The nation that would have been the star of Africa if not for the evil British. The nation of one of the brightest and most enterprising people on Earth, the Igbos.
Unlike the Igbos, the Yorubas are often content to be the bitches of Hausa-Fulani.

One day Biafra we will be reborn and leave Nigeria's sorry ass.

It is a Nation. The word Biafra is coind from two IGBO WORDS 'bia' which means COME and 'fara' which means LIVE. The people are part of the AFAR ethnic group in the horn of Africa, although CHRISTIANS. They are also from NRI KINGDOM and part of the LOST TRIBE OF ISRAEL.They were amalgameted to be part of Nigeria in 1914 by the British government led by Frederick Lugard. The people of Biafra do not see themselves as NIGERIANS. Between 6 July 1967 and 15 January 1970, about 3.5 million Biafrans were killed in a genocide war led by the British and the Nigerian government when they seceded from Nigeria.They lost the war and were once more integrated into Nigeria.They own the eastern and southern part of Nigeria. They are still seeking for their freedom Independence from Nigeria. The nationality is Biafran.

Used to be a country for eastern people of Nigeria from 1976 to 1970.
Then the eastern people of Nigerians were called Biafrans when they rebelled against Nigeria and form their own soverignty.

Biafrans are people of the eastern part of Nigeria mostly Igbos.

Background
In 1967, Igbos and other eastern part of Nigeria, lead by then Col. Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu declared eastern Nigeria a Sovereign state of Biafra. This led to the three years Nigerian-Biafran Civil war in which millions were slaughter in a fight for self-determination. The Nigeria underestimated the young country and thought that the war would last for three weeks. Instead, weeks turned months and months turned years. It took Nigeria three years to defeat Biafra. Biafrans were reintegrated into Nigeria again as One-Nigeria

Most of Nigerian oil reserves are located at the Bright of Biafra. That is why Nigeria went to war with Biafra.
Ojukwu still believe that he is a Biafran.

There are a lot of Igbos that still consider themesleves as Biafrans
