Massob Hires 500 Pastors To Pray For Sovereign Igbo Nation


BEVERLY HILLS, May 14, (THEWILL) – Chief Ralph Uwazuruike faction of the Move­ment for the Actualisa­tion of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, under the auspices of Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, has raised over 500 pastors and prayer warriors across the region to pray for the immediate actualisation of a sover­eign Igbo nation.

Disclosing this on Friday after a meeting at Grace Accord Mission, Nnewi, Anambra State, MAS­SOB State Coordinator of Religion in Anambra, Pas­tor Ani Nwede James disclosed that the meeting witnessed prayer sessions that lasted hours “during which period we covered ourselves with the blood of Jesus to prepare us for the task ahead.”

He explained that the group, identified as Biafran Cler­gy Men, had decided to renew what he described as its covenant with God, adding that they would be backing up their prayers with oc­casional fasting to draw down the hand of God.

James, who called on Ohaneze Ndigbo, churches and other reli­gious leaders to join them in the crusade to actualise the sovereign state of Bi­afra, explained that the move to go spiri­tual to actualise Biafra started sixteen years ago but had only come to ful­filment this year.

On the recent state­ment credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that Biafra would never be achieved, he said the clergymen had al­ready petitioned God over that, saying that anybody who in any imagination thought that Biafra would not be actualised was hav­ing a day dream “because it is a task that must be done.”

The pastors also called on rampaging Fulani herdsmen to leave “Biafran land” for good, warning that God's anger would descend on them for spilling innocent blood.
