Here we share clips from a few of our many videotaped interviews, conducted in Tampa, Lagos, Benin City, Ibadan, London, and Asaba. Shorter versions of some were used in our video, "Most Vulnerable Nigerians: The Legacy of the Asaba Massacres," completed in 2012, and now available widely across the Internet.
Liz Bird interviews the late Akunwata Sylvester Okocha in Asaba, 2009. Mr. Okocha was a senior civil servant in Benin before fleeing home to Asaba. He documented details of the massacres, and was later imprisoned in Lagos after trying to send information to the International Red Cross.
