The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, (MASSOB) in Onitsha, has vowed that the clampdown on its members by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, would not silence them until the Biafra state is actualised. MASSOB Deputy Director of Information, Mazi Chris Mocha, stated this in Onitsha while speaking with journalists. Mocha also labelled the Buhari led government as cowardly because, according to him, the government is using the police on a "non-violent organisation". He also said Buhari dared President Buhari saying he cannot stop the existence of the group.
"If OBJ as president, who hated Ndigbo and what we stood for could not stop MASSOB for eight years, is it Buhari that will stop us," he said.
