Ndigbo, from Delta to Jamaica (You will be amazed and still laugh your lungs out!): Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
If you talk of Biafra, give it to Ndigbo of Delta State. I will keep telling it to the world. The youngest GOC was Col. Azum Asoya from Okpanam, the land of Chukwuma Nzeogwu. Other notable GOCs were Brig. Conrad Nwawo, Sylvanus Nwajei and Joe Achuzia.The Head of the Biafran Navy, Capt. Wilfred Anuku and Army Adjutant General, Brig. Nduka Okwechime, Head of Military Intelligence, Bernard Odogwu and Ben. Ochei, a Brigade commander all hailed from Delta.In the Biafran Air Force, Alex Agbafuna gave his life. Larry Obiechi, Chris Lanky Ogbolu and Gab Ebube showed class in the sky. Even after the war, some Igbouzo [Ibusa] boys refused to surrender. They remained in the bush fighting. That is the hometown of Capt. Onwuenweoyi Uwaechue and Lt. Anikam Okolichi.I do not think there is a better Igbo than Prof. Nolue Emenanjo in terms of contribution to the development of the language. Igbouzo migrated from Isu, Imo State as warriors. That is the place of Admiral Dele Ezeoba, a former Chief Of Naval Staff as well Emmanuel Olisadebe, the footballer who made the Polish president bend rules on the way to the 2002 World Cup.In Rivers State, you cannot scheme out a man like Peter Odili who suffered so much pain and was at the Biafran School of Infantry with Lt. Peter Adomokai. Odili’s wife, Justice Mary Odili, is from Imo. Victor Masi, a former minister almost died fighting for Biafra, just like Lt. Col. Okilo, an Izon.
Bussa, the face you see on the five cents of Barbados was an Igbo revolutionary.
Rotimi Amaechi and Nyesom Wike know they are Igbo, let them flaunt their Ikwerre dialect as much as Christian Onoh would speak Wawa and Jaja Nwachukwu rap in Ngwa. Chibuike is just a smart guy who bears the Yoruba name Rotimi. Tell me, who prepares his meals? Wifey, Judith is from Anambra.

In the North, the Sultan of Sokoto is an ‘Igbo man’ who served in Nsukka. His brother, late Sultan Maccido, entered a catholic church in Lagos because of Mr. Egegbara. Sultan Abubakar, honoured Dike Okwuosa, from Asaba with the title of Bada Mafara [King Maker].
