While Nigerians are busy preparing for their upcoming election, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are quite preoccupied with something else. On Saturday the 28th of January, IPOB opened a Biafran embassy at the Basque county in Victoria, Spain.
Nigeria has its own embassy in Spain where former beauty queen Bianca Ojukwu, the wife of late Biafran warlord, Odimegwu Ojukwu is the Ambassador.
Nigeria is in the process of voting in new governments. The election was scheduled to take place on February 14th but was postponed to March due to security concerns. Since the postponement, many are worried it might lead to a military coup, war, or divide the country.
There are also worries that the March election may not hold and that another postponement might take place. The international community has pleaded with the country to stick to the March date.
