Nigeria’s Unity Negotiable- MASSOB

The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) said the unity of Nigeria was negotiable.

National leader of MAS­SOB, Chief Solomon Ordu Chukwu, argued that the series of agitations across the country, were enough reason to split the country.

Chukwu who spoke through the Movement’s National Director of Infor­mation, Sunday Okereafor, wondered if the country would fight another war be­fore secession.

“In the country now, we have Boko Haram insur­gents in the North East, who do not want Western education, but wants every­body to embrace Islam, kill­ing and causing havoc in the entire geo-political zone.

“Also, Fulani herdsmen are terrorising the entire country, killing, kidnapping and raping women at will, and destroying farmlands without government doing something. In the Niger Delta, we have the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), whose activities are akin to the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Del­ta (MEND), holding the na­tion’s economy in ransom.

“In South-East, MAS­SOB, in its non-violent campaign, has sustained the struggle. With all these agi­tations, how can it be said the the unity of the country is not negotiable? It needs to be negotiated because we cannot deceive ourselves that the country is one,” Chukwu said.

He restated MASSOB’s non-violent position, stress­ing that, as a non-political organisation, it would not defend or support the activi­ties of politicians.
