The name Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu is a popular household name in Nigeria.
The military giant leads the people of the Southeast, Nigeria, in the struggle for a secessionist state called Biafra.
Ojukwu played a vital role in the Nigerian political space. This has made it impossible for you to describe Nigerian history from 1960 to date without mentioning Ojukwu.
He was the leader of the Biafran War between 1967-1970, but he went on exile with his family into Ivory Coast when it was obvious his life was a major target.
Ikemba of Nnewi, as he’s popularly called, was never seen in pictures with Buhari, but he made some moves of reconciliation as soon as he came back from exile.

This picture above was taken in 2003 to protest against the administration of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s government for not being effective. It was a peaceful protest.
When he returned from exile, he visited a few people, including Buhari, and stayed in Daura for two days.
Ojukwu and Buhari contested for president in 2003 under different political parties, but they lost the election.
Twelve years later, Buhari is president, but Ojukwu is late.
