    UK is part of Nigeria problem. We the Biafrans has been clamoring for Baifra which is our right, but it has fall on deaf ears. You cant tell me that you are not aware of the fat that Nigerian government has committed lots of genocide on biafrans. We need to end Nigeria so every part of Nigeria will go their separate ways. Unity is not by force
