      …and the difference is unique!
      Let’s not create boundaries and / or pressures. There’s always a beginning and room for everyone to grow and expand.

    No, we should not forget it. Lives were lost, families were separated. It is part of a people’s history. He who feels it, knows it.

    So many different versions of Biafra movie will soon be out and no one person has the full account. Just watch. Different versions of Biafra.
    Biafra is not limited to Igbo people and one person’s version does not tell the whole story. I am just gonna watch this unfold while I do my own Biafra, how hungry they went or Biafra how Ojukwu sold them out or Biafra, what the betrayal​ is wrong with you? or even Biafra the untold story of a 189yr old native doctor… Anyhow, as long as the DSS doesn’t arrest you for releasing a movie they view as a threat to National Security!!!!!

      no two people’s experience of any event is ever the same. the idea is to create an awareness of the events that unfolded from one or few people’s perspectives. the audience is encouraged to explore different objective accounts, and from that, form their overall opinion.

      @Ada_ugo – My point exactly. You just repeated what I said . Different accounts and perspectives will emerge. Another point I made was that one person’s rather extreme account may be seen as encouraging threat to National Security and especially based upon the current climate and sentiments shared by Nnamdi Kanu’s supporters. In that era, there was a lot of hearsay and sensational news feed….
      Let’s watch events unfold and watch out for my docu- series, biopic etc. It’s a story I am passionate about and worked on in my Thesis.
      Looking forward to all the different versions. It should be very interesting to watch though.

    “unu ana ezo ka ife unu na eme”
