– A Nigerian lady has stirred reactions on Twitter for posting about the Biafran notes she discovered in her father’s home
– Tweeps said that despite the fact that the money is no longer in use, she should keep them as they could be worth more as an artefact
– People were wowed as some also shared similar experiences of finding very old notes in their grandparents’ house
A Nigerian lady identified as Chioma has shared photos of the old Biafra currencies she found in her father’s room.
Sharing the notes, the lady attached snaps of both notes and cleaned coins used during the nation’s civil war.
Many people have since reacted to the tweet as tweeps went down memory lane. Some even said their parents who witnessed the war also had their currencies.
