Editor’s note: The issue concerning the agitation for the free and sovereign state of the Republic of Biafra has continued to gather momentum despite the detention of the leader of Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu. While some Nigerians throw their support behind the idea, some others do not buy into it.
In this piece, Evangelist Oscar Godwin Ogandu, the Legit.ng contributor analyses the reason British and the Nigerian government don’t want Biafra Republic.
It is crystal clear that the major reason the British and the Nigeria governments don't want Biafra Republic to secede from the Federal Republic of Nigeria is because during the three years Biafra war which lasted from 1967 - 1970, the Biafra people manufactured all the weapons which they used to fight in the war without importing a single weapon from any other country worldwide.
Also, after the Biafra war, the Federal Republic of Nigeria government confiscated all the Biafra people’s money in the bank and only gave them twenty pounds to each Biafrans, regardless of how much they had in the bank but today reverse is the case because Biafra people are the most successful people in Nigeria.
