The Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has told the international community to rezone the nation, in order to allow everyone conduct their own elections in peace.
The Assistant National Information Director, Mr Sunny Okereafor, revealed this when he spoke to Daily Sun in Umuahia.
He said that his group has already presented a vehicle plate number, bearing United States of Biafra, drivers and vehicle licences, tax receipt, international passport and currency at the World Bank, which are things that make a people a nation, there is the need for Biafrans to stay on their own.

On polls shift, he said: “We are calling on the international community to split Nigeria into six geo-political regions so that every region will go and conduct elections because we want peaceful co-existence. We are a non-violent organization and we are introducing non-violence in all the struggles for self-actualization in the whole of Africa.
“If you remember when President Goodluck Jonathan was making his broadcast in January, he said that a new nation has been born, the nation he was referring to is Biafra. Biafra is around, this is our identity, I am urging all Igbo to go and look for it. It is available in the whole Biafra region,” Okereafor said.
He praised Chief Ralph Uwazurike, for bringing forth the self-actualization struggle, stating that non-violence is their fruit.
“That is why we are preaching non-violence where ever we go, we are a non-violent organization. We have everything to move as a nation. So, all the ethnic groups should go and conduct elections for themselves,” the information boss said.
The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) is a secessionist movement with the aim of securing the resurgence of the defunct state of Biafra from Nigeria. It's headquarters in Okwe, the Okigwe district of Imo State.
