Morris Monye, a social prophet and convener of the movement Nigeria has taken on his twitter handle to share some history about Biafra and how Biafra engineers-built weapons “Ogbunigwe” and refineries their oil during Nigeria Biafra war.
However, some Nigerians has reacted on twitter, saying Nigeria was specially designed not to work that tribalism and greed is sending the country backwards.
Morris wrote via twitter:
During the civil war, gallant Biafran (I am careful not to say Igbo because Biafra consisted of S.S people) troops and engineers had all sorts of weapons built by themselves namely the “Ogbunigwe”. These people also built makeshift refineries to refine their own petrol
These refineries served Biafrans, oiled the war and even got them some revenue. Fast forward 50+ yrs after with technology and money, Nigeria cannot refine her own crude oil. We can’t refine as a country. You can’t tell me that the problem of this country is not man-made.
