  • Description

    The Nigerian Head of State, Major-General Yakubu Gowon, called upon the emergency meeting of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) Council of Ministers which opened in Lagos yesterday (December 9), to provide immediate and practical answers to threats of foreign aggression in Africa.

    The OAU meeting opened less than 24 hours after the United Nations Security Council held Portugal fully responsible for the attacks on Guinea and demanded full compensation to the Conakry Government for extensive damage to life and property. Portugal has repeatedly denied involvement in the invasion.

    Before opening the session, General Gowon and the OAU Secretary-General Diallo Telli inspected weapons captured in the fighting in Guinea last month.
