Gowon-Fani-Kayode

“I cannot celebrate the birth of a man who presided over such carnage and neither can I describe him as a hero. Nigeria cannot make much progress or truly prosper until she apologises to the Igbo and Biafrans for the great evil that we visited upon them during the civil war,” he wrote on his twitter page.”

These were the exact words of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, with which he dismissed the encomiums being lavished of former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, who prosecuted the civil war against Biafra between 1967 and 1970.

Fani-Kayode, who said he should be counted out of the celebration of the former Head of State, as he turned 85 years a few days, said of Gowon, who was sent parking eventually from office in a bloodless coup that he supervised the slaughtered of three million Biafran civilians, which he described one of the greatest genocides in history.

He said: “When the real history of the country is written, the role of Gowon and the other Nigerian commanders during the civil war will be put in proper perspective. The slaughter of 3 million Biafran civilians in that war is the greatest act of black on black genocide in human history.”
