Uwazuruike, who spoke through the MASSOB National Director of Information, Sunday Okereafor on Friday, stated that the freedom fighting group was happy that for 19 years , the group had maintained peace and non violence in their quest for the actualisation of Republic of Biafra , in the face of crackdown by Nigeria ’ s security operatives .

He stated that the primary essence of peaceful celebration was to tell the world that non violence was the surest and highest weapon to fight a common enemy , which he called Nigeria .

“ Kudos to MASSOB to have kept the struggle without violence for 19 years now . The Igbo nations should expect Biafra without gunshot . I want to assure all of them agitating for Biafra and entire Biafran land that the much – coveted Biafra Republic is at our doorstep ” , he said .

He , however , advised that Nigeria ’ s military should leave the Igbo nation alone and channel their strength to the troubled Northern area where he said , was bedeviled with incessant mass murder of innocent citizens .
