A Nigerian man took to Twitter to share his encounter with an old white lady who is the wife of a Biafran Army General.
@T_HoMegas revealed that the lady he met at a coffee shop in New York said they were among the last people to escape after Biafra fell.
The lady who recounted how people were selling their kids for salt and how they had to move every few weeks to avoid the advancing Nigerian Army, added that her husband who was the Military Administrator of the Midwest for Biafra during the Civil War couldn’t escape with them when their escape plane arrived because he was with his girlfriend.
He also confirmed that the name of the Biafran Army General was Major (Dr)Albert Nwazu Okonkwo.

“So I was sitting in this coffee shop in NY, and started talking to this old white lady. Turns out she was Married to the Military Administrator of the Midwest for Biafra during the Civil War. She lived in Benin and the East during the war.
She was one of the last people to escape after Biafra fell. They smuggled her and her kids out through Sao Tome and the CIA picked her up in the Netherlands.
She was also in Nigeria during the first coup and had so many stories to tell about its planning, execution and failures.
She told me how during the war, people were selling their kids for salt! And how they had to move every few weeks to avoid the advancing Nigerian Army.
Her husband didn’t escape with her cos when the plane came they couldn’t find him cos he was with his Girlfriend
This is why I love talking to strangers. The conversation started cos she was making fun of my Wharton shirt cis of Trump.
Just Googled her husband, and she’s right. He was a Major in the Biafran army and a big deal.”
