Late Ojukwu
The Pro-Biafran Protesters called the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra MASSOB on Sunday said that the sole called Igbo leaders no longer showed respect to the Biafran leader [late Ojukwu].
The leader of the MASSOB, Uchenna Madu, who made the group’s feeling known in a statement made available to the Punch News, in Enugu said that the late Biafran leader was not happy with the current crop of political, traditional, religious and opinion leaders in Igboland.
The MASSOB leader said, “Ndigbo have abandoned the lagacies and visions of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu [Eze Igbo Gburugburu]. Even his image, personality and name are no longer respect or regarded in the political economic, social, traditional and religious lives of Ndigbo.

According to source, the group said Igbo had caused even more harm to themselves than the Nigerian Federal Government had.
The MASSOB leader also said that Igbo put in more effort towards the development of foreign lands while neglecting Igbo land.
According to source, the MASSOB leader said, “Ndigbo have committed more harmful and sacrilegious crimes against Igbo land with their nonchalant attitude and selfishness against our ancestors.
“Seventy-five per cent of infrastructural, economic, academic, commercial, technological and agricultural developments in Lagos, Kano, Abuja, Kaduna, Jos, Ibadan, Ilorin and other major cities outside Igbo land are established by Ndigbo,”
He also called on Igbo leaders to “Sit Up” and advanced the interest of their people.
In his word he said, “The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra has reiterated our earlier demand that Igbo political, religious, economic and traditional leaders must sit up now in advancement of Igbo political, economic, traditional and religious emancipation from Nigeria’s anti-Igbo policy of subjection,”
