An eyewitness account of the cause of the emergence of the Republic of Biafra and the consequent Nigerian Civil War awaits readers in Broken Back Axle. Authored by Obiagbaosogu N. Ignatius Ebbe, this Xlibris release succinctly narrates how the culturally oppressed segment of the Igbo nation sabotaged the Igbo masterminded Republic of Biafra.
In this book, Ebbe returns to the root of the Nigeria-Biafra war. Readers will learn that the Igbos’ Jewish enterprising and academic acumen endeared them the love and partnership of the colonial masters, who used them in their governance of the Nigerian people. However, that marriage of convenience between the Igbos and the colonial masters in Nigeria subjected the Igbos to the hatred of their ethnic neighbors. Immediately after the Nigerian independence, that cultural cold war surfaced during the Nigeria-Biafra war (Nigerian Civil War, 1967–1970).
Broken Back Axle is written to expose how the modus operandi of the oppressed Igbos rooted their economic and political advantage over their oppressors in the committee of the Nigerian federation at the eclipse of Biafra.
After revealing the oppressed Igbos’ partaking in ending the lives of some of their comrades, including the multifarious attempts on the life of the author, this book emphasizes the need for meaningful integration of the oppressed cultural group with their oppressors. This is the only way to forge solidarity and for the Igbos to find a place in the leadership and governance in the Republic of Nigeria.
Bringing a message of unity, this book advances that all Igbos must join hands to end all cultural segregations of all persons in Igboland. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to Xlibris.com.
