  • Description

    RUMOURS THAT FORMER BIAFRAN LEADER MAJOR-GENERAL ODUMEGWU OJUKWU MAY HAVE FLED TO PORTUGAL HEIGHTENED THIS WEEK WITH THE DISCOVERY OF HIS PLANE AT LISBON AIRPORT.

    EIGHT DAYS HAVE PASSED SINCE GENERAL OJUKWU'S REPORTED FLIGHT FROM THE BESIEGED ULI AIRSTRIP AND THE MYSTERY AS TO HIS WHEREABOUTS HAS STILL NOT BEEN CLEARED UP.

    ANXIETY ABOUT THIS POSSIBLE FATE CONTINUALLY POINTS TO LIBSON WHERE THE UNOFFICIAL BIAFRAN MISSION HAS BEEN MAINTAINED FOR THE PAST THIRTY MONTHS. OFFICIALS THERE, HOWEVER, INSIST THEY KNOW NOTHING OF GENERAL'S WHEREABOUTS DESPITE GROWING RUMOURS THAT LISBON IS THE MOST CONVENIENT PLACE FOR A LONG REST AFTER THE TURBULENCE OF HIS LAST FEW DAYS IN BIAFRA.

    A SUPER-CONSTELLATION WITH GENERAL OJUKWU'S MARKING HAS BEEN PARKED ON THE TARMAC AT LISBON AIRPORT SINCE THE WEEKEND WHEN NEWS OF HIS POSSIBLE ARRIVAL IN PORTUGAL WAS FIRST REPORTED.
