In my opinion, Nigeria made a mistake dismantling Biafra’s military industrial complex after Biafra’s 1970 defeat.
The allies defeated Germany in 1945 but absorbed their scientists into their military industrial complex.
Biafra developed technology that Nigeria could have exploited.
We have issues fighting Boko Haram because we depend on others for weapons.
Biafra was surrounded, yet they made their weapons and refined fuel.
Nigeria is not surrounded, yet we can’t make weapons or refine fuel! We could have been making our own weapons by now.
