Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has urged governors of the South East and South South regions to halt attacks on pro-Biafra protesters by security agents in their states.
Leader of MASSOB, Chief Solomon Chukwu who stated this during the group’s sensitization visit to Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, described the killing of defenceless protesters as a crime against humanity.
Chukwu, who said that the killings were part of the plot to destabilize the former Eastern region, urged the governors to speak up and stop playing politics with the lives of the people.
He said: “The governors are the chief security officers of their states; they should not sit and watch while security agents kill defenceless protesters.
“It is the right of the people to protest; they don’t bear arms, why would security agents turn their guns on the protesters who were holding a prayer session in Aba?
“It is all part of the plot to destabilize the former Eastern Region. South East and South South governors should wake up and stop playing politics with the lives of their people.
“They should rise and take up the matter with the authorities. Enough is enough”.
