“… he was not a troublemaker. In fact, he went out of his way to avoid trouble… He was actually peace loving and gentle… But what I noticed about him, as he was growing up, was that he detested injustice. He did not like to a see a fellow human being victimised. He would never be part of anything that involved the persecution, or victimisation of a fellow human being.”
History of Biafra
A Land Without Kings
Biafraland has a long, rich history, marked by ideals of republicanism and participatory government. It was said long ago that “the Igbo have no kings”.
Independence and the Biafran War
Following Nigeria’s independence from Britain six years earlier, 1966 saw a series of massacres against people of Igbo origin then living in northern Nigeria.
Since losing the war, the Biafran people have continued to face persecution and marginalisation. Investigations reveal how peaceful, pro-Biafran gatherings
Our Mission And Vision
The ultimate goal of Nnamdi Kanu and the organisation he founded, IPOB, is a free Biafra.
The provision of universal healthcare, free at the point of delivery for all Biafrans is the goal of the Republic of Biafra’s healthcare policy.
A PEACEFUL REFERENDUM
The first policy of Nnamdi’s IPOB is the call for a peaceful referendum on the issue of self-determination.
The people of Biafraland have always prized good education and have been among some of the most highly educated people of West Africa.
No Republic can thrive without a flourishing democratic tradition. Luckily Biafrans have a long tradition of celebrating and exercising democratic rights from before the colonial period.
