The controversial issues that surround the arrest and how the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra will be released from the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, in Abuja have resulted in media battles between the Northern and Southern parts of Nigeria.
While some respected leaders from the Southeast region are making efforts to get their son (Nnamdi Kanu) out of the custody with the out- of- court settlement, the Coalition of Northern Group, CNG, has called on the President never to accept such demand because it’ s a threat to the unity of the country.
However, while replying to the statement credited to Suleiman Abdul- led CNG, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has described the Northern people under the Coalition of Northern Group as cowards, and mere street boys who are serving the Fulani northern oligarchy.
According to The Independent, the Biafra group made this known in a statement made available to journalists on Wednesday by its National Director of Information, Comrade Edeson Samuel.
Comrade Samuel said CGN is working for the Fulani to impose Islamic rule on Nigerians, stressed that they are also working for herdsmen, the bandits, Boko Haram, ISWAP, and President Muhammadu Buhari’ s government.
Comrade Samuel said, ” MASSOB will always see CNG as a bunch of cowards, charlatans, and street boys that are always at the service of Fulani northern oligarchy and their mission of enthroning Islamic fundamentalism in Nigeria.
” They are working for the northern- based Islamic terrorist organizations including the Fulani herdsmen, Fulani bandits, Boko Haram, ISWAP, and president Muhammed Buhari- led Federal Government. ”
He further added that the Northern group need to call for the arrest of Sheik Gumi and avoid Nnamdi Kanu’ s issues.
” The Suleiman Abdul- led CNG has failed to call for the arrest of Sheik Gummi who has been negotiating, dining, and speaking for terrorist criminals and bandits that are killing, kidnapping, and causing genocide in northern Nigeria, ” he added.
