"For the historically-minded, she’s the daughter of Lt Col Victor Banjo. Brilliant soldier, one of best-known officers from Nig Civil War;he fought on the Biafran side. Ojukwu controversially executed him in Sept 1967. Here’s the last picture she took with him, in Enugu, March 1967.

Congratulations to her.
