Biafra: 9 Facts You Should Know About The Biafra Republic

have noticed some miscommunication and misperceptions about what the Biafra movement is about. Here are 9 key facts about the NEW BIAFRA that everyone should know.
(1) Biafran agitation has nothing to do with hydrocarbon crude oil deposits in Niger Delta. Imo, Abia, Anambra are currently oil producing states in Nigeria, with huge natural gas reserves not forgetting the enormous untapped coal deposits in Enugu.
(2) Biafra is not land-locked. It has numerous access to the sea, including through the River Niger.
(3) Biafra entire population is about 35 million people which is greater than the population many advanced countries in Western Europe, including Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Holland, Austria….etc
(4) Biafra does not or in any form signify war, violence, armed struggle or any sort of physical confrontation. BIAFRA IS NOT WAR! It simply means political, economic and socio-cultural freedom from a feudalist State ruled by terrorists and Jihadists.

(5) Biafra is not a call for massive exodus to Igbo land. Put differently, every Igbo or Biafran must not live in Biafra land. Those who wish could still maintain their residency wherever they are as well as own properties anywhere in the world, including Lagos, Abuja, Kaduna, Kano, Abeokuta…etc.
(6) Independent and sovereign Biafra will never translate to loss or forfeiture of landed properties of her citizens in Lagos, Abuja or anywhere in Nigeria. There are many domestic and international treaties, conventions and laws that protects Assets of non-citizens everywhere in the World, that will apply appropriately.
(7) The NEW BIAFRA shall be a coalition of desirous and willing ethnic nationalities in defunct Eastern Nigeria and would never be a forceful annexation of any unwilling ethnic nationality within its current geo-political definition. Ijaws, Ogonis, Ibibio, Anangs, Efiks, Ogojas, and host of other ethnic minorities shall possess the privilege to decide whether to tango politically with their Igbo brethren or go their own separate ways or remain part of current structural deficient Nigeria.
(8) Biafra is a train of peace and liberty. A desire for liberation from institutionalised stumbling blocks like quota system and federal character principles in Nigeria’s quasi-unitary society. It is a movement against internal colonialism, tribal gang-ups, economic marginalisation and political subjugation of Igbo and ethnic minority neighbours.
(9) It has nothing to do with hate, bigotry or ethnic chauvinism. Just a desire to live in a healthy society where your tribe, tongue, religion or creed does not define who you are or how far you would go in your career.

  2. Nice one, but I hasten to add that NONE OF THE ETHNIC GROUPS making up Biafra Land or the Eastern Region, is "A MINORITY" . We are all related. The same gene run in our veins. As our Director have always said, "you can not be a minority in your father's house🏡".

    The Willink Commission, which came up with the idea of "minority" was a British motivated idea of "DIVIDE AND RULE". It was aimed at creating dichotomy between us and cousins. Same for the recent appendage known as "NIGER DELTA".

    The gospel from Radio Biafra, through Nnamdi Kanu, has broken those barriers and our people are now united as one indivisible family👪!

    All Hail #Biafra! Land of the Rising Sun!!

    2. You are absolutely right, and well-informed. The so-called minorities are no other than fellow Biafrans, ancestral siblings of Igbo-speaking Biafrans.

  6. I DO HOPE THAT THIS ADEKUNLE IS NOT RELATED TO THE NIGERIAN SOLDIER THAT LEADS THE TROOP FROM PORTHARCOURT THAT ASKED THEM TO KILL ALL LIVING AND NON LIVING THINGS IN BIAFRAN LAND. AND FOR THE WRITE UP:WELL SPOKEN,THOUGH THERE IS NO MINORITY AMONG US AND WE ARE NOT BEGGING ANY GROUP TO BE PART OF BIAFRA. IF U.N. GIVES THE GO AHEAD FOR THE BIAFRAN FREEDOM THEN EVERY GROUP WITHIN BIAFRA WILL DECIDE EITHER TO BELONG TO BIAFRA OR TO REMAIN IN NIGERIA.

  10. The fact is if its possible to achieve this alone as Igbo Biafran, i would most gratefully appreciate God. Because the Niger Deltas or south south do not accept us especially the Ikwerre's who are even minority in the south south through not all. But i fear its goner be difficult. Actually we have suffered a lot in present day Nigeria politically,structurally, economically, educationally name it. I believe we can make because we have the population, knowledge etc. But no much about our boundaries. If we must go as eastern region we must sit down and talk sincerely on the structure of such a nation and power sharing formular.

  12. I fear for this Biafra oo, are u sure u will stand as one? reading from most of ur comment most of u are already seeing other tribes as minority, plus u keep saying igbo speaking Biafrans, so what do u want other tribes to believe? u have not even started yet u are already intimidating other tribes with ur comments forgetting that the first time Biafra started with Ojukwu and ibebio man that actually die for this course while Ojukwu escape. na wa to una oo. u have not started yet and u are already doing what u people are complaining Nigeria to some tribes with ur comments.
