He was made a proclaimed president of the region which was secessionated. This lead to bloodshed and resulted to the death of hundreds.
Later after then he was also made Liutenant and Colonel of the Eastern Region. This made him a decorated Military governor during that era.

Due to his selfless contribution Independence was declared for the Eastern parts of Nigeria which included different continental landforms and waters. After several other wars, the dream of Ojukwu came true. And the people of Nigeria were thankful to him for making this possible.
