Biafran Around the World Protests on the 50th anniversary of Nigerian civil war!

Biafrans in London on May 30th staged a protest at Trafalgar Square, London. While in Nigeria, Stay-At-Home Protests brought Southeast Nigeria to a Standstill on the same day, the  50th anniversary of Nigerian civil war.

In Southeast Nigeria, Streets there are usually brimming with civilians and congested with traffic have been deserted in cities and towns in the southeast of Nigeria.

The closure of markets, banks and schools marks the 50th anniversary of the Nigerian civil war.

In 1967, the war ensued between the government of Nigeria and the secessionist state of Biafra.

Those opposing the government represented the nationalist aspirations of the Igbo people, who accused the authorities of failing to develop their areas and felt they could no longer coexist with the northern-dominated federal government.

The three-year war was fought to gain independence for the region and resulted in more than 1 million people being killed.

Critics have said that president Muhammadu Buhari was humiliated by the actions of the Biafra separatist groups with their sit-at-home-order.
