Nigeria-Biafra: Show evidence of projects in the Southeast – Omilhobo challenges Gowon


Human rights lawyer Malcolm Omilhobo has challenged former military head of state, retired General Yakubu Gowon, to show evidence of federal government projects established in southeastern Nigeria after the Biafra civil war years ago. I filed a complaint.

Omirhobo said in a post through his X account on Sunday.

He was reacting to Gowon's latest comments on the Biafran civil war.

“I’m glad General Gowon is alive when I make my point.

I urge Gowon that the Federal Government repair, rehabilitate or replace any of the hospitals, markets, schools, buildings and roads that were destroyed by deliberate bombing by the Nigerian Air Force and its Arab mercenaries after the Nigeria-Biafra war. We demand that they show us the evidence that they did so,” Omirhobo said. He said.

“We challenge him to show us the federal projects that his government established in eastern Nigeria after the war.
I demand that Gowon show the palliative or financial support that the post-war government gave to the easterners.

“We need evidence of government efforts to help children in the east catch up in the education system after being out of school for more than three years.
I challenge him to show how many Easterners who lost their jobs in the war were reabsorbed after the war.

“Listen to me, the war ended with Nigeria as the victor and the Easterners as the loser. The Plateau government's (3R) policy of reconciliation, reconstruction, and reconstruction was word of mouth and deed.”

Recall that the former head of state revealed to journalists after his meeting with President Bola Tinubu how he was criticized for failing to prosecute the Biafra civil war.

Gowon, who ruled Nigeria from 1966 to 1975, said, “If you remember, when we were at war, I acted too slowly and Nigeria probably wouldn't survive, so we should start having a discussion now.'' Well, did it or didn't it? They probably don't know about the underground issues, so that's our position.”
