A MUST READ FOR EVERY IGBO PERSON (There was a Country)

Awolowo saw the dominant Igbos at the time as the obstacles to that goal (leading political power), and when the opportunity arose - the Nigeria-Biafra war - his ambition drove him into a frenzy to go to every length to achieve his dreams. In the Biafra case it meant hatching up a diabolical policy to reduce the numbers of his enemies significantly through starvation - eliminating over two million people mainly members of future generations."
--- Chinua Achebe Africa's greatest writer and world's most widely read author of the 20th century in his book: "There was a Country: A Personal History of Biafra" page 233, published November 2012 by The Penguin Press, New York USA.
