In this video, we delve into the events leading up to and following the Nigerian 1966 Coup d'état, which remains one of the most significant turning points in Nigerian history. We explore the complex political landscape of Nigeria at the time, marked by ethnic tensions, regionalism, and a struggling economy. We examine the key players involved in the coup, including the "Young Majors" who led the coup and the political figures they overthrew. We also analyze the aftermath of the coup, including the bloody counter-coup that took place later that year and the eventual emergence of General Yakubu Gowon as Nigeria's leader. Join us as we explore the political, social, and economic impact of the Nigerian 1966 Coup d'état, and how it shaped the course of Nigerian history in the decades that followed
