THE ASABA MASSACRE OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS BY THE NIGERIANS:
The Federal troops entered Asaba around October 5, 1967 and began ransacking houses and killing civilians, claiming they were Biafran sympathisers.
Asaba leaders summoned the townspeople to assemble on the morning of October 7, hoping to end the violence through a show of support for "One Nigeria."
Hundreds of men, women, and children, many wearing the ceremonial akwa ocha (white) attire paraded along the main street, singing, dancing, and chanting "One Nigeria."
At a junction, men and teenage boys were separated from women and young children, and gathered in an open square at Ogbe-Osowa village.
Federal troops revealed machine guns, and orders were given, reportedly by Second-in-Comma
The bodies of some victims were retrieved by family members and buried at home. But most were buried in mass graves without appropriate ceremony.
Many extended families lost dozens of men and boys. Federal troops occupied Asaba for many months, during which time most of the town was destroyed, many women and girls were raped or forcibly "married," and large numbers of citizens fled, often not returning until the war ended in 1970.
While there are no eye-witness reports of Murtala Muhammed ordering the killings, he was the Commander in the field, and thus must bear responsibility.
Both Ibrahim Taiwo and Murtala Mohammed were killed in a rain of bullets on the same day, 13th February 1976 by Buka Suka Dimka and Co.
