MovieTone video on the Biafra Surrender to Nigeria

Published by the British Movietone, this short documentary details the Republic of Biafra surrender to Nigeria on January 15, 1970, “after a two-and-a-half-year-long war that caused one million deaths, many due to starvation that resulted from a blockade of the region by the Nigerian government.”
