Many have heard about the sovereign Biafra Nation, but don't understand how the name was coined, we live in a nation were people don't bother to know history anymore, as Biafra agitators continue to fight for their freedom, it is important to note that, Nigeria is going to be more united and develop faster if we remain as one country.
However, it will surprise you that the man who coined out biafra is not an Igbo man but from Ijaw in Bayelsa State, his name is Frank Opigo, so the history of Biafra cannot be complete without mentioning the Ijaws, even though they do not support the movement.
As the Nigerian government continue to struggle for development in several parts of the country let us endure with them and stop the agitations, it will create more unrest in the country which may lead to lose of lives and properties, let us push towards peace and unity.
