oduasolja: I HOPE THE BIAFRANS are ready to pay for the war crimes they committed against minorities of the eastern region and midwest.Do you really know what is war crime? Watch Sri Lanka: The killing field on youtube.com to get an idea of what war crime really is.
oduasolja: minorities of the east were Molested and killed by biafran forces and their villages burnt down.
We will be most happy if you can share with other NLer any concrete evidence backing your assertion.
oduasolja: Ojukwu the power hungry tyrant forcefully appropriated their lands for his biafra republic and did not hesitate to slaughter them .Let me remind you that they are part of the former eastern region. The Eastern region of Nigeria seceeded from the union and that includes the minorities. In contrast, Gowon forcefully appropriated Yorubaland. Do you know that Awolowo sent a delegation to Gowon pleading with him to withdraw his forces and leave Yoruba territory for good? What did he do? He ordered Murtala and his band of depraved troops withdrew back and station their forces at Ilorin(which they consider northern territory). So my dear, it is Gowon that forcefully appropriated Yorubaland and occupied it with his troops against the wishes of the locals.
oduasolja: thats why many of them fought for nigeria.It is on record that the minorities started to enlist into the Nigerian army en-masse after Gowon issued a decree authorizin the creation of 12 states. This is a master stroke that warmed the minorities in former eastern Nigeria to the country. In essence, minorities fought with the hope that Nigeria will better serve their interest than Biafra. It left for you to decide if their expectations were met.

well the question is why did they feel Nigeria would better serve their interest. is it not as a result of the punishment they went under the igbos??

The minorities in the former Eastern region wanted their own state. But some elites from my tribe were solidly against such move. Instead of compromizin on this simple demand. This made them to view Igbos as a force that wz intent on corralin and dominating them. Coupled with the fact that Igbos engages in aggressive competition up to the extent that the minorities within us were overwhelmed. This turned into anger and with time their anger turned into hate. This created a fertile ground for them to believe every propaganda peddled by the Northerners. While the Northerners are worse than Igbos. Your assertion above is completely inaccurate
