Another Video Nugget from Nigerian History


Here is another video from the Nigerian history archives. The audio is a little disappointing, but the footage has some great hidden gems including 1960s footage of then Lt-Colonel Gowon, Major Mobalaji Johnson, Ojukwu, and even Tafawa Balewa speaking during Nigeria’s pre-independence constitutional conference in London. There is also a clip of President Azikiwe speaking on the 1964 political crisis between he and PM Balewa. Some snippets of Major-General Aguiyi-Ironsi on the parade ground, and footage of his funeral too. Enjoy
