In 1960, fifty thousand Biafran men, women, and children were rounded up in several cities, towns and villages in Northern and Western Nigeria and slaughtered like chicken. Young girls were gang raped by scores of men and then corralled to leper colonies to be raped by lepers before being killed. Nursing mothers had their breasts cut off. Pregnant women first had their abdomen cut open; the fetuses yanked out and kicked like footballs before the babies were slaughtered.
Men had gasoline poured on them then set ablaze to burn like bonfires.
Several hundred thousand men and women were hacked, tortured, maimed, mouth slit open from ear to ear, limbs chopped off, eyes gouged out, and other types of unspeakable acts of brutality.

In all, over two million Igbo Biafran refuges ran back to their homeland in Eastern Nigeria as refuges

Nigeria did this to the Igbo and other people of Eastern Nigeria in 1966. Most of the people who organized and supervised the perpetration of this crime have gone on to become Heads of State of Nigeria and have wined and dined with leaders of the free world. Satisfied that the world did not react to their heinous crimes against an innocent people, Nigeria's leaders declared a war of genocide on Igbo Biafrans.

The Nigerian government completely blockaded Biafra by land, sea and air. Then, she went on to commit the worst genocide since World War 11, second only to the Jewish holocaust in its brutality, horror, inhumanity, and brazen barbarism. Top Nigerian government officials following in the footstep of Hitler, stated categorically as official Nigeria government policy, "starvation is a legitimate instrument of warfare."

Just as Hitler did to the Jews, the Nigerian government went on to starve to death millions of innocent Igbo Biafran babies, children, pregnant women, old men and women. The Nigerian government poisoned food, including baby' milk with arsenic, cyanide and other poisons and smuggled these into Biafran territory. No one knows how many thousand of babies, children, and adults were thus murdered, poisoned to death by the Nigerian government.

A report by a team of experts (chemist, microbiologist, pharmacist, micro-chemical analyst, and expert in forensic medicine) led by a United State Senator, Charles Goodell who visited Biafra and examined samples of food, confirmed that food items, especially salt, powdered and evaporated milk smuggled into Biafra by Nigeria, were poisoned with arsenic and cyanide (US congressional Record, 1969, P.4374.)

To maximize the number of Biafrans killed during this genocidal war, the Nigerian government instructed her pilots to target hospitals, open markets, refugee camps, children's feeding centers, Churches, schools, and to bomb and strafe them without mercy. Again no one knows the exact number of Biafrans civilians who were killed in these genocidal bombings.

"Heroes fought like Biafrans."

Our History must be told to our children and generations to come.

Biafrans proved themselves heroes and superior soldiers in a full scale, high intensity frontal war that was a de-facto war with Great Britain. It was a war fought practically without guns, against an enemy that was brimming with an endless stream of sophisticated weapons supplied by Britain, the Soviet Union et al.

Given the abundant arms and amour available to the Nigerian army and the presence of British military experts and consultants who were involved in all stages of planning in Nigerian army headquarters as against a largely unarmed rag-tag Biafran army, the war should have ended in 1 week, 1 month or at most 2 months, but the superiority, determination and doggedness of the Biafran forces held Nigerian forces down in deadly conflict over every inch of ground for close to 3 years.

In comparison with other battles, where the Americans defeated Iraq in gulf war 1 and 2 in less than 2 weeks, the Japanese conquest of most of Asia in less than 3 months during World War 2, the German defeat of Dutch and Belgian forces in 3 days, the defeat of French forces in spite of the famous "Maginot line" and a well armed national army in only 6 weeks and the whole of Continental Europe in less than 3 months, the Israeli defeat of the whole Arab armies (Yom Kippur war) in only 7 days etc the Biafran war is perhaps the greatest frontal, full scale epic battle of resistance against all odds to date in human history. Biafrans resited their enemies for 3 years.

Nigeria hiding under the vague and meaningless concept of Territorial Integrity declared a genocidal war on the innocent people of Biafra and with the help of Britain and the Soviet Union slaughtered Biafrans in millions while the world watched. The slaughter has continued and from 1980 to 2007 more than 100,000 Biafrans have been murdered in different parts of Nigeria in carefully organized pogroms that Nigeria calls riots.
