Federal Government Agrees To Pay N88bn Civil War Damages

The Federal Government on Monday agreed to pay a total of N88bn for the complete destruction of the remnant of landmines and bombs used during the Nigerian Civil War, and for other purposes including compensation of the victims, and reconstruction of public buildings in some parts of the states affected by the war.

Of the N88bn, the sum of N50bn is for compensation of the victims while N38bn is for the purpose of destruction of the landmines and rebuilding of public buildings affected by the war which took place between 1967 and 1970, mainly in the South-East zone, and some parts of the South-South and North Central zones.

About 493 victims of the war were said to have been earlier enumerated.
The affected states are the five states in the South-East zone – Imo, Anambra, Abia, Ebonyi, and Enugu; four states in South-South – Akwa-Ibom, Rivers, Delta, Cross River; and one North Central state – Benue.

This agreement was part of the resolution reached by the Federal Government and other parties to a suit filed on behalf of the victims and adopted on Monday by the Community Court of the Economic Community of West African States in Abuja as its judgment. The Federal Government is to pay the total sum of N88bn within 45 days from Monday.
