Odumegwu Ojukwu

by Edd Doerr

On Nov 30 the Washington Post ran an obituary for Odumegwu Ojukwu, who ran the secessionist Nigerian state of Biafra from 1966 to 1970. Ojukwu died only a couple of days after my article "Nigeria's Civil War: The Untold Story" appeared on this blog on Nov 22.

The obit contained the sort of short, "sanitized" account of that civil conflict that my article was written to correct.
