The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has said it will not allow any pro-President Muhammadu Buhari rally to hold in any part of Igboland.
The Sun reports that the warning was made in a statement issued by MASSOB leader Uchenna Madurai.
The group said it had received reports of a planned march for Buhari by a group in Awka, Anambra State on Friday.
It frowned at what it called a “secret plan by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to hire and import Hausa Fulani people to stage a pro-President Buhari rally in Awka on Friday.
“MASSOB warns that such rally will not hold anywhere in Biafra land’.
“Is this the reason why some Igbo politicians are driving their way into APC that has no interest of Igbo. We will never allow you to bring reproach and political disgrace to Igbo land.
“What is the significance of the APC rally in Igbo land? Does Igbo have any love or likeness for Buhari and APC? Why must such rally be planned to be held in Ojukwu’s home state?
“Is the rally more important than the Federal Government abandoned Second Niger Bridge, Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, Enugu- Port Harcourt Expressway, Onitsha-Okigwe Federal road etc?”
The statement said the planned rally was a plot to deploy Boko Haram terrorists to Igboland.
