Ten TE MIHIGANDAIL

Hunger, rape,
t ievery face
former Biafrans
LAGOS, Nigeria (}P)-A young
Ibo returning to Lagos was sur-
prised to find it still standing.
His friends were astonished to
see him alive.
With the 30-month war over,
reality is surfacing again in!
Nigeria.}
Leaders in Lagos try desper-
ately; for smooth reconciliations,
but ugly realities mar the pic-
ture.
If some soldiers work unself-
ishly to feed their countrymen,
cgthers steal their last cooking
pot. If some give them cloth-
ing, others rape their women-
folk./
A British mission appointed
b' Prime Minister Harold Wil-:
son deplored what it called the
i.ndiscipline and misconduct of
Nigerian soldiers "flushed with
vict'try" in the former Biafran
enclave.
The report of thae mission
headed by Lord Hunt said, how-
ever, that the over-all relief
situation, while unsatisfactory,
was not as serious as earlier re-
ports had suggested.
Serious efforts apparently are
beingsmade to rectify the
wrongs:
First Division troops were re-
ported moving into the Orlu
area and pushing southwai d as
the 3rd Division pulled back to
its headquarters in Port Har-
court. It was the 3rd that knifed
through Biafran defenses tot
Owerri a couple of weeks ago to
crumble final resistance.
For some, forgetting the war
chants aginst the Biafrans
that echoed hour after hour on
the radio will not be easy.
'Others fear for their jobs,
figiring the federal government
in its haste to reinstate the
Ibos will shunt them aside.
Before secession, the Ibos
were the leading tribe in the
country holding the best gov-
ernment jobs.
Maj. Gen. Yakubu Gowon,
the 35-year-old head of state
who is committed to mending
the breach told critical journal-
ists last week: "Don't expect
miracles. We are doing our
best." The relief effort which
Gowon insisted was "progress-
ing satisfactorily" seemed to be
straining against an insur-
mountable tide.
The means were there,. but it
took time mobilizing them, when
time itself was a life or death
matter. An overworked band of
Nigerian Red Cross workers,
counting 110 expatriates strug-
led- with ever increasing Ines
of refugees coming out of the
bush, as rival coordinators in
Lagos jockeyed for position.
By the time the government
had named an experienced civil'
servant, says Allison Ayida. per-
manent secretary of the eco-
nomic development ministry,
babies were dying unattended.
F o r e i g n governments and
agencies dispatched cables offer-
ing everything from a boatload
of -Argentine wheat to Ameri-
can portable hospitals.?
Again, the government took
its time, brushing aside help
from countries and agencies it
accused of prolonging the rebel-
lion by helping the other side.
someone asked Gowon if 'he

would accent he h from Joint
Church Aid (JCA) which defied
federal orders and nirlifted re-
lief supplies to Biafra.
"Let them keep their blood
money," he snapped. "We don't
want their help or assistance.,
.We will do it ourselves."
Later, Gowon called upon
friends for ai . r1 nnin praise
froe hiscritics for ptting his
people's nreeds above zpride.
