The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has lambasted the Director-General of Voice of Nigeria, VON, Osita Okechukwu, accusing him of turning his back on Biafra.
Okechukwu had in different occasions condemned the activities of groups agitating for the sovereign state of Biafra.
The VON DG had also described the call as unrealistic, urging the agitators to support the current administration.
However, MASSOB noted that since Okechukwu’s appointment as Director-General of VON, he has taken the issues of Biafra agitation, Nnamdi Kanu’s detention and Biafra agitators as the only way to entertain his masters in the All Progressives Congress, APC.
MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu, in a statement, yesterday, described Okechukwu as an errand boy.
He said Okechukwu had thrown caution to the winds in sabotaging the desire and wish of all Igbos, including his kinsmen.
Madu said, “MASSOB sees Osita Okechukwu as a desperate man, who easily sabotages the general interest of his people just to keep his position or appointment by the oppressors of his people.
“Has Osita Okechukwu who claimed that Ndigbo are better and comfortable in Buhari’s administration condemned the several killings, harassments, intimidation and genocide by armed Fulani herdsmen against the people of his home state, Enugu?
“We remind Osita Okechukwu that his appointment by Buhari as D-G VON is just temporal and irrespective of his errand gallantry for President Buhari, APC will replace him soon with an Hausa-Fulani man.”
MASSOB further warned politicians against playing politics with the destiny and aspirations of their people, describing it as very dangerous.
