'Igbo 're the real target of the ongoing ethnic cleansing in Benue ' - MASSOB warns, Says bombing of Nwodo's house is a precursor

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Uchenna Madu-led Movement for the Sovereign State of Biafra ( MASSOB) has raised alarm that Ndigbo are the main target of the on-going ethnic cleansing in Benue State by killer herdsmen.

According to MAaSSOB, the aim of those behind the genocidal act is to first decimate the Tivs and establish their military  base in their territory before their final incursion into the neigbouring Igbo which has remained their target.

MASSOB  National Director of Information, Samuel Edeson, who raised the alarm while reacting to the Sunday morning explosion at the Nsuka country home of the  President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia  Nwodo, called on Ndigbo to wake up to the realities.
Describing the attack as "regrettable and disgraceful" MASSOB vowed to assist in the efforts to unmask those behind the "devilish operation."

Edeson  in a press statement yesterday said the bombing of Nwodo's house was a precursor to the fate of Ndigbo after herdsmen if unchecked,  had decimated the people of Benue State.

The statement read in part: "We wish to remind Ndigbo that the terrorist attack by Fulani herdsmen on the people of Benue is not their main agenda, their target is Igbo land.                               

"They want to use Benue state as a conquered land for establishment of their terrorist military base for further attacks against Ndigbo."

MASSOB however vowed to defend Igbo land against any invasion by terrorists while calling on Ndigbo to fully identify with the agitation for Biafra restoration, insisting that Nigeria can no longer work together as one entity.

"We shall intensify our security efforts, vigilance and grassroot reawakening of security consciousness in Igbo land against our common enemies," MASSOB  said.

MASSOB challenged Ndigbo who still believe in the theory of ' one Nigeria' to wake up to realities on ground and rather devote efforts towards actualising Biafra independence where the future of the race can be guaranteed.


"We call  on Ndigbo to wake up and join hands with all the genuine pro Biafra groups to protect our land from these marauding terrorist Fulani herdsmen."

It also cautioned  Igbo politicians championing the agitation for Nigeria President of Igbo extraction to perish the idea, saying such a project is not feasible under the the ill- structured 'one Nigeria'.

"MASSOB advised Ndigbo to eloquently identify with Biafra movement for the emancipation of Biafra people. Any Igbo man agitating for Igbo president in Nigeria is an enemy of Ndigbo because such agenda is centred on  personal interest.

"MASSOB is calling on Ndigbo and all Biafrans to wake up from their political slumbering. Ndigbo must know that our enemies are now within our midst. We condemn this terrorist attack against an Igbo leader. Now, it is Nnia Nwodo,  tomorrow who knows the next? "
