Stories about me supporting Biafra are false, says Chimamanda Adichie

Chimamanda Adichie, award-winning Nigerian author, says stories on the social media purporting that she is in support of the Biafran agitation are false.



    Adichie issued the disclaimer via a post on Facebook on Monday.

    She posted one of the headlines that read: ‘Enough of this Political Correctness, I am a Biafran and Nothing Else — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’

    “This headline below, and other similar headlines, which appeared on some websites: are false,” she wrote.

    “They are completely invented; along with some accompanying quotes which have been attributed to me. I did not say or write those words.”
