Stop insulting Ojukwu, MASSOB warns Danjuma


The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has warned the former Minister of Defence, Lt. Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd.), to stop insulting the late Biafran warlord, Dim. Chukwuemeka Ojukwu.

The gruop said this while expressing its dissatisfaction with the statement credited to Danjuma that the prolonged Nigerian/Biafran civil war resulted in a grave bloodbath because Ojukwu did not concede defeat when Enugu fell.
Sounding the note of warning, the MASSOB leader, Chief Ralph Uwazurike, said MASSOB would not keep quiet while the name of its founder was dragged into the mud in the name of playing politics.
Speaking in Onitsha, Anambra State, Uwazuruike recalled that the then Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, refused to abide by the Aburi Accord because people like Danjuma and others advised him not to abide by the accord, which prolonged the war that claimed many lives.
Uwazuruike, who spoke through his Personal Assistant and the Nnewi North Regional Administrator, Emmanuel Omenka, said, “He has been insulting Ojukwu. What is the concern of Ojukwu in the conceding of defeat  to General Mohammadu Buhari by President Goodluck Jonathan?”
“If Danjuma and his cohorts did not support Gowon, the war would have been averted.”
