This excerpt is part of the many full scale peace talks between Nigeria and Biafra. In the events of 1968, the war had taken an intense turn, heavily embodied in hostilities and severe inflictions especially on the Biafran people by the British government assisted-Nigerian government.
In the build up to the eventual agreement of seizure, many talks were held. Most of these talks which were held largely outside Nigeria were discarded and were trashed especially by the Nigerian government as soon as the delegations returned to the country. They mostly ended up lip talks.
