Go get yourself some education. Do you think I'd make that up? You can simply ask for the source of the info, but the cage of ignorance will not avail you any intellectual inquisitiveness.

BELIEVE THIS POST AT YOUR own perry
And why should an accurate and factual report bring about peril, other than the fact that you've diluted your learning with ethnic bigotry?

Some ladies saw huge Biafran notes sometimes ago...The notes have quality!

The watermarks in those notes are old and the standard is obsolete. If you get one with current standard its a fake.

Anyone with old biafran notes should contact me. I will buy them.

Heromaniaa:
The currency spent in the defunct Republic of Biafra during the Nigerian civil war (1967-70), Biafran Pound, has surreptitiously crept into the currency market, serving as the legal tender in some communities along the West African coast.

Investigations carried out by Sunday Punch showed that the money is being spent in the border town between Togo and Republic of Benin, while some currency hawkers also exchange it for the naira and other currencies in the border town between Ghana and Togo.

One Biafran pound still bears the signature of Dr. Syvelster Ugo, the then Governor of the Central Bank of the defunct Biafran Republic and the picture of a palm tree. What is, however, baffling about the currency is that it has more value than the Nigerian naira and it is openly accepted as a legal tender in the affected communities.

When Sunday Punch visited the Ghana and Togo border town, known as Aflo, some of the money vendors were eager to sell the currency. They, however, insisted on selling one Biafran pound at N800. The scenario at the Togo/Benin Republic border, known as Helakondi, was different as the vendors willingly sold one pound for between N200 and N270 to our correspondent. Some food vendors in Togo were telling passersby that they were willing to accept Biafran pounds.

In Ghana, the vendors were discreet about the trade. One of them, who identified himself simply as Tony, told our correspondent that the money was not accepted as a legal tender in Ghana, but that Ghana was a transit route for the currency.

He said: \"We get the money from some Igbo people in Nigeria. They bring it here for us and we cherish it so much.

Good for her and can actually keep it as bonus from the aftermath of civil war that was fought before her existence.

Thank you

The only thing they are good for is making mouth claiming other people’s state as their state

Cowards like them all


If you want Biafra let your kanu come down to Nigeria and start the rallies together


By the time army killed 3 millions of you all

Cowards set of lunatics

Biafra will never become a reality. Igbos are not capable of managing themselves. Biafra land will break all the records of Sodom and Gomora. Drug trafficking, prostitution, 419, money rituals, raping, kidnapping, etc are their stock in trade.
Bros with all the ills quoted against the Biafrans, I think you should rather be happy that at last these evil ones will stop sharing political space with you; but rather because the emotions of fear and hatred are illogical in their very nature, just like any other emotion,you have shown your very low self in the open. It pains you so much that Biafra is about to become a reality. Just bury your hatred and stupidity because they are of no use to Biafrans. You are not yet intellectually schooled,you need more effort brother. Cheers

Again you miss the point. My mentioning you has nothing to do with your wrong spelling. I merely expressed my displeasure with you for saying that people should believe a genuine article at their own peril. Your suggestion, I am convinced, arises from deep-seated ignorance and shallow-mindedness. I only quote fools once. I'm quoting you twice now, you must be the King of them all
Re: Lady Finds Biafran Currency In Her Father's Cupboard by Damibiz(m): 6:54pm On Aug 14
The effort you put towards typing this trash could have being geared towardz actualising your biafran dream..please stop wasting your precious strength,use it for something good..and for the record,being king of fools is better than being king of a death course..thank u

Now you reveal yourself for what you truly are. An irredeemable ethnic jingoist. I'm glad you mentioned Biafra, the sum of all your nightmares. for the records my initial post about biafra currency being used in some parts of west Africa has nothing to do with any ethnic leaning. It was simply information I found and decided to distribute but you were quick to misread that information because of your deep-seated ignorance and dislike for the Biafran cause, which I neither support nor empathize with.
Re: Lady Finds Biafran Currency In Her Father's Cupboard by Damibiz(m): 10:15pm On Aug 14
