AntiZikist:
Considering that Nigeria's economy was largely agricultural based at the time of the civil war, why did Biafra require food aid ?

Where they not farming or where they dependent on food imports from across Nigeria ?

The Egyptian Airforce was bombing those farms and ground troops shooting at whatever they see.

Use your brains before you open such thread. It does not matter how much you farm, or how large your food production is, once you are displaced by war , you will face hunger and famine. Even the farmer producing the food is running from bullets and bombs and cannot farm
With those Egyptian Air Raids, farming was a terrible endeavour then.

Doesn't make sense



You don't bomb farms .

You use defoilants like Agent Orange which the yanks used in Vietnam to clear dense jungles and poison rice farms
