Movememt for Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and Biafra Independence Movement (BIM) havecalled on the United Nations and other world leaders to divide Nigeria into six geo-political zones to solve problems facing the nation.
The group said granting the six geo-political zones in Nigeria self rule would be the only solution to the many problems in the country.
In a release signed by the Director of Information of the pro-Biafra group, Mr. Chris Mocha, the two groups appealed to the UN and other super powers to consider the lives of people that are killed on a daily basis in Nigeria arising from the insurgency in the North East and Fulani herdsmen said to be allegedly affiliated to ISIS and Boko Haram.
Mocha said the proposed nations inlcude South East, (Biafra), South South (Niger Delta), North East, North West, South West, (Oduduwa) and North- Central.
He stressed that no amount of preaching on nationalism can change Nigeria as it is today.
Mocha said when the proposed zones are granted independence, assets of the citizens of the different countries will be protected by international laws, just as bilateral agreements will guide the future relationship of the new republics.
The group, however, insisted that several members of BIM/MASSOB were killed last week during the Biafra anniversary at Nkpor and Onitsha.
“While all the members of BIM/ MASSOB in Anambra central senatorial district including Nkpor town in Idemili North Local Government Area celebrated at Ifite Dunu, our counterparts in Anambra North including Onitsha converged at the zonal secretariat, project site at Nteje in Oyi council area of Anambra State.
