THE BIAFRAN QUESTION
There is something I have always been pondering on? Do these people really want to go? As in, do the majority of the people want to go. Do they really want separate existence?

Let us tow the line of diplomacy, another war can not be risked. The weird thing is, if a war starts, these 'leaders' will not suffer. During the Civil War, Colonel ... continues 👇👇
