Interview with Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu

Great revealing interview with Ojukwu where he discusses several areas of Nigeria’s history including the January 1966 and July 1966 coups, the Awolowo -v- Akitola conflict, the Yoruba/Igbo “carpet crossing” saga, the political rivalry between Azikiwe, Ahmadu Bello, Balewa, Awolowo, Akintola et al, the 1966 pogroms and the educational disparity between northern and southern Nigeria.

  2. Its very unfair what the editors of this video did to Ojukwu, Things he didn’t say was put on the screen to insinuate he meant such. I hope viewers would look at the interview video closely…

    1. Such as?…

      1. (1) Time: 20.14
        sharia war was on the caption at time 20.14 of the video, I didn’t hear Ojukwu say that, could the editors be ignorant of the difference between a sharia war and an ethnic-political-religious conflict, or could it be some propaganda of some sort? If I heard correctly, he said Igbos were also attacked in the west.
