Has Nigeria's Unity Been Worth The Millions Of Lives Lost In The Civil War? by gidgiddy: 9:00am On Aug 10
In 1967, three things happend that led Nigeria to civil war :-

1. The massacre of thousands of Igbos all over Nigeria, particularly in the North

2. The breaking of the Aburi agreement Ojukwu and Gowon signed in Ghana, by Gowon himself, which led to the third point

3. The declaration of Biafra by Ojukwu

The civil war that followed was brutal, my father fought in it as a Biafran soldier for three years. At the end of the war, the unity of Nigeria was restored, at the cost of between one and three million lives.

But has the unity of Nigeria been worth the millions lives lost in the war?

I asked my father this same question and he looked me said that when he was in the trenches fighting as a Biafran Soldier, he would sometimes turn on his Radio on at night when it was calm, and hear Gowon and other Nigerian leaders saying-

"Nigeria is indivisible"

"Our strength is in our diversity"

"We will be one great nation if we stay together"

"We have no other country but Nigeria"

"Those who want Nigeria to break up at the real enemy"

He said that sadly, over 50 years since the war ended, he is still hearing the same words from Nigerian leaders, including Gowon who is still alive, in their desperate bid to promote the unity of Nigeria, and that should tell me all I need to know

If Nigeria misses Peter Obi, it is finished. It is the masses again those determined to being the country to its grave. Nigeria's ruling class is a cult of organized crime. Similar to what we see across most of Africa, they're perpetuating a cycle of modern slavery of African masses. No one cares. The world doesn't because no one actually wants the blacks to be reckoned for something good. I'm anxious about Obi because he is fighting a Mafia class of Leeches that won't let go without a fight. Unless all Nigerians realize what's at stake, the slavery will continue. It even serves the purpose of Western world since it means that Nigeria, like the rest of Africa would continue to be a warehouse of raw materials.

And why is the much vaunted unity of Nigeria so sacrosanct?
Was Nigeria created by God!? Have you read about Nigeria in the Bible or the Koran? So if an inebriated Buhari dies today and he is asked by God to explain why he killed millions of people to keep Nigeria together, his answer will be what exactly? What exactly will be the wonderful excuse? This is a criminal British estate, created by a murderer named lugard. The name Nigeria, with all its racist connotations was from Lugards bedmate called Lady Shaw! How can you kill almost 5 million people to keep such evil colonial contraption going while pretending like you somehow believe in god? How can the same set of vermins that ruthlessly and desperately loot and misgovern the country at will, continue to lay any sort of claims to greater patriotism

You talk like you dont live in Nigeria. The entire insecurity in Igbo land is not up what is happening in Buhari's own home state of Katsina where Governor Masari is crying every day for his people to defend themselves and bandits are controlling different areas. 200 people killed in Zamfara, 80 killed in Danko-Wasago in Kebbi State, 78 killed by Fulani herdsmen in Logo, Benue, 33 murdered in Southern Kaduna. If you hear of what is happening in Taraba, Nasarawa and Niger, you will cry. The entire North has become bandit land

The South East is very peaceful compared to the North. There may the occasional scuffle between gunmen and the security forces, but that happens everywhere

Reason I say igbos living in the east will always live on assumptions

Very soon IPOB and Ekpa will copy that style and start killing igbos in numbers just to prove a point

That will be welcomed ..as long as they remain in igboland killing themselves .. they can even bomb out east from Nigeria map

That will be better ..

You keep mentioning what’s happening in the north

And what’s going on up north is nothing compare to what’s happening in igboland

And believe me .. no northern government will sent a serious force to protect Una or stop what’s going on in the east

Make Una kill Una self well and burn Una town before and serious force will be unreashed
