AS the agitation for a free, independent state of Biafra continues, information and reports available have disclosed that President Buhari is under serious international pressure by the United Nations and western countries to let Biafra secede from Nigeria, leader of the Biafra Independent Movement (BIM),Chief Ralph Uwazuruike has said.
This even as he said President Buhari has refused to listen to the international community.
The BIM leader said despite the Operation Python Dance which has seen the heavy deployment of armed soldiers in the South East, the non-violent agitation for the Independent state of Biafra would continue.
In a press statement issued in Owerri, yesterday and signed by BIM’s Director of Information, Mazi Chris Mocha stated that it would be foolish for any person or group of persons to think or reason that the issue of Biafra could be forgotten without actualising the project
“ That the organisation would step up its separatist agitations in the South East and Niger Delta, adding that the president is now jittery because the issue of Biafra is currently being discussed at the United Nations and in many western countries.
Buhari is under international pressure to let Biafra go and he has no option,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) said it has concluded arrangements to hold seminar for youths in Biafra land.
In a release, the Director General, Organisation of Biafra Music and Film Authority (OBMFA), David Chinedu Eboson said the leader of MASSOB, Chief Solomon Chukwu would use the seminar which comes up on January 25, 2017 to sensitise the youths on what he described as non- violence and non -exodus pattern of life.
Chukwu, according to the release said: “We do not deserve Biafra if it will not be better than Nigeria, Biafra youths will be given separate training on what has been perceived to be the stumbling block to Biafra freedom.
“MASSOB zonal leaders all over Biafra should be ready for the seminar which will also focus on how to revive industries, science and technology, agriculture and the health sector in Biafra land.”
Chukwu berated some leaders from that region who hobnobbed with the Nigerian government, saying as far as the Niger Delta region was concerned, it was part of Biafra and no amount of negotiations would change this.
“Let the world know that the Nigerian government launched ‘Operation Crocodile Smile’ and ‘Operation Eagle Eyes’ in the Niger Delta to wipe out the people there, but we will not die, we must live to testify the goodness of God in the land of Biafra.”
MASSOB condemned a statement said to have been credited to a former Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, saying it was wrong for the former police chief to have classified MASSOB among violent agitation groups.
He pointed out that the current Operation Python Dance and Eagle Eye launched by the Nigerian Army in both South East and Niger Delta would fail like previous exercises in the past. He stressed that all the military operations targeted on its defenceless members had only brought shame, condemnation and mockery on Nigeria.
