Comrade Uchenna Madu, the leader of the Movement for Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has allegedly given Senator Smart Adeyemi three days to apologize to Igbo people for the alleged abuse of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, the Governor of Abia State, at the Senate chamber.
According to Uchenna Madu:
“MASSOB views this unprovoked assault on the person of a sitting governor in Igbo land as an insult to Ndigbo and we can never accept it.
“They are desperate to discredit Igbo leaders because of 2023 general election. MASSOB, therefore, warns Senator Adeyemi that he has three days to publicly apologize to Governor Ikpeazu and Ndigbo in general or risk sanctions, including being declared persona non grata in all parts of Igbo land.
“We understand that Senator Adeyemi is being driven by his perceived hatred against Ndigbo or has been sponsored by the enemies of Ndigbo for political reasons because he is aspiring to be the next governor of Kogi State.
“But we wish to warn him and others who lend themselves to be used against the aspirations of our people that we are ready for them. There is no nation in the world that will make progress while attempting to keep one part of the country down and this explains the lack of progress witnessed in Nigeria since the end of the civil war.
“This same issue is at the heart of our struggle to actualize Biafra where Ndigbo can flourish without anyone seeking to keep us down or abuse our leaders.”
