HOW I ACCEPTED I AM A BIAFRAN
Viewing the beautiful sight of the Garden City Port Harcourt i decided to visit the popular mile one market to get some stuffs.
I
was trying to make purchase when i heard a guy shouting the price of
what he was selling in Biafra currency, i asked him ” you are using
biafra currency in a Nigerian State” playfully, that was the only thing i
said, he dropped the cloths move towards me and Asked me who i was,
where i came from, who is my president, which State is Nigerian State,
as all these questions dropped at once.
He shouted am a Biafran,
my people the next thing i saw i was rounded up in the market, when i
look at their faces i know am in Trouble, some of them felt like hitting
me, Thank God for my stature and the little Igbo i know, even the guy i
wanted to buy something from denied me, i had to speak a little Igbo
and declare i was a Biafran.
Now am trying to process the information in my head, what would have happened if i didn’t admit
As a Corper
Nigeria is Ours
Nigeria we serve.
I pray for this Country Called Nigeria, History should not repeat itself in a Violent manner.
