Description DM2011060190:NIGED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:NOV 1962 – Lagos Gives Awolowo A Hero’s Welcome – Lagos showed Chief Obafemi Awolowo where he stood when he came to the city to testify at the Coker Commission. Chief Obafemi Awolowo leader of the Action Group, was given a hero’s welcome by supporters of the Action Group when, still under restriction he arrived in Lagos on July 22 to defend himself before the Coker Commission inquiring into the affairs of six statutory corporations of the suspended government of Western Nigeria. It was quite a crowd that came forth to welcome Chief Awolowo. Not even Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, in his political days, could have drawn more supporters. (Photograph by Drum Photographer ©BAHA)
