Those Behind South-East Attacks Revealed By MASSOB
The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has accused the Federal Government of funding recent attacks in the region.
This was revealed by MASSOB chief Uchenna Madu in a statement made available to journalists in Awka, Anambra State, according to Naija News.
Intelligence reports indicate that the attacks were carried out by the Federal Government’s “protected bandits,” according to the MASSOB chief.
He said that the attacks were sponsored by the Muhammadu Buhari-led government in order to portray pro-Biafra agitators as militant.
The statement reads; “The leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra has condemned the incessant criminal terrorism and security deterioration in Igboland.
“MASSOB condemned the terrorist attack on Chukwuma Soludo at Isuofia; we equally condemned the unwarranted killings of Ebonyi State indigenous citizens by Fulani terrorist herdsmen. MASSOB condemned in totality the breaking of Owerri prison by the so-called unknown gunmen.
“How can untrained and amateurs with no military training overpower the entire security apparatus of Nigeria in the South-East? Why is it that there was no security resistance during the breaking of Owerri Prisons and Imo State Police headquarters in an operation that lasted more than one hour?
“Nigeria military cantonment, Obinze, Owerri, is seven minutes’ drive to the scenes of the crime; Imo State MOPOL base is three minutes’ drive to the scenes of the crime, but no resistance from security agencies.
“The terrorist attacks in Owerri are part of the ongoing destructive measures by the President Muhamadu Buhari-led administration to discredit and blackmail the pro-Biafra organisations to create an erroneous impression that Biafrans are waging war against Nigeria. Igboland is the most peaceful region.
