MASSOB Threatens To Stop 2019 Elections In South East, Kogi, Benue
That's all the Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has given the federal government to conduct a referendum or have the 2019 general elections disrupted in seven states.
States that could affected in this threat include - Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, Imo, Benue and Kogi.
The group in a statement by its National Director of Information, Samuel Edeson, said:
“MASSOB, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and other genuine pro- Biafran groups will mobilise the people against 2019 general election in all Biafran territory to boycott the election if federal government refuses to conduct a referendum for the exit of Biafra from Nigeria.
“We are not going to disrupt anybody, including electoral officers; they will move to their wards to conduct election, but they won’t see anybody. No Biafran will come out to vote that day. If somebody decides to stay indoors, you won’t force him to go out and vote. We are tired of Nigeria, there is no amount of restructuring that will change our vision to actualise Biafra.
“We don’t condemn our brothers, the politicians, who are agitating for restructuring, because that is what they believe in, but for us, ‘no Biafra, nothing else."
Last week, there was a sit a home order given by the IPOB which was observed in some states of the federation especially those in the south-east - Anambra and Enugu.
