My escapades as Biafran warplane pilot –Portuguese


At a time when the Will of the late Biafran leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, is generating controversy, a Portuguese pilot, who flew Biafran war planes during the civil war, has given insight into the air strikes that characterised the war.

According to Mr. Artur Alves, who interacted with Saturday Sun on the Internet, Biafran soldiers converted modified the B26 plane to suit their purpose during the war.

The war pilot, who is based abroad, spoke on this and others.

Could you tell us how you were contacted to work for Biafra?

After I ended my commission with the Portuguese Air Force I got a job working in Angola flying a Piper Aztec to a big coffee corporation and an ex-camaraderie and good friend Capt Gil Pinto de Sousa invited me to join and organise a squadron of Harvard T6G that we would have to fly into Biafra and operate in combat missions. Capt Pinto de Sousa was also an ex-Biafran Air Force pilot. He was contracted to fly a B25 Mitchel, which was destroyed in an accident in Port Harcourt. Landlocked from the early 1968, Biafra was fighting for their very existence, a fight against starvation and a well-armed enemy.

How did you fly the aircraft to Biafra and from where?

Due to diplomatic reasons, we had to dismount and mount again the aircraft in Bissau, Portuguese Guinea at the time. They went by ship and the Portuguese Air Force in Bissau did a great job mounting the aircraft very fast. We had six T6G ready and we were only three pilots. The flight from Bissau to Abidjan was also very complicated. The British Foreign Affairs had a long and powerful arm and convinced the Portuguese government not to authorise Portuguese pilots to fly the aircraft out of Bissau, but we were veterans of the air force and we had a plan. We convinced the Bissau Air Base Commander to let us rob the planes during the night and take them to Abidjan. That was what we did. The flight was in the limits and we carried also an extra tank in the back seat. The fuel smell was intense and I had no courage to light up a cigarette. We had to land before Abidjan in Sassandra, as was already fixed. We had no problems in Sassandra and we continued the flight to Abidjan.

In Bissau, one of the pilots decided not to continue and in Abidjan we had the same problem. But we welcome a new one, José Pignattely, also a veteran from the Portuguese Air Force. Gil Pinto de Sousa returned to Bissau and flew another plane to Abidjan. We had four planes in Abidjan and we were three pilots. Me, Gil and Pignattely. From Abidjan, we had the last leg to fly to Uli. We had decided to be airborne in order to land in Uli by dusk. During the inbound flight, Gil lost the radio and beacon system and in the dark he got lost and didn’t find the course to Uli and had to bailout in enemy territory. He was arrested for five years in Lagos. I landed in Uli and a little later Pignattely did the same. Next day, we took the planes to Uga, an airstrip in Akokwa.

How was it like being in Biafra at the time of the conflict?

I was living with Pignatettely and two Portuguese engineers, in a good house in Akokwa. We had a chef and a guard that was also the driver of our old Peugeot 403. Johny Chukwukadibie was the liaison officer with the headquarters. Everything was camouflaged and we had also a bunker to protect ourselves of the Nigerians air raids. The food had little variety, always chicken, cassava and sweet potatoes. Not bad, considering the situation.

How did you see the behaviour of the Igbo?

Well, on May the 30, 1967, was read the declaration for the creation of the Republic of Biafra. Due to the genocide murder of Eastern Nigerians, civilians, they had to seek a safe place to live; so, they declared independence. The civil war was declared by Nigeria and had the world powers, British and Russians on her side. Some say two million people, mostly Igbo lost their lives. Four countries recognised our independence and others, like Portugal and France, had a very important role in supporting Biafra.

Do you think the Declaration of a sovereign state of Biafra by Ojukwu needful at the time?

Well, I was saying, two million people, mostly Igbo, lost their lives. The world recoiled in horror as images reached news network. It was genocide, no more no less, genocide. For me, Emeka Ojukwu was a legendary freedom fighter. He did the right thing. With very little outside support the Biafrans put up a fierce resistance that lasted for 30 months before collapsing in January 10, 1970. I have with me the Ahiria declaration, still regarded by some as a possible blue print for every modern African country. He will never be forgotten; believe me.

Can you remember war songs that Biafrans soldiers sang to ginger themselves on?

I remember the songs, usually war songs. Near Christmas in 1969, I was only with one T6G operational; Pignatelly went to Abidjan to bring the other one we left there. Gen Godwin Ezeillo sent for me. Federal troops, more than one division and heavily armed, were about to cross the Imo River and Owerri will be in danger. We had to try to stop them. To attack a concentration of troops with a single airplane was not an easy task. I knew they were south of the river but not their exact position. I did the approach early in the morning leaving the River in my right wing, flying 500 feet above the ground and nobody opened fire against me. I made a large turn by the left, over flying our Army and made another approach to the river. This time, they started shooting from the south side of the river, thousand of tracers were flying in my direction, but now I knew where my target was. I just dive to the target, gaining speed. I heard some lucky shots hitting the airplane and as close as I was to the ground I was able to see trucks and armoured cars below the trees and plenty soldiers running around, looking for cover. I fired every thing I had and escape at a very low altitude to our side, that I overflew again, waving good-bye to our Army.

In the other day, lunch time, Johny Chukwukadibie came to my place with a young Captain that was in the frontline during the attack at the Imo River. He said the attack was terrific and a success. They heard the federal troops weeping a lot on the radio. Next day, we went with him to frontline to cheer up his men. It was here, near the enemy line, in the Imo River that I heard war songs from the Biafran soldiers.

What about the Port Harcourt attack in 1969?

I still remember this very well. It was my 5th mission and we had been expecting anxiously information that MIGs landed and parked in Port Harcourt. I was with Pignattely flying the T6s. We got the order in the afternoon before and at sun rise the airplanes were fully armed with the usual four machine guns and 12, 68mm rockets. There was some light fog touching the ground when we were airborne. There were no reports of MIGs in the air. We knew that we were going to face the strongest anti-aircraft fire, south of Ecuador. The surprise factor was essential and will be a hit and run attack. We only could afford one pass. I was flying a little higher than Pignattely that was at treetop level. Flying higher, I was safer from the light machine guns because my plane was far and more difficult to be hit. I had better visibility ahead and I was able to gain speed during the dive to the target. This was the strategy used by us before.

Port Harcourt was very close and we were approaching the air base with the very shy sun in our back. I saw the huge runway, four MIGs in the parking area, the terminal, hangars, control tower and another plane also parked near the terminal. I shouted to Pignattely, ‘MIGs in the tarmac’ and I started the diving to the target. At this time, tracers and explosions were every where. By instinct, I curled up inside the cockpit, full boost in the engine, nose down gaining speed, MIGs well centred, wings levelled and I start firing the rockets and machine guns burst at the same time. I was seeing my rockets hit around the parked MIGs. It seems nothing was happening and suddenly flames and black smoke erupted from the aircraft. I made the flight straight ahead to the sea, took a better sitting position, reduced the boost of the aircraft and looked back to Port Harcourt and behind me trying to spot Pignatelly. Port Harcourt was on fire and smoke and the Pignatelly T6 was surrounded by anti-aircraft explosions. I thought to my self he was in deep trouble. It was time to relax and return. I did a long turn by sea, eyes wide open looking for MIGs in the sky; did the course inbound by the Niger Delta, followed the river for a while ad landed in Uga.  Pignattely airplane was already landed and camouflaged. Result, three MIGs destroyed, a four-engine aircraft also damaged, including fuel station, terminal building and control tower.

Two or three months ago, I received via Facebook a very interesting article from a veteran Russian pilot in Afghanistan. The article was from a Veteran Russia Air Force Magazine and was about the MIG17 in the Nigeria-Biafra war. These MIG17 in Port Harcourt were flown by British pilots and confirmed the destruction of two and severely damaged of other one. The fourth in line was not a MIG-17 but a Ylushin that was also hit. They decided to paint the MIGs in camouflaged colours and build defensive rackets to protect the planes on ground. There is also a book named Shadows, by Michel I. Drapper, with very interesting articles, real ones, about the air war and airlift in Biafra from 1967/1970.

What does a Biafran airstrip look like and what were the dangers of flying?

The Biafran airstrips were not new to me. Comparing with the Minicons I needed more length for take off and land with the T6Gs. Uga was an ex-asphalt road in pretty good conditions. We had lights, goose necks, for landing at night. We also had a bush in the top of the runway, where we hide the planes. The danger of flying was like David against Golias. The planes were old but well restored to flight conditions. We made the test-flights in Portugal and later in Bissau. We all had large experience in Africa and the big problem were the radio and navigation aids, starting with a simple compass. When we started the operations, our primary targets were federal troop concentration in the northern front, north of Onitsha road and the southern front, south of Owerri and in support of Biafran Army. Air bases and oil installations also become the focus of several attacks. But we were always expecting information from our Army Intelligence in order to know for sure where the MIG17 were. We could reach them in Port Harcourt, Benin and Enugu. Lagos was out of range and also Kano.

When did you leave Biafra and how?

Gen Godwin Ezeillo visited me after lunch time in January 8, 1970 and very quietly announced the imminent departure of our Biafran leader and said that was the right time for me to leave Biafra as well. There was a government flight to Sao Tome at night and a place for me was arranged. I was at the time with the other Igbo pilots and we tried to reach Uli but gave up. The road was so overcrowded that we decided to turn back and prepare the only operational T6 to escape early in the morning to Libreville. I had the black seat available and the other pilots decided that Larry Obiechi was the guy to escape with me. Larry was not Igbo, so they decided it was not safe for him to stay. The others were willing to remain inside Biafra and take a chance on being captured by federal forces.  We were airborne very early with the tanks full. We made a fantastic flight to Libreville, Gabon, keeping the shoreline always in sight. After we landed in Libreville, we were very welcomed, but I had with me a very dip sense of loss.

What do you think of Nigeria today?

Living outside I’m used only to bad news from Nigeria, about old politicians and corruption. They must bury their heads in shame and allow the younger generation to take the driver’s seat. For example: they created Boko Haram and now the same people want to sit down and found solutions to the problem. Who gives a damn for what they think? They should quietly retire to their homes and wait for their turn to die giving a chance to a younger generation to take the leadership. I would love to have written something like this, but I didn’t. I want to live to hug all my mates in Biafra Air Force wishing they are in good health and I pray to God to take care of them. Rest in peace Ibi Brown and Alex Agbafuna, killed in combat fighting for his people. Thanks Gil Pinto de Sousa for the five years you gave, for supporting a cause in which you believe. My thanks to Sammy, Willy Bruce, August Opke and Larry Obiechi for the support you gave me in the last days of our dream.

During the Nigerian war, there was the feat of converting the B26 aircraft into a fighter jet or bomber. Were you part of this feat?

I did not fly the B26

How were you able to manipulate the aircraft, knowing that it wasn’t originally meant for what it was converted to?

In October 1967, we had two B25 Mitchel in Port Harcourt and both were effectively lost during one night sortie some two months later.  The B26 started service at the end of June 1967 and was in Enugu for repainting, in camouflage colours. The Biafran national flag was on both sides of the rudder. At the same time of repainting our mechanics began to instal rather crude weapons. They modified the nose cone of the aircraft and mounted a single tripod-mounted machine gun inside. The gun was never linked to the electrical wiring system and was operated blindly by the pilot and the gunner.

We operated it thus: One tug meant start fire. Two tugs meant stop. Another gun was fitted to the rear of the bomb bay, which fired downwards through open bay-bomb doors.

What was your relationship with air force officers, like Gibson Nwosu and the late Chudi Sokei?

I only remember Gen Godwin Ezeilo, my Biafran Air Force Commander. After the war, he was with Capt Manuel Reis, Biafran Airlift Capt in Angola. We have been together a few times.

      • Ndem Okon December 8, 2012 at 9:49 pm

        Oh Haruna Sako! You have shown yourself to be a true and committed boko haram. You derive satisfaction by killing fellow human beings without an iota of compunction while at the same time you pray to Allah five times a day. You even tell the world your religion is of peace. Haruna, what is your definition of peace. I’m afraid, either something is wrong with Haruna Sako, or Allah, or religion of peace, or the three. Before you label me an Igbo, note that I am not an Igbo person. Haruna, something is certainly wrong with you.

    The blood of the lost souls during the crisis were in the hands of the Lord. For the living, we pray that God will bless them. Now the war is over, let us move on

I shared tears as I read the account of a foreigner who saw it live the injustice done us. Arthur may God bless you. The truth is being revealed from a foreigner. Nigeria wil neva know peace until Biafrans are allowed to go. One day, the Biafran flag wil be hoisted. Those who thought the war was a joke have seen it. It is real. Britain and Gowon killed Igbos!

    The whites has always be thorn on Nigeria flesh from pre, during and post colonial. The Potuguese pilot never bothered to state how many tonnes of oil he was/ will be compesated with he fights for him. If not why was he unhappy when he heard that the warlord (Ojukwu) has absconded. Or did he dicey his life for Ojukwu because genocide were committed against the Igbos. Idiotic!

  25. Ejike Rex December 8, 2012 at 9:03 am

    Thanks and God bless. I just hope the mass Murderers will read this. Of a truth Biafra is in exile and wil sooner or later land, its not dead. Its not a matter of argument nor is it time for sentimental bushits.
    God was indeed wt Biafrans they never lost a WAR and will never do just like Isreal. Biafra only lost the BATTLE and not the WAR even when all nations including the cabals Britain & Russia supported Nigeria wt all their talents, techniques, arms and cash.
    I quote from Ezeigbo gburugburu, “the first time Nigeria provoked Biafrans to take up arm, it wasn’t easy 4 Nigeria. If Nigeria provokes Biafrans to take up arm again(bt God 4bid) anyday, Nigeria wil not live to tel it”.
    Igbo’s silence and their choice of peace to reign is not weakness, nor does weakness mean fragility. Longlive Biafra.

  26. Tsohodut December 8, 2012 at 9:11 am

    I expect this pilot to tell us why did civil war happens not how it happen bcos knowing why it occurred can today help Nigerians to understand where we are from, while knowing how it happens can only worsen our diversity impediments.

  27. Tagbo December 8, 2012 at 9:27 am

    May God bless Artur dearly for an interview like this one.No matter how long it takes,truth will be known and those behind the pain Igbos surffer in Nigeria during the time they needed to defend themselves against injustice and genocide from Nigeria ns of Hausa and Yeruba extraction will never know peace till they all come together and confess and make a reasonable restitution for their evil.Amen.They can only run but can never hide.To Queen of England and her co-horts world over.Our infinite God in his infinite powers will purnish her unless she sets Nigeria and Igbos free.The pains we surffer as a people and the politics they played with our destiny will never go unpurnished in their families till the end of time.Nigeria is a nation founded on lies and will never prosper till those lies are addressed honestly.Let those who put the lies together go on and live on it,it is only a matter of time.

  28. prince December 8, 2012 at 9:35 am

    may the world see why nigerian will never stand , for reall igbos need to go on their own

  29. Frank December 8, 2012 at 10:21 am

    Starvation as war tools against Ibos with heavy supports from Bristish n Russian on nigerian side cannot stagnate Biafran revolution. Boko haram insurgencies is aggravating with many southerners slaughtered and killed in a cold blood, whereas their pioneers were busy crying loudly over 2015 northern presidency. To Hell with Nigeria. Long live one south !!!!! Long live Biafra!!!!! Long Live Land of Rising Sun !!!!!.

    No go things will come from Haus/Fulani.It is a pity that Yoruba played the role of cameleon by joining Hausa to kill their fellow Southerner during the civil war. They can as well join Hausa/fulani in their Boko Haram

    • Uyome December 8, 2012 at 12:24 pm

      Who knows if they are not among? See how the Yorubas sold Illorin to Hausa/ Fulani and now the ABOKIS has instituted an EMIR as the King of ILLORIN in Yoruba land. Oh!, What a stupidity

  35. kola amodu December 8, 2012 at 11:39 am

    U nigerian jews are very stupid if u think Mr.A Laves is ur hero. He did nothing special during Nigeria civil war, why cos de liks of Alves are war mercenary. He was paid to do a job n that was what he did. Why didn’t u fools ask urselves one question, why did he do what he claimed he did. De answer is this, he was paid, two, if Biafran wins he would have been made a very generous compensation( lifting south south oil) three did he do this for humanitarin reason ? No all is for monetry gain . De likes of Alves are no heros, they are criminals who like to creates hardship for people. What happened to him after Biafran lost de war?, he left unnoticed n who paid for his bombing? U n i. Why can’t u nigerian jews think for once. U proclaimed to be wise n intelligent, but i canot see any of that quality in here. All what u’re doing is, falling on each other to praise Mr.A Alves. U never for once ask de question what if de bombs Alves droped had fallen on u jews, if that had been proved would u still call him a hero, his like are irrelevant to de history of de war in this country. If u call Alves a hero, then i will assume u ‘re more stupid than i thought. Wake up jews in war everybody loose, de only people that gain are de people that sell u de weapons for killing ur own people. De plane Alves piloted during de war, who supplied them? France n Portugal. Can u now see my point. Nigerian jews wake up.

    • Onyi Onwuta December 8, 2012 at 2:19 pm

      And who supplied the planes used by nigerians? Nigerians or UK? U moron. I hate to write things like this but you have just touched my nerve. I was on 7 years when the war started. My father, who worked with ACB as a Manager drove us home in his peugeot 403 his number plate was LG144 to the east with my elder sister and brother. On the way towards ore, Nigerian soldiers stopped many vehicles, 911, buses and cars. They ordered the occupants Easterners heading home out of their vehicles and slaughtered them some in our presence. We were saved by my fathers friend known to us as Jack from Onitsha, because he spoke housa, yoruba, igbo, efik and benin. He was very busy speaking and buying our pass to life from the hands of nigerian soldiers.

      Even Alves was paid, Awo and his cronies plus generals had a big wish to wipe the Easterners off by starvation. I was there in Biafra. So keep quite and pray we dont get down to war again in Nigeria you will not like it because, that will be a different kind of war unlike the first.

      In Umuleri, i remembered seeing a captured white guy, whom i believed was a nigerian pilot. His plane finished air attack on the town about 2 hours later he appeared with crowd dragging him to the village square. They were beating him and cursing. So many were dead during the air raid. The Biafran soldiers may have shot him down before he could escape. Was he not paid to fly his sorties to Biafra? Was he there for hunting? Nigeria is coming up for a big show down. I hope 2015 will not be the D day.

      Gowon is a WOLF in SHEEP Clothing. You can imagine Gowon saying that he will stand against any Biafrans that will challenge him in the International Court Of Justice in the Hague. The BIG EMPTY FOOL even went forth to say that he killed the Igbos and has no apology to them. imagine a repented Christian!

  37. The insider December 8, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Biafrans should always remember this man,even after the war he is still showing concern by following the events of Nigerian state with compassion for the oppressed.Infact this man is a humanitarian.
    But we should note that Nigeria must remain in political,social and economic wilderness except the BIAFRANS are allowed to go their separate way.

    • Emeka December 8, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    A Portuguese was contracted to come and bomb fellow Nigerians and he is being commended for a job well done and his commitment, yet Awolowo and Gowon are being persecuted for trying to prevent a breakup. I think The Sun News should show a little patriotism at the present stage of our existence. We don’t have to continue to fan the ember of disunity.

    • Gadia December 8, 2012 at 12:38 pm

      The dog called awolowo and the other dog called gowon. There was an Aburi Accord, motayo oyeyipo. What do you mean by a breakup, when you people couldn’t honor an accord? We don’t want to be with you people in the same country. We re not the same. So you don’t want the nigerian evil history told the coming generations?

    • Onyi Onwuta December 8, 2012 at 2:37 pm

      Awo and Gowon was preventing a breakup, in the process killed the all the innocent. Why cant nigeria break up now? Infact Nigeria is already broken up dim wit incase u haven’t noticed

That Gang Up With Nigeria To Stop Biafra Freedom This Time Will Die With Nigeria And Their Evil In Jesus Name.

  49. Sab Chux December 8, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    Now i know better. I never believed that Nigerian govt under Gen Gowon started that avoidable and senseless war. Why did Nig govt under Gowon hate Igbos so much? What was our offense? Infact if the federal govt did not apologise to Biafrans for the genocide it caused in Igboland during the 30 months civil war then they will never know peace. Nigeria will continue to be directionless and vissionless forever. The only way God will forgive Nigeria is to allow a president of Igbo extraction to preside of the nation’s affairs in 2019 then and only then shall peace restored in the land. The South East governors must find a way to immortalise those foreigners that assisted the Igbos during our trying period.

    • Goldspring2001 December 9, 2012 at 3:26 am

      Mr. Sab I am sure you are not an Ibo man because if you
      are you will not be making your ridiculous demand — we
      Ibos want our independence .What Nigeria and britain wanted was the oil . I pray Britain tries the gimmick they
      did in Nigeria in Ghana and Angola. I am sure with the
      truth coming out ,it will not be long before America calls
      for the truth like they did in Sudan and after that independence.

  52. Nduka Felix mobolaji uzuh December 8, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    @Omotayo oyeyipo, if you say that mister Arthur elves was contracted to kill nigerians. What will you then say about those gowon and awolowo contracted to bomb refugee camps, hospitals, farmlands, civilian populations durring the war. Britain sponsored the genocide that was perpetrated on biafrans, and gowon and awolowo executed it. That’s why gowon has boasted, that he should be charged to the ICC, cus he knows that if he is charged to the ICC, HE’D never be found giulty, because he has Britain on his side. Anybody who says there was no genocide, is a manipulator of history. And hisTory will never forgive anybody who manipulates it. The pogrom and all the crisis bedeviling nigeria, was settled in aburri Ghana, with gowon being a signatory to it. But on his arrival to nigeria, he was advised by awolowo to discard it, and not implement it. This action taken by gowon, was what made ojukwu to declare biafrans independence.
    Gowon even went further to create states, which was a breach of the aburri agreement. To show that ojukwu was a leader who saw the future, today yorubas and hausas, are calling for the return to regional system of government which they had earlier supported its abolishment. Mr Arthur elves those you risked your life for cherishes the value of the sacrifice you made for them. Long live biafra, and the memories of her heroes struggles. AMEN

    Dear Arthur Alves, I’m here to say thanks again to you for all your humanitarian supports to us Biafrans during the war and your unshakable faith towards the realization of Biafran nation of which you wholeheartedly stand on as you always told me on other social and communication networks.
    May God bless you and guide you, your families as we continue to support a true course of the people.
    I also at this forum, call on radio Biafra and Bilie human right initiative to build a synergy with our Biafran veteran Arthur A by visiting him in Portugal and share more life experiences of Britain,Russia,Nigeria,Egypt, etc genocide against the people and future generations of Biafrans massacred by Evil gowon and his world powers supporters.
    And for you saboteurs (mainly Yoruba’s), Arthur A. have always been in constant communications with Igbo’s(Biafrans) and he is one of the earlier commentator’s on cnn during the demise of Our GREAT HERO IKEMBA DIM ODUMEGWU OJUKWU…!

With due respect i wnt to ask did you read the article at all or smbdy told you wat they are posting for? Was it only oncs that Artur made mension of such? Abt 2 or more. Maybe u need to go back and read again. Its so concise and complete.

    @Kola Amodu and your likes, even if Artur is paid to do what he did, He is a brave hero 2 ve done his job well. By the way was it Artur that told you he left unoticed or Awo or Gowon? Again the Britain, Russia etc that fought for Nigeria, are they not the ones milking Nigeria dry today? Answer me when you finish mealy-mouthing. You wil never like him bcos you never liked anything good other than mass killers. But this time around you wil fall a victim if u dnt take care and watch what you say. The evil that men do leaves after them unless you singlehandedly repent. I can see the land of the rising sun returning from exile.

Mr Artur Alves, may your years be prolonge in Jesus name for you to reveal the secretes when it is highly needed,I hope the supporters of Awolowo& Gen Gowon whose reply to Achebes Memo’s was shown the level of their hatred towards the Biafrans. Gen gowon had the impunity to say that he & Awolowo were justifies over their action to massaccer & starved the Biafrans. I thank GOD that Biafran’s did not declear war against Nigeria rather Nigeria Govt led by Gen Gowon & Awolowo who was released from prison decleared war against the Biafrans, this was as a result of their SELF DETERMINATION ON UN CHARTER ON HUMAN RIGHT ON SELF DETERMINATION & sovereinty of man. Long live Biafras! Long live Biafrans!! Long live the memory of Biafran’s freedom fighter & the pple’s Gen DIM CHUKWU EMEKA ODUMEGWU (OJUKWU( Ezigbo gburugburu 1) we can never forget the role you play to solvage your pple from EVIL shacles of Gowon or Awolowo to exist.

    ”Pastor” Gowon and Chief Betrayer Awolowo were fíghting to keep Nigeria one? And Britain and Russia their friends-in-arms? Igbos, leave the North and their Boko Haram. Boko Haram is a harvest of Nigeria’s wickedness to Igbos. Boko Haram is fighting for a natural boundary like Biafra did. The greatest is yet to come. For the Yorubas, they have always been slaves to the North. They are known for their words and inaction. Let the Hausas/Fulanis take over their wives and property even in Lagos like Benhadad of Syria threatened Ahab in the book of 1kings 20. Fulani cattle rearers had started already; Boko Haram will follow suit. Yorubas have no oil, no strength, no will, no phìlosophy. They thrive by prostitution, treachery, words and deceit. The British never forgave the Igbos for the failure of their slavery (indirect rule) of 1900 in Eastern Nigeria. They were and are not happy that Igbos are naturally organised. Bravo Our Legendary Pilot!

But in case u don’t know, he is also a mercenary who led about ten other mecenary to Equtorial Guinean i order to overthrow de govt. He was caught n sent to prison . So that is what merenary does for living. If u foolish nigerian can now turn round n start making Alves ur hero then u’re really doom. I never for once believe. That a day will come when my fellow country men n women will call some body who was paid to kill their fellow citizens a hero. Can’t u see that u are really embrassing de rest of decent Nigerians. In fact ur attitude is becoming unbecoming. Ur race proclaimed to be wise n intelligent but u’ve all failed demonstrate any characteristic of that.

If ur senators are honourables are honourable enough, they will do what u ask them to do. But one thing i know about u jews, u will sell ur mother for money, i know ur people will compromise cos u like to eat crumbles from tables of anybody that will give kickback.

We have subtly, severally and in many writings and languages asked them to go home and wait for their last days, but they have refused to hid.

    Over to u charles maggot, i was told u are married to ur mother n that ur mother had a baby girl for u n that girl travelled to Italy to work. What kind of work can igbo bastard do in Rome,Naples n Milano? I know de answer, “asewo” whoring even inside Nigeria jews criminal activities know no limit. How can u married to ur own mother? Do u really enjoy sticking it to her? Ur own mother!!! U must be really sick. By de way, i heard ur huncback daughter is back home, after her deportation, do u know she one of de affected ones. She tested positive to u know what? “AID” pls do not let her out of her confirment. Fuck u all, onye ara.

    “Conscience is an open wound and only truth can heal it” What an insight! I hope many are just hearing this revelation for the first time from a foreigner. It has indeed vindicated Prof. Chinua Abeche in his book: There was a country. I believe more are still to come

    i thank God for the life of all the french,portuguese,Israelli merceneries that fought and died for worthy course -BIAFRA,the Land of God,we will never forget you and your supreme sacrifice.I thank God for our Fathers and Brothers who are matyrs of the Biafran sturggle,one assurance is that the noble struggle they fought and died for will never be abandoned till it is achieved by us or our children.BIAFRA is for us a task that must be accomplished inspite of the cost.We are working on this God given project and are ready for the price of supreme sacrifice.
    Our people msut remember the names of these heroes viz;- Manuel Reis,Godwing Ezeillo,Gil Pinto de Sousa,Pignattely,we need to imortalise them in our own way if our cowardly Governors refused to name streets and state monuments after them,we can name our country homes and Town Villas after these people.

    Gadia how did u know for a fact that de bombs ur hero Alves dropped did not kill a relative of Mr Titus.did ur dead father or huncback mother told u so? U’re a pathetic set of people . Anytime somebody.m say something that is not in support of ur believe, i want to tell u jews onething , even if u get ur biafra, what will be de end result, cos i know u will end up destroy. U got my urself. It is in jews blood to be self centre n any race that thinks n act that way is head for serious problem. Gadia u better keep ur stinking mouth shut cos most of what u claimed to know are trash. U claim south east. Has more oil than any region is not true or is it?. I can bet my life on it that u jews base ur believe on de understanding that south south will follow u on ur sucide mission, but they will not. They do not want anybody to dominate them. They will rather be alone. Once u’re carved out of nigeria,u will be alone n nigeria will move forward wihout u . Yorubas wish u happy journey on ur biafra. Onye ara.

  88. kola amodu December 9, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    Maybe u should name ur country republic of arthur alves when u get ur separate country. In appreciation of his contribution to ur cause.. Keep on dreaming, useless set of people.

    • Chris December 9, 2012 at 5:22 pm

      Yes, while yo call your Oduduwa the Republic of Gowon. BASTARD Yoruba man !!!.

  89. Chris December 9, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Mr Arthur, Thank you. for your assistance to people in trouble from all sides – USA, Britain, Russia, Egypt and all the Arab world. You and your generation shall find helpers in time of need. God Bless you.

  90. Chris December 9, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    Every Ibo man, woman, Boy and Girl should read this. I was 13years during the civil war and I understand what Mr Arthur is saying. That, they bombed military targets was quite okay., but the Nigerian Air force was bombing every living and non living things. Even on sighting goats they will bomb. This so called Nigerians wanted to exterminate the Ibos. Thank God He preserved us.

  91. Thompson-luanda December 9, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Thank you Arthur Alves for all your contributions during the war. We the Biafrans love you.

  92. cliffo December 15, 2012 at 2:01 am

    Please tell us more

  93. Abdallah December 15, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    A brilliant post here..well done mr Alves..from the detailed narrative..I want to agree this guy is genuine..every human being is entitled to his opinions and convictions..if mr Alves wanted to fight for the Biafrans so be it…he seems a rare good mercenary if we have something like that. Time to rebuild this country and move on..the igbos can feel aggrieved…let us understand them..but my Igbo friends look very well and understand that all sides have grievances. Enough of these hate mails..even if the country breaks up..we have to live as neighbors..I greet una all

    @Kola Amodu.. Why are you so hurt that Mr . Alves told his own side of the story? even if he was paid todo the job he did, is it not honorable for him to speak the truth ?. This was a war situation like in so many situations you would need someone to do some jobs for you and in his situation he had the connection to be part of this history , Now be very objective and rational, is it wrong for people to be sentimental here , as sentimental as you are with the mention of your nation or family so also people of the Biafran extract are because some of them actually had their lives altered by this history of war. So i say to you do not fight a man who is fighting for what he love because love is so violent when it becomes personal… Long live Biafra..
