THE NIGERIAN-BIAFRAN BUREAUCRAT: An Account of Life in Biafra and within Nigeria By Onyegbula, Godwin A
Godwin Alaoma Onyegbula was formerly General Ojukwu’s top civilian aide and confidant, and Biafra’s chief ambassador. In this account, he conveys his intimate knowledge on questions such as the Biafran resistance and whether Ojukwu was involved in the coup of 15 January 1966. He further considers the merits of the French/Portuguese/South African axis to the Biafran diplomacy and war efforts; and how the beleaguered Biafran State survived for three years with under-equipped armed forces and wide-spread deprivation. Foreword by Ojukwu himself. 494pp, NIGERIA. SPECTRUM BOOKS LTD.
