Former Anambra State governor (1983) Christian C. Onoh. in the interview he gave to TELL (2001) he was asked the following question:
"You have just said the British did not trust the Igbo. The others too apparently do not trust the Igbo. The question is Why? What was it that...
...They feared in the igboman?"
Onoh replied:
"I'll answer you this way. On july 15,1967, when Biafrans went to the midwest, the Russians said a country that is not yet two months old that can manufacture 'Ogbunigwe' (Monster bomb) and rockets, must be feared. We IgbO at that...
...that time celebrated that we were feared. unfortunately, it is this fear in the Western world that made them unite to subjugate the Igbo. I was an ambassador plenipotentiary sent to the British during the civil war and they passed a legislation putting a stop to the....
... exportation of arms to Biafra. In so doing they're protecting their interests"
(TELL, 15 January 2001)
