Over 500 pastors and prayer warriors have been gathered by the Chief Ralph Uwazuruike’s faction of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) for actualization of the Biafra nation, Daily sun is reporting.
MASSOB State Coordinator of Religion in Anambra, Pastor Ani Nwede James made this known to newsmen adding that 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 actualise Biafra started sixteen years ago but had only come to fulfilment this year.
The clergy called on Ohaneze Ndigbo, Churches and other religious leaders to join them in the crusade to actualise the sovereign state of Biafra.
Commenting on the recent statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari that Biafra would never be achieved, Pastor James said the clergymen had already petitioned God over that, saying that anybody who in any imagination thought that Biafra would not be actualised was having a day dream “because it is a task that must be done.”
The pastors also told the Fulani herdsmen to leave “Biafran land” for good as God’s anger would descend on them for spilling innocent blood.
Meanwhile, 5,000 protesting members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have said President Buhari that he cannot stop the actualization of a sovereign state of Biafra.
