Nigeria's pro-Biafra agitators declare ceasefire

09 December 2015, 17:40

Abuja - The Movement for the Actualisation of a Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) have announced a ceasefire on protests in the South-East and some parts of the South-South geopolitical zones in Nigeria.

The groups were masterminds of series of protests, which rocked the South-East and the South – South recently.

They were protesting the continued detention of the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu was arrested on October 1, 2015, at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos on his arrival from the United Kingdom.

The continued detention of Kanu had sparked solidarity protests in several parts of the South -East and beyond, including Onitsha, Aba, Nnewi and Port Harcourt.

The groups in a joint resolution on Tuesday resolved to halt demonstrations and protests to pave way for what they called the much-published dialogue on Nnamdi Kanu’s release.

The statement signed by Ugwuoke Ibem Ugwuoke, national secretary of MASSOB, and Emma Powerful, IPOB spokesman, noted that the decision to halt the protests is not out of cowardice but a proof of maturity and professionalism as a decent self-determination groups.

They issued an ultimatum to the Federal Government to prove their seriousness and sincerity on the much-published dialogue on Kanu’s release.

The groups, however, said they will continue with their non-violence self-determination on Biafra.
