Gideon Okeke: "F**k Biafra", Tinsel actor tells social media follower

Gideon Okeke: "F**k Biafra", Tinsel actor tells social media follower

Gideon Okeke

The Igbos and the supporters of Biafra recorded the highest number of casualty during the Nigerian Civil War.

Anambra state born actor, Gideon Okeke made obvious his lack of interest when it concerns support for Biafra in a blunt response to a social media follower.

The movie star though from the south-east appears not to share any sentiment in respect to the separatist agenda being nursed by most of his tribesmen.

An Instagram follower with the user ID, Nwotani appealed to the Tinsel star to back the Biafra cause when he wrote, "support Biafra bro if u can", but Okeke simply replied "F**k Biafra".

There have been serious tensions and a lot of activism from the eastern Nigeria occupants. They have looked to the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu who seems to have acquired the position of a demi-god among his kinsmen.

The Nigerian Civil War, also known as the Biafran War lasted between July 1967 to January 1970.

What motivated the separatist agitation during the period was the 1966 anti-Igbo pogrom which saw the mass killing of Igbos in the north.

 

It is 2017 and one wonders what the bone of contention is. Some Igbo loyalists have often complained of marginalization, a lack of opportunity in government by their kinsmen.

But just like actor Gideon Okeke, not a lot of easterners share the sentiments of the whole concept of Biafra. They would rather focus on improving their lives as one Nigeria.
