Adamu Garba Reacts In A Recent Post Online, Says Biafra And Boko Haram Share The Same Ideology

Biafra, also known as the Republic of Biafra, was a secessionist state in the western part of Africa that came into existence years ago and lasted for just three years during the civil war in Nigeria. It consists of the Eastern part of Nigeria, however, it seized to exist following their loss in the Biafran war led by late Ojukwu. Some years later, a group of agitators called IPOP rose intending to restore the Biafra land, however, they posed a danger to the unity of Nigeria making the federal government tag them a terrorist group.

Over the years, people have tried to connect the intention of the Biafrans to that of a popular terrorist group in Nigeria called Boko Haram, they are known for suicide bombing, kidnapping, and killing of unarmed civilians. Some said that they are both terrorist organizations and the federal government fueled this claim by declaring IPOP a terrorist group.

In a recent tweet by Adamu Garba, he cites Biafra as a terrorist group and alleged that they share the same ideology with Boko Haram but based their actions on different religious beliefs. He stated that Biafra hides under the doctrine of Judaism while Boko Haram hides under another religion. See his tweet below.

However, some people countered his claims by sharing their own thoughts.

As you can see from the comments above, everyone is coming from a different angle based on their thoughts and understandings. If I'm to share my opinion, I would clearly say that any group that disturbs the peace of the people and poses danger to the unity of any nation should be flagged. Your intention does not matter but the aftermath of your actions does. If you disagree with me, feel free to share your thoughts below. We will be delighted to hear from you.
