We mustn’t forget to note that the stretch of phases-I, II and III of the Igbo genocide encapsulates the timeframe 29 May 1966-12 January 1970. The conduct of each and every operative – civilian, military – involved in organising/abetting/prosecuting this crime against humanity is consequently evaluated across this entire stretch. When one adds phase-IV, beginning 13 January 1970 to the present, the composite parameter, and therefore the overall picture, appropriately becomes fully encompassing. The pressing question of this age of pestilence is thus posed as follows: What is the role of operative A or operative B or operative C, for instance, in the Igbo genocide, 29 May 1966 to the Present Day?
