Biafra: Go and Develop South-East First – Charly Boy Tells Agitators

Former PMAN President, Charly Boy has said the agitation for Biafra was a foolish venture and ask thoe clamouring for it to go back and develop the South-east region.

The self-styled ‘Area Father’ said this in an interview with Vanguard newspaper.

He said: “Now people are shouting Biafra but I say they don’t know what they are talking about. Experience is the best teacher and those of us that experienced Biafran war first hand know this is a foolish venture.


"During the war, my village was like the war theatre and I saw people dying per second all around me. There was death everywhere. If you have been seeing gory pictures of Syria, how death visits from everywhere, it was the exact way Biafra was during the war. Believe me, bullets didn’t even kill us as much as hunger. You can imagine, you and your friends would be playing and all of a sudden there would be air raid. As you were running helter-skelter to take cover you would see some people’s heads being blown off their bodies. Such sights have never left me. I was about 17 years old then and now somebody is shouting ‘Biafra’. No.”

Charly Boy asked those clamouring for Biafra to first go back to the South-East and develop the region.

He added: “Biafra is a thing of the mind. Is it in this hunger you expect people to fight? How do you want to do that?”
