    They are just trying to divert attention and give it another meaning. Why not discuss Buhari APC govt result/scorecard for 2years? I can now see that this Biafra matter is really disturbing and giving all of them sleepless nights and their BP is so high, if not how come a country and their leaders like Obasanjo who says Biafra is dead and buried after over 50 years is still talking about Biafra, something is happening somewhere, it means the message is getting across to the audience even when they act or show ignorance of the massive global March by Biafrans for Biafra restoration, Nnamdi Kanu, IPoB and other groups and individual working so hard for their nation Biafra, I salute u all, you guys have really done greatly well, they world know better and heats you now, Biafrans loud and clear
