Biafra War Full Video Part 6 (Raw war footage 1969)

The Nigerian Civil War (also known as the Biafra War and the Nigerian-Biafran War) was a civil war in Nigeria that was fought between the Nigerian government and the state of Biafra secession from July 6, 1967 to 15 January 1970. Biafra represented the nationalist aspirations of the Igbo people, whose leaders believed that they could no longer coexist with the federal government dominated by the North. The conflict was the result of political, economic, ethnic, cultural, and religious tensions that preceded the official decolonization of Nigeria by Britain from 1960 to 1963. The immediate causes of the war in 1966 included ethno-religious unrest in northern Nigeria, a military coup, a counter-coup, and the persecution of Igbo living in northern Nigeria. Controlling lucrative oil production in the Niger Delta has played an important strategic role.In one-year, federal government troops surrounded Biafra and conquered oil on the coast and the town of Port Harcourt. The blockade that was imposed during the next impasse led to mass starvation. During the two and a half years of the war, there were a total of around 100,000 military victims, while between 500,000 and 2 million Biafran civilians died of starvation.In the middle of 1968, images of malnourished and hungry children from Biafra saturated the mass media in Western countries. The plight of hungry Biafrans abroad has become famous, which has significantly increased funding and awareness of international non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The United Kingdom and the Soviet Union were the main supporters of the Nigerian government.For following upBiafra War Full Video Part 1 (Raw war footage 1969). https://youtu.be/V9cNlvo1Ut8Biafra War Full Video Part 2 (Raw war footage 1969). https://youtu.be/b_QlXwoEy08Biafra War Full Video Part 3 (Raw war footage 1969). https://youtu.be/FleDyR4jJGQBiafra War Full Video Part 4 (Raw war footage 1969). https://youtu.be/EO7G9c2Q0TUBiafra War Full Video Part 5 (Raw war footage 1969). https://youtu.be/8XEVJuEMRRIBiafra War Full Video Part 6 (Raw war footage 1969). https://youtu.be/8QvG3R-Xf6s#Biafra BiafraExit #Nigeria
