MasterwebNews 25/2/17 - How Biafra Will Achieve Independence -Ralph Uwazuruike

[ Masterweb Reports: Seun Opejobi reports ] - Founder of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Ralph Uwazuruike, on Wednesday disclosed how Biafra would be actualized. Speaking during a meeting between members of MASSOB and Biafra Independent Movement, BIM, in Onueke, Ezza South Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, Uwazuruike maintained that Biafra will be achieved without firing a single gunshot.


Represented by BIM’s Director of Information, Chris Mocha, the MASSOB leader said the long awaited breakup of Nigeria would take its natural course at the appropriate time.


Uwazuruike disclosed that the first procedure for declaring independence was to first notify the United Nations, UN, of its desire to separate.


Uwazuruike said, “I trained myself properly for the Biafra struggle. After I was called to the Nigerian Bar as a lawyer, I spent another 10 years studying the principles of non-violence in India, knowing full well that the only panacea for the achievement of self-determination for Biafra is non violence.


“I later spent additional 10 years working with the former head of state of the defunct Biafra, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.


“For this reason and with my constant persuasion based on truth, Ndigbo have always listened to us. This non-violent approach is what Mahatma Ghandhi of India called Satyagraha in Indian language.”
