Following his visit to Biafran military commander Odumegwu Emeka Ojukwu, Nigerian novelist and filmmaker Onyeka Nwelue has announced plans to produce a documentary about Wole Soyinka’s captivity.
Nwelue recently revealed a recent interview with former President Olusegun Obasanjo for his witness account of the events preceding to the Nigerian civil war between 1967 and 1970, titled ‘The Last Night in Biafra.’
“I am developing a documentary on Wole Soyinka, titled, “The Last Night in Biafra.” It chronicles Soyinka’s journey to Enugu, to see Ojukwu,” Nwelue wrote on Twitter.
“President Obasanjo was gracious enough, to invite me into his study and answered all my annoying questions. Frederick Forsyth appears.”
Nwelue’s documentary follows the release of his feature film ‘Other Side of History,’ which is based on an Iduma Kalu piece.
The feature film, directed by Lorenzo Menakaya, Daymé Arocena, and Pablo Dewin Reyes Maulin, tells the life of Odumegwu Emeka Ojukwu, a Biafran hero.
