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.”

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
