According to reports about the ongoing census in USA, it is said that Igbo people are currently being registered as Biafrans in the ongoing census being conducted by the United States Bureau.
Earlier, the United States Census Bureau urged citizens to gracefully give out their data, assuring them it would be kept confidential and only used to produce statistics.
An Igbo woman, Josephine Erewa who was part of the census took to her facebook page to express her joy of being registered as a Biafran instead of a Nigerian.
According to her, the officials did not argue with her when she told them she was a Biafran. Instead, they made the box for Biafran available and they ticked it.
She therefore encouraged other Biafrans to do the same by giving out their original identity. She then commended the leader of the IPOB , Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for his consistent agitation which has made it possible for Biafrans to be recognized abroad.
