The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) yesterday warned that any person or group inciting the Yoruba against Igbo would never succeed.
MASSOB, in a statement by its leader, Uchenna Madu, flayed the Young Yoruba Freedom (YYF) for posting an offensive video calling Igbo to quit Lagos or face consequences.
He noted that MASSOB had worked and was still working in alliance with Oodua People’s Congress and other notable Yoruba’s self-determination and pressure groups for the betterment of the respective regions.
Madu said rather than incite regions against each other, the YYF should preach peace.
He stated: “It is well known that Ndigbo and Yorubas have lived, interacted and socialised in harmony with each other.
“MASSOB stands for the self-determination emancipation for all regions of Nigeria. Igbo political leaders are in alliance with their counterpart in Yoruba land clamouring for true federalism and restructuring of Nigeria.
“MASSOB advised the Young Yorubas for Freedom (YYF) and their collaborators to stop fanning the embers of discord and calumny among the southern brothers.
“Ndigbo have never declared any aggression against the Yorubas or any other indigenous tribe in Nigeria. Ndigbo did not attack or destroy any government or private properties in Lagos.”
