Who Burnt Zik's House?

by Ngorom Peterside --- Though I do not condone violence as a means of settling disputes or differences, however, the family of Azikiwe deserve what they got. Perhaps, most Ibos have forgotten the role Zik played during the Nigeria Biafra war. It could be recalled that it was Zik's dubious role in the war that led to the losses Biafra suffered in the Egbema campaign.

Besides, the strategic importance of Egbema, the losses took a great toll of human lives. Zik's family lost only material thing, a building to be exact while many Ibo families lost their only sons. So what is more important human lives or building? Also, it is an insult for the governor of Anambra state to imply that Zik was an Ibo man.. Zik said it on many occasions and in many different ways that he was not an Ibo man.

Zik was the first political figure that claimed that Onitsha people migrated from Benin and settled in Ibo land and as such they are not Ibos. So Zik should be taken for his words. One of the ironies of the pre war politics of Nigeria is that a non Ibo was chosen to champion the cause of the Ibos.

Well illiteracy has played its master piece. Never again, never again will a person from ontisha be selected to champion the cause of the Ibos, since by their own admission they are not Ibos. Such misplacement of trust as electing one that does not share the Ibo philosophy to champion the Ibo cause has caused the Ibos a great deal.
