Letter to a separatist, By Abdulrazaq Magaji I truly cannot get a handle to it but, it is heart-warming that you have started moderating your views on the agitation for Biafra.

Between Nigerian Igbo and Biafran Agitators: A Northerner’s perspective, By Yushau A. Shuaib

Between Nigerian Igbo and Biafran Agitators: A Northerner’s perspective, By Yushau A.

The death of Joy Odama: Acid test for Ibrahim Idris and the Nigeria Police, By Godwin Onyeacholem

The death of Joy Odama: Acid test for Ibrahim Idris and the Nigeria Police, By Godwin Onyeacholem There is no question that in Nigeria, the poor, the less privileged and the largely dispossessed majority who find themselves in that demeaning class of human categorisation have been condemned to a life of perpetual oppression.
