Imo - Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) insisted it would continue to pursue its secession agenda despite such campaigns suffering several setbacks.
Speaking during its 16th year anniversary celebration, MASSOB’s Acting Director of Information,. Sunny Okereafor said the group was committed to its non violent struggle to ensure that the dream of every Igbo of having the state of Biafra was achieved in due course.
Okereafor said MASSOB was determined to emancipate the Ndigbos despite what he described as the recent sabotage by some of his members who he alleged were being instigated by politicians to destabilize the movement.
“We know that the journey would not be easy from the onset, in as much as we are thanking Ndigbo for their support so far, we want to assure our brothers and sisters that we have determined to march on until victory is achieved,” he said.
Okereafor said that so far, the movement had given Ndigbo a voice by sustaining the struggle for the emancipation of the Igbo for which its late leader, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu gave his life for.
He listed MASSOB’s achievements within its 16 years of its existence to include a housing estate at Okwe in Onuimo LGA of Imo State where Biafran war veterans, who were left at Oji River in Enugu State as beggars, were being cared for and paid monthly stipends.
Others, according to him, include the placement of children of Biafran war veterans on scholarships up to university level and giving befitting burials to Biafran fallen heroes.
Okereafor further disclosed that the Movement was building a magnificent library named after Ojukwu, in Owerri, Imo state which he said, would contain all books and other equipment relating to Biafra to keep the Igbo man up to date with the details of the struggle.
