The deaths of more than 2 million people in Nigeria as a result of the brutal civil war which ended over 50 years ago are a scar on the nation’s history.
For most Nigerians, the war over the breakaway state of Biafra is generally regarded as an unfortunate episode best forgotten, but for the Igbo people who fought for secession, it remains a life-defining event.
The Nigerian government led by Yakubu Gowon, declared war and after 30 months of fighting, Biafra surrendered. On 15 January 1970, the conflict officially ended.
Many years after the war, Nigeria is still battling to maintain its unity, with various groups, not just the Igbo, calling for the restructuring of Africa’s most populous state.
A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-kayode, is still groaning the effects of the war on the Biafran men, women and children as most people especially children starved to death during the war.
The former Minister maintain that, the then military head of state, Yakubu Gowon starved over 3 million Biafrans to death without any apology.
Taking to twitter, he shared a disturbing video of children and adults starving to death, he wrote;
Gowon & Nigeria starved 3 million Biafrans to death during the civil war whilst Churchill & the UK starved 3 million Bengali Indians to death during WW 11.Neither nation apologised or paid reparations for these acts of genocide,mass murder ðnic cleansing.This is UNACCEPTABLE.
