Ogbonaikenna: why did you stop the northerners from attacking us from your region. They brought the war to your doorstep and you didn't talk.
What a dumb question? How are we suppose to achieve this feat when we can't even get rid of the blood-thirsty
northern troops stationed in our region, then? I know you guys inc. your arrogant and ambitious warlord expected us to revolt
and get slaughtered in the process only for ojukwu to step in and "rescue" us. Now. all can discern why you ibos call
us "cowards" and hate us much more than you hate the north who started the "genocide" on your sorry greedy a.rses.
When you ibos were collaborating with the abokis to have our leaders jailed, which one of you spoke in our defence? When you
ibos in conjunction with your aboki master (NPC) rigged election in our region which led to the loss of many yoruba lives,
which one of you "smart alecs" stood up for us?
Now that you ibos have fallen out with your former master, you want us to put our neck on the line for you. How smart!!!

And your ikemba- a man full of intestinal fortitude scampered in the middle of the night, dressed as a
ugly bearded damsel at the sight of the same "jittery-kneed" yoruba officer, known as Adekunle.
Old man, all these e-games is pointless jo but if you truly believe you and your ibo people are capable of winning a war with
the yorubas, phocking "put you money where your mouth is". At least, this time around, there will be no pretext. Just invade
yorubaland and see how far you will get before we wallop your obdurate flat-heads again.
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Logic Mind: 3:26pm On May 25, 2012|
I meant, yorobaland happened to be geographically, on the way to lagos.
For the rest I refer to this good contribution by dede1
What have you to say about Adekunle attacking us even before the move to Lagos?
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Dede1(m): 3:35pm On May 25, 2012|
There was nothing called Mid-west war during the civil war. Biafran troops attacked Nigerian territory which was named mid-western region. It is a mark of irredeemable irresponsibility for anybody to make a wild unsubstantiated allegation of atrocity against anybody. It is a shame on any fool who thinks it is right to vomit allegation without a string of truth that can stand the scrutiny of curious minds. Biafran forces were not bunch of unit-less marauders who pillaged countryside. They were regimented unit with insignia on the shoulders depicting battalion and brigade or even division. So it is blatant falsehood for anybody capable of directing foods to his or her mouth instead of the nose to spew crap of atrocity with stating the name of commander, battalion or brigade.

T9ksy:so it means that 1. you lack the guts to confront the northern troops even in your region. 2. How were you able to confront biafran troops since you don't have the military might?
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by T9ksy(m): 3:42pm On May 25, 2012|
And who be adekunle then? Adekunle then nor ever since has he been spokeman for the yorubas. Awo and his
advisers who were mandated by the yorubas to look after their affairs have spoken- we do not want war nor are we prepared for
war and at any rate, the war was between two former bedfellows. So wetin kocern us? go fight the north who were killing your
fathers/mothers ati bebelo like eran ileya and not turn my homeland into a theatre of war just because it happens to have the
seat of govt located within though everyone then knows that the actual power resides in sokoto.

|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Beaf: 3:46pm On May 25, 2012|
We are getting somewhere at last!
It is really strange that anybody would go about lying that Biafra was "betrayed" by territory which they attacked. Don't you think?
Believe the rest of your bedside stories, sir. But on the day anybody wakes up to tell lies about "betrayal" from the Midwest who were Biafra's unfortunate victims, I'll be right here to pop common sense and truth into their sordid minds and pop out their left eye with logical left hooks and intellectually wicked uppercuts.

After going through the bombardment and deadly venom that proceed from your minds I have the following to say:
LOGIC MIND AND DEDE1 > who will govern biafra? Is it not our present corrupt,selfish,devilish,self-centered morons who think only for themselves will govern us, if you think I'm lying look at our present states we craw like snails.
BEAF> If not I have known you as a mentally disabled person I would have called you a lunatic because you said alot of things but 90% of them make no sense at all.
BITTYEND,T9KSY,LEKKIE07> the three of you makes little sense but in a highly tribalized tone.
In general, Nigeria is a great nation what we lack is good leadership and that good leadership will be a reality if our corrupt leadership [ from the six geopolitical zones] are put where they belong life in prison and death sentance but the question still remains who will do it for us?
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Dede1(m): 3:52pm On May 25, 2012|
I tend to response to unbearable falsehoods and conjectural craps spewed by those who granted effort to defeat Biafra. Sometimes, it is aimed at Ndigbo and Biafrans who seemed to be oblivious to the chronicle order of events leading to Nigeria/Biafra civil war.
As you pointed out, the goons would want us to believe that Biafra initiated attack on Nigeria through Mid-west while deceitfully flaunting the idiotic idea of neutrality. Mid-western region was part of Nigeria which acted as supply house for men and material, training ground and launching pad against Biafra. Nigeria declared war on Biafra on July 6, 1967 and on July 26, 1967 3MCDO, which has trained and gathered men and material at Escravos in Mid western region attacked and captured Bonny (Ubani) in Biafra. Biafra did not respond to the attack by Nigeria from Mid-western region until August 8, 1967.

Ogbonaikenna: so it means that 1. you lack the guts to confront the northern troops even in your region. 2. How were you able to confront biafran troops since you don't have the military might?
Confront them with what? bows and arrows like you guys did? It's an open secret then that the yorubas were the least represented group in the armed forces, a consequence of the UPE in existence in the region at the time coupled with the fact that many of our top military officers had, either being killed in the first and subsequent coup whilst some were conveniently locked up in jails in or near the eastern region. I suppose that was what you guys had in mind for us, i.e rise up with bows and arrows against a murderous fully armed northern troops still baying for ibo blood. You guys must think we are fools!!!
As for your second question above, mass mobilisation, my dear. Mass mobilisation

To an obviuosly biased and bigoted mind like yours, of course my post will be construed as "twaddles" but
typical of your ilk, you have not come up with any superior argument or fact to debunk my "twaddles".
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Dede1(m): 4:35pm On May 25, 2012|
I really do not know where you pull this fallacious talk of “betrayal”. Betrayal exists if there were pre-agreed arrangement to act and suddenly one party backs away at last hour. In case of Nigeria/Biafra civil war, people were presented with an opportunity to choose side and many people did. However in choosing side, the people created a situation where we have mortal enemies within Nigeria.
I have decided to live with the fact there are people I consider enemy in the contest of Nigeria and there is no amount of name calling or attempts to sit history on its head will change such situation. We fought a war and tried very hard to annihilate each other. It will be very naïve to think history will not repeat itself and this time around there could be wiser actors than the previous war.
I have resolutely stated that in any event of disintegration of Nigeria, my preference is to have Republic of Igbo land. Seriously, I do not give a fig if the pending dissolution of Nigeria is hellishly bloody. I am not given to live the life of pretence and disintegrated Nigeria is all cherish for now.
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Beaf: 4:49pm On May 25, 2012|
You have ended up moving your position to a more forthright stance. That is very good.
The bolded is the most important part of your post (the rest is just bluster). Everyone had a choice where to belong, some went with the FG, others went with Biafra. The Midwest took no side; IMHO, Biafra took that to mean we were looking to cease the opportunity to strike for freedom (lilely so), invaded us; but instead of making good use of a natural situation (we had just stormed out of the Western Region, feeling cheated), spread tears and blood in a few short days. Perhaps the lines of command or were weak or planning was poor; whatever it was, a mistake of gargantuan proportions was the result.
Let history be a manual for the future.

@ Beaf, we are still waiting for the information on top officials in Midwest that were killed during the war. Either admit it was a complete falsehood and stop making such claim or you provide the list of those top officials or source. Still waiting ...
In a pattern of behavior that can only be described as self-destructive, the "liberation" force went molesting, Molesting, kidnapping, torturing, detaining and even killing local figures whose support they badly needed (14, 17). For example, Mr. J. O Adeola (Commissioner of Police), Mr. Olu Akpata (Permanent Secretary), Mr. Sam Umweni (of Radio Nigeria, Benin) and Mr. J Imoukhuede (Head of the civil service), were abducted from Benin and taken back to Biafra. They remained in prison (without trial) until the end of the war (17). In his memoirs, Ademoyega acknowledges: "The 18th battalion stationed in that port (Warri) was a ragged, ill-equipped and ill-controlled unit. Reports of their lawlessness in town had been scandalous." Such actions (among others) did not endear them to the people they came to liberate from "the north". Ademoyega summarized it thus: "Biafran entry into the Midwest was seen by the people, especially the non-Ibos of the State, as an act of foreign aggression."

Banjo was aware of the atrocities Biafra had left behing them. In fact his reason for stopping at Ore was because he feared that a revenge mission would hit him from Benin, since he had failed to capture Ejoor and Ogbemudia dead or alive (as he was commanded to).
You have to ask questions about why Ejoor had moved his troops out to Nsukka province at the time Biafra invaded and why the defense of the Midwest was left in the hands of Okwechime, Igboba, Nwajei, Nwawo and Ochei (all Igbo's). To the casual observer, it would seem that the Midwest deliberately left the door open. Only to be rewarded with a haunt for Ejoor and Ogbemudia (dead or alive), as well as the execution and kidnap of the Midwests top govt functionaries and civil servants in what was a poorly planned coup.

The man was simply petrified with what Biafra had left behind.
