Atleast, diya did not suyanize his people like your supposed hero did. The worst thing is that he ran away after smoking your ancestors, came back to beg for amnesty, still lost woefully in election. Wait, did you even asked your father why he refused to vote for your supposed hero?
But Gowon ran away after suyanizing 6,000 Nigerian soldiers at Abagana https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abagana_Ambush

Then he came back from exile and was forming born again pastor, and you fell for the ookie doke grin grin

Going by this logic, all biafran soldiers who died in the civil war were all foolish as they could all have run away before the arrival of the federal forces. In fact, there would have been no war as they could have all run away before the first shots were fired!!

What you are saying above is not the same thing. There is a difference between imminent defeat and capture and retreat. During a battle or war, if a Soldier dicorvers that the situation cannot be helped any more, the Soldier has a duty to escape since the Soldier staying back to die is only to benefit of his enemy.

Ojukwu had fought for 3 years and could no longer hold out. If Ojukwu had stayed back to surrender, he would have either been shot or put on trial for high treason and shot by firing squad. Either way, he was a dead man. So it makes no sense for Ojukwu to stay back to be killed for the benefit of Gowon.

He did the smart thing and left, handing over to Effiong who would conduct the surrender.

Only a foolish soldier will stay back to die in a hopeless situation when he has a way to escape.

Only the most dishonorable commander in chief of the army would abandon his troops in battle and escape to save his own life. It is cowardly and dishonorable, that is just the way it is.

And of what use would he have been to his troops dead?

Are you saying all the Igbo soldiers that died during the war are foolish and stupid for getting captured and killed? You are saying those soldeirs should have run away too ?
The Biafrans soldiers could have escape from the war field but they gallantly fought and die for the Biafra cause as martyrs, but when it was the turn of the useless coward Ojukwu to show that he too can fight, he ran away like the coward he is.
A brave man practice what he preaches, but Ojukwu pushed some gullible young Igbos to death, a fate that he could not take himself.

No thats not what Im saying. Biafran soldiers fought bravely but nobody would expect a Biafran soldier to stay back and die in a hopeless situation when there is a way to escape. However, in the end when the center could not hold, Ojukwu left which paved the way for Effiong to announce surrender. There would have been no point for Ojukwu to stay back and die when the end was already in sight. That would have been foolish of Ojukwu.

Only Gowon would have benefited with Ojukwu's death

We are saying the same thing, other Biafran soldiers including Effiong too should have bolted away when confronted with uncertainty.
All you are saying is that Effiong was foolish not to have bolted away as the second in command since whatever fate that awaits Ojukwu awaits him too
Please don’t let Effiong people think that Ojukwu put their own in danger so that he could escape
Ojukwu was a coward ..simple

If you believe all these, why then are you and your kin so quick to label others cowards for not being foolhardy about things?

Why did ojukwu start a war he was going to run away from despite advice from all quarters?

No you dont understand. Ojukwu was the embodiment of Biafra, he was the one they really wanted to get their hands on. Effiong was no 2 man and was not a significant catch. The big fish was Ojukwu, Effiong was never in harms way.

A people who fought the military might of Nigeria, Britain and Russia for 3 years? No other tribe can do it in Nigeria, maybe Ijaws.

The brave ones are those who can stand fight for their freedom, wether win or lose. The real cowards are those who say 'one Nigeria' and submit to Hausa/Fulani slavery because they have no fight in them

One minute you praise those who fight to the death. Another minute you praise ojukwu who ran away. Make up your mind my dear keyboard warrior. Must I stupidly waste 3million souls like ojukwu then run away before you know I have a fight in me? cheesy

@ the bold, cowards like Ohaneze ndi Igbo. Cowards like ojukwu who submitted to that slavery and contested 3 times and lost in the same slavery cheesy

Cowards like all the SE governors and ekweremmadu who proscribed ipob under threats from buhari. Cowards like all the ipob who swam isiala ngwa muddy pool under Hausa koboko and are now afraid to even fly any Biafra flag again cheesy

Indeed cowards like the northern Igbo who created a new tribe just to be eligible to keep staying with the Fulani killers up north cheesy
