Lagos - The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has threatened to shutdown the socio-economic activities in the South-East region and beyond if government fails to conduct a referendum in the south-east geopolitical zone.
The group said the referendum will serve as a precursor to secession of the south east region.
MASSOB Director of Information, Samuel Edeson in a statement to newsmen in Enugu yesterday, said the group will use everything at its disposal to fight Nigeria government especially through civil disobedience.

He said MASSOB will drag former President Olusegun Obasanjo to the International Crime Court, ICC, for all the atrocities he committed against Biafra since 1970.
The statement reads "We are asking for justice for the massacre of Odi people, the Tiv, Jukum and the massacre of MASSOB members in Aba, Okigwe and Onitsha including the killing of six Igbo traders in Apo, Abuja. MASSOB will be taking her campaign to United States of America, United Kingdom, France and China embassies in Abuja. MASSOB therefore calls on all people of old eastern region, Delta, parts of Kogi and parts of Benue State to support the referendum that would soon take place in Biafraland. Our freedom is non negotiable”
