Product Description

In this memoir, once military intelligence agent and now professor gives his account of Nigeria in the period before, during and after the Nigerian Civil War. 

A must-read for any Nigerian adult or political scientist … 

Titus Okereke brings to the forefront a crucial part of our history that might just be receding from memory: coup upon coup, genocide in the north, massacres in the south, air raids and assault on women and children, organised starvation, and deaths of millions. There is an important lesson inherent in this account: abandoning the past is not a good way of moving on; hence a comparison is drawn between what used to be and what is. Okereke does a good job of showing (or reminding) us what we had before we lost it all to ethnic conflict, power tussle, religious extremism, impatience, avarice and greed. However, he also argues that some of our strife was brought on by imperial blunders. The verdict is out: the past shapes the future, and to create a new future we must be familiar with and learn from the past.
