Biafra 50 years on: A grandmother's perspective on the war

On the 50th anniversary since the end of the Biafran war, Miracle talks to her grandmother about her memories of living through the conflict.

The Biafran war took place between 1967 and 1970 in Nigeria over the formation of the state of Biafra.

It was one of Africa's bloodiest post-independence conflicts during which over a million people died through famine, disease and fighting.
