Why Lagos, Abuja are part of Igbo land – MASSOB


The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, on Thursday declared that Abuja, Lagos are part of Biafra.

Leader of the group, Uchenna Madu made the declaration while stressing that every territory in the country where Igbos reside and own major investments are part of “Biafraland.”

Addressing a rally in Awgu, Enugu State, Madu said Igbos are against being confined to a particular place.

Madu said, “Pro-Biafra groups have adopted a new ideology which stated that any part of the country where a large population of Igbos is found, and where Igbos contributed towards human and material development, is part of Biafra.”

The MASSOB leader also decried the alleged sacking of Igbo traders from a portion of land at Trade Fair and FESTAC in Lagos.

Claiming that the Lagos State Government evicted the affected traders after they had invested billions of naira in developing the area, Madu maintained that Igbo would not be forced out from any part of Nigeria due to their investments.

He said, “Some years back a portion of land at Trade Fair and FESTAC were conceded to our people for development in Lagos.

“After spending billions of naira in developing this part of Lagos for the economic growth of Nigerian government, today information reaching us is that the Federal Government, conniving with the Lagos State Government, yesterday retrieved the land, the platform, all the investment and everything from the people of Biafra.

“This is part of the reason for Biafra agitation. And we are warning because we now believe that everywhere an Igbo man is is part of Biafra. That is the latest ideology we have.

“We don’t want to confine ourselves to a particular place; we now believe that wherever our foot touches is our land that is Biafra.

“Lagos is also Biafra, Abuja is also Biafra. Anywhere our people are, that place is Biafra.

“So what we are saying now is, that part of Lagos that our people developed with their money is also part of Biafra and we cannot leave.”

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
