A man believed to be a Biafra veteran warrior has made a revelation on the Nigerian Civil War, also known as the Biafran War.
Naija News recalls that the Nigerian-Biafran War was a war fought between the government of Nigeria and the secessionist state of Biafra.
This online news platform understands that the Nigerian-Biafran war which involved the Nigerian military and the Biafra soldiers took place between 6 July 1967 and 15 January 1970.
In a video sighted by Naija News, the Biafra Veteran Warrior could be seen demonstrating what happened at the battlefield during the Biafran war.
The Biafra Veteran Warrior performed what happened at the Biafran battle camp during the Biafran war when he was surrounded by pro-Biafra activists who sang a “Biafran war song“. It is believed that the veteran’s actions were sparked by the resonance of the song.
Ekwo tweeted: “A Biafran veteran began to perform an action that happened on a battle when he heard young Biafrans singing a Biafran war song, amazing!”

Meanwhile, Naija News recalls that Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, the late Biafra warlord, started the struggle for the Republic of Biafra, a struggle he won when Biafra came into existence as a country but later lost after Biafra stopped existing as a country.
After Ojukwu’s demise, Ralph Uwazuruike picked up the Biafra struggle, becoming the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), a secessionist movement in Nigeria, associated with Igbo nationalism, which supports the recreation of an independent state of Biafra.
However, Kanu, who at the time was under Uwazuruike, left the MASSOB founder, to create his own group with the name IPOB, which has since become the most vibrant Biafra group in Nigeria of recent.
