The Movement for the Actualisation of the
Sovereign State of Biafra on Thursday threatened
to make Nigeria ungovernable if the Federal
Government failed to conduct a referendum in the
MASSOB and other pro-Biafra groups, including
the Indigenous People of Biafra, are demanding a
referendum in the region to enable the people
decide, through voting, whether they wish to
secede, or remain in Nigeria.
The Biafra activists claim that majority of people in
the region would vote in favour of a separation
from Nigeria.
In a statement, which was made available to our
correspondent in Enugu, MASSOB said it had
concluded plans, with other pro-Biafra groups, to
disrupt governance in the country, if the Federal
Government would not conduct the referendum.
The National Director of Information, MASSOB,
Samuel Edeson, who signed the statement, said
the agitators would fight the Federal Government
with ‘everything’ at their disposal.
He said the group intended to instigate civil
disobedience, and strikes, particularly in the
South-East, and Lagos.
Edeson said, “MASSOB and other pro-Biafra
agitators will make Nigeria ungovernable if the
Nigerian government failed to conduct referendum
in Eastern Nigeria.
“We shall use everything at our disposal to fight
the Nigerian government, especially through civil
“We are going to call for ‘sit at home’ in all Biafran
land and Lagos.”
The MASSOB spokesman further spoke of plans by
the group to drag former President Olusegun
Obasanjo to the International Criminal Court for
‘atrocities’ he allegedly committed against
‘Biafrans’ since 1970, as well as other ‘crimes’.
