Biafra: MASSOB hires 500 pastors, prayer warriors


MASSOB-igbo-3The struggle to actualise Biafra has gone spiritual as Chief Ralph Uwazurui­ke’s faction of the Move­ment for the Actualisa­tion of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) un­der Biafra Independence Movement has raised over 500 pastors and prayer warriors across the region to pray for the immediate actualisation of a sover­eign Igbo nation.

Disclosing this, yes­terday, after a meeting at Grace Accord Mission, Ndiakwu Otolo, Nnewi, Anambra State, MAS­SOB State Coordinator of Religion in Anambra, Pas­tor Ani Nwede James said the group had decided to renew what he described as its covenant with God. He said the group which is identified as Biafran Cler­gy Men would be backing up its prayers with oc­casional fasting to draw down the hand of God.

Pastor James explained that the move to go spiri­tual to actualise Biafra started sixteen years ago but had only come to ful­filment this year.

During the Nnewi meeting, he disclosed that there were prayer sessions that lasted hours “during which period we covered ourselves with the blood of Jesus to prepare us for the task ahead.”

The clergy called on Ohaneze Ndigbo, Churches and other reli­gious leaders to join them in the crusade to actualise the sovereign state of Bi­afra.

On the recent state­ment credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that Biafra would never be achieved, Pastor James said the clergymen had al­ready petitioned God over that, saying that anybody who in any imagination thought that Biafra would not be actualised was hav­ing a day dream “because it is a task that must be done.”

The pastors also told the Fulani herdsmen to leave “Biafran land” for good as God’s anger would de­scend on them for spilling innocent blood. (Daily Sun)
