Pro-Biafra group, Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign States of Biafra (MASSOB) has threatened the Federal Government to get ready for another civil war if security agents do not stop killing Biafra agitators.

The group's National Director of Information, Sunny Okereafor, made threat while speaking to Vanguard on Monday, February 22.

MASSOB also threatened to drag the Muhammadu Buhari administration to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at the Hague, over  the killings of pro Biafra protesters.

“MASSOB is worried at the rate at which defenceless pro Biafra agitators are being killed. It is unheard of to have soldiers shoot people who were gathered for prayers. We believe it is a strategy to incite the people of the South East and South-South to war," Okereafor said.

"These are antics we know too well. We refuse to be deceived. The people of the former Eastern region have been thoroughly provoked. MASSOB will not keep quiet at these senseless killings and have decided to let the international community know about the atrocities being committed by Nigerian security agents.

“MASSOB have concluded plans to take our case to the International Court of Justice, Hague. We have compiled our evidences on the killings and the dramatis personae. Our group will not keep quiet on these acts of killings of innocent citizens.”

A combined force of Nigerian soldiers and policemen, had on February 17, attacked an unarmed crowd of Biafra supporters in Abia state, brutalising some women and opening fire of fleeing protesters.
