Biafra, when it first came into being in 1967 was not an ethnic enclave, it was a multi ethnic entity whose geography comprised The entire eastern Nigeria.
The eastern region consultative assembly that advised Ojukwu to declare Biafra had persons from the various ethnic groups willingly playing key roles.
When Biafra was finally proclaimed, these persons from the various ethnic groups willingly played prominent roles also. The number two man in Biafra then was a non Igbo.
At the ressurrecton of the cause, these ethnic groups willingly opted to be part of It.
So,sir,I do not understand the basis for your exclusion prescription.
