Late Brigadier General Benjamin Adekunle alias Black Scorpion, had deep hatred for the Igbo and fought them with bitterness during the Biafra-Nigeria War of 1967-70, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi, First Republic Minister of Aviation and chairman, Reparation Committee of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has said.

Reacting to the Adekunle’s death, Chief Amaech noted that it is against African culture to speak ill of the dead, but said Adekunle put aside every rule of engagement and fought the Igbo with uncommon hatred and wanted to annihilate everything that had breath in the region.

Chief Amaechi said in today’s edition of Saturday Sun “He ordered that anything that moves in Igbo land and part of present Delta State, including trees should be killed. He went to hospitals and killed health workers and patients.

“He committed great atrocity against the Igbo and most Igbo would not forget him in a hurry, but as I said, it is now history.”

Chief Amaechi said he met the late soldier at one forum and reminded him of his evil deeds against the Igbo during the civil war.

According to him, Adenkunle was sober and expressed regrets over his actions and apologised.

When asked if the apology was made public, he said he didn’t know if he openly apologised but the apology was when they met at an event.

Chief Amaechi said the N2.4 trillion reparation the five South East states and Igbo-speaking Delta are demanding the Federal Government to pay them is part of Adekunle’s evil against the Igbo.
