Why Obasanjo has no time for new Biafra movement miscreants

Philip Effiong and Obasanjo at the end of civil war

It's incredible that in this day and age 45 years after the Biafra war ended,some people are still toying with the idea of another war.They obviously don't know such a terrible thing war can be.I remember growing up in Lagos in the 70s and seeing all those ex Biafran war soldier with some of their limbs missing going from door to door begging for money.I didn't know who they were til my uncle told me.These were the casualties of an unnecessary war.How about thousands of children who lost their parents?Brothers,sisters,family
