Odumegwu Ojukwu, the leader of the secessionist state of Biafra gives a speech in Akokwa, which is being broadcast by Biafran radio. Besieged by surrounding armies of Federal Nigeria and with starvation and disease rife among the population, Ojukwu attempts to rouse the rebel nation for what would be a last stand. Two months later, he will flee from Biafra and his deputy, Major General Phillip Effiong, like Ojukwu a former colonel of the Nigerian Army, will conduct the surrender.
