The leader of Biafra Independence Movement
(BIM), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has included
opening of another Radio Biafra in Germany as part
of activities lined up to mark the 18 years of the
founding of the Movement for the Actualization of
Sovereign State of Biafra, (MASSOB), which he said
was formed September 13, 1999.

In a statement to newsmen on Monday in Onitsha,
Anambra State, signed by Biafra Director of
Information, Mazi Chris Mocha, Uwazuruike noted
that the celebration proper of 18 years of MASSOB
would take place in Onitsha, Anambra State on
September 13.

He noted that other activities lined up for the 18
years of non-violence and non-exodus by MASSOB
would also feature the official opening of Voice of
Biafra International (VOBI), radio located in
Germany, which would lead to the radio
commencing broadcast on short wave (SW) band,
this week.

The statement further quoted Uwazuruike as saying
that the radio station would be the “authentic voice
of the Biafran people and always educate, inform
and enlighten our people on the issue of Biafra and
not to spread hate messages or blackmail.”

The statement maintained that “BIM would continue
to play a leading role in our quest for Biafra” ,
assuring Ndigbo that it is only non-violence that
will lead them to Biafra independence without firing
a gunshot.

On Anambra State governorship election fixed for
November 18, the statement added that its
members would suffocate Anambra as the Ijele
Ndigbo, Uwazuruike and BIM will visit Onitsha in
solidarity with Chief Willie Obiano to tell him and
Ndi-Anambra that the election must hold on
November 18 as planned.
