Massob Leader Uwazuruike Says He Spent 10 Years In India Understudying Gandhi

Leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, said he spent 10 years in India studying Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violence approach to achieving sovereignty.

Uwazuruike, who heads the secessionist agitation of the Biafran people, said the people of Eastern Nigeria were tired of the incessant bloodshed of their citizens across Nigeria, noting that they would not resort to war but rather explore peaceful negotiations to realise their agenda.

Uwazuruike spoke on Saturday on the occasion of this year’s General Assembly of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation which was held virtually due to travel restrictions imposed to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Founded in 1991, the UNPO is an international membership-based organisation established to empower the voices of unrepresented and marginalised peoples worldwide and to protect their fundamental human rights.

At the General Assembly on Saturday, MASSOB was inducted as a member of the UNPO alongside four others including the Yoruba World Congress headed by elder statesman, Prof Banji Akintoye.

They took to force and by the killing of our people in all states of Nigeria including the southwest, the tendency is that the lives and property of people are not secured in Nigeria.

“In 1966, there was a plethora of attacks on the people of Eastern Nigeria. All our citizens in the north and even in the western region were slaughtered..
