With the unveiling of its own flag and coat of arms, the Middle Belt appears to have entered the fray following agitations from various groups in Nigeria seeking breakaway nations.
According to sources, the area has begun planning for its own country, dubbed the Midwest Republic.
The Middle-Belt also launched its own currency in 2016, which has since been revamped to include the Midwest.
It also unveiled its official flag and coat of arms, whose images have gone viral on social media.
Massive social media reactions have already begun trailing the proposed creation of The Midwest Republic.
