The term "Justice"suggests equal rights to humanity and whoever is denied of his rights either of existence or of living ,amounts to an injustice done. Speaking of the injustice against Biafraland in particular, one of the first injustices against her that quickly comes to mind deals with the head count and election in Nigeria in the 1950's conducted by the British government at the time of their handing over.
The head count and election recorded many irregularities. The election was rigged against the people of the southern part -precisely ,BIAFRALAND in favour of the Hausa-Fulani of the Northern part. This is injustice in action. Unfortunately the Hausas to whom they handed over power followed their footsteps. They manifest several injustices against Biafra from the time of that hand over. They started with marginalisation. Marginalisation is injustice against a particular race living in a particular region of a society. Hatred is another form of injustice. You can imagine that after the Biafra-Nigeria war up till now, no one from Biafraland has been appointed inspector general of police(IGP).
Now take a look at the composition of the Buhari (APC) led administration, his appointment is centered on the Hause-Fulani and some Yoruba.
The distribution of federal allocation is channelled to the muslim north than the south where the resource comes from. More states and local government areas are created in the north than in Biafra land. One does not need to look too closely to see that there is little or less federal presence in Biafra land.
From all indications it readily appears that the restoration of Biafra is the solution to all of these injustices.
