Biafrans launch Biafrexit referendum to leave Nigeria, after success of Brexit

Following today’s global shocker, the Bretix vote, a new referendum campaign, Biafrexit, has been launched that could, potentially, also shock the world.

A referendum known as Bretix was held on Thursday, June 23, 2016, culminating in the decision by Britons to quit the European Union.

Perhaps, inspired by this turn of events, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Friday, June 24, 2016 afternoon announced the official launch of a campaign slogan, Biafrexit Vote, for a referendum on independence for Biafra.

An IPOB spokesperson, Clifford Iroanya said in an e-mail to The Trent, “The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu hereby officially launch the campaign slogan titled: BIAFREXIT VOTE.”

Iroanya also shared the campaign’s logo (below) said an official statement on the new referendum campaign would soon follow.

Biafra is a short lived republic carved out of the old Eastern Nigeria region in 1967. Its declaration of independence sparked a civil war in Nigeria and was reclaimed back into Nigeria when the Biafran forces surrendered to the Nigerian government in 1969. The secession was led by the late Emeka Ojukwu, a colonel in the Nigerian Army and administrator of the Eastern Region at the time he declared independence from Nigeria.
