Since Berlin shared Africa with out their enter, it gave Britain the proper to confiscate their commonwealth. Nigeria was the one colony with a British Governor-Normal on the eve of the independence. That speaks volumes!

Britain was used to getting its manner and calling the photographs. The prospect of independence introduced a harmful and unacceptable circumstance: negotiating with Biafrans to entry mineral sources particularly oil and fuel.

He has been within the dungeon of Division of State Sevices (DSS), receiving torture. His crime is for asking for equity, fairness, justice and freedom for all of the indigenous peoples trapped Nigeria. With this daring step taken by Cambridge College, it could be that Britain is lastly waking as much as actuality: {that a} decided individuals can’t be suppressed. It’s not too late for the British authorities  to make restitution. It’s the proper factor to do. It’s their solely path to redemption for all of the carnage they’ve brought about.
