Quote Of The Day
“It was unity we wanted, not rebellion. We had watched our leaders rape our country. The country was so diseased that bold reforms were badly needed to settle social, moral, economic and political questions. We fully realised that to be caught planning, let alone acting, on our lines, was high treason. And the penalty for high treason is death.”
– Excerpt from manuscript written by Nigeria’s 1952 Commonwealth Games high jump champion Emmanuel Ifeajuna. Ifeajuna was the first black African Commonwealth gold medalist and was celebrated as a national sports hero, but then in 1967 was executed by firing squad for his role in Nigeria’s civil war.
