Biafra Nation Had Referendum In May 1967 (READ THIS)



Whenever the topic of Biafra Nation is raised, there are usually different assertions by the Northern Nigeria and the Southern Nigeria on it. Could this be the reason why History as a subject was wiped from Nigerian schools?

Here is a an opinion about Biafra Nation referendum validation after The Igbos agreed to be part of Nigeria no more back in May 1967 which led to the death of about 5 Million Igbos which included women and children.

In real fact of history, the then Nigerian Military had a funfare killing unarmed Igbos because they feel they could.

Here is Maiyegun General’s take on the Biafran Civil War which lasted for 3 years (1967-1970). Yakubu Gowon was head of states when all this happened.

Biafrans voted in a Referendum to leave Nigeria on 26th May, 1967. Four days later, the administrator of Eastern Region at the time, Ojukwu declared Biafra independence; Gowon the honcho head of the northern military government moved the tanks into the Eastern Nigeria after all resolutions to get Biafrans back to Nigeria failed – 5million killed.


How many of you knew there was actually a Referendum for Biafra in 1967 and nearly 100% of the people voted to leave?

They didn’t want them to leave because of the Niger Delta crude oil.

Well, it was due to the killings of Igbos in Kano and North after the 1966 Gowon coup that things finally broke down.

Awolowo was Nigeria’s finance minister, Obasanjo was there and that coward Murtala that killed unarmed men in Asaba and children when Nigerian army he led called people to come out of their hiding, that the war was over and when the civilians came out, men were separated and executed right there – their women raped and killed too.

These guys didn’t remove history from Nigerians schools for no reason, they are criminals and history will never be kind to them

I don’t need your like, I don’t need your validation. If you don’t like what I do, unfollow my page or I’ll kick you out myself if you come here with your usual stupid Nigerian mentality with foolish questions.
