Look at maps drawn by cartographers in the 15th Century. Meaning of “Biafra” and location. Little is known about the literal meaning of the word Biafra. The word Biafra most likely derives from the subgroup Biafar or Biafada of the Tenda ethnic group who reside primarily in Guinea-Bissau. Manuel Álvares (1526–1583), a Portuguese Jesuit educator, in his work “Ethiopia Minor and a geographical account of the Province of Sierra Leone”, writes about the “Biafar heathen” in chapter 13 of the same book. The word Biafar thus appears to have been a common word in the Portuguese language back in the 16th century. There was nothing like biafra kingdom. All the unit were independent states reporting to no one. Efik, Ibibio, Ogoni, Ibani (Opobo and Bonny), Kalabari kingdoms
