World renowned novelist, Chimamanda Adichie, has debunked news reports indicating she claimed Biafra, and has said she never referred to herself as a Biafran.
The award winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun took to her Facebook page to rectify reports from blogs which had falsely attributed the Biafra nationhood claim to her person.
She posted on Facebook:
This headline below, and other similar headlines, which appeared on some websites: are false. They are completely invented; along with some accompanying quotes which have been attributed to me. I did not say or write those words.
