VIDEO: Biafra Currency Out In Enugu, Biafrans Begins "Practical" Use of Biafra Pounds

Members of the indigenous people of  Biafra in Trans-Ekulu  Enugu state carried out a practical trading using Biafra currencies.

Ebonyi Daily News learnt that 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.

Ebonyi Daily News gathered  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. Its back has the coat of arms of the republic with the inscription: “peace, unity and freedom.

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.

The video of the practical trading of the currency had since got the polity Divided with diverse opinion.
