In Nigeria today, there is renewed agitation for the creation of the separatist Biafra republic. The 3-year Biafra war led to the death of some 3 million Igbo people, according to Biafra supporters. Here is a summary of five Igbo demands, each one a memorial symbolising their resilience in surviving five decades of the longest, continuous running genocide of recent history.

It is indeed extraordinary that Muhammadu Buhari, head of regime of Nigeria, would pose the question ‘What do the Igbo want?’, albeit rhetorically, during a tortured effort to answer a question on Biafra from a panel of ‘selected’ journalists in Abuja on 30 December 2015. 

 

The mere mention of the country Biafra in the presence of any Nigerian genocidist operative creates a disorienting collapse in them. It appears they are transposed, instantly, to re-live the multiform slaughtering spree they unleashed in the enveloping savagery of 44 months (29 May 1966-12 January 1970) of the Igbo genocide. Some commentators have described this resultant torpidity in these genocidists as ‘the curse’.
