"All the efforts made to see if Nigeria could be one especially by Biafrans failed woefully instead it resulted into killings, maiming and marginalization of the Biafrans by the Nigeria government, there is nothing better for  this contraption than to divide it let Biafra secede. The Biafra referendum coming up in no distant time will barricade the falsehood of Nigeria unity" She further quoted some verses from the Quran which supported the killings of non-Muslims (the infidels) by the Muslim faithful.
