That is plain fake news.

The people of Isheagu were confused by Ojukwu in his numerous propaganda mechanism by lying that the Nigeria military killed them when in fact Ojukwu was the one that masterminded their death through the backdoor to pin it on the Nigerian army.

I will only accept responsibility if we can wake each of the victims and ask them to confirm if truly the people that shot them were Nigerian military.

Forget about the plaque and etc, anybody can attach the name of anyone to a piece of brick and say they were casualties of his enemies.

So until then, they should go and get their apology from Ojukwu.

Am I clear bro?

I was carefully following your argument with Igboid and Ofoigbo, and even though they were giving you facts and you equally tried to use logic in responding them. However, at this point, I must say that they have completely won the argument!

Propaganda can work for some time but facts will ultimately triumph over it. What's the nonsense you wrote above? They presented names of victims, the town where the massacre took place and even provided names of the Nigerian soldiers that committed the attrocities!

Now, after you failed woefully to provide evidence to prove that Biafrans committed such attrocities against minorities you now want to deny that Nigerian troops committed mass murders in Anioma land. It goes to show how dishonest you are, as well as how desperate you want to make it appear like both sides committed such evil so we should stop blaming Nigeria alone.

FYI, the war took place between 1967 to 1970, just one generation away! It's not like it happened in 1867 and nothing can be traced again. Every one of those names the Isheagu community wrote in that memorial tomb has brothers, sisters or children who are still alive today! A simple visit to the community will reveal the families they came from! So, since you claim that Biafra equally massacred minorities, can you kindly provide the evidence same way Igboid provided his?

WikiLeaks have shown files and memos of how the British government helped Nigeria with propaganda. So, showing clips of a man purpoted to be narrating to a couple of white men how his house was destroyed by Biafran troops doesn't prove anything, especially when this happened when Nigerian troops had seized control of the town. Before the Nigerian took over, weren't they shelling and bombing the town? Couldn't those rubbles be as a result of that?

At your age, education, exposure you still suffer from debilitating ahistorism. Imagine the state of younger Yorubas who don't have the level of education and exposure.

"Propaganda can only last for a while, you can’t win a war based on propaganda because reality is different from fantasies"


Q#1
Why did Yoruba fight the Nigeria-Biafra War?
Q#2
Why did Awolowo and Yorubas align with the North to fight against Biafra?
Q#3
Did Yoruba and Hausa/Fulani fight in the Nigeria-Biafra War for the same political reasons. If "YES", what was the political reason behind their alliance to fight Biafra's independence?
Q#4
BETWEEN THE HAUSA/FULANI AND YORUBA, WHO is the real winner or real loser of the Nigeria-Biafra War?
Q#5
Between the Yoruba and Ndigbo, who is the real winner/real loser in the Nigeria-Biafra War?
Q#6
After over 5 decades of aligning with Arewa North to "defeat" Biafra, in the Nigeria-Biafra War, are Yoruba of Nigeria better off - economically, politically, educationally, psychological, scientifically, emotionally, individually and collectively - in Gowon's post-Biafra Nigeria than they would have been in Aburi Accord- restructured Nigeria?


These are intelligent questions they won't be able to provide answers for.

Britain pushed a propaganda to other world powers that Nigeria must not be allowed to break up because it will lead to upheavals across Africa since many other countries will face local insurrections. However, it has been proven that Britain's motivation was not about our wellbeing as Nigerians and Africans but purely based on their own selfish economic interests. Had it been Nigeria was broken up in 1967 or the Aburi Accord that was signed in Ghana effectively implemented, it would have led to economic development and stability in West Africa instead of widespread bloodshed, instability and underdevelopment we are experiencing today.

If 51 years after, the Yorubas are now agitating for the same thing they joined others to attack Igbos for, then it means the Igbos were right from day one.

Now that our has become worthless, the same Britain that supplied Nigeria more arms and ammunitions than they ever had need of, in their desperation to protect their assets have suddenly become apathetic to Nigeria.

Lol.

Try to read that my quote again and you’ll understand what I did.

To you Ibos, your truth is the only truth and even if one provide a million evidence, you will always say present this again and that is fake news. I am not surprised, it’s in you guys DNA.

I present pictorial, video, journal, and even a decree to back my argument but you all keep saying we should mention this, oh it’s that, it’s fake news, it’s bla bla bla.

I just tried to use the same logic of denying news in that my quote. You can see I just did like Ofoigbo is doing by saying the people are hallucinating or saying rubbish.

Hence I said in my post too that maybe the victims from Nigeria soldiers are also under the spell of Ojukwu to lie that Nigeria military killed them. It’s just serving you guys in your own coin.

Don’t think all what I said on this thread is meant to convince an Ibo man, lol I have known how your psyche work for too long to waste my time convincing any Ibo man.

The Ijaw citizens that did the video are not stupid, they know their history, and a million Igbo denial cannot change that!

You are just too empty and obviouslyhas nothing to offer to this discussion.
I guess this is too much information for you abi? but no matter hard you want to deny it,it won't change the fact that your pathetic father's rape and killed innocents. People like you shouldn't be talking about shameless when igbos are not know for dignity.

Same with Ijaw. Ijaw will run away from question 5 if it is thrown to them because reality doesn't need propaganda. Theirs is worse. A whole nation looking like a village while sultan of sokoto owns 26 oil Wells
Why will ijaws give a Bleep about who won or lost? the point is our father's did well by siding with the Nigerian army and fought against igbos who want to make us 12th class citizens by all means. Talking about winning and losing are you igbos not disturbing our ears with how Nigeria refused to hand you guys presidency all these years? I think you igbos should answers that question.

You obviously do not know this, but a good chunk of the Biafran officers were from Ijawland. A lot of them were in the army.
Senator Ben Bruce's elder brother was at some point, the head of the Biafran Airforce.
And you want me to believe these people ordered the massacre of their people.

Gen. Efiong who was the chief of staff could never have condoned such actions. He was a gentleman and a dove personality-wise.

We have heard so much of these concocted stories.

How come Red Cross or any other reputable global organisation haven't authenticated these your massacre claims?
Who did ijaws support during the war? with biafras or with the Nigerian army? going by your own logic and that of your dumb igboid brother logic it is safe to say that many igbos were also in the Nigerian army,if they were in the Nigerian army how can you igbos blame the Nigerian army of killing and starving 3 millions igbos children when in reality those act were done by igbo people.
You see how empty headed you truly sound igboid?

The irony in that highlighted statement couldn't get more hilarious if you look at the events of today. Your fathers fought on the Federal side against Igbos, how did that turn out for your people? today your land and resources have been become the official porn industry of Nigeria where every Musa, Chukwuma, Tunde take turns to fu*k your people and take all your resources via oil wells, even foreign multinationals aren't left out in the pillaging. Aboki dey use una oyel develop Kano, Abuja, Kaduna etc while Ijaw land with your tiny Bayeksay is a complete shithole... even dividends of your "Oyel" una no see enjoy as your lands lie in a bed of utter ruins, pollution and neglect... your fathers fought against Igbos yet the same Nigeria under Obasanjo wiped out a whole community from the map some years ago in Odi, successive regimes and administrations in Nigeria (military and civilian alike) all dominated by the North have rendered your people as economic serfs that keep laboring to serve the interests of the feudal Lords with nothing in return... aren't you guys currently worse than 12th class citizens in the current sociopolitical and economic arrangement of Nigeria? at least Igbos can with little or no government support or handouts can boast of a thriving commercial sector with the likes of coscharis, Innoson, Zinox, Onitsha market, Aba entrepreneurs etc all producing and providing essential services boost the economy... what can your people currently boast of besides your "oyel" which is public property to the North, and is about to go out of demand and appeal with the globalization of solar energy? yet Igbos are your problem, your idiocy is truly entertaining.

Blah blah blah You are talking about Odil massacre, when Igbo people invade our community rape,kidnapped killed our people without a cause you called it a lie. Spare me the roster and bull stories I'm not interested, if you igbos can denied the abominations carried out by your fathers then one would imagine what Biafra will look like.
Like I said our father's did well by fighting against yours,I have never seen any ijaw man woman boy or girl disturbining igbo people peace or space we are always minding our business. Heck I'm yet to see one ijaw person in the east, unlike you igbos who keeps invading our space every damn time,what's you igbos deal mustafa? since you igbos are this and that why not just stay in the east and allow us to enjoy our lands in peace? undecided

You really think Igbos are your enemies? Deep down in your heart of hearts (forget playing to the Igbo phobic nairaland gallery for a second) and be honest with yourself, are you better off in the current Nigerian set up your fathers fought for?

Note that I'm an Anioma man from the Enuani part of Delta state, and I among many other rational thinking Igbos aside from the delusional ipob factions don't want a nation with Non-Igbo minorities, the Biafra the realistic Igbo man wants is a Biafra where we will all share a common language, culture, and value system... you Non-Igbos in the Niger Delta can sort yourselves out, but it will be idiotic and borderline disingenuous of you lots to think the Igbos are anywhere close to your problems right now.

You see how empty headed you truly sound igboid?

Awolowo, Bola I've and Enahoro that were justifying starvation of some. And children as an instrument of war were not Igbos.

Ike Nwachukwu who was half Igbo, half Fulani requested that he shouldn't be deployed in Igboland.

Ogbemudia and Adekunle and Murtala known to commit the vast majority of these massacres were all non-Igbos, so yet again, you are making no sense.

Isheagu people have reeled out irrefutable facts and the best you all can do is to try and confuse matters rather than admitting you're descended from evil forebears who massacred women and children.

You guys specialise in making unsubstantiated statements, that cannot stand the test of logic and facts.
