BIAFRA: Renowned English Author, Frederick Forsyth Reveals Why Nnamdi Kanu Hates Nigeria, British Govt

The Nigerian civil war of the late 1960s was one of the first occasions when Western consciences were awakened and deeply affronted by the level of the suffering and the scale of the atrocity being played out in the African Continent.

An in-depth look in the second paragraph on the 215th page of "The Biafra Story", one of the best selling books of Frederick McCarthy Forsyth, an English author, former journalist and spy, and occasional political commentator, lies the reason why the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu seems to always be apoplectic when issues about the Nigerian state is raised.

It is a feeling that will one day reap a bitter harvest unless the two peoples are kept apart by the Niger River.
