Biafra agitators hire 500 pastors and prayer warriors

The Chief Ralph Uwazuruike’s faction of the Movement for the Actualisa­tion of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) under Biafra Independence Movement has raised over 500 pastors and prayer warriors to pray for the immediate actualization of Biafra.

Disclosing this, yesterday, after a meeting at Grace Accord Mission, Ndiakwu Otolo, Nnewi, Anambra State, MASSOB State Coordinator of Religion in Anambra, Pastor Ani Nwede James, said the group had decided to renew what he described as its covenant with God.

He said the group which is identified as Biafran Clergy Men would be backing up its prayers with oc­casional fasting to draw down the hand of God. Pastor James explained that the move to go spiritual to actualize Biafra started 16 years ago. He added that there were prayer sessions that lasted hours “during which period we covered ourselves with the blood of Jesus to prepare us for the task ahead.”

He called on Ohaneze Ndigbo, Churches and other reli­gious leaders to join them in the crusade to actualize Biafra. On the recent statement credited to Pres. Buhari that Biafra would never be achieved, James said they had already petitioned God over it.
