Drop case against MASSOB, Ohanaeze tells FG

…Upholds Igariwey’s election

From CHIDI NNADI, Enugu

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s highest policy-making organ, Imeobi, has expressed disapproval over the Supreme Court decision to try the leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike and five others for treason.

Imeobi found no justifiable reason to charge members of MASSOB to court for treason when they had done no harm to any Nigerian while those that killed and maimed fellow Nigerians and had declared an open war against the nation and its unity and interests were allowed to walk around unmolested.

The organ urged the Federal Government to drop its court case on the MASSOB (Uwazuruike and co) issue of treasonable felony .

Imeobi has also ratified the January 12, 2013 election of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation that enthroned Chief Gary N. Enwo-Igariwey as president general and Dr Joe Goziem Nwaorgu as secretary general, as well as other officers elected at the election.

The Imeobi, which sat on Saturday at the Ohanaeze Secretariat in Enugu commended the electoral committee headed by Chief Chris Asoluka for a job well done.

The organ, in a communiqué issued after the meeting signed by the President General, Enwo-Igariwey; secretary general; Dr Nwaorgu, chairman, Resolution Drafting Committee, Prof Paul Modum and Member, Resolution Drafting Committee, Dr Felicia Eneh and made available to Daily Sun affirmed the result of the election.

“The Imeobi affirms its confidence in the new executive and mandates it to continue with its programmes and activities,” the members comprising first Aviation Minister and nationalist, Chief Mbazulueke Amaechi; Prof Anya O. Anya; wife of the late Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, Prof Uche Azikiwe; former governor of Enugu State, Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo; Admiral Allison Madueke (retd); Chairman, South-East Traditional Rulers Council, Eze Cletus Ilomuanya; Dr Offia Nwali; Gibson Nwosu, among others, said.

The organ, thereafter, mandated the National Executive Committee of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to without further delay set up all standing committees of the organisation. It also directed NEC to ensure regular meetings of the Imeobi on a monthly basis.

  1. I thought u people will nt voice out. It is better 4 federal govt to leave de massob’s leader alone, if nt the result shall be dangerous.

  2. Bunch of tired BONES that does not want to use their OLD AGE SENSIBILITY ACUMEN to better their people..always using UWAZURIKES’ trial to make themseleves RELEVANT in MEDIA..talk another thing pls cos GEJ will not allow that to happen..we knw d people that re raising arm to the country..are you people a PRESSURE GROUP or what?you people re a LIABILITY to IGBO RACE.

  3. Violence speaks better in the Mistake called Nigeria. If Arewa Executives can stand for an Amnesty for Boko Haram murderers the Afenafere behind Adams of the Yoruba extraction why we must we not rally behind MASSOB. Ohaneze must prove to Fed .Govt that it is not a toothless Apex Organ of Ndigbo and the quest to belong to Nigeria , no matter how relevant or irrelevant it may entail . We must stop allowing ourselves to be political punching bag and beggars of the last order. “Onye kpo oba ya nkponkpo oba, Agbata obi , ewere ya kpata oku” —-If one calls his/ her calabash a broken one, his /her neighbour will use it to fetch fire . The hour has come for us to stand behind MASSOB .

    • My brother George , the good news about it all was that the wicked Yoruba Chief Judge called Rhodes vivuss had lost all his family through kidnapping in Edo state on their way to attend a family wedding . Thank God the evil that men do these days now lives within them.
      At least the wicked man had tasted a little bit of deprivation in ones privacy. The useless man did not mind the effect of freedom his people and Hausa Fulani’s denied we Igbos since 43 years ago.

    EVEN IF UWAZURIKE IS JAILED OR CHARGES DROPPED .THE TRUTH REMAINS THAT NIGERIA AS A BUILDING HAS CRACKED AND WAITING TO FALL. AS CAN SEE, THE YOUTH ARE TIRED OF ONE NIGERIA. THE NORTHERN YOUTH ARE AGITATING FOR ISLAMIC STATE WHERE SHARIA WILL BE FULLY PRACTICED, THE EASTERN NIGERIA YOUTHS ARE AGITATING FOR BIAFRA NATION WHILE THE YORUBA YOUTHS ARE AGITATING FOR ODUDUWA KINGDOM

    FRAGILE NIGERIA AND CHILDISH VERDICT OF SUPEREME COURT OF NIGERIA
    ——————————————————————————

    If common NGF can cause panic to the Nigerian instituted entity, how fragile do we think that Nigeria is?
    That will so u the level of low quality Justice that handle admin affairs of Nig Supereme Court. A group of people peaceful say that they want to be freedom of ur failed entity and unqualified foolish Justice of the Sup. Ct. termed it treason.
    We wish MASSOB supereme success. It has not been in the history that a mother country supported the independence of emerging country.
    Those Justice of the S C are all jokers. They just want to heat the heated polity more and caused avoidable violence. They must have been pushed to come up with the verdict.
    MASSOB offended no one, including Fed Rep of Nig by wishing to stay on it’s own. That’s the legitimate fact and principle of international law and policy.
    Nig Fed Govt and their privies (be it Judiciary, Nig Police Force, Soldiers etc) can go to hell to die per second.
    They cannot tell SE and some SS where to belong as a country. Even Britain never supported Nigerian independence from on-set.
    The more desperate Buhari and Tinubu become, the more united the SE, SS and middle belt become and the more fragile Nigeria became. America may be right judging from the uproar rose from common Chairman of NGF issue.
    Now, which way Nigeria?
    There was just a country.

  6. There is nothing in this piece of news to cheer about. Ohanaeze risks becoming irrelevant if it continues the way it is going. All these old men their names are read out as new executives, some of them had played politics at the expense of their people, will have to reengineer the pan Igbo association to be more relevant. As 2015 is around the corner, Igbos must not walk along a narrow bridge with one staff.

    Ohaneze should p/s demand d removal & trial of d stupid Judge called ( Rhodes vivuss) not 2 ask d FG 2 stop d treason charge against Uwazuruike & co, it is too childish 4 them 2 be saying such, we need another Ohaneze-very vibrant & ready 2 declare wht super-sits d bokorams

    My people thank you all for that wonderful observations and contributions. Then since Nigeria doesn’t want to reason with us peacefully, should we go into violence? Think about the most outstanding threats Nigeria has but about to grant useless amnesty to them. Is it better to tell Nigeria that Biafran youths are awake?
