MASSOB Vows To Stop Christmas, New Yam Celebrations [DETAILS]

Updated 18 October, 2016
– MASSOB says traditional rulers in the south-east geopolitical zone should jettison the ofala and new yam festivals following their inability to demand the release of detained Nnamdi Kanu. 

– The pro-Biafra group says the traditional rulers lost relevance when they failed to call for the release of their subjects in detention. 

– MASSOB labels Igbo elites, religious leaders, politicians as insensitive to the Biafra struggle.

A faction of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, (MASSOB) has threatened to start a massive revolution in all Igbo communities by December that will stop the Christmas celebrations if Nnamdi Kanu is not released. 

MASSOB has also told traditional rulers in the south-east geopolitical zone henceforth not to celebrate the Ofala and New Yam festivals following their inability to demand the release of detained Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafran agitators who have been detained since October 10, last year. 

The group, according to Vanguard, in a statement by their leader Uchenna Madu on Monday, October 17, said the traditional rulers lost relevance when they failed to call for the release of their subjects in detention which includes; Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi, Innocent Orji, Sabastine Amadi and Benjamin Onwuka in prisons across the country. 

“Why must Igbo traditional rulers continue to celebrate Ofalas and new yam festivals while their Biafran subjects are still in detention for Igbo cause? We will stop these celebrations forthwith. 

What are the religious leaders still preaching while our brethren are still in prisons? We demand that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and others will not spend Christmas in prisons again or an internal native revolution will start in Igboland,” MASSOB said.
