BIM-MASSOB Chieftain Digs Own Grave In Imo Over Insecurity

Listen to article

The Senior Special Assistant to Biafra Independence Movement (BIM) on Media and Publicity, Mazi Chris Mocha has dug his grave at Okwe community in Imo State over the rising insecurity in the Southeast. 

In a statement on Monday, the secessionist said that the tomb was a place he wished that after his death following active service, he would like to be buried there.

The BIM/MASSOB chieftain, who decried the incessant arrests and secret killings of members of his organisation by security agencies, said nobody knew when death would come calling.

Mocha said: ‘The repeated onslaughts by the security agencies have, on many occasions, resulted in casualties on the part of members of our group, not knowing who will be the next victim of death.’

He said he had consequently dug his grave in advance at a cemetery at Umunamu village, Okwe, in Onuimo Local Government of Imo State.

The Eastern Updates reports that the the insecurity bedeviling the Southeast region has been lined to criminality wrapped around Biafra agitation.

This came as the Department of State Services (DSS) accused several criminal gangs in the region of unleashing mayhem.

Imo State Director of DSS, Wilcox Idaminabo, disclosed this during a one-day stakeholders roundtable organised by Centre for Transparency Advocacy (CTA) on the November 11 governorship election in Imo State.

Idaminabo said the destruction and killings were simply criminality and not Biafra agitations.

He urged traditional rulers, clergymen, and Igbo leaders to speak up against the evil of insecurity in the southeast.

According to the DSS Director: ‘What is going on in the Southeast is criminality wrapped around the ideology of Biafra. Biafra is not to kill or destroy because some traditional rulers and religious leaders cannot even stay in their communities. There is no Biafra anywhere.

‘See, when I led operations to Orsu, what we saw was gory, headless bodies, vehicles that had become abandoned, it was terrible.’

Idaminabo queried why during elections in the zone, threats of no elections arise, saying it fuels allegations that it is sponsored by political parties.
