The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has berated Lt. Gen. Abdulraham Dambazau (rtd), a former Chief of Army Staff, for comparing the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and O’odua People’s Congress (OPC) with Boko Haram terrorist group.
The group noted that Dambazau left out his kinsmen, Fulani herdsmen, who are terrorising the entire nation.
Naija Buzz News had reported that Dambazau while speaking on Friday in Abuja during the inauguration of Army War College Nigeria Course 5/2021, noted that IPOB and OPC shared similarities with Boko Haram, adding that they are all extremist groups.
Reacting to Dambazau, MASSOB in a statement issued by its National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, said; “It is a well known fact that IPOB, OPC, MASSOB and other self-determination groups in Nigeria are engaged in a legitimate self-determination struggle for our people’s liberation from the series of slavery the British yoked us with the Hausa Fulani-dominated Nigeria Enterprise with their Islamic and Sharia hostages.
“How can a man who has served in the military as Army General suddenly become myopic and exhibit loss of his sense of reasoning by comparing IPOB, OPC to Islamic terrorist Boko Haram?
“The Fulani from Sudan, Mali, Niger and Libya are now residents in Nigeria. They are in our rural villages as shoe menders, water well diggers, okada riders and tailors waiting to execute their plans of overtaking the Southern and Middle Belt regions.
“The coordinated synergy of all pro-independence agitators in Biafra, Oduduwa and Middle Belt lands will always resist the Fulani domination.
