The Late Chief of Army staff, Ibrahim Attahiru, was the GOC 82 Division that handled Operation Python Dance in the South East. Many innocent Igbo youths were slaughtered for simply being Igbos and nothing more. Please, keep your crocodile tears jare.

My heart goes out to the 11 Other soldiers who died with the Chief of Army Staff Ibrahim Attahiru. We might never get to know your own names but we pray your souls find repose in the Lord even as we hope you were not unfortunate victims of a disaster aimed at one person.
