#SoundOff: The Myth Of The 1966 ‘Igbo Coup’ – See LIST Of Coupists (CLICK)

Clockwise: Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Ahmadu Bello, Samuel Akintola, Yakubu Gowon, Kaduna Nzeogwu, Johnson Aguiyi-Ironsi, Abubakar Tafewa-Balewa, Festus Okotie Eboh

Now take a look at the list of the major participants in ’66 coup plotters and render your own judgement:

1. Major Chukwuma Kaduna
Nzeogwu(Delta Igbo)

2. Major Adewale Ademoyega
(Yoruba) author of “Why we struck”

3. Capt. G. Adeleke(Yoruba)

4. Maj. Ifeajuna(Igbo)

5. Lt. Fola Oyewole(Yoruba) author of “The reluctant rebel”

6. Lt. R. Egbiko(Esean)

7. Lt. Tijani Katsina(Hausa/Fulani)

8. Lt. O. Olafemiyan(Yoruba)

9. Capt. Gibson Jalo(Bali)

10. Capt. Swanton(Middle Belt)

11. Lt. Hope Harris Eghagha (Urhobo)

12. Lt. Dag Warribor(Ijaw)

13. 2nd Lt. Saleh Dambo(Hausa)

14. 2nd Lt. John Atom Kpera(Tiv).

So, to an unbiased observer, what evidence can one provide to show that Igbos actually carried out the coup in order to exterminate other tribes and take over the country?

It is very easy to sell falsehood, but it is very difficult to provide facts to buttress your claims.

It is now clear even to a suckling, that the imperialist genocide is crammed up this murderous lies against the Igbos to find reasons to perpetually keep them under hate.

One even wonders why the Nigerian state and perpetrators of the gruesome genocide have been preventing the proper documentation of that episode for the benefits of her posterity.

  1. They only give a dog bad name to Kill it. It is now crystal clear that the undoing of the Ibos in contemporary Nigeria is out of sheer hatred. The Ibos themselves do not know this, as to find where to pitch their tents. The intelligence of Iboman in commerce, industries and technology has not been translated into a strategic security posturing to know his enemies and take a proactive protective action. They have been blindfolded with the pseudopodic dragnets of their commercial gains and establishments, forgetting that, you can only enjoy the dividends of your establishment and hardwork when you are secured. The only place to get that security is ones homeland given the ever hatred perpetrated by other tribes in the contraption called Nigeria.

    If you find that your neighbor do not like you, and no matter what you do he still hates you, the best to do is to find your tent of isolated existence even if hunger will kill you and live in forever peace.

    The truth behind the contraption called Nigeria shall one day be told, and the marginalized people of the Country including the Ibos one day be set free.
