You know, I hate it when people gather around and begin to use semantics to sell a box full of bricks as a wide screen tv.

Whats all these nonsense? Why should a propganda write up designed to excuse culpability for the coup be even cheered by people that say they are intelligent. . . .where's the intelligence when the story in front of you already contradicts itself three or four times in different paragraphs of its context?

How could Nzeogwu who has a primary attribute as a hardcore rebellion and suspected and kept at distance by Ojukwu then not rebelled against Biafra and cross into Federal side, if indeed he was genuinely against secession? Is it that he selectively rebels when it suits his purpose? What does his friendship with OBJ has to do with the reality of his atrocities? Somebody killed selective leaders outside of ethnic tribe and because he is friend with some people, then he must not be the monster he was painted to be. I dont get it!

Nzeogwu is a criminal and untill proven otherwise, I am steadfast on that convinction. This propaganda story is handicapped by its own counter positions and therefore not convincing enough to shift me.

Do you know how many of these military officers were close friends in their junior ranks but ambition and greed turned them against one another later in career? , Look at IBB and Mamman Vatsa. Who could ever believe that IBB will kill his close ally Vatsa?

Dont use that nonsensicasl Nzaogwu /OBJ/Bali paddy-paddy connection for redeeming a criminal.

Please, we all knew the coup was ill-conceived.
Nzeogwu did his part. So did the Yorubas and other brave South-Southerners.
The South-Easterners were the ones who could sold out.
Then wanted everyone to run to Biafra with them.

Foul!!!! kiss


Please, back to topic!
The Northerners killed Nzeogwu for his folly in trusting the "across the Niger cowardly Abijanrse"!!!
Ho-ha!!!! kiss

We have learned our lessons abi?
Never trust those who hide in Abijan!!!

Mu he he he he grin

The daughter of Brigadier-General Samuel Ademulegun, the then GOC Ist Division, Kaduna, has narrated how Nzeogwu made her and her siblings orphans during the ill-fated coup. Today, Mrs. Solape Ademulegun-Agbi, proprietress of Hillcroft Schools, may be a fully-grown woman. But the trauma of having both parents shot in her presence has left an indelible mark. Reacting to a story captioned, Return My Son’s Body, Nzeogwu’s Mother Begs Obasanjo, recently published in Saturday Sun, Ademulegun-Agbi said that Nzeogwu’s mother wanted her son to be treated as a hero, whereas he could actually pass as a villain.

But her sores were made the more painful when she recalls that Major Chukwuma Kaduna Nzeogwu was a welcome guest who always relished a meal of pounded yam any time he came calling at the Ademuleguns.
She spoke to Daily Sun. Excerpts:
General Ademulegun
My dad is everything you would love in a father. Very caring, hardworking and dedicated. He was in love with horse-riding and he made sure I owned one. I named my horse Santana. I used to ride Santana to school in those days, so when the Volkswagen Santana came into the market, it really brought back memories of those days. As a typical Ondo man, my dad was fond of eating pounded yam with the full complement of cow-leg. Generally, he was a wonderful father who more often than not, hoisted me on his broad shoulders. These are some of the memories that have kept me going all these years.
The 1966 coup
My parents, Brigadier-General Samuel and Hajia Latifat Ademulegun were killed during the 1966 coup. That particular experience was quite traumatic and I have never been able to overcome it. At a point, I had phobia for anything military. My dad was the then General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1st Division, Kaduna and his army number was N3 which makes him the third highest-ranking officer in the Nigerian Army. Major Nzeogwu was a welcome guest in my parents’ home. He will always come to our house for steaming hot meal of pounded yam. Being Ondo State indigenes, pounded yam was a regular meal in my mother’s kitchen. On the day of the coup, Nzeogwu came calling with some other soldiers in the wee hours of the day. I think they were about six soldiers. As an impressionable young girl of six, that was quite a number. There were guns everywhere. I remember vividly that I was down with chicken pox, so I had the opportunity of sleeping in my parents’ room. My immediate younger brother was also sleeping soundly in a cot in the same room. But when Nzeogwu came in, there was little talking. I even called him uncle, but he was the one that shot my mother in the chest. She didn’t die immediately, but she was rolling on the floor, gasping and bleeding. With the last ounce of her breath, she was calling “Kole, Kole” (my immediate elder brother whose room was nearby). But my brother never heard because he hid under his bed when the gunshots were booming. I don’t know who killed my dad because he was dragged out of the bedroom. The batman, who was in the boys quarters polishing my dad’s shoes, and our housemaid, one Gbelle, shepherded us out of the bedroom. These memories are ever so green in my heart. A child remembers bad things more than the good.
Life after the coup

Their children called him uncle! How worse can it get? Yet, you are all seating here, wooed by some semantics to fall in line with a stupid propaganda. fvckng bvllshyyt!! angry

I suggest you shut your putrid mouth for the good of your miserable life. As usual, you have written like a person without a brain cell. Both Brigadier Samuel Ademulegun and Major Nzeogwu knew military has no place for petty sentiment, olodo.

So, its safe to say you're liable to kill someone whom you eat in his house and whom his kids refer to you as uncle, just because you both knew the "consequences going-in".

Ok, cool, lets give you that. WHY KILL HIS WIFE THEN? AND WHY IN FRONT OF THE KIDS?

Oh well, I don't expect a reasonable answer from you. You already attested above that you're traitorous and would betray in a heartbeat. What a loser.

And I used to think Nzeogwu was a hero. . . . . .

I came around this page in the year 2016, quite insightful has it been to me about the person Nzeogwu. Further research and reading is the above Web pagefor others interested in more bits of historical information.

OBJ cried when Nzeogwu was killed and chastised the men that celebrated his death.

Kaduna was a Nationalist or better still a Pan African. I don't know what he'd be doing in the separatist army. Also, he was one of the first counter intelligence officers of the Nigerian Army so the official Nigerian Military burial given to his body by the then military government raises questions about which side he was working for. Also there's the fact that his body was mutilated while in the morgue in Nsukka.

Well, I believe the man was an ideal Nigerian and and selfless human being. I respect him a lot. With more people like him, I don't think this country would be in the mood it is today.

Nzeagwu was hired by the MI5.

The man was driven by blind nationalism not to see that he was considered a Kafur in his beloved north.

He was Ibo only by birth and more a northern than anything.

I believe he was used by the MI5 to usher in the central federal arrangement.

Nzeagwu as far as I am concerned shoud have an edifice in every state capital in northern Nigeria celebrating his contribution to ushering their parasitic existence in today's Nigeria .

You are a Devil incarnate.
Where is your sense of humanity?


Nzeogwu decieved his subordinates that they were doing EXERCISE DAMISA only to take them to Ahmadu Bello's Lodge and asked them to be killing people including women and a terrified Sergeant Oyegoke who didn't see the sense in these senseless killing and refused to cooperate was immediately shot by Nzeogwu with SMG to terrified others into submission.

You supported evil and when the same evil visited you and your people shortly thereafter, you were crying 'blue murder'.


Instead of you to be resmorseful for these murderous activities of Nzeogwu, you went tribal bashing.

What happened to Sergeant Oyegoke will befall you, very soon your wife and children will feel what Oyegoke's wife and children felt in Jan,1966.

Awusa peeps of course, he turned himself in after all the 'cowards' fled. cheesy

Crime is crime, Umu Ekwensu!

What Nzeogwu did was murder, NOT anything military.
Ademulegun and his wife weren't killed in any miitary battle.
Lets call a spade a spade and not an Agricultural implement, so no need of sugar coating it.

Hi Max, I have been an ardent fan of your captivating books - Oil, Politics and Violence, And the sequel - Soldiers of Fortune.
Having read other books to compare perspectives, i must commend you for the depth of analysis of the Nigerian Military and the veracity of your viewpoints.
These are some of the reasons am always excited whenever I hear you come up on one of the renowned radio stations in Abuja to give insights to political issues.
I highly recommend your books.
Kudos and more grace.

Is that the reason you haven't excelled on the job claim to have?
