The most trending news on the social media today has been the solidarity match by Biafran supporters, a separatist group in Nigeria. Tweets coming from Biafran Herald, Radio Biafra have photos of the solidarity match by thousands of Biafran in major cities of South East and South South to commemorate the inauguration ceremony of the President-Elect of America, Donald Trump.
It is mostly believed among this group of Biafrans that the President-Elect is going to use his influence in the UN to negotiate for the secession of Biafra from Nigeria owing to the historic Civil War of 1967-70 where it is purported and acclaimed that the Nigerian Government committed series of genocide before and during the civil war. This claim has gathered momentum in the last one year owing to the arrest and detention of the leader of IPOB Nnamdi Kanu, the most viable group fighting for the independence of Biafra.
The group however hopes that Trump on his ascension will call for a referendum through the UN permitting the Biafrans to vote for or against secession of Biafrans from Nigeria.
