Nigeria-Biafra War: Moment Gowon was ambushed to speak in Hausa (VIDEO)

A video currently circulating on the Internet has shown how former military Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, was ambushed and asked to speak in Hausa when he wanted to talk about the Nigeria-Biafra Civil War.

“Wait a minute, who told you I am going to do it in Hausa? Oh my goodness, look, for almost 80 years, I have been always speaking mostly in English… This is an ambush. This is a coup. No, No…. My Hausa is not good enough to say it in Hausa,” Gowon objected.

Gowon was addressing newsmen after he visited President Bola Tinubu at the State House in Abuja on Wednesday.

The former military ruler told Tinubu not to be worried about the criticisms of Nigerians on his performance since he assumed office in May 2023.

“At least, if I remember, I was told that I was too slow, fighting the war and that probably Nigeria would not make it and that we should seek for discussion. Well, did we do it or not? They probably did not know the problem on the ground there,” he said.
