regional administrators of the movement have been suspended by its leadership over their alleged involvement in the fracas.
The leader of MASSOB, Ralph Uwazuruike, disclosed this on Thursday after an emergency meeting where he also inaugurated a peace and reconciliatory committee to meet with the market leaders over the crisis.
Uwazuruike further regretted the recent clash between his men and traders, adding that the seven suspended regional administrators were given marching orders over their suspected complicity in the market crisis.
He also apologised to the traders over the unfortunate attack on them by some overzealous MASSOB members, adding that the peace committee led by the National Director of Information, Uchenna Madu, and a Catholic Priest will soon meet with market leaders to find a way of settling the matter.
“After our meeting, we resolved that a panel of inquiry be set up to look into the activities of MASSOB in the commercial city of Onitsha and the constant clashes with traders and security agents, and anybody that is found wanting will be dealt with and expelled from the organisation. The aim is to bring sanity in the struggle; we remained the only genuine pressure group that is championing the true cause of Ndigbo and, therefore, cannot be the same to oppress them. I have ordered for immediate suspension of seven regional administrators in Onitsha because of their roles in the constant clash,” he said.
It was gathered that the affected regional administrators are Stephen Ahaneku in charge of Onitsha South, Emmanuel Omenka, Ogbaru, Vincent Ilo, Onitsha North, Donatus Nweke, Anambra West, Osondu Okwaraeke, Anambra East, and Innocent Kalu of Oyi regions.

Ndigbo to head to ICC over Biafra massacre.



THE proposed plan by Professor Ango Abdullahi’s Northern Elders Forum to drag former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Azubuike Ihejirika, to the International

Criminal Court of Justice, ICC, in Hague over alleged killing of civilians at Baga town, Borno State, has drawn the ire of Ndigbo who have indicated interest to take Nigeria to the same court for the massacre of two million Igbo people during the civil war.

Prof. Abdullahi’s group had recently said that plans were in top gear to drag the former army chief and six others to ICC over their alleged involvement in the killing of innocent civilians at Baga, while the military engaged Boko Haram insurgents living in the midst of civilians.

Chukwumerije speaks
But reacting to the alleged plan yesterday, Senator Uche Chukwumerije said that the purported plan to take the former COAS to ICC would be a good opportunity for the people of the South East and Anioma in Delta State to drag the country to the world court for the massacre of over two million Ndigbo during the Nigeria/Biafra civil war.

Chukwumerije, who was in-charge of Biafran Information during the war, said: “The plan of Northern Elders Forum to drag the immediate past Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Azubuike Ihejirika, and six others to International Criminal Court of Justice in Hague is capable of unleashing a national ill-wind that will do no one (including Prof. Ango Abdullahi’s group) any good in this federation.

“The approach of the group to a national problem is selective, patently biased apparently in search of preconceived culprits, pointedly indifferent to the demands of national unity, and highly provocative to the sensibilities of all who genuinely desire the unity and stability of this federation.

Opening the Pandora Box
“As Ango Abdullahi’s team opens the doors and walks into the hall of the world court, let them realize that they have at last opened the Pandora’s Box.
“The indigenes of Odi, Zaki-Biam and Katsina Ala will in quick succession file into the hall. At the same time, Ndigbo of South East and Anioma will dust their files and head for Hague.

“Let it be emphasized ab initio that senseless sacrifice of a human life is indefensible. Violations of human rights have remained the bane of Africa. A society that has no respect for human life is nearer the status of a community of animals.

“But the situation in the universally acknowledged difficult terrain of a borderless war such as terrorism, counter terrorism and guerilla-like conflicts offers a unique challenge. The motives of Prof. Ango Abdullahi and co are obviously beyond concerns about violations of human rights.

“Every citizen (including Prof. Ango Abdullahi) knows that the anti-terrorism campaign in the North is a joint military operation under the command of the Chief of Defence Staff. In singling out Lt. General Ihefirika, the then Army boss, the likes of Prof. Ango Abdullahi are merely betraying old prejudices and embarking on a new hazardous search for bad names to hang hated dogs.

“Besides, the fact that Prof. Ango Abdullahi and co sprung into action immediately Lt. General Ihejirika and six others left their commands has revealed the depth of long-smoldering resentment of the campaign against Boko Haram by self-proclaimed leaders of the North.”

Baga and Hague adjudication
Senator Chukwumerije wondered why the Northern Elders Forum would single out the Baga incident for Hague’s adjudication.
He said further: “We have seen in the past cases of wholesale massacres which were not only more gruesome than Baga’s but proven as true unlike. Ango Abdullahi and co kept silent.

“There was the case of Odi in which a whole community was decimated. There was the case of Zaki-Biam. There was the case of Katsina Ala. If Odi did not arouse the conscience of Ango Abdullahi because the people do not belong to his hallowed Northern enclave, how about Zaki-biam and Katsina Ala?”

Release bodies of our members, says MASSOB.



The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) yesterday demanded the bodies of three of its members allegedly killed by soldiers during the raid on its security office on the Onitsha-Owerri Road, Onitsha, Anambra State.

MASSOB leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, who addressed reporters, said the release became imperative, following worries by the deceased’s families and MASSOB that the bodies be released for a befitting funeral, to prevent their spirits from roaming.

MASSOB also demanded the release of those arrested before, during and after the raid, who included, Friday Igiri, Kenneth Nwabueze and Ezeigwe.


The group’s leader spoke through his personal assistant, Emmanuel Omenka.

His words: “We demand the release of the bodies for funeral. We are surprised that soldiers always involve themselves in MASSOB’s affairs. For four days, they raided our security office at Mgbuka junction and arrested three of our members. They should tell us our offence.”

He added: “They should stop disturbing our members.”

Rethinking the Amalgamation of 1914 By Malcolm Fabiyi.


Malcolm Fabiyi

Malcolm Fabiyi

The occasion of the 100th anniversary of Frederick Lugard’s amalgamation of the Northern and Southern protectorates of Nigeria has reopened discussions about whether that action was a monumental error – one which has led to the entrapment within the same country of ethnicities that would otherwise never have been in union with one another.

There is no question that the amalgamation of 1914 was intended to benefit the British. Its goal was solely to reduce colonial administration costs by consolidating the two civil service operations of the Northern and Southern protectorates into one. Frederick Lugard, the architect of the amalgamation was an unapologetic advocate of colonial grandeur and a fervent believer in British Imperialism. Lugard served as a colonial administrator in Nigeria, Hong Kong, and Uganda – spreading his imperialist ideas and dutifully serving his Queen wherever he went. Like most of the Colonial actors of that period, Lugard was insultingly paternalistic. In his book the “The Dual Mandate in British Tropical Africa,” Lugard likened the “virtues and defects of this race-type (Africans)” to those of “attractive Children.” If there were any benefits that would accrue to the new Nigerians, those gains would be merely incidental. To attempt to interpret Lugard’s action in any other way will not be supported by the facts.

However, the fact that the amalgamation was not instituted with the interest of Nigerians at heart does not imply that there was nothing about amalgamation that could benefit the inhabitants of the newly formed nation that became known as Nigeria.  Was there anything about the amalgamation of 1914 that enhanced any movements towards unity that Nigerians were themselves already working towards? Were there any attempts by the peoples of the lands now known as Nigeria, to forge unions – through peaceful engagement or conquest – with each other prior to Lugard’s actions?

Nigeria made sense to the British for the three primary reasons that motivate all expansionist conquests. Firstly, the Nigerian nation offered lands that were rich in minerals, superbly arable and fit for agriculture and animal husbandry; rivers and oceans that teemed with aquatic bounties. Secondly, the Nigerian nation offered inland waterways and unfettered access to seas that allowed for the movement of persons and goods. Thirdly, Nigeria offered an abundance of hardworking and enterprising people who would transform the factors of production with which Nigeria was abundantly blessed, into products and services that could be taxed.

The North had ample land and mineral resources. Spanning three vegetation types – the Sahel, Sudan and guinea savannah – the North’s lands could sustain a diverse variety of crops. Grains, cereals, cotton and legumes could be farmed in the Sahel and Sudan Savannah regions; Yams and fruit crops were especially suited to the guinea savannah. The extensive grasslands of the North, and its dry, low humidity climate were excellent for cattle rearing.  The South had land that was particularly suited to the farming of yams, cassava and oil palms. Its forests offered an abundance of timber and jute, and its lands were especially conducive to growing cash crops like Cocoa. The South also had an abundance of coal – a fuel necessary for providing the energy to be used for transportation and for production.

While the North offered lands, minerals and people, it had no access to the oceans. While the South had an abundant of enterprising citizens, it did not have the diversity of lands and climes that the North offered.

By amalgamating the Northern and Southern protectorates, Lugard could consolidate the disparate benefits that the two protectorates offered. By consolidating the colonial civil service into one and reducing administrative costs, Lugard was able to obtain what modern productivity experts would call synergies – benefits that provide higher gains than would have been obtained by a simple addition of the benefits offered by the sum of the parts.

What Lugard and the British saw in Nigeria over a century ago has not changed. If anything, in the intervening century, Nigeria has become a much more viable proposition. It turns out that the North does not only have Tin and Columbite, but its lands also contain enormous reserves of Iron ore, Tantalite (the source of tantalum – a major component of capacitors used in cell phones, laptops, DVD players, TV sets, Medical equipment, etc.), Talc, Gypsum, Gold, Kaolin, Lead, Zinc, and Gemstones. The South, it has since been discovered, has an abundance of Oil and Gas, Bitumen and Gold, in addition to Coal. Apart from Oil and Gas, most of these mineral resources remain largely untapped and underutilized.

While it is proper to credit Lugard with the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern protectorates, it is wrong to ascribe to Lugard the original idea of Nigerian unification. Long before Frederick Lugard stepped foot in Nigeria, Nigerians had looked across the Twin Rivers – the Niger and Benue – and imagined the unification of the tribes on either sides of the divide. Lugard was a century away from setting foot in Nigeria when Dan Fodio launched a Jihad in 1804 which was aimed amongst other things at extending Hausa Fulani hegemony across all of Nigeria. About 400 years before the Dan Fodio Jihad of the 1800s, the Yoruba had occupied Nupe in the heart of the Middle Belt in a wave of expansion of the Oyo Empire. Yoruba mythology suggests that the deified Yoruba King Sango, son of Oranmiyan, was born to a Nupe Princess.

While the Igbo were historically a largely republican people, who spurned empire building, their cultural and economic influence extended well beyond their South Eastern enclave to reach the Southern extremities of Nigeria.   Like other Nigerian tribes, the Igbo also have a story of origin that includes stories of migration from the Upper Egypt region of Northern Africa. Ethnic admixture, cultural exchange, trans-border migrations of people and products, has long been a part of the DNA of the people that inhabit the land called Nigeria. All of these facts make a strong case that the original idea for the possibility of interchange, admixture, and unity of the peoples of the Nigerian nation was initiated historically, by Nigerians themselves – sometimes through trade, but also by conquest.

Lugard’s amalgamation therefore was no more than a convenient fast-tracking of a project that Nigerians had themselves set in motion over 500 years earlier.  By the time of the amalgamation, Nigeria was probably well on its way to unification through conquest by the Hausa Fulani. Dan Fodio’s Jihad had already claimed all of the core North, and large swathes of the Nigerian middle Belt – including Nupe land, Auchi in the Benin Empire; Ilorin, the Kogi highlands and Old Oyo in the Oyo Empire. The truncation of that possible historical pathway by the British implies that we will never know what Nigeria could have been, had Dan Fodio’s army swept onwards to the Sea. We will also never know how far the Igbo, the Yoruba, the Ijaw, the Nupe, and other groups would have gotten in their quest to extend their reaches beyond their frontiers.

To speak of the amalgamation as the “accident of 1914” is to hold the view that there were no plausible geopolitical considerations that could have led to the emergence of the Nigerian nation in its present form. History is clear in its verdict that Nigeria’s constituent nationalities have long had expansionist aims that would have ultimately led to the unification of Nigeria.

Nigeria was, and remains a viable proposition. Nigeria’s lands remain arable and superbly fit for agriculture. Its inland and coastal waters offer rich potential for aquaculture. Since Lugard’s time, its population has grown almost tenfold from an estimated 17 million people in 1914 to about 160 million – increasingly literate, and extremely creative, energetic and entrepreneurial people. In the 100 years since Lugard’s amalgamation, the riches in Nigeria’s earth and the numbers and dynamism of its people, have exploded.  Its potential is more immense, than Lugard could have ever imagined.

Nigeria’s tragedy is that its people, particularly its leaders, have not been able to turn the potentials offered by the amalgamation of 1914 into enduring benefits. The amalgamation brought Nigeria’s constituent nationalities into a melting pot that was intended to distil its disparate peoples into one united country. Nigerians have so far been unable to birth a more united nation out of the crucible of amalgamation. That failure has nothing to do with Lugard, or with the amalgamation. It is primarily a failure of Nigeria’s leaders – especially the triumvirate that led Nigeria to independence. For all their brilliance and erudition, none of those three – Awolowo, Ahmadu Bello and Azikiwe – can be called a father of the nation. They did more for their tribes than they ever did for Nigeria. They were all sadly incapable of forming a nation. At the end of their two decade control of Nigeria’s politics from 1946 to 1966, these men had managed to create a country whose inhabitants identified themselves first as members of their regions and ethnicities, before they were citizens of Nigeria. It must be conceded that the three leaders of the Nigerian nation created fully functional and effective regional governments. The period of their leadership of their various regions has been unrivalled since, in terms of the real growth engendered in schools, public health facilities, public infrastructure, and economic development.

As Nigeria enters into its second centennial, the question that still lingers in every mind is whether the Nigerian nation will make it. Will this marriage survive? There are two answers to that question. If Nigeria continues along its current path, where charlatans and ethnic jingoists jostle for power and place their interests above that of the nation; Nigeria will die, if not a sudden death, then a slow, painful death that will include bloodshed and internecine strife.  However, if leaders who are genuine in their intentions and nationalistic in their outlook emerge, and find a way to win the confidence of the Nigerian people, a strong and virile Nigeria will yet emerge.

The challenge of nation building and the capacity to achieve true unity is best exemplified by the South African nation and its timeless hero, Nelson Mandela. The majority black and colored people of South Africa were victims of the racist policy of Apartheid for most of the 20th century. It is easy to forget that Nelson Mandela was sent to jail, for his fight against Apartheid, and for his struggles on behalf of the black and colored people of South Africa. After his release in 1990, Mandela began his service for South Africa. He championed forgiveness as a national principle, and pushed for the new South Africa to be racially inclusive – a true rainbow nation. Mandela became a champion for the rights of the minority whites. It was not a popular position to take, and there were many black South Africans who vilified him, and accused him of selling out. The task of leadership is however not one that always takes the path of public adulation and praise. The Mandela that was jailed in 1963 was a leader of black South Africa. The Mandela that died in December 2013 was the father of a rainbow nation. Nigeria needs leaders in the mold of Mandela – selfless men and women of clear vision and strong will.

Divided as we might imagine ourselves to be, our differences pale in comparison with nations like South Africa and the United States. We must learn from the examples that those nations offer, how lessons from a painful past, can be used to build a more perfect union.  We might be Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba, Ijaw and Ibibio – but we are all black and brown sons and daughters of Africa.  We have none of the racial complexities of nations like South Africa and the United States. We might complain about the dominance by certain groups of our national life, however, no Nigerian ethnicity has been systematically denied its humanity and consigned to second class citizenship through laws and policies instituted by the State.

In the new world order in which we live, where global conflicts are no longer ideological but based on religious cleavages and value systems, Nigeria more than any other nation on earth, offers the world a natural social experiment for how nations must address the new challenge of our times – the so called “Clash of Civilizations.” With its near 50:50 split along religious lines, its diversity of ethnicities and fledgling democracy, Nigeria is an object lesson in nation building.

The amalgamation of 1914 was no mistake. Here in Nigeria, we have a unique opportunity to demonstrate the workability of the African dream of unification. What other nation in all of Africa combines within its polity, all of the contradictory factors that plagues modern day Africa. Feudalism exists side by side with an emergent democratic culture. Superstition and religious fatalism inhabits the same space with an emergent technological modernization. The Nigerian state stacks Traditionalism versus modernism; Community versus individualism. The Nigerian experiment is also the global black experiment. Black people everywhere need a success story from the continent. South Africa, despite its impressive technological and economic returns cannot claim the pride of place that Nigeria occupies in the black sub-conscious. The world is rooting for Nigeria to succeed. As the world’s largest back nation, Nigeria’s fate – its progress or the lack thereof, will determine not just how the nation is viewed, but how black people everywhere are regarded.

As we enter into our 2nd century as a nation, there are a number of small gains that we can celebrate. Faulted as our democracy is, we have managed not one, but two successful democratic transitions. We have shed blood for this union in a brutal Civil War. We have demonstrated in Western Nigeria that Islam and Christianity can survive and thrive in the same space – a lesson that the world, and the rest of the country, would do well to learn. We have laid to rest the myth that Nigerian leadership is not accessible to minority ethnicities. We simply need to demonstrate that Nigeria’s leaders can work for the good of all Nigerians, and to define for ourselves the terms under which we, Nigeria’s peoples, will engage with one another.

For one hundred years, we have managed to move this socio-political experiment forward, even though it has tottered on the brink of collapse at times. Faulted as the Nigerian experiment is, it has blessed the world with poets, authors, jurists, doctors, scientists, diplomats, athletes, footballers; it has brought an end to fratricidal wars in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Darfur, Cote D’Ivoire and Congo, and spear headed regional and continental growth. Nigeria can yet be salvaged. What needs to be done is to address the structural faults that the union presently has, and then to forge ahead with the urgent task of catching up with the rest of a world that has continued to move ahead, in leaps and bounds.


Should have Killed All Biafrans When We Had The Chance Buhari, Obasanjo and Co.Regrets; “You May Not Survive This” – Obasanjo Tells Jonathan.

OBJ Jonathan horror meal

While the country [Nigeria] grapple with the oily grips from the quibble between a political godfather and a political godson, little is made of the actual behind the scene factors that led to the crack in the formerly rosy relationship. Information available to through sources close to the principal actors within the warring camps reveal what appears an unspoken truth – that dates back to the fall of Biafra to the Nigeria troops led by the then Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo in Owerri, the then capital of the federal republic of Biafra.
According to the consortium of sources who spoke on the true causative factors responsible for the turn in demeanor in the former People Democratic Party [PDP] godfather, General Olusegun Obasanjo towards President Jonathan, indicate that the chief reason for the effort to halt Jonathan’s presidency before 2015 points to the formerly agreed upon policy towards the former eastern region – which later became the Biafra territory – that then lost the war the Nigerian troops.
According to a competent source, the self – acclaimed victors of the Nigerian civil war, the likes of Buhari, Babangida, Obasanjo, Gowon, Murtala Mohammed and company – had an agreed upon policy of under-development of the region – to aide sedated the urge for another agitation group to find its footing. The policy was particularized for the south east zone.
Such policies focused on denying the region of an international airport, ability to source crude oil and refine, ability to access international trade and technology – among other sensitive developmental vectors. Through the successive government that followed after the military fall of the Biafra effort, the policy was implemented without error. Obasanjo’s regime during the civilian era ensured that the marginalization policy remained unchanged.
The talk of locating an international airport at each geopolitical zone in Nigeria saw a defiant Obasanjo when the discourse included South East region.

The Obasanjo regime also saw the placement of an oil refinery in the South East as going against the agreed upon policy of the winners of the Nigeria/Biafra war. The exploration of crude oil deposits around the Kogi/Enugu/Anambra belt remained abandoned during his regime.
The surprise and uncharacteristic coming of Dr. Goodluck Ebelemi Jonathan to the presidential seat brought an anomaly into the equation. The said owners of the country did not expect what his presidency may result to – as per the agreed upon policy towards the south east region. Obasanjo had promised his “co-owners” that he would be able to “control” the excesses of President Jonathan – “that Goodluck was his boy” and will be held with a short leash. Obasanjo’s northern partners were able to rest their nerves in that President Jonathan will serve a mere one term and that by 2015, he will step down from the mantle of leadership and allowed for the owners of Nigeria to continue along the path already set out by General Gowon.
A source close to Obasanjo told that the former head of state had stated in serious discussions that Jonathan chances putting Nigeria at risk over his conversion of Enugu Airport to International Airport because of the history of the area. He also mentioned the opening of the Orient Petroleum oil drilling and refining services as near treasonable – because it allows the region access to precious cash commodity [as crude oil] should the region chose to declare independence from the Nigerian Union again. The source pointed out that Obasanjo sees himself as a defender of the present day Nigeria dating from post Nigerian civil war. The sources continues that Obasanjo sees himself as responsible for ensuring that the country stays together as one unit. In his mind, the eagerness of the Jonathan presidency to ease the tariff placed against the former Biafran region points to a dangerous precedence that may be copied by other leaders – if not checkmated.
The recent open letter to the President of the federal republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck E. Jonathan by the former president, General Olusegun Obasanjo is believed by our source to be part of the program to halt the trend of easing the economic blockade against the south east and south south region. One of the principal fears – according to the source – concerns the upcoming national census exercise scheduled for 2016. The recent public utterances by the former top boss of the national population commission, Odumegwu, stating that the previous census figures were either wrong or falsified, exacerbated the fear harbored by the self-proclaimed owners of the country. It lead to the likes of Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso into issuing threats to the President charging that he sack the census commission boss – or face the consequences. President Jonathan bowed and unceremoniously sacked Odumegwu.
But Jonathan’s body language of wanting to continue his leadership past 2015 has the former president and one-time coup-plotter unsettled. Both President Jonathan and Obasanjo are reported to have met severally behind closed doors over the upcoming 2015 elections – with Obasanjo impressing on Jonathan that his desire to contest will throw the country into bloody revolution. At a recent secret meeting in Abuja [not Aso Villa], the two were said to have met at a home around the home of high personality in Asokoro – where Obasanjo continued to remind President Jonathan that he will be embarking on a potentially catastrophic mistake should he continue to be adamant about the 2015 venture. Some of Obasanjo’s northern partners were reported to be present at the meeting – when President Jonathan that a truly democratic Nigeria must not be allowed to degenerate to bloody chaos over what is constitutional rights and freedoms. The President was reported to have made it categorically clear that Nigeria remains a free democratic society for every citizen regardless of which geopolitical zone he originates “justice must fear no evil” – to which Obasanjo retorted, “You may not survive this”.

Ralph Uwazuruike’s MASSOB clashes with Nigeria Police in Onitsha One killed, 11 injured.



The members of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, on Friday clashed with the police in Anambra State, leaving one person dead, and eleven others in various degrees of injuries.
A source told DailyPost that trouble started when a police team on surveillance flagged down a motorist along the ever busy Onitsha/Owerri road in Onitsha, which drew the attention of MASSOB members that were controlling the traffic.
MASSOB members have been involved in voluntary traffic control since the yuletide.
As they intervened, there was a heated argument which resulted in assault between the MASSOB and police, prompting one of the policemen to shoot a MASSOB member and he died instantly.
Consequently, the MASSOB members in anger barricaded the ever-busy Onitsha-Owerri road for two hours and made bonfire with fairly used tyres forcing traffic to divert to the Obosi by-pass.
Meanwhile, the corpse of the dead member was said to have been taken to the Awada Police Station.
When contacted, the Onitsha Police Area Commander, Mr. Benjamin Wordu confirmed the incident but said that trouble started when MASSOB and a rival group had a bloody clash.
He said on hearing of the incident, he dispatched a team of policemen to the troubled area, adding that normalcy had since returned.

MASSOB urges police to release body of slain member.


Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has called on the police in Anambra State to release to them for burial, the corpse of one of their members, one Chimezie Anigbata, who they alleged was brutally killed by the police.

The group said it was a taboo in Igbo land for a man to die and not to be properly buried.

MASSOB equally called on the police in the state to free three of their members; Uchenna Ajogwu, Kelechi Nkwuda and Ifeanyi Agbom, who they alleged have been in detention since October this year.

The organisation’s Regional Administrator for Awka North, Anthony Nwodo, who made the call in Aba, Abia State, said Anigbata was killed by the police on

October 14 as they were holding a meeting in Onitsha, when the three members were also arrested.

Nwodo, who said he was in Aba to avoid being arrested by the police in Anambra State, claimed the police were after him and that it was unfortunate that the police could kill Anigbata after MASSOB members had arrested and handed over to them (the police), one Chinedu who impersonated a MASSOB official and was demolishing a building at Otigba 33, in Oyi Local Government.

Nwodo alleged that in an attempt to evade arrest by the MASSOB members, the police branded them kidnappers and charged them to court. He said the court discharged and acquitted them but that police re-arrested and re-branded them armed robbers and has since detained the three persons.

He appealed to President Goddluck Jonathan and the Inspector-General of Police, to as a matter of urgency, not only order the officer in charge of SARS in Anambra State to free the three MASSOB members held incommunicado since October 14, but also to release the corpse of Anigbata to them for burial.

BILIE Joins Yoruba Declared For Independence Of Southern Nigeria.


BILIE Human Rights Initiative has declared that they are no longer fighting for the restoration of Biafra rather that they are figting for the independence of  ‘Southern Nigeria‘ state( A Country that will made up of Yoruba and Igbos) , this declaration has made Biafras to call on all people that are with Bilie or

intending to join BILIE to stop as they are now an instrument working agains the Biafra restoration just like MASSOB and Ralph UwazuruikeIt is time to ask all genuine Buifrans that we made in the past when we were working with BILIE to Join BILIE to withdrwa their membership. BILIE not only compromised, but have started a new very dangerous moves that have never been heard of in the history of Biafra restoration quest. See how they have changed from BILIE to APC and now SOUTHERN NIGERIA.Carol Munday reports her encounter with a BILIE Officer who is also a Nigeria security agent : Who ever is for Biafra and was/is with BHRI plans, should have removed themselves already, and cut communications coming from them. I am well aware of the compromise within BHRI as sad as it may be, let me confirm again Nigerian security forces and Rochas Okorocha are now behind key members of BHRI and are steering all of them and their connections to support APC, the person who has been working with them, even mailing for them, is a Yoruba Nigerian security forces officer who today contacted me and after threatening me and found I was not so easily worried about nonsense, then asked tomeet me in London, to discuss to come to an agreement with them for a ‘one southern Nigeria’, they don’t want Biafra and say it can not be, they will use the law to stop this, they feel a ‘southern Nigeria will be the answer’, they want to try even to bribe me with minerals (oil) into supporting this group. Human life is worth more than anything, even if it is the price of a few to save many!! The UN convention 2007 allows the indigenous people of Biafra the right to self determination, do not let anyone tell you, you are wrong or breaking the law, as even Nigeria is a member of the UN.Withdraw your BILIE membership now or you will probably be islamised before you know it. We Biafrans want to make it clear once again that we are not working with BILIE anymore and will never be. They have been compromised  and we have first hand information now to prove that they compromised due to APC influence and as we have made out stand clear, APC is an Hausa/Yoruba party hellbent on turning all Biafrans into Muslim. We can only stop this from happening by separating from Nigeria as an unadulterated indigenous people of Biafra. Join Radio Biafra and the indigenous people of Biafra towards the restoration of Biafra. We are the one with majority and we are way ahead of all these minor groups like BILIE and MASSOB that APC have hoodwinked into accepting Islam. Our mission is to restore Biafra on nothing! No Compromise! Every Biafarn should have the right of freedom of expression and  and equal rights, we should never be slaves in our own land. Follow the right people now!Once again withdraw your BILIE membership, if you choose not to RBL will not be liable for asking you to join BILIE in the past should you be harmed while following BILIE. The revolution that will follow will be consequential and you are once again ask to join the Indeginous people and get among your people. BILIE is now infiltrated by Hausa and Yoruba and this is a very bad mix.

God bless Biafra.By Carol Munday and Biafra Galaxy – See more at:
