The United States government reportedly registering Biafrans in their database as an ethnic entity in an ongoing headcount.
The US Census Bureau has earlier announced to conduct 2020 count, urged everyone to respond to the census officials as their answers will be kept anonymous and “they are used only to produce statistics”.
One of the residents who has participated in the ongoing exercise, Joséphine Erewa, took to her Facebook to express joy that she was registered as a Biafran instead of Nigerian.
She revealed that the officials surprised her as they did not ask further questions when she told “Biafran”, Said the box for Biafrans was made available and was rightly ticked.
She encouraged other respondents from Africa, including Nigerians to remember to give their ethnic originality in the exercise.
