A faction of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, weekend, lashed out at Enugu Catholic Priest, Rev.Fr. Ejike Mbaka describing his comment on the struggle for Biafra as insensitive and unguided.
Fr. Mbaka had during last Saturday sermon at his Adoration Ministry condemned the recent agitation and protests for Biafra nation describing the action as `evil’.

Apparently infuriated at the fiery clergyman’s comment, Director of Information, Factional MASSOB, Mr. Uchenna Madu regretted that Fr. Mbaka’ condemnation of Biafra struggle is, “selfish and shameful. How can a revered Igbo clergy man descend so low in making such a condemnable statement few days after President’s Buhari’s wife visited him?
“Mr President should be aware that no money given to Mbaka, persuasion, personal friendship with him can ever frustrate or diminish the rising status, consciousness and global reawakening/acceptance of Biafra. A man who speaks with both sides of the mouth at a time is a hypocrite and is not worth to be trusted. The Igbo Christians, Catholics and even the Pope will prove Mbaka wrong. Many Igbo clergymen including the Catholic priests are not in support of Mbaka’s government paid anti-Biafran comment.
“This why the Igbo youth and other citizens have lost confidence/trust on many Igbo leaders in Nigeria. Biafra agitators are more determined to sacrifice our shops, businesses, jobs, comfort and even the supreme price for the sake of our freedom. Mbaka should be aware that even during our peaceful/nonviolent demonstrations, the agitators, sympathizers and Biafran patronized his products including his sachet water and yogurts. Mbaka’s business boomed as the protests lasted.” (Vanguard)
