British Divide and Rule Colonial Policy Caused the Nigerian-Biafran War

I am from Igbo royalty. But I don't believe in monarchy. Because I prefer democracy.
All these glitz and razzmatazz of the grandiosity of the monarchy of England belong to the British Museum .

The Queen of England and Gen. Yakubu Gowon.
The Queen supported Nigeria against Biafra.

The day the British people end the celebration of their monarchy,  they will begin to realise the true definition of liberation in modern civilisation.

All the  sociopolitical crises in Anglophone Africa are the consequences of British imperialism through colonialism.  The consequences of the Machiavellian Divide and Rule Policy of the British colonial rule in Nigeria through their racist Sir Frederick John Dealtry Lugard, Baron Lugard of Abinger caused the political crises leading to the catastrophic uncivil war of 1967-1970 resulting in the loss of more than 1 million Nigerians, including the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Igbo children in the defunct Republic of #Biafra. After the internecine uncivil war, the federal forces plundered and pillaged southeast of Nigeria; looting the properties of Igbo families and raping Igbo girls and women. My mother lost three of her children; her elder brother, Captain Woke Ugwubujo of the brave #Biafran Army; several in-laws and relations who you will read about in my "Biafran Child" to released on @Amazon.

Nigerian soldiers during WW2.

I dedicate this post in memorial tribute to my great father, Sunday Eke, one of the brave  Nigerian soldiers who helped the British and Allied Forces to defeat the Japanese soldiers in Burma during WW2 and to my uncle Captain Nwoke with all other Nigerian soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the peace and unity of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as we celebrate the Armed Forces Remembrance Day on January 15.

I am a soldier who does not need any military uniform. A warrior of the school of Sun Tzu.

" The most dangerous warriors don't wear uniform. "
