ALL HAIL BIAFRA
All hail Biafra
Land of the rising sun, we love and cherish
We have vanquished our enemies, all hail Biafra
God Bless Biafra, in Him we trust
Shout it sing it, all hail Biafra
God bless Biafra
We have emerged triumphant, from all our foes
Through the crucible unscathed, we passed victorious
Our trumpets pealing, the glorious song
Play it, sing it, all hail Biafra
Oh hail Biafra
We shall always remember, all that perished,
In the struggle for our freedom, all hail our heroes
Our prayers shall bemoan, both day and night
Say them always, all hail Biafra
All Hail Biafra
Now our star shines everywhere, we crave humility
God guide and protect us all, all hail Your Wisdom
Shielding us from fury, unleashed by our enlightenment
Biafra, Biafra, shinning forever
A quick story of how Igbos were unustifiably duped at the end of the civil war in 1970
At the end of the war, the Nigerian Government ordered that all biafran currencies must be deposited into a bank account immediately or they are worthless. After everyone complied with the directive, they again ordered that every former Biafra account holder will receive only the sum of 20 pounds regardless of how much they had in their account.
This I believe was the most unjustified act of the war as heads of households were forced to rebuild their financial holdings as well as support a typically large African family with only 20 pounds.
