WHEN Okey Anueyiagu wrote Biafra: The Horrors of War, The Story of a Child-Soldier, it struck a nerve in the readers. It became storytelling so critically assuring and involving that it has become difficult and hard to imagine anyone reading it without being mesmerized. The book provides a genuinely radical new highlight and insight into that sordid war and fits so tightly with great illumination at this riven and pivotal moment in the history of Nigeria and of the world.
Living with that war and actively participating in it, breathing it and sucking in all the evilness of it, exposes Okey to all the pulses of his life and the lives of the millions that perished in that war with immense and indescribable relevance and indelible memories. Okey has pulled off something remarkable, something ‘unmissable,’ unforgettable, timely and timeless.
The book portrays a classic case of one generation’s cry from the heart to another’s elusive quest for a life of bliss and tranquility; a breathless nuance of sadness, bitterness, cries and soullessness.

A famous Nigerian politician once said (in spirited defense of the Yoruba) that “before I became a Nigerian, I was Yoruba”. And another one said: “We will write this for all to read. Anyone, soldier or not that kills the Fulani takes a loan repayable one day no matter how long it takes”.
The Yoruba has, in moderation, said his own. The Fulani has, in extremism, said his own; let me now, as an Igbo, say my own, and here it is: Whoever takes the life of an IPOB member is taking the life of an Igbo and therefore will ultimately account to Ndigbo. It’s not a threat; it’s a fact.
When I read about the senseless and criminal massacre of unarmed innocents who gathered in Enugu on August 23, 2020 in peaceable exercise of their constitutional rights, I quickly began to search the news to learn more and I learnt plenty, including particularly the somewhat dismissive refrain that “those killed are just IPOB members”.
