Break Nigeria into Six Zones – BIM, MASSOB Urge UN, World Powers
Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, and Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, have pleaded with the United Nations, UN and other world leaders to divide Nigeria into six geo-political zones as a permanent solution to the myriad of problems facing the nation.
The groups noted that granting the six geo-political zones in Nigeria self-rule would be the only solution to the many challenges.
In a statement signed by the Director of Information of the pro-Biafra group, Chris Mocha, the two groups called on the UN and other super powers to consider the lives of people that are killed on a daily basis in Nigeria arising from insurgency in the North East and Fulani herdsmen and respond to their call.
Mocha said the proposed nations include South East, (Biafra), South-South (Niger Delta), North East, North West, South West, (Oduduwa) and North- Central.
He added that no amount of preaching on nationalism can change Nigeria as it is today.
Mocha further explained that when the said zones are given independence, assets of the citizens of the different countries will be protected by international laws, just as bilateral agreements will guide the future relationship of the new republics.
The group, however, insisted that several members of BIM/MASSOB were killed last week during the Biafra anniversary at Nkpor and Onitsha.
