    its almost thirty years too late for an Awo apology, is it not? Gowon and Nigeria were well within their rights to organize a blockade on Biafra. Ojukwu had a duty to open a corridor for supplies for the people of Biafra. Why did Ojukwu refuse to open a land corridor? What did other eminent members of the Biafra government do to convince him otherwise. Why did the “Jews of Africa” resort to the well known Arab tactics of using hungry refugees as bargaining chips? 

    Nobody ever said war is pretty. Biafra never gave that a thought when its adventurers bombed Yaba and Agege in the early days of the war. Biafra drew the Yoruba people and the Midwest into the war by its military action in the early days. This resort to high sounding accusations of genocide and war crimes is not only revisionist  but a puerile diversion away from the greedy miscalculations that bred the disaster called Biafra.

    Finally, with balanced perspective from Achebe apology, rather than biased condemnation, should be demanded from the very perpetrators of the civil war pogrom against the Igbos, particularly the teeming lives terminated by sheer OBI OJOO. Let ill-informed supporters of this sin against man kind take note. Yesterdays was the Igbos… who knows tomorrow?
