The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has faulted the advice by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji SA’AD ABUBAKAR, that Nigerians should avoid acts that could plunge the country into another civil war.
MAS SOB said rather than making reference to the whole country, the Sultan ought to have directed his advice to Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram insurgents.
The Sultan of Sokoto had, during one of the programmes to mark the Rivers State’s Golden Jubilee celebrations, said Nigeria would not be able to survive another civil war, expressing the need to shun acts that might cause war in the country.
Reacting to Sultan’s comment, the National Director of Information for the movement, Mr. SUNDAY OKEREAFOR, said that MASSOB had never shown any act of violence in the struggle for a sovereign state of Biafra.
OKEREAFOR explained that while Fulani herdsmen had been killing and maiming people in the southern part of the country, Boko Haram sect had continued to perpetrate similar acts in the North-East.
