According to a statement released by MASSOB, National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, the group called on international bodies to caution the Nigerian Federal Government to stop threatening and harassing the Igbos.
The statement read in part. “We the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, is beckoning on the United Nations, African Union, United States of America, G8 Nations, and international Human Rights Organisations to save the Indigenous People of Biafra from political and economic annihilation by sanctioning Nigerian state for her human rights abuses.
“We also noticed that the terrorist activities of bandits and Boko Haram is unrepentantly backed by the government.
“These atrocious acts of the Nigerian government have led to the killings, unlawful arrests, abductions, torture, and detentions of innocent Biafra agitators.
“MASSOB is warning that nothing harmful should ever happen to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho and other Biafra/Oduduwa freedom agitators that have been held, tortured, starved, denied medical attention, and are being hunted.
“We wish to inform the people of Biafra that MASSOB has finalised plans through our legal team to sue Muhammadu Buhari-led Nigerian government to International Criminal Court of Justice, Hague.
“MASSOB condemned the insensitivities of Nigeria combined security agents on swooping on non-violence members of Oduduwa Republic agitators in their rally at Lagos.
“Nigeria security brutalities and clampdowns on both Biafra and Oduduwa Republics agitators will never deter us from pursuing our independence goals.”
