Donald Trump,US President-elect, has been urged by the movement for the actualisation of sovereign states of Biafra (MASSOB) to help Biafra gain independence from Nigeria as soon as he is inaugurated on January 20, 2017.
The group said there is an infliction of wicked policies, intimidation and mass killings of Biafra activists by the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration in Nigeria, Vanguard reports.
MASSOB alleged that more Biafrans had been killed for demanding for their rights under Buhari than previous administrations in the country.
However, the group appealed to the US President elect to help Biafra gain independence from Nigeria as soon as he is sworn in to office.
Addressing 30 newly appointed zonal coordinators in Aba, MASSOB Leader for Abia South Zone, Okporie Nkama, urged the Biafra people not to be discouraged by the sufferings which they have been subjected to in Nigeria.
He added that actualization of Biafra’s independence is only a matter of time.
Nkama commended the international community and corporate organizations for their firm support for the actualization of Biafra independence.
“Biafrans are being killed and detained without cause by the Nigerian government. Biafrans have become endangered species in Nigeria. Now, you have been commissioned with a sacred assignment to ensure that your people are free from slavery, intimidation, mass killings and wicked policies against Biafrans by the Nigerian government.
“It is no mean task. You must rise to the occasion. Remember our non-violence strategy; we will certainly gain independence through non-violence.
“Biafrans are encouraged by the support we are getting from the international community. We urge United States President elect, Donald Trump, to come to the aid of Biafrans as soon as he is sworn in. Biafrans are at the risk of extermination under the hammer of the Nigerian government. It is an appeal Trump and the international community not to leave us to die under Buhari.”
