A war begins, Biafrans goes after Nigerian Muslims!

The Biafrans have launched a war ball by calling the absolute scammers of the Igbo Muslims. It was a big surprise and surprise when a message was posted on the Biafran fan page mentioning the Islamic scammers because they did not have things like Muslims, because according to them Islam. It is a religion that spreads threats and violence, Biafrans who have made this statement can not say that they are not guilty of accusing the same sins by accusing others. Or do we now decide that people are volatile on the basis of their religion?

Biafra, officially the Republic of Biafra, was a separatist state in West Africa that existed from May 30, 1967 to January 1970; It was composed of the states of the eastern region of Nigeria.

Biafra's attempt to leave Nigeria gave rise to the Nigerian civil war. The state was formally recognized by Gabon, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Tanzania and Zambia. Other countries, which did not officially recognize but granted support and assistance to Biafra, included Israel, France, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Rhodesia, South Africa and the Vatican City. Biafra also received assistance from non-state actors, such as Joint Church Aid, Holy Ghost Fathers of Ireland, and led by Caritas International, MarkPress and the US Catholic Relief Services.

The inhabitants were mostly Igbo, who led the secession as a result of economic, ethnic, cultural and religious tensions between the various peoples of Nigeria. Other ethnic groups that were present were the Efik, Ibibio, Annang, Ejagham, Eket, Ibeno and Ijaw among others.

After two and a half years of the war, in which nearly two million citizens Biafran died of hunger, caused by the total blockade of the region by the Nigerian government and the migration of the Igbo people of Biafra in another area each smaller, Biafran forces under the slogan "no winner, no overcome" once surrendered to the federal military government of Nigeria (FMG) and Biafra in Nigeria re-integrated. The surrender was facilitated by Vice President and Chief of Staff of Biafra, Major General Philip Effiong, who fled the leadership of the late Republic after the original chairman, Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu fled to Ivory Coast.

In 1960 Nigeria became independent from the United Kingdom. As with many other new African states, the borders of the country did not reflect any previous ethnic, cultural or religious boundaries. For example, the northern region of the country has a Muslim majority, while the population of the south is predominantly Christian. After independence, Nigeria is largely divided along ethnic lines with Hausa and Fulani mainly in the north, Yoruba and Igbo and majorities in the southwest and southeast, respectively.

In January 1966 there was a military coup in which a group of junior army officers predominantly killed Igbo 30 political leaders, including the Prime Minister of Nigeria, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, and the Prime Minister of the North, Sir Ahmadu Bello. The four highest officers of northern origin were also killed. Nnamdi Azikiwe, the chairman of the Igbo extraction and the prime minister of the southeastern part of the country were not killed and the army commander, General Aguiyi Ironsi, took the power to maintain order.

In July 1966, northern officers and army units organized a setback. Muslim officers appointed general of a small ethnic group (Angas) in the center of Nigeria, General Yakubu "Jack" Gowon, as the head of the federal military government (FMG). The two coups tightened ethnic tensions in Nigeria. In September 1966, about 30,000 Igbo died in the north, and a number of northerners died in violent reactions in eastern cities
