ABA- As some groups within the South East zone continue to condemn the Operation Python Dance recently launched by the Nigerian Army, the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign States of Biafra, MASSOB, has described the operation as a measure intended to stop the agitation for an independent state of Biafra and destabilize Ndigbo, but would fail.
The organization lamented that Ndigbo had gone through much hatred, marginalization, harassment and killings from the Nigerian security forces since the civil war years and urged the federal government to dismantle the operation python dance in the interest of the people.
Chief MASSOB Leader, Solomon Chukwu, who spoke through the organization’s National Director of Information, Sunny Okereafor, alleged that Operation Python Dance was meant to place the South East zone under siege and continue the killings of pro Biafra activists who are demanding an independent state of their own.
“MASSOB won’t be deceived; Operation Python Dance is designed to stop the agitation for an independent state of Biafra and cripple the economy of the South East. They know that Biafra is at hand, the more the Nigerian government run from Biafra, the more it stare them in the face.
If we may ask, why will the Nigerian government place the South East under siege? Is not to continue the genocide against Biafran people? How many operation python dance have the Army set up in the killing field in Southern Kaduna, Zamfara and other volatile areas in the North? Though we are non violent, we warn that enough is enough on the killing of Biafra activists.
The Nigerian government should stop treating Igbo land as a conquered territory. Since Ndigbo survived the civil war, no machination of the Nigeria government that can intimidate us.”
While calling on Ndigbo to be vigilant as soldiers may lay siege to their areas, MASSOB urged the people not to be intimidated into shunning their villages during the yuletide.
