Budapest San
Francisco The
War Jazmil Camilo 802 Now, my question for the Nigerian Civil War is what were the causes for it ? I believe that the Nigerian Civil War only had four major causes. One of the causes was the tribal and regional tensions between the three main tribes in Nigeria. The three main tribes were Hausa [North], Igbo [East] and Yoruba [West] . Another one of the causes was Britains's wanting to maintain control over their interests in Nigeria during and dangerous time. Another cause was the discovery of oil in the South-Eastern region of Nigeria and their wanting to suceed in order to maintain control over their reserves. The last major cause was the political crises leading up to the war. In this war,there were children 13 and older being part of the war. This had many death to young children and adults. The total of death during the whole entire war is 1–3 million dead. The Nigerian Civil War was a political conflict caused by the attempted secession of the South Eastern provinces of Nigeria. This conflict was the result of economic, ethnic, cultural and religious tensions among the various peoples of Nigeria. Children and women were dying from hunger.
3,000 to5,000 people died from hunger. The country was divided in such a way that the North had more population than the other two regions combined. The Biafran destroyed many centers and more. The Biafran started from the inside of the Nigerian and then pushes back.
The Nigerian Military forced a two front war to flack Biafran forces. The Nigerian Federal Forces won the war. There were laws stating that political parties could not be ethnically based. Nigerian people celebrated the war ending in Lagos. Resources
http://www.africamasterweb.com/BiafranWarCauses.html The Origin Of The War Seven years after Nigeria gained independence from Britian`s, the war began. The war began on July 6, 1967. Nigerian was a British colony. Lt. Col. Ojukwu and his fellow "Biafrans" declared the Eastern Regions as an independent state of Biafra. By the way, Lt. Col. Ojukwu was the leader of the Biafrans during the war. However, the Federal government in Lagos saw the declare of Lt. Col. Ojukwu and his fellow "Biafrans" as an act of succession. Lt. Col. Ojukwu Who started the war ? There was not a specific person that started the war. Basically, it was the people from Biafrans that started the war. The war was Biafrans vs. all of Nigeria and the government. What started the war? The thing that started the Nigerian Civil War was that the Nigerian government launched a "police action" to retake the territory. Also, I think that the Nigerian people were fighting for their independence. The Biafrans was trying to control them.

Where was the war located? The Nigerian Civil War took place in Nigerian.This country is located in West Africa. The name Nigerian was taken from the Niger River running through the country. When did the Nigerian Civil War take place ? The Nigerian Civil War started on July 6 , 1967. The war ended on January 15, 1970. The war lasted 2 years, 6 months, 1 week and 2 days. Why did the war start? I think the Nigerian Civil War start because the Nigerian people wanted their independence. I think the Nigerian Civil War also started because the Federal government in Lagos took Lt. Col. Ojukwu declare offensive. Stravation The children and adults would have to use things like mines,tanks,grenades, bombs , flame throwers and more. My views on the Nigerian Civil War I believe the war should of have never happened because their were too many deaths. Especially, the children. I still cant believe children had to be in the army and the children had to starve. I have learned a lot from this war.I have learned to be thankful for what I have now.
