30th May: Biafran Remembrance Day.

On this day (30th May 1967), 49 years ago, Biafra was declared in response to the pogrom, killings and genocide against Igbos in Northern and Western Nigeria.

Biafran Republic was declared to provide Igbos,with security and safety of their lives and properties. Then Nigerian government, in collaboration with imperialistic British government and other foreign powers, declared war on Igbos. At the end of which, over 2 million of Igbos paid the supreme sacrifice. Never again will it happen to Igbos.

Kindly pause and observe a two minute silence for the fallen heroes and heroines. They laid down their lives, that we might have our today. May their souls and other faithfully departed rest in peace.
