Chief Obafemi Awolowo during the Biafra-Nigeria war orchestrated an old maxim-All Is Fair In War And Love – adding the hardy Awolowo blend – Starvation is a legitimate weapon of warfare! What Chief Awolowo meant was that in war, no weapon is considered dangerous. The title of this article and what follows immediately have been chosen to put the whirling controversy in proper perspective and advert the minds of Dr. (Mrs.) Tokunbo Awolowo-Dosunmu, Femi Fani Kayode, Ebenezer Babatope, the renegade/inconsistent Awoist, Dr. Fasheun and other Awolowo apologists, to the background of the reference Prof. Chinua Achebe made to Chief Awolowo in his new book: There was a Country: A Personal History of Biafra which they found ‘disappointing, nonsensical, a twist of facts and a murder of history’. From what she said, it is likely that Dr. Mrs. Awolowo-Dosunmu has read Achebe’s book, while Babatope was belching fire out of manifest ignorance since he said, “Nigerians should expect detailed, honest, factual and objective replies to the Achebe nonsense after we have copies of the book in our hands.” I, also, have not read Achebe’s new book. I will, therefore, base my contribution on what the Sun and Vanguard newspapers published.
