Good one. From your point of view though. There is also another line of thought to it. These tribes existed before the civil war and the same victimization occurred back then as it occurs now. War is won on paper, but when it is a multi dimensional front war, the largest group almost always win. In War college, its a ‘divide and rule tactics’. A lot can go well and a lot can go wrong in a war…I don’t pray we see one in my time. I’ve seen videos and first hand reports from my father and his colleagues of… Read more »

I want to start by saying that I am not in support of Biafra or any attempts to break Nigeria but decided to do this write up because of some comments I read on this forum lately.

You are one of the few individuals I respect on this forum even though we are almost always on opposite political sides, but I think you are mistaken.

Neither history nor currency is on the side of Biafra. Only two secessionist movements have ever succeeded in Africa: Eritrea from Ethiopia after 30 years of war, and South Sudan from Sudan in 2011 after 22 years of war – the latter still as war-torn as the pre-2011 Sudan. Herein lies the lesson for Biafra agitators: Secession from Nigeria will not solve their problems unless accompanied by conscientious leadership.

Nigeria, meanwhile, must go back 50 years to draw its own lessons: These types of agitations can lead to war.

Nigeria won’t survive another war, these days you’ll hardly see any civil war without vultures(outsider), they’ll help you then turn ur country to military base, last week, Syrian government complained that USA is stealing their oil and that’s exactly what they will do to Nigeria with such huge mineral deposit

What do you think?
