Schools in the South East have been asked by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to include in their syllabus the teaching of the history of Biafra.
The schools were implored to procure geography textbooks that clearly show the Bight of Benin.
This was disclosed in a press release by IPOB publicity secretary, Emma Powerful.
He said schools that comply with the request would be given enough funds for research that would aid their teaching.
Calling on indigenes of Biafraland, the group, in the press release, said: “Schools that sign up to this scheme will receive grant to assist them from the scholars and IPOB worldwide.
“IPOB under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is working with publishers of history and geography textbooks to commence the job to enhance effective work and to ensure the success of the scheme.
“History teaching in Biafraland will focus on the genocide committed against the people of Biafra during the civil war in 1967 and 1970 while the geography teaching will mostly focus on the removal of the Bight of Biafra by British and Nigerian Governments.
“The history also will teach on the child starvation as weapon of war against Biafrans and the seizure of money and €20 given to Ndigbo after the war in 1970.”
