💣 In Which Year Was Nigerian Civil War and What Was the Reason for the War?
A particular race or tribe in Nigeria called IGBO, tried to separate from Nigeria. This resulted to a Civil War. Why did this tribe wanted to separate from Nigeria?
It started in 1966 and was very complex to outsiders. I believe it involved different groups and the control over the lucrative oil production in the Niger Delta also played a vital part within it all.
That was a civil war, I can’t say much about it. I didn’t know much about it.
The same situation is exists in Indonesia where separatist group in West Papua is trying to declare independence and challenges the ruling of Indonesian government. Compared to Indonesian administrative and military power, this separatist group is nothing. But, they are where they are right now because there are powers which back them up. And these powers are people/organizations that will get advantages when West Papua is succeed in their effort to declare independence.
Any civil war, especially in developing countries, is rarely happen without the involvement of outside actors. It also must be the case for Nigeria.
The cause of the civil war, was due to injustice against the Igbo tribe.Mass killing of Igbo tribe living in the northern part of Nigeria, also lead the cause of the civil war.
The War started in 1966 between local group called igbo tribe living in the northern part of the country.
