The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra MASSOB has called on all the Igbos living and doing business in Borno state to vacate the region and return home.
MASSOB stated that it was The National Director of Information of MASSOB, Sunday Okereafor, in a telephone interview told our correspondent that the group is worried over the renewed killings and beheading of Christians by ISWAP and Boko Haram Terrorist groups in Borno state and other parts of the North.
He said the need for the Igbos to come back to the south east became necessary to avoid being killed by terrorist groups who had recently made Christians their targets, “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.”
He alleged that the South-East was economically viable for Igbo people and others to do business. “We cannot watch while they push us to the wall, kill us and kill our children. We have economic opportunities in the South-East; we have enough food here.” Please return home He yelled.
