    Nigeria Masterweb received exactly at 8.12 am(US central standard time) by email, a flyer for the launching of Biafra House and symposia in Washington D.C., U.S.A. The launching and symposia are organized by Biafra Foundation and Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra(MASSOB). Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and Chief Ralph Uwazuruike-MASSOB Leader, according to the flyer are the special guests of honor.

    People of the eastern states of Nigeria, both Igbos and non-Igbos have been crying marginalization in the scheme of things by the government. MASSOB believe Igbos are not fully integrated in the Nigerian polity, and that conditions which led to the attempted secession in 1967 and the ensuing war still prevail. The civil war that lasted till January, 1970 claimed about a million lives. Most of the casualties were Biafran civillians who died of starvation from scarcity of food caused by economic blocade of Biafra by the Federal government. MASSOB believe the only way out for Igbos is through self determination under an independent state of Biafra.

    The purpose and functions of Biafra House when launched are yet to be disclosed. A copy of the flyer is reproduced below.
