The leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Ralph Uwazurike, has warned that Igbos cannot defeat Nigeria if war breaks out.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Uwazurike warned the leader of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, against inciting youths against security agencies.
Uwazurike, who also founded the Biafra Independence Movement (BIM), urged Igbo youths to shun Kanu.
He warned that the IPOB leader wants to put youths in harm’s way just to enrich himself.
“Those agitating for war know they can’t defeat Nigeria but they want to enrich themselves, so they have continued to deceive our youth,” Uwazurike said.
“Igbo’s cannot afford to go to another war with Nigeria and at no point should they be incited into hostilities with the rest of Nigeria.
“Mobilising youths against their leaders and constituted authority is what we should guard against because we cannot defeat Nigeria.”
The MASSOB leader advised South-east governors to take over the Eastern Security Network to ensure the outfit was not deployed for mischievous purposes.
He further recommended that the network be trained and equipped and made to work in synergy with the police and other security agencies.
Uwazurike called on Igbos who want to contest for the presidency in 2023 to start their consultations now.
