MASSOB, IPOB deserve FG’s attention-Ohanaeze Ndigbo
President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Chief John Nwodo has urged President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to give the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, and the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, due attention in their agitation.
He said the Federal Government should accord the two groups the same attention accorded Niger Delta Avengers and Boko Haram insurgents.
Nwodo said, ”I extend my hand to the MASSOB and IPOB members to work with us. I understand your frustrations, your plights and impatience.
“Inspite of the reproach they have used to oppress you, you have remained calm. “Come home, your father has listening ears. I feel bad about how our youths are treated.
“I call on the Federal Government to have a rethink on how they handle the issues of IPOB and MASSOB. If they treat them as they have treated others, they will have a rethink.”
Nwodo also called on to the Igbo to be united, “I am appealing to all Igbo to be united. I feel that dissipating our strength will not help any of us.”
