What Gowon said about Biafra war, Igbos and Ojukwu

Shortly after the Biafran civil war, Ex-Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon was interview by a foreign media host who asked him series of questions concerning the Biafra war. General Gowon blamed late Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu for the Biafra war; including the sufferings and starvation that followed. According to him, Nigeria never hated or took the Igbos as enemies right from the beginning, as Ojukwu had made them to believe and that Igbos would be treated as equal citizens of Nigeria based on their behaviour and performance.
