EXCLUSIVE: See List Of States IPOB, MASSOB name as Biafran states
While naming the states included in the list, the groups said it was a good omen in the first instance for the President to acknowledge that Biafra had become a household name in the east.
According to a statement by the newly appointed MASSOB leader in Delta state, Chinedu Amaifeobu supported by the Zonal Commander of Security, Ignatius Adili-Ajana, in Asaba yesterday said the South East and the South- South states were abinitio tied by the same umbilical cord.
Revealing that Delta, Rivers, Akwa-Ibom, Edo, Bayelsa and Cross- River were all among the list agitating for Biafra Independence.
According to him, the two geo-political zones were bonded by the same cultural, spiritual, moral and religious heritage, hence, the government of Nigeria would not hound them out of Biafra. He said: “We urge our South-South brothers and sisters not to be deluded by the divide and rule antics of the Nigerian government but remember the sons and daughters of whom they are.
“That is why we are calling on the United States of America that has just produced Mr. Donald Trump as President-elect, the United Nations, France, China and other international communities, to join in the celebration of Ojukwu’s memorial day.”
