U lack sense, IGBOS lost 2 million
Fighting, 5 different countries.
But The entire Yoruba generation would hav been wiped out if it were them.

I hope u have sense now.?
It shall not be well with that fool that removed history from Nigeria.. It made y'all so dumb and uniformed.
So u ar d one to inform the Yoruba's, when did education starts in Igbo land?
Wallow in ur foolishness, so Yoruba's don't have soldiers, is it not this same Yoruba's that lead ur Biafra war? If not for Yoruba's u would have eaten urselves raw in Cameroon.

The problem that has always existed is that so many mumu united folks will believe all these lies. The same way Ojukwu used World Council of Churches to talk about one hidden islamic Agenda to get support for the war. So, losing the war, Ojukwu running away, Now Nnamdi Kanu running away, the fact that all the lies, lies and continuous lies has not helped you to gain leadership position in Nigeria will still not make you stop. Why are there a people addicted to telling lies, peddling lies and forever trying to benefit from lies? It has not worked but they will never stop lying. I'm sure Ojukwu would've cried that Gowon was not even Muslim, for the propaganda to work. We had a thriving honest democracy, some disgruntled evil men truncated our democracy, killed our leaders and introduced the Military into our democracy because of pure hate and the same old satanic attitude of "I am better than him". Why should i bow to Adam, i am better than him, the same mindset led them to kill Northerners and they tried to cover it up. It led to a civil war, they lied that Chukwu Okike Abiama has already given them victory. They lost the war and forever keeps blaming it on the North, Islam, Jihadist, Yorubas, South-South people, Oyinbo people, anyone and everyone is responsible etc. Keep the lies coming, Ojukwu died a runaway coward that got pardoned, Kanu is in hiding talking trash and left his fellows in jail......still no sense till date. What is evident is this, the truth will forever triumph over lies, period.
Igbo's are known for lies, go to their shop to buy things u will blame urself, selling fake things, they don't respect humanity. And if not for Yoruba they would still be in stone age. Village ppl.

Ibo coup that drove ibos and Nigeria backward and u are here celebrating him. What do u have to say about Adekunle Fajuyi that said they should killed him with General Aguiyi Ironsi. Was Adekunle Fajuyi an ibo man? Bleep these ibo people on nairaland. All of them sleep and put their heads on same angle.

Was Nwobosi not the one that murdered Premier Akintola and his Nephew ? Did he apologise for the bloodshed?

He acted in self defence. Akin tola opened fire and the Colonel had to defend himself. Fans Kayode did not open fire and lived to tell.

No , Akintola was shot dead after he had surrendered. His son confirmed it. The man should make peace with the Akintola family.
By 1970 he alone of all the officers who had murdered people on the night of January 15 1966 Coup was alive and it may be that God showed mercy to him because of a pregnant woman in labour by the roadside that he halted his convoy to take to Hospital that night. Ademoyega and Chukwuka were part of the Coup but didn’t kill anyone, Chukwuka even tried to save his boss Lt col Pams life But Anuforo insisted on shooting him dead. The Jihad story is not true because Gen Ironsi who was the head of the Army and Ademulegan who was the head of all troops in the North and Louis Edet who was the inspector General of Police and Akinwale Wey who was head of the Navy were all Christians.

Arrant nonsense. Akintola committed suicide. He tried to engage the troops carrying assault rifles with Yari.ba made den gun.

Not true. FFK's father was there live. He was first arrested by Nwobosi then taken to Akintola residence so that Akintola could join him. Akintola chose to open fire instead.

FFK's father would later survive the ordeal without a scratch

You have head for good history. Yari.ba peeps will always try to turn fact on its head. Yes, RFK was not killed.

When invaders come to your house, You have a right to stand your ground and shoot them

Anyway, Akintolas death was fully avenged by his townsman Benjamin Babamaja Adekunle who wasted 3million Ibos and made them fatherless

So Ibos are now looking for parents love from Atiku like below

Hmm...

First, respect to Papa....did not know he was still alive. Sad that many of those who played key parts in the 1960-66 events are leaving us one by one.

Second...despite his explanation, the coup was still, in my opinion....unnnecessary. Sure it ended the violence in the South West....but it led to

1.The disaster that was the July 66 coup.

2.The May and October 66 pogroms and the reprisals in December 66.

3.The brutal civil war which left millions dead...and millions injured.

4.More importantly, we ended up truncating prematurely our democratic experiment, we got 40 years of Army rule...and we lost an opportunity to develop a mature democratic system.

In my opinion, Papa AND his colleagues should have resigned from the Army and gone into politics. Let the politicians make their mistakes.

Still....let's say there was no coup. South West might have disintegrated into mass civil war....and history might be looking much different.

Going into politics then means joining the bandwagon of riggers, murderers, looters and jihadists. It was more pragmatic to stop them, never mind that the attempt failed and the hunters became the hunted.
It wouldn't have happened in today's Nigeria, thanks to enlightenment, education, GSM and inter tribal marriages since end of the war.

ehemwhy:
My brothers from the East should twist history here o!
Junior officers of mainly south eastern origin planned a coup.
They almost wiped out all the leaders of northern and south western zones ....Ifeajuana snitched on Azikwe to leave the country ...no south eastern leader was killed including Okotie Eboh who was as minister of finance was an embodiment of corruption.

An IBO officer was a direct beneficiary of that coup ...Aguyi Ironsi

World wide the direct consequence of a coup or mutiny is death...Ironsi did not kill them ...he simply locked them up in the east ....he took no definate action for almost 6 months

If you were an hausa officer how would you feel ?

We all know what happened afterwards .... Ojukwu led the IBO nation into an unnecessary war that he was not prepared for .and set the Ibo nation centuries backward

All the surviving perpetrators of both the January and July 1966 coups need to come together and tender their apologies to us .
are u ignorant okotie eboh was killed and he was a mid western not from east... d coup was perceived an igbo coup which it wasn't? cos sm of d officers didn't follow thru like nzeogwu had wanted....it was bad if dat coup had nt happen probably things will be different politicians would have made mistakes and learn of course Bt it happen and ironsi compounded d wahala with degree 34 even after severe warning from ojukwu on d consequences mind u ojukwu was a great advocate of Nigeria's unity until d counter coup and d pogrom which followed...let's say facts as de are... any can go on you tube and watch real story of Nigeria by jide...u get a true picture of how d ist coup damage things...if only de allow democracy fetter...

But according to u guys then, u accused the prime minister and the sardauna of corruption and misappropriation of the public funds. If it was an in go coup, Ojukwu would have given nzeogwu the 5th battalion when nzeogwu sent Ojukwu a message ordering him to shoot all the politicians upon their arrival in kano an pretending to be "SUNRAY" which was the codename for the GOC 1 div in kaduna den. Again do u know there was jubilation in some parts of the north when sardauna and tafawa balewa were killed? GO and read "Emeka" by Fredrick Forsyth.

Story by the moonlight. The entire Nigerian army did not make up Division. Nigeria had two brigades or regiments which were not up to a brigade strength.

Nwafor Orizu the then Senate President of Nigeria had no power, had no visible contribution to the corruption happening among the first republic politicians.

And mind you, their plan was to kill the Prime Minister Tafawa Belewa, Ahmadu Bello the Northern Emir who was leading Tafawa Belewa on towards an Islamic agenda, and then President Azikiwe who always danced to northern politicians tune.

They planned to arrest others until Awolowo is installed as Prime Minister, but you know the man that has gun + alcohol + narcotics can go nuts cos they were under the influence of alcohol too according to my uncle.

My late uncle that participated in the coup said they only planned to kill 3 major politicians, namely:

1.) Tafawa Belewa
2.) Nnamdi Azikiwe
3.) Ahmadu Bello

Then arrest:

4.) Akintola
5.) Tam West
6.) The man from Edo. Forgotten his name.

He said some of them weren't happy with the way some of their fellow coupist handled the coup execution in their assigned region.

My uncle also told us that the political tuzzle between Awolowo and Akintola also played a key role in their decision for the coup because that Northern politicians wanted to use that opportunity of political turmoil between Awolowo faction and Akintola faction to invade Southwestern Nigeria and suppress the fast rising influence of Awolowo, a devout Christian, whole they liked and believed would make a better leader for Nigeria.

The northern politicians and traditional rulers liked Nnamdi Azikiwe because he played to their request always and remained ceremonious as he was more concerned with being a national leader respected all over Nigeria than fighting for the good of his people unlike other first republic politicians then.
Your late uncle was a delusional liar

What do you think will happen when Igbos are denied power in 2023 and Yorubas ascend the throne.?

Kanu is bidding his time carefully and Nigerians are falling into his trap.



The truth is that the bad blood is too much.
The present political era has really fuelled it.
Did Obasanjo not rule for 8 years? Did anything happen



My own advice is bitter ethnic politics being played recently does nobody any good.
Uniting everybody to have one mind should have been the focus. But those in authority presently has terribly worsened the whole issue.
Nigeria has not been divided like this.
It is pathetic

Well, if this is the whole truth, we have to be on the guide in Nigeria - sleep with one eye open. But I have some questions. I like to be objective. You people wanted to save Yorubas and the Middle belters, but aren't there officers from these areas then who should feel scandalized enough to act with you? Why was it a near Ibo revolt?

Becos coup is serious business with serious consequences. What matters most is for it not to leak. You do it most successfully with those you trust most, if possible (for that reason alone) with your wife and children!

The evil old man should just shut up; if they had not intervened and disrupted our nascent democracy, Nigeria would have been a better place today.

What corruption, when their main targets; the Sardauna and the prime minister hardly had any assets: mere modest houses/farms each and almost empty bank accounts?

What nepotism, when most of the appointed positions made by the prime minister Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa (including all the service chiefs) were filled by Igbos?

What Jihad? How could the Sardauna have waged jihad on the whole country when he as the premier of northern region had had control and influence over only ONE out of the FOUR existing regions at the at time?

Blatant lies and excuses for their evil deeds

Their motivation for the coup was clearly tribal and regional hatred fuelled by individual and collective bloated egos - they just couldn't stand the fact that those they were looking on as inferiors were in charge.

If the plotters were truly patriotic and their mission was to rid the country of all the evils they claimed; then why didn't they come up with any vision or blue print plan to address the said problems when they took over, beyond their short sighted goal of the lopsided killings of mostly northern leaders?

No matter how much they try to twist the truth or re-write history; they cannot remove the facts that: the coup was an Igbo coup; planned and executed by mainly Igbos; which targeted only non-Igbos; Igbos stood to benefit and indeed benefited most from it.

In order to consolidate power to themselves; they interrupted our nascent democracy; dismantled the regional system of government and replaced it with unitary system we have inherited today - which had since been the bane of this country; yet they are the ones at the forefront of those calling for restructuring while blaming northerners for the very problem they caused themselves.

I have less to say about dis ur fallacy.
Nigeria wouldn't have been better even if they failed to carry out d coup. Nigeria would have been hell for southern Nig if they had not carry out dat coup.

No mind these duplicitous souls, ojare

The mere fact that Maj. Donatous Okafor was among the ring leaders of the coup put paid to their lies. The same Okafor was found guilty by the Army Legal Officer, Chief Arthur Worrey of stealing his subordinates’ funds. The Federal Guards held a monthly raffle draw and social nights (Wassa). The proceeds from ticket sales and lucky dips were recorded in Army Book 64 and saved in the PRI (President of Regimental Institute) account. For months, false figures were recorded as Okafor was[b] stealing [/b] this money and giving a fraction as hush money to the treasurer Corporal Magaji Birnin Kebbi, a NCO in his fifties. It was actually Brig. Maimalari who saved Okafor's ar$e else he would have been booted out of service. Yet Okafor was tasked with the job of taking out the brigadier for corruption shocked


What about the ibo parliamentary leader and Minister of Trade Dr Ozumba Madiwe?







However , we all are expected to swallow the BS that only non-ibos are corrupt and need to be terminated.

I guess you were in the Afonja's army not to realize that stealing is a serious offence in the armed forces. I wonder why Okafor was not court- martialed if he had been found guilty of stealing regimental fund. Please be prudent when putting out stuffs for public consumption.
