A Nigerian man, Dike BarukShalom Chukwudi has taken to Facebook to share a photo of his dad who was a Biafra warlord and gun he used in fighting 47 years ago during the war.
According to the story his dad told him, they hid most of the materials they used in fighting from soldiers in the middle of the night.
This gun was excavated from my yard. It was used by my dad during the Biafra war. Before the fall of Mbaise in 1971, he trekked from delta state to his home town. In fear of Nigerian soldiers who move from house to house in search of Biafra materials and weapons and to kill or amputate any Biafra soldier found. He buried his gun, and other materials in the middle of the night. After the fall of Mbaise he fled . when he came back he was unable to know were he buried his materials because of environmental change. But during building excavation, today being 14/1/2018, after 47years of burial, the gun of a biafran gorilla warrior resurfaced and he felt once more like a gallant soldier. After awhile, he shade tears and told the old stories which we will tell our children.
