The Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has slammed some politicians from the South Eastern part of the country, who recently defected to the All Progressives Congress, describing them as real enemies of Biafra.
Ex-Senate President, Ken Nnamani, as well as former governors of Abia State and Old Anambra State, Orji Uzor Kalu and Jim Nnwobo, respectively, recently joined the APC.
Reacting however, MASSOB National Director for Publicity, Samuel Edeson, in a statement in Enugu, said he aligned with the position of Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who accused the defectors of selfish pursuit.
It added that the defectors had no political value in Igboland.
MASSOB also slammed a particular defector whom it said was not useful to either the state or Ndigbo when he led the National Assembly.
“They (Ndigbo) never benefited anything during his tenure as Senate President. These men are contract seekers that have no Igbo interest in mind.
“Time has come when we will no longer accept these kind of men in Igbo land. We are going to mobilize all the genuine pro-Biafra agitators and Igbo youths against these selfish greedy politicians.
“Who among these men that decamped to APC can beat his chest and boldly say that this is what I did for my people. Nobody will use Igbo land as battle field again like NPN/NPP in 1983.
“The Fulani herdsmen killed our people in Nimbo Uzo-Uwani, killed in Awgu; Umuahia, Delta and other places and they did not see reasons to speak against these killings of innocent people.
“They are political prostitutes. When we said last year that we are going to make this government ungovernable, they thought that we are going to fight them with arms, or going to the streets to protest. No, with our diplomatic moves, we have been able to achieve a lot,” said MASSOB.
