Chief Ralph Uwazuruike-led Biafra Independence Movement has raised over 500 pastors and prayer warriors across the region to pray for the immediate freedom of the independent state of Biafra.
Making this disclosure on Friday, 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.
According to him, 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 and rescue their people from the zoo called Nigeria.”
Pastor James explained that the move to go spiritual to actualise Biafra started sixteen years ago but had only come to fulfilment this year.
During the Nnewi meeting, he disclosed 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.”
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 of His people.
