An unexpected discovery was recently made by some construction workers in the eastern part of Nigeria. The workers were digging round an old village house before discovering stash of Biafran pounds hidden inside a bottle buried in the ground.
The Biafran pound was the currency of the breakaway Republic of Biafra between 1968 and 1970 during the civil war.
The labourers and other villagers were shocked at the sight of the money as they wondered what might have made the “wealthy” owner bury the cash.
This is coming after a Nigerian entertainer based in America, Chinomso Prince Egbuchere and his family discovered a huge sum of Biafran pounds their grandfather hid in the ceiling during the Biafran war.
The grandfather died over thirty years ago and reportedly hid the money along with other items in the ceiling.
