I have titled this collection of works Egwu Eke in order to preserve the memory of a time when the Nigerian military were unleashed against unarmed civilians because they dare to hope for a better country. Like all performances ,this dance will soon be over and everyone will  go home.I hope these paintings will remain as reminder of how not to mismanage an already bad situation.
Operation Egwu Eke (dance of the python) was the name given by the Nigerian military to their mission in south-east Nigeria when they were ordered to silence all forms of agitation for secession by members of the Indigenious People of Biafra (IPOB)
