Description DM2011060137:NIGED:POLITICS:WAR:OCT 1969 – It All Began Like A Bad Dream – Tragedy of War – Biafran Soldiers of War arriving in Lagos. Nelson Ottah was the editor of Drum until February 1967 when he got the “fever” and joined the exodus of Ibos to the Eastern Region. For over two years he was in the thick of it all, as a functionary in Ojukwu’s propaganda directorate. He was part of it. He saw the early fever, the epidemic nature of it. He saw the waste of life, the starvation, the frustration, the hopelessness of a shattered illusion. Nelson Ottah says this should not and ought not have been. (Photograph by Drum Photographer ©BAHA)
