MASSOB insists on Aug 28 sit-at-home

Ahead of the proposed August 28 sit-at-home order, leaders of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) in Anambra North Senatorial District have reminded all Igbo sons and daughters in the district of the need to ensure strict compliance and success of the programme.

The MASSOB leaders also demanded from the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Sir Mike Okiro, the immediate release of corpses of their members who were allegedly killed by the police before, during and after the May 22 to 30 celebrations of 41st Independence Anniversary of Biafra by Ndigbo and pro-Biafra groups across the globe.

This was contained in a press statement jointly issued on Friday at Onitsha by the MASSOB leaders in the district, including Mazi Chris Mocha, deputy director of Information, Comrade Desmond Ibeh, director of dispute and reconciliation, Hon. Lawrence Okwuchukwu, director of education, Chief Paul Nnamokwo, director of transport and Mr. Jude Okeke, director of finance. The decision was taken after a crucial meeting of Anambra North senatorial district directors at Onitsha, Anambra State.

The district heads said it is mandatory that all parents and school heads in the district, including Anambra East, Anambra West, Ayamelum, Onitsha North, Onitsha South, Ogbaru and Oyi local government areas should withdraw their children or wards in nursery, primary, secondary and tertiary institutions on August 28 to avoid unnecessary embarrassment.

The statement also enjoined public servants, transporters, traders, okada riders, artisans, independent marketers, financial institutions and petrol filling stations to voluntarily stay at home as a mark of respect for Biafra.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
