Uwazuruike also revealed his discussion with the UN on the matter.
Secessionist groups from the southeast have be multiplying since MASSOB began its mobilization about two decades ago.
IPOB and others are rooting for war with Nigeria.
But the MASSOB leader said he promised Ojukwu there will be o civil war.
“The founder of MASSOB, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike promised Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu that the new Biafra struggle for independence will not cause another war in the country,” the organization stated in a press release August 12.
“Biafrans won’t fight another civil war with Nigeria, despite the level of provocation. We are very positive that we will reach the promised land without firing a gunshot.”
“Having also assured the United Nations, UN, in the Biafra Bill of Rights, which was submitted on November 1, 1999, our leader promised that MASSOB shall remain peaceful in the course of its agitation for Biafran sovereignty.”
MASSOB dismissed any politician or group, sponsoring or inciting violence or calling for war in Nigeria, is on their own.
IPOB, whose leader Nnamdi Kanu remains in DSS detention, has been launching attacks on government and institutions around the southeast. President Muhammadu Buhari has threatened to deal with them in the language they best understand.
“Biafra fought a fratricidal war between 1967 and 1970 and the region is not prepared for another war of arms,” MASSOB said.
But it’s not in Uwazuruike power to stop IPOB or any other violent secessionist group that wants to go to war.
