In a protest letter sent to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Dr. Francis Akanu Ibiam wrote that he was renouncing all the awards given him by the British Government, because he once believed that the country was propagating the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but did not see reason why the Christian-Britain would support the Muslim-Nigeria, against the Christian-Biafra, during the 1967 war.
Ibiam highlighted in that letter that during the months of May, July, August, and September, 1966, Northern Nigerian soldiers and civilians planned and committed the most atrocious crimes against Eastern Nigerians – now citizens of the Republic of Biafra.
He did not end there, he fumed, saying that sadistically, brutally and in cold blood, they murdered and slaughtered thousands of “my brothers and sisters” who were then living in Northern Nigeria and other parts of the former and defunct Federal Republic of Nigeria.
