From CHUKS ONUOHA, Umuahia
The Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has said that Biafran state is a Godly nation that cannot afford to ward off men of God like W. F. Kumuyi from preaching in the land of Biafra.
It, therefore, warned those involved in the campaign of calumny through their pocket radio broadcast, in the name of Radio Biafra, against Kumuyi’s crusade in Abia State, to desist from the act or face the wrath of God.
MASSOB stated this in Umuahia, Abia State capital, through Ansalem Ogbonna, the Umuahia North Information Coordinator of the movement.
Ogbonna said it came to their notice that some unscrupulous people, who were not MASSOB members, were in the comfort of their homes or cars, dishing out, in uncultured languages, information that MASSOB would not want Pastor William Kumuyi to come to Abia and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
He said the movement was therefore, exonerating itself from such act and called on security operatives to arrest and deal with such people according to the law of the land.
“It has come to our notice that some unscrupulous persons have been broadcasting and threatening the man of God who is coming to Umuahia on a missionary journey. We want to make it categorically clear that MASSOB is not part of the campaign against W. F. Kumuyi coming to preach the gospel in Biafra land (Abia), because Biafra is a Godly nation,” Ogbonna said.
He urged the public to disregard such information, stating that there was a time they worked with someone, who was broadcasting for them, but that when they discovered that he was not actually coordinated, due to the way he was insulting people on air including members of the movement, they sacked him in 2010.
MASSOB, he said was not a deviant or violent organisation and could not afford to accommodate any one who did not have respect for the good people of Biafra and her neighbours.
“We are a peaceful and Godly nation that welcomes men of God on a missionary work, so, we are behind Kumuyi and his team coming to preach here. We don’t have anything to do with those dishing out such information on the air,” Ogbonna said.
