Cremate my corpse after death – MASSOB leader Uwazuruike

Cremate my corpse after death - MASSOB leader Uwazuruike

Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has publicly asked for cremation of his corpse when he dies. 

The separatist group leader who made the request at an enlarged  meeting of MASSOB held at Ojukwu Memorial Library in Owerri, said his decision was in line with the lifestyle Mahatma Ghandhi who is one of his heroes after Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.

Uwazurike warned against being buried when he dies at the meeting and further directed that the ashes from his cremation be sprayed into the flowing rivers in Igboland.  

“If I die today get planks and tyres and make blazing flames  and burn  my  corpse to ashes, then gather  these ashes in different  parts. Make sure  that you dump them inside the flowing  River  Niger in Onitsha,  Imo River in Owerrinta, Ezu River in Amansea, Orashi and Ogbuide in Oguta,  Omambala River in Otuocha  and every other flowing  streams in Biafraland.

“When  you throw my burnt ashes into the flowing rivers, allow the streams to  carry them away.

“Apart from these, every other burial rites due  for an illustrious  son  must be performed  for me. It is not as if I’m dying now, but  in case, death is  a necessary end  that comes  when  it  will  come,” Uwazuruike requested.
