Anambra State has announced a nouveau major tourist attraction in the state.
The state revealed that the bunker used by pro-Biafran secessionist leader Chukwuemeka Ojukwu will be turned into a tourist site.
Chukwuemeka Ojukwu used the buker during the civil war in the 1960s. Caves and a waterfalls in the state would also be turned into major tourist sites. BBC reports this announcement was made by a spokesman for the state governor.
“These tourist centres will receive immediate attention with the construction of access roads to them as well as concrete footpaths that will lead into the bowels of the caves to make them easily accessible,” the spokesman for state governor Willie Obiano said.
The move is seen as an attempt to boost employment and income in a region where there is much poverty.
Ojukwu declared the formation of the breakaway state of Biafra in 1967, triggering a civil war in which more than one million people died.
He remains popular among many people in the south-east, who complain of economic and political marginalisation.
