The horrors of the genocidal war visited upon Biafra in 1967-1970, conveniently swept under carpet by the Nigerian government and its international collaborators, are set to be exposed.
IPOB – the umbrella body of the present-day agitation for Biafra self-determination – is set to unearth the buried horrors and its attendant historic significance in an intellectual foray titled “Biafra Genocide Exhibition,” holding in the United Kingdom.
The event was held in Spain and Germany in 2017 and 2018 respectively, drawing mammoth crowd the world over. This year’s segment holding in the UK is considered very significant as the UK was the chief sponsor and architect of the genocide.
The exhibition which will take off later today, the 16th of August 2019, and continues tomorrow the 17th, at Goldsmiths University, London, will have a number of distinguished speakers. Lolo Carol Munday – a British and Deputy Head of IPOB Media worldwide – is one of the esteemed figures that will do their presentation today. The world is relishing this moment as imaginations are high on what a British will say of the genocide scripted by their own government. By her love for Biafra and her unwavering commitment to Biafra freedom, this British woman who has taken a Biafran title – Lolo – seems to be righting the wrongs of Britain.
Also to be in interaction today is Dr. Phillip Effiong Junior – the son of late General Phillip Effiong. General Phillip Effiong, an Akwa-Ibom man, was vice president of Biafra, and later, president of Biafra, taking over the mantle of leadership from Ojukwu. His son, Dr. Phillip Effiong Jr, continuing the struggle from where the departed general stopped, arrived in London yesterday for the exhibition. He will be in the interaction section today, and tomorrow will do his full time presentation.
In conversation with Effiong will be another historic figure, Tim Modu. Tim Modu is the son of Colonel T. C. Modu (Amaldike of Arondizuogu) who was a military Ambassador and International Negotiator for the Government of Biafra 1967 – 1970.
Other high profile speakers will be present to remind humanity of a history Nigerian government is fighting so hard to bury. Keep a date with them.
