We’re not against Kumuyi’s crusade –MASSOB

Apparently some weeks ago, as reported in some blogs, there had been a threat(hate speech) to Pastor Kumuyi’s scheduled crusade in the city of Aba aired over radio Biafra intended to incite the indigenes against the Yorubas and also anything that has to do with deeper life church; here the MASSOB is now clarifying issues dissociating itself from the purported threat.

KumuyiThe 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 an 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.
