Even with all that's happening, your disdain for Igbos has not abated. Can't you now see that the Igbos have been right about Nigeria all along as a contraption that cannot work?

With what is happening today regarding the unprovoked attacks by fulanis against other tribes you still think Igbos were the troublemakers?
Iegendhero:


This is what was written as the reason for the massacre by the OP:
The sin of the community against the military government of Yakubu Gowon, was the safe haven granted the Biafran soldiers who they termed as enemies.

Technically, they were sabo too and the Nigeria military dealt with them. Now using you analogy about sabo, why are you guys now crying over this thread since it’s a common occurrence throughout the war based on the analogy you gave about Biafrans doing the same?

At least Benin is still home to the Yorubas and they are back in their various houses in Yewa eating Amala and Ewedu.

Same cannot be said of the several people massacred by the Fulanis in Ebonyi recently. Last I heard, the dead don’t eat isi-ewu.

RIP to them tho, anyone killed by the terroristic Fulani herdsmen deserves a RIP.


The dead Yorubas of Yewa cannot eat Amala and ewedu also, and Ilorin now belongs to Fulanis. Deal with it

Every evidence is a lie except the Ibo man logic.

What even amaze me is how you are replying your
Same self? Ofoigbo and igboid are one and same.

I love these Ijaw guys, if they had not provide a video evidence, Ofoigbo might have said the people are Yorubas masquerading as SS minorities.

I will rather watch the videos of one of the leaders of the Ijaw nation in the person of Asari Dokubo, and what he has to say about Biafra.

That counters any arranged Ijaw tales of Biafra, Concocted by terrorist Fulanis and their Yoruba slaves

This is not a matter of disdain and we are not talking about Fulani Herdsmen killings on this thread.

This thread is a about the atrocities committed by the Nigerian military against the minorities in the civil war. I also echoed the fact that the Igbos also committed same against minorities.

I accept the fact that Nigeria military did but your kinsmen Ofoigbo failed to accept Biafran military wrongs against the minorities even with glaring pictorial and video evidence.

As per Fulani herdsmen and their attrocities, they are a menace to the society and I think each region is handling them in the way they think they can. That good that we are all in cohesion about dealing with them.

If a civil were to break out currently, I am 100% sure that the Yorubas won’t fight on the side of the North again. We won’t’!

I believe Igboid has already asked you to give details of the Biafran army units involved in these massacres. I brought out the point that the chief of defence staff will have to be held responsible for such massacres, if proven. But of course I know you will not be able to prove anything.

I have a video evidence of people relating their history with several people commenting and I also showed you scholarly evidence.

I would be a fool by wasting my time finding the name of Biafran army unit because if I do that you will still ask me to wake up the dead and ask them if it’s true they were massacred.

Of course. I don't know these citizens you're talking about.

Meanwhile Asari was a president of Ijaw Youths Council, and his aunt was killed by Nigerians for her pro-Biafra beliefs.
I am sure if his aunt had shown allegiance to Nigeria, they would have used her in one of these concocted videos to claim that Biafrans killed her family.

Nwokem you are already confusing yourself by thinking that Igboid and I, are the same.

I am an Nri-Igbo man, and I remember you and TAO claiming that EAST means WEST, when Benin chiefs told visiting Portuguese explorers about an Oghene in the east that authorised the crowning of Benin obas. A fact that was confirmed by Eze NRI Obalike who wasn't even aware of the Portuguese visit to Benin hundreds of years before.

You will have to provide the Biafran army unit s that took part in these massacres.

Isheagu people mentioned the Nigerian army unit, and their unit commander, followed by a list of those massacred.

You can't just make wild statements or consult concocted sites and recordings and wish that will fly with me, or any other intelligent Igboman.

I think showing video evidence of people talking about their history even going as far as declaring an open event for said occurrence is more better than wasting my time mentioning army units which you will obviously still deny.

All this nonsense appeal to pity don’t work on me. So stop saying I’m evil coz I don’t give a bleep about emotions here.

Are all those the Biafrans took from the ethnic minorities soldiers?

All is fair in war and there are even times which the USA have indulged in what they stylishly called collateral Damage.

When they nuked Hiroshima, do you mean they only killed military men? Do you know the civilian casualties in that strike? What about Vietnam?

In war several atrocities are made sometimes under duress and the most barbaric strategies are sometimes deployed based on the situation. I am not denying that Nigeria military committed crimes BUT you should not absolve the Biafrans of their crimes against minorities too.

If you can condemn Nigeria military then you are a hypocrite for absolving the Biafran military from blames under the pretext of eradicating Sabo. Rubbish!
Be careful of the decisions you make because karma will visit you one day.

Your picture is senseless.
Nigeria had their own propaganda too during the war, and part of it included such pictures you posted.
Most of those communities had to do and say whatever they are told to say to avoid similar thing like what happened to Isheagu happening to them, once their towns fell to federal troops.
I mean it's so worst that Igbo communities in Delta were denying their Igbo tag to avoid massacre.
Ikot Ekpene was under FG occupation when the picture you uploaded occurred, how do we verify the authenticity of the report?


My friend dad in his 60s said that his Elder brother was killed by Biafra soldiers in Midwestern region when they invaded. His only crime was that he was like a Hausa man. They shot him.

In 2007, an urhrobo man who had lived all his life in Benin told me that the Biafrans rounded up persons who they felt were of northern extraction and executed them all in Benin city.

You have to understand why many minority tribes werr angry at the Biafrans. They did things wrongly.

No such murder of Urhobo people happened in Bini City.
Those have always been stories you Urhobos and Edos made up to soothe your conscience in your involvement of massacre of Anioma people in Bini City and in their towns in Delta State when the FG arrived.
Your stories are usually vague. No name of victims and their village/town, no mention of Biafran unit or officer is ever mentioned.

It's always stories of *my father's friend*, my mother's uncle,my friend's wife.
They are usually kept as vague as possible.

I never disputed about the massacre. I am aware of the popular Asaba massacre. But you and your fellow igbo brother has denied any wrong doing by biafran troops in the Midwest.

I never talked about Biafra troops carrying out a massacre in the Midwest, but I made mention of them killing innocent unarmed civilians. I gave a report of a personal family friend and boom.... I was called a propagandist.

According to the work you posted. It says that Biafran troops committed atrocities in the Midwestern region even though it was not up to the scale of the federal troops in anioma land.

No such thing happened.
What he stands to gain from Making up stories of his elder brother being killed by Biafran soldiers, the same thing Germans who deny Jewish Holocaust and Turks who deny Armenian genocide want to gain.
They want to soothe their conscience and justify their own atrocities.

Omoigui who started the narrative of Biafran troops massacring non Igbo westerners had been tasked for years now to provide names of such victims, their home town, the Biafran unit and commanders involved.

That's a vague empty political statement.

But a genocide/ mass massacre of the people of Midwest?

It's a very interesting point of history.
You know part of the reason these Edoids were aggressive towards the Biafran troops passage through their territory on the March towards Lagos?
Because Ojukwu appointed an Anioma man as the governor of the region to replace their son Ejoor. They saw the Anioma appointment as Igbo appointment and plan of domination against them. The fact that Osadebey an Anioma and not a Bini man was the rightful leader of the region before Nzeogwu struck was easily muted by these lots.
So once the FG recaptured Midwest, they saw it as an ample opportunity to trim the Igbos of Midwest.

Yet today we are being told stories of how these same Igbos they massacred are supposedly Bini descendants.
