Bringing ‘Biafra’ Back In: Narrative, Identity, and the Politics of Non-Reconciliation in Nigeria

By Godwin Onuoha

Bringing ‘Biafra’ Back In: Narrative, Identity, and the Politics of Non-Reconciliation in Nigeria (2018) focuses on how contemporary neo-Biafran movements have appropriated and transformed the Biafran project into a basis for political action in their bid to resuscitate Igbo ambitions for self-determination and nationhood in the Nigerian state.
