Description

As the Igbo plan to gather in all corners of the Earth for the New Yam festivals during the month of August, one of the most charismatic sons of the land prepares to make a special, sacred offering of his own: An autobiography like no other.

As the drums of war boomed eerily in 1967, MAC Odu, a young, fearless, and adventurous university student volunteered for what became the Suicide Squad of Biafra. Soon, a Nigerian Airways aircraft, which departed on a regularly scheduled flight from Benin to Lagos, involuntarily found its way to Enugu, the capital city of a new nation that Chinua Achebe told us existed. Odu was one of the young men who hijacked the plane as part of preparations for the fortification and defense of the short-lived Republic of Biafra.

In this autobiography Odu uses “Hell” as metaphor for the difficulties and challenges he has encountered, while “Spring” represents his triumphs and the opportunities that have come his way. He has played roles and observed the roles of others in the developmental politics of Africa, with particular experience in Nigeria.
