The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has called on Igbos in hostile regions in the North to return home.
MASSOB said that it was necessary for the Igbos to adhere to the call to return to the South-East in order to avoid being killed by terrorist groups who had recently made Christians their targets.
The National Director of Information of the pro-Biafran group, Sunday Okereafor, who made this call while speaking with Newsmen on Sunday, explained that refusal to heed MASSOB’s advice on the need to return home could be dangerous.
He stated, “We have told the Igbo in the North to come back home. Uwazurike sent a lot of vehicles to the North two years ago to bring the Igbo people there back home, but they refused to come back home.
“Over 100 vehicles were moved to Kaduna and other states in the North, where you have Fulani people; Borno, Kano, Kaduna and Plateau states. But most of our brothers there are saying no, they are not coming back and that nothing will happen to them.
“We are again calling on our brothers to leave the North and come back to the South-East. But if they say no, ISIS, Boko Haram and herdsmen will kill them. They should come back home to remain alive with their children. We are tired of these killings and we want our people to come back home.”
