Countdown to Armageddon

Countdown to Armageddon The outburst was premeditated and the delivery was properly rehearsed. It unleashed vitriolic excesses on the Igbo. It described the Igbo as unruly, ungrateful, uncultured, acrimonious and stubborn. The Igbo were also packaged as a people with insatiable criminal obsessions. That was the Northern Youth Coalition, spewing hate against the Igbo....... more

Who lifted the veil on Biafra?

Fate of crime suspects in UK and Nigeria

Fate of crime suspects in UK and Nigeria One question that should agitate the minds of politico-historical researchers on Nigeria vis-a-vis our contemporary times is: why the seeming wide gulf and difference between how the British system and the Nigerian law enforcement agents treats their respective crime suspects.
