Victor Banjo is the tragic account of a Nigerian military officer who was caught in the crises that engulfed Nigeria following the first military coup of January 15th, 1966. The man, Victor Banjo, would eventually find himself in Eastern Nigeria during the Nigerian civil war. He sought to bring a quick end to the war and to reduce the loss of lives to a minimum. In the process, his own life was cut short. September 24, 2017 marked fifty years since the untimely death of Victor Banjo. This book tells the story of the final twenty months of the life of this gallant officer and recalls the ideals he lived for. Fifty years on, those ideals still beckon. In the heat of several issues that confront present day Nigeria – a generation that knows little about the travails of the past – those ideals are a likely solution. Victor Banjo provides a correct reading of the Nigerian story and holds out a hope for the purging of souls and the healing of the wounds of history.
