⁣Ogbunigwe, the deadly mass destruction missile that made the Nigerian federal troops jittery, was a product of the scientific feat of the breakaway nation of Biafra. It was, allegedly, the first technology to be wholly designed, developed, mass-produced, and launched in Africa.

It was used in combat during the Nigeria-Biafra War (1967-1970) and at the height of production, about 500 units were being produced every day in Biafra. #HistoryVille #Ogbunigwe

This let me know that Kmtwy/Black people can design and produce their own military weapons if we really wanted to. We don’t need to be importing 2nd hand military weaponry into KMT/Africa.
