Two pro-Biafra groups have unanimously appealed to the United Nations and other world leaders to divide Nigeria into 6 geo-political zones in order to solve the current problems facing the country.
These groups – Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and Biafra Independence Movement (BIM) – opined that the only answer to the many problems in the country would be to give the 6 geo-political zones in Nigeria self rule.
The two groups, in a press release signed by their Director of Information, Mr. Chris Mocha called on the UN and other super powers to consider the lives of people that are killed on a daily basis in Nigeria arising from the insurgency in the North East and Fulani herdsmen said to be allegedly affiliated to ISIS and Boko Haram.
According to Mocha, the proposed nations comprises South East (Biafra), South South (Niger Delta), North East, North West, South West, (Oduduwa) and North- Central.
He emphasised that no amount of preaching on nationalism can change Nigeria as it is today.
Mocha added that when the proposed zones are given independence, assets of the citizens of the different countries will be protected by international laws, just as mutual agreements will guide the future relationship of the new republics.
The group nevertheless, maintained that many of their members were killed last week in the course of marking the Biafra anniversary at Nkpor and Onitsha.
“While all the members of BIM/ MASSOB in Anambra central senatorial district including Nkpor town in Idemili North Local Government Area celebrated at Ifite Dunu, our counterparts in Anambra North including Onitsha converged at the zonal secretariat, project site at Nteje in Oyi council area of Anambra State.”
Meanwhile the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose made it clear that the people of the south-eastern part of the country have become an endangered specie. He said this while reacting to the death of more than 30 Igbo protesters who were killed by men of the Military and the Police on Monday, May 30th.
