Veteran Nollywood Actor, Chiwetalu Agu has said that despite the resistance of the Federal Government of Nigeria, Biafra must become an Independent nation.
The legendary screen god made this submission at his residence in Enugu State during an interview session with BBC News Igbo which was broadcasted live on Facebook.
Mr Agu during the interview that lasted for almost 2 hours noted that he was about 12 years old when the Biafra war started in 1967.
According to him, he participated actively in serving food to the soldiers and wounded people at Amaigbo Hospital located in Orlu, Imo State which means that he was already of age and understand completely what the Igbo people suffered during the 3-year long civil war.
Insisting that the Nigerian state hate the Igbos and have stifled them economically since after the war, Agu stated unequivocally that Biafra will someday get its independence.
The actor used Israel as a case-study when he compared what Igbos are going through in Nigeria to the Jewish people who according to him passed through similar ordeal in the hands of the Egyptians but later became free and even more powerful than Egypt.
