Any Group Inciting Yoruba Against Igbo Will Fail, MASSOB Says



The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), says any person or group inciting the Yoruba against Igbo in the name of protest will never succeed.

The group condemned the Young Yoruba Freedom YYF, led by one Adeyinka Grandson for posting an offensive video calling Igbo to quit Lagos or be killed to desist from such act.

In a statement, Saturday by the leader of MASSOB, Uchenna Madu, which was made to The Nation in Awka, the pro-Biafra group said YYF should preach peace instead of inciting regions against each other.

Madu, said MASSOB had worked and still working in alliance with Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) and other notable Yoruba self-determination and pressure groups for the betterment of the respective regions, adding that it was shocking to receive such a red signal from its Oduduwa brothers.

According to MASSOB, “It is well known that Ndigbo and Yorubas have lived, interacted and socialized in harmony with each other

” MASSOB stands for the self determination emancipation for all regions of Nigeria. Igbo political leaders are in alliance with their counterparts in Yoruba land clamouring for true federalism and restructuring of Nigeria.

“MASSOB advised the Young Yorubas for Freedom (YYF) and their collaborators to stop fanning the embers of discord and calumny among the southern brothers.

“Ndigbo have never declared any aggression against the Yorubas or any other indigenous tribe in Nigeria. Ndigbo did not attack or destroy any government or private properties in Lagos.

“MASSOB warned the perpetrators of the falsehood that is capable of pitching Ndigbo and Yorubas into unpleasant aggression to stop it.

“Southwest, Southeast, South-south and Middle Belt regions have formed a greater alliance that will emancipate them from their political subjections in Nigeria. We shall never allow the Fulanis to create divisions among us again.

The group said some Northern elements were no longer comfortable with the Southern and Middle Belt alliance for the political survival of their respective regions, adding that such enemies of the South were seriously engaging in every effort that would jeopardize the growing and practical brotherhood the people of Southern regions had built.

MASSOB advised the leaders of Afenifere, YOLICOM and other notable groups and individuals of Yoruba extraction to call the YYF to order.

The pro -Biafra group said YFF and its sponsors should avoid heating up the tension that was already ravaging the economy of the Southern regions.

“MASSOB also warns the hoodlums in the disguise of Nigeria Youths protesters to stop looting, maiming, burning and destroying the public and private properties of the people.”
