History of Ojukwu Bunker
Built by Chief Odumegwu Ojukwu in 1968.
Formerly belonging to the Premier of the then Eastern Region, Chief Michael Okpara, the premises where the bunker is housed was offered to the Biafran government after the fall of the first capital of Biafra.
This is a very safe location.
What To Bring
Before heading to Ojukwu Bunker, here are some helpful things to take along with you:
A part of the National War Museum annex, this structural masterpiece was built in 90 days during the Civil War under a large field behind the main house. Originally referred to as the Subterranean Office of the Government of Biafra, it was renamed Ojukwu Bunker by the public.
The war still echoes in the conference room through the pictures of some of the major players in the war. These include the young Ojukwu with beards and in full Biafran camouflage, the late Dr. Pius Okigbo, the late Cyprian Ekwensi and the late Professor Chinua Achebe. There are also pictures of scenes from the war.
