He blamed his elders, people of South South and Middle Belt to had joined the war, said it was a wrong decision.

In his words: “The civil war is long over but I am constrained to say that the horrendous events that the Nigerian people have suffered over the last four years have proved that the people of the South West, South South and Middle Belt fought on the WRONG side during that war. History has vindicated the Biafrans.

Femi Fani-Kayode blamed Aguiyi Ironsi to had surrounded himself to northern armies during his coup.

Aguiyi-Ironsi was Nigeria’s military head of state between 17 January 1966 to 29 July 1966, after a coup by group of northern army officers revolted against the government, and he was killed.

Kayode, said Ironsi made a greatest mistake to had surrounded himself to the northern armies during the coup.

His post reads: “The greatest mistake that General Johnson Aguiyi Ironsi made was to surround himself with northern officers in an attempt to appease the north after the faiIure of the Jan.15th 1966 coup.

“Those northern officers waited for 6 months after which they stripped him naked, beat him to a pulp and murdered him in cold blood. They also murdered Colonel Francis Fajuyi who had refused to let them take him.

“After that they went on a 12 hour killing spree and slaughtered no less than 300 Igbo Army officers.
