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.

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.
