The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has knocked a former minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, for likening the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the OOdua Peoples Congress (OPC) to Boko Haram.
VANTAGE NEWS reported that Dambazau who spoke at the inauguration of Army War College Nigeria Course 5/2021, on Friday in Abuja, said IPOB and OPC do not believe in the Nigerian project.
Reacting through a statement issued on Sunday by its National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, MASSOB wondered why Dambazau who served in the army compare OPC, IPOB to the Islamic extremist group, Boko Haram
The statement partly read, “It is a well known fact that IPOB, OPC, MASSOB and other self-determination groups in Nigeria are engaged in a legitimate self-determination struggle for our people’s liberation from the series of slavery the British yoked us with the Hausa Fulani-dominated Nigeria Enterprise with their Islamic and Sharia hostages.
“How can a man who has served in the military as Army General suddenly become myopic and exhibit loss of his sense of reasoning by comparing IPOB, OPC to Islamic terrorist Boko Haram?
“The Fulani from Sudan, Mali, Niger and Libya are now residents in Nigeria. They are in our rural villages as shoe menders, water well diggers, okada riders and tailors waiting to execute their plans of overtaking the Southern and Middle Belt regions.
“The coordinated synergy of all pro-independence agitators in Biafra, Oduduwa and Middle Belt lands will always resist the Fulani domination.”
