Many years after the Biafran Civil war, we keep seeing events that led to the war repeat it’s self. From Arewa republic asking Igbos to leave “their Land” to People being pressured to accepting what they are not and some of the hate speech on/against radio Biafra.
A Nigerian Corp Member “Godwin” has narrated how he was almost nabbed for being “less Biafran” if not for his corperation something bad would have happened. Read his experience and let us know what you think in the comment box.
HOW I ACCEPTED I AM A BIAFRAN
Viewing the beautiful sight of the Garden City Port Harcourt i decided to visit the popular mile one market to get some stuffs.
I was trying to make purchase when i heard a guy shouting the price of what he was selling in Biafra currency, i asked him ” you are using biafra currency in a Nigerian State” playfully, that was the only thing i said, he dropped the cloths move towards me and Asked me who i was, where i came from, who is my president, which State is Nigerian State, as all these questions dropped at once.
He shouted am a Biafran, my people the next thing i saw i was rounded up in the market, when i look at their faces i know am in Trouble, some of them felt like hitting me, Thank God for my stature and the little Igbo i know, even the guy i wanted to buy something from denied me, i had to speak a little Igbo and declare i was a Biafran.
Now am trying to process the information in my head, what would have happened if i didn’t admit
As a Corper
Nigeria is Ours
Nigeria we serve.
I pray for this Country Called Nigeria, History should not repeat itself in a Violent manner.
