87th birthday of Richard Ihetu, aka Dick Tiger

(Born 14 August 1929, Ubahu, Biafra)
Illustrious world middleweight and light-heavyweight boxing champion of the mid-1960s, Biafran ambassadeur extraordinaire during the Igbo genocide perpetrated by Nigeria and Britain, 29 May 1966-12 January 1970, when 3.1 million Igbo or one-quarter of this nation’s population are slaughtered, proclaims solemnly to the world at the time: “Without Biafra, the championship title is no good to me. Without Biafra, my title is nothing”
