‘Buratai Cannot Stop Biafra’
A group of Ndigbos is still supporting the Biafra Agenda.
They say the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Buratai cannot stop the emergence of an independent Biafra.
Buratai was alleged to have said that the creation of the state of Biafra would not happen in his lifetime.
The group, which said they cannot be prevented from demanding for an independent Biafra compared Buratai's comments to what Leaders of India said before Pakistan was created.
Meanwhile, the National Secretary of MASSOB, Comrade Ibem Ugwuoke Ibem, cautioned Buratai to desist from speaking against the emergence of Biafra.
Ibem, stated that MASSOB is a non-violent group and asked why the Chief of Army staff should not see the group as legitimate.
He said: “The comments of Buratai and his cohorts cannot stop us. We are already in the match.
"Nothing can deter us. What does one expect from one employed by one’s master? Buratai overzealousness to satisfy his master (The Presidency) wills always overshadow him.
“I can liken Buratai’s comments to those spoken by leaders of Indonesia before their country broke into two and East Timor was created. I still maintain that Biafra will soon emerge out of Nigeria.”
Nigeria suffered a 3-year civil war between 1967-1970 when the Eastern Region seceded.
