Over my Dead Body, There will Never be Biafra – Lauretta Onochie

Lauretta Onochie, Senior Special Assistant on Social Media to President Muhammadu Buhari, has reacted to the attacks on the Imo Police Headquarters and the Correctional Centers in Owerri, the state capital.

In a tweet via her Twitter handle on Monday, the presidential aide said there will never be the Republic of Biafra again.

Onochie tweeted a video showing the then Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, receiving the then Biafran Vice President, Major General Philip Effiong, who facilitated the surrender of the Biafran State to Nigeria in 1970.

Effiong had assumed leadership of the secessionist state after the Biafran leader, Colonel Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, fled to Ivory Coast in the heat of the civil war.

“The very day nails were put in the coffin of Biafra. There’ll never be Biafra again, Never!” the President’s aide captioned the video.
