MASSOB always bring out mixed feelings among some of us Igbo because of their methods.
Yes, they are saying some things that we all agree with (I won't name them because I don't want arguments over them), BUT their methods leave a sour taste.
Here is what I mean.
The name "Biafra" always evokes venom among Nigerian security operatives (for obvious reasons -they are afraid of retribution which may not even come with Biafra's actualization), so, pray, how can any sane person march around in HUGE numbers unarmed in the name of MASSOB? I can understand if a few members of MASSOB, eg , their leaders only do such marches, and if anything happens to them, the rest of them can take action to free their leaders.
My heart bleeds anytime I see young UNARMED Igbo men gunned down in Igboland. It has been happening for years now, and our leaders do nothing.
What concerns me most is that our enemies are using the opportunity to come into Igboland as soldiers and be killing our youths under the guise that they are MASSOB.
So MASSOB should either change strategy, or they should leave Igboland.
I'll be back!

yeah , let me help you list your mistakes.
1. murdering the leaders of a region where you eat your food.
2. claiming sovereignty over somebody else's ancestral land for your republic against their wishes.
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by Onlytruth(m): 7:33pm On Feb 16, 2012|
When are you people going to get tired of these stale lines? Anyway I think it is the youths of Yoruba land that is deluded. Your leaders have already started to acknowledge their past mistakes and are already beginning to make moves to amend them. It is clear to any sane person.
That is part of why I believe that Uwazurike is wrong with his threats here.
BTW I won't argue with you over the two state falsehoods. lol

The only problem I see with Nigeria is the core North "born to rule" mentality which they occassionally enforce violently. Apart from that, I don't mind staying in Nigeria because I know that Ndigbo can survive in it.
That is why I advise Ndigbo to stop running home at the slightest violence from the North. Of course those who want to go home should go home and stay there, but anyone who stays in the North should be prepared to fight and die there. The core North must stop thinking that they possess exclusive rights to violence.

Igbo Will Go To War
Published on February 13, 2012 by TheNEWS· 11 Comments
"Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, leader, Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, tells OKAFOR OFIEBOR that the Igbo are ready for war against their killers in the North"
Considering he's the head of a Biafran group committed to seeing a separate country materialize, I wouldn't expect him to say otherwise. This separatist mindset seems to be taking hold and getting more people's attention, if not outright support, and not only amongst pro-Biafrans either. Not mine anyway. We'll see.
He's kinda young-looking to be a chief. . . as they say, black don't crack.

|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by jason123: 5:21pm On Feb 17, 2012|
I'll have to say this; I commend the Ndigbo for being patient and long-suffering. Not many ethnic groups would have done what our south-eastern brothers have done. That is a plus to them. Knowing the ND or SW, Core-Northerners would have been roasted in these regions even though, most Northerners (including the Core) are not in support of BH's activities.
With that said, I'll have to say that this Uwazuruike is an unserious man who lacks rationality.
Take a look at this nonsense he is spewing:
When Boko Haram asked people from the South and Christians to leave, who were their main targets? Yorubas are also killed. But Igbos are always in greater numbers. This is because anywhere in Nigeria, aside from the owners of the land, the next largest ethnic group are the Igbo. The poor leadership in the East makes their homeland hostile to commerce and investment. The Yoruba supported one Nigeria. If there is a war today, the Yoruba will join the North to fight us because of this natural hatred for the Ndigbo. They have done it before and will do it again. Though northerners don’t like them, they still prefer them to the Ndigbo. We learnt that after Boko Haram asked southerners to leave the North, Niger Delta people started having secret meetings with the Yoruba at Awolowo Hall. The Igbo were not invited. That shows that if there is real war today, they would align with our foes.
Does he think the ND would take sides?? I have had this discussion before on this site. There are Ijaws, Yorubiod groups, Igbobiod groups, Edoid groups, Calabars, Efiks and so on in the ND. Even the Ijaws have not beaf with anyone as there are western and eastern Ijaws. This man wants to divide the south and that my friends would be dangerous. When I see the PDP agents on this site spewing crap about how the ND would follow any group and do this and that, I can't help but laugh at their ignorance. These people have successfully deceived people with euphoric dreams and the undiscerning minds have drank the lies poured out by their forked-tougue(except from Chyz* who saw what others could not see).
Well, to finish it off, Ndigbo please this man might lead you to trouble one day. His choice of words are uncalled for. You know your "enemies" (if you indeed have any because as far as I am concerned, you have NO ENEMY. Some people are simply trying to make you fight a war that is not yours) and restrict your "anger" at your "enemies".
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by Onlytruth(m): 6:13pm On Feb 17, 2012|
Ndigbo are not fools and will NEVER fight a silly war. What is history for if not to help a rational person to make a better decision when similar events show up. I am personally angry (and I represent the voice of sane Igbo) that the man has shown clearly that he does not think strategically at all. It pains me to say this, but I am almost sure that those young men following Uwazuruike in MASSOB may be thinking that he has some realistic plans to actualize Biafra. Everything he says in this interview shows he has NONE.
Ndigbo are arguably the most capable group in Nigeria, so, it is insulting that a man without any rational plans is trying to lead us into a repeat of history.
This will NEVER happen.
I have personally notice (Since!) that Biafra is used as an instrument of blackmail against us by groups in the south. That is part why I adopted my own belief that Ndigbo can stay in Nigeria (even as is!). All we need to do is change our mindset about how we live in the North.
We need a new leader in Igboland that will help bring about this change of mindset. Uwazuruike is only right on the issue of violence, which BTW he needs to renounce his crazy non-violence crap that destroys the Igbo fighting/warlike spirit.
These days I cannot even recognize my brothers in Nigeria.
That is part of why we have lost our voice in the scheme of things.
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by Onlytruth(m): 6:20pm On Feb 17, 2012|
My honest hope is that after the burial of Ojukwu, that Ndigbo will sit down to SERIOUSLY agree on (or address) what to do about MASSOB and its tactics.
This struggle is too important to be left for the Uwazuruike types of Igboland.
I still hope that either MASSOB changes strategy, or they should leave Igboland/be disbanded or something.
We don' t need backdoors through which mass murderers enter Igboland to destroy our ability to fight (if necessary) for our own emancipation.
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by ranlaen: 6:30pm On Feb 17, 2012|
Why even go to war ?
Make igbos who want to leave make they go .I highly doubt delta igbos will follow you even they have a capital in one of the richest in oil state even though he oil wells are not in the igbo portion of the state nor are the ports and will certainly not want to live that union.
Igboland if all the igbos return there is a small area that will be highly over populated landlocked and very little resources .
Days of making cash as middlemen will be gone since they will have no ports and will now have to pay to use the ports and then to sell it to the remaining nigeria they left.
Trust me if tomorrow GEJ gives permission for Igbos to leave but take only their tribal boundaries with them not artifically created state ones like delta ,we will see how many will agree to go.
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by musiwa,,.: 6:32pm On Feb 17, 2012|
Igbo will not go to war. If you know the igbo people. They can not shut their business for 1 day and not to talk of civil war. Even when their is protest, they dont take part in it because they dont want to close their business. So if you remove the Western niger, nothing will happen. Look Ojukwu will have voted for me , if I ran for president before he voted for Jonathan goodluck . I dont want to post the reason why on the internet.

Haba, I seem to have missed out these past few weeks on NL, I guess because NL is becoming DRY and uninformative to me. Damn, this topic got my attention and I have to agree mostly in parts to what he's saying.
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by tunnytox(m): 7:15pm On Feb 17, 2012|
Honestly, who did this to you? I'm beginning to have concerns for your state of mental health. SMH Ojukwu will vote for una? May be in your dreams.
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by namfav(m): 7:18pm On Feb 17, 2012|
massob should be branded a terrorist organisation, allthere memebers sent to prison or shot on sight, now can you imagine a emir saying something uwazuruike said
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by jason123: 7:51pm On Feb 17, 2012|
FINALLY! Now you see it, especially the highlighted.
Off topic: If indeed you saw this on your own. You really have changed and you are beginning to look at things unbiased and simple. Remember, simplicity is brilliance!
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by manny4life(m): 9:11pm On Feb 17, 2012|
Terrorist Organization, LOL, we're so crying about being labelled a terror group. How about you go and tame your Boko Haram brothers who're on the loose?
Please don't compare nor associate him to you "emirs", terror plotters behind closed doors.
|Re: Igbo Will Go To War-----chief Ralph Uwazuruike by Starlett: 9:26pm On Feb 17, 2012|
This interview is sure to ignite passions across Naija. And perhaps with this interview and the nation-wide reactions, Uwazuruike may have well introduced or entrenched himself as the de-facto leader of the Igbo Nation.
If this man learnt well from the late Ikemba, then just watch it: He will soon start attracting the same controversy and passionate following that Ojukwu had. Just watch and see,

The number one enemy of ndigbo is ndigbo itsef and then d rest. Ndigbo re making themselve look weak in this country by this sing of biafra everytym.
Lets assume ndigbo ve biafra tomorrow,can they stay ther?
Can biafra bear all dis competition among them,they will still want d north,southwest nd southsouth alas dey would ve become alien(another doom) in a place dat suppose to be thier country,
givin others gud reason to discriminate dem more.
folks,biafra is not d solution to ndigbo problem rather a futuristic awaitin doom in disguise(i belif i ve rait to my opinion). Ndigbo leader shd kno dis.
ndigbo ve been known to travel far and wide to invest and acquire wealth,an ndigbo abroad(outa biafra region) is everly reluctant to come nd settle home(why,why is home scary?)
ndigbo is scared of fellow ndigbo to confide cuz of competition.
Such people that are culturally or collectively known as movin from place to place, U still wanto complicate ther woes by alienatn dem in ther supposedly country cuz biafra cant and can neva support d exploration of ndigbo,biafra is quite small nd non comfortable wit d vastness of ndigbo,pple who love exploration.
make una first come together, strike bargain wit nigeria ,secure nigeria fo ya pple, yorubas are clamourin for regionalism/ true federalism cuz dats best for ther pple, southsouth resource control/true federalism which is ud fo ther pple nd thus ideologically similar to yorubas for each region shall control its resources while ndigbos alwaz biafra,is biafra the solution to ndigbo's problem?
D answa is capital NO. Ndigbo shd bring somethin reasonable to the table in order to excel in dis country.
Is it only british dat makes united kingdom,russia,china,'UNITED STATES' OF AMERICA let ndigbo suggest united states of Nigeria yes nd lets seee whether president wont come outa ther.
Southsouth that even possess dis resources dat we re all lickin more than any one re clamourin fo resource control,not secession and dats somethn reasonable
What will divide dis country will divide it,and its all ova d atmosphere,its ther ndigbo shd jus relax!!!
Ndigbo shd step up nd shine in nigeria ist meet wit d necessary quarters,north,southsouth,southwest,middle belt,secure life nd prosperity fo ya pple,
but a situation wherby u re playin smart on other ethnics,business as usual,dont shed crocodile t**rs when d table turn around.
even united states is nothin wout her allies,if its possible fo united states nd dis world powers to acquire africa,dey wud ve don so,jus thanGod fo civilisation nd abolition of slave trade!!!!!!
I rest ma case nd i pray fo one united nigeria under true federalism and citizen welfare a priority, what makes USA to stand atop of other world power ,to me, is cuz if she did wrong to others its for her citizen and mind u,if US do u right,its for her citizen NOT FOR U,
God bless Nigeria,amen!!!!

And what make you think that you have the right to talk on behave of ndi igbo? you see things like these is what make ndi igbo become more isolated from other groups in Nigeria because you think you know more than the indigenous, till you people stop this your propaganda igbos will never see themselves as Nigerians,
Who are you to preach to a group that you strip them off their wealth's after the war and gave them 20pounds to start life again? it doesn't matter if the man has 6kids to feed, just your wickedness and backwardness is what holding the country till today, Stop your propaganda for your own good( OGA)

First let me go to my local dibia for my ""special rings"
ok i am Major Ifechukwu
My brothers do not be afraid. this is the day Chineke has made so we must rejoice and be glad in it!
Tommorrow we start phase one of reclaiming our birth right of being free as the ripe mango which hangeth upon the tree.
Biafra as a nation shall be rewarded to us because our grandfathers fought and died for it.
Bakasi island (am i right) will not be forgotten.
First we must go renegade and build a national underground rail road all through out igbo land to supply gun, guns, and 2 times more bombs
Second we must not hate the fellow hausa man because of what his leaders are doing, only wanr him that he should go back to the north WITHOUT his namma if he truly loves life.
third we are not blood mongers, savages or any word related to that, we are NDIIGBO. we will fight for our Mothers and Fathers land. We will sponsore ndiigbo who are over seas that are ready to fight because this is the day they were born for.
