Meet The Man Who Created The Name Biafra, He Is Not An Igbo Man

Many people have heard about the Biafran nation but not many know much about its history, how it came about and also how the name was coined.
Surprisingly, the name Biafra didn’t come from an Igbo person, contrary to what many people would be thinking, because the majority of their agitators are from the Eastern part of Nigeria (Igbos) but instead the name came from an Ijaw man ( Ijaw is in Bayelsa state, the south-south part of Nigeria)
