 The Movement for Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has condemned the closure of Lagos Trade Fair market and others by Lagos State government.

It regretted that the international market built by Igbo with their money and economic prowess would be over taken by Lagos State government and allegedly backed by Bola Tinubu, who recently and eloquently manifested himself as a “core hater of Ndigbo and Christians in general.”

MASSOB, in a statement issued yesterday, through its National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, warned that there is a limit to human endurance to oppression, and urged both Federal and Lagos governments to stop pushing Ndigbo to the wall.

It said: “MASSOB, under the leadership of Uchenna Madu, wishes to remind the federal government of Nigeria and Lagos State government that the market and business premises built by Ndigbo has an agreement under leasing, which will last for 99 years.

“Does it mean the government in power has forgotten the agreement or is it another means of punishing Ndigbo because they voted for PDP and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi? It is time for Yoruba leaders to speak out against this evil machinations organised by former Lagos State governor and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Bola Tinubu, on the people of Biafra.

“MASSOB is calling on Ndigbo living in Lagos to think home and also invest at home. Our people should be conscious of their future existence in Nigeria and stop buying land and building houses in Lagos and Ogun States. Ndigbo must stop investing their wealth in unacceptable and unappreciative people, the security of their life and property are not guaranteed.

“MASSOB wondered that if MC Oluomo can use thugs to attack Ndigbo and their businesses in Lagos State with the backing of Bola Tinubu, just because of their political alignment, what then will be the faith of Ndigbo if this kind of man is sworn in as a member of House of Representatives.

“MASSOB is also calling on Ndigbo to relocate all their businesses and investment to Biafra land because a bird in hand is worth two in the bush.”
