Title:The Nigerian crisis and foreign intervention: a focus on international law
Author:Adaramola, Funso
Periodical:The Nigerian Law Journal
Geographic term:Nigeria
right of intervention
Abstract:The recent Nigerian situation affords a specimen case-study of intervention. Several states had become involved in the crisis and in the civil war, but not every involvement would amount to intervention in law. The states that became involved can be placed in three categories: those which supported the Federal Government (leading members of this group were Britain, the U.S.S.R. and Egypt), those which though supporting the rebel government did not accord recognition to the rebel entity (Spain, Portugal, France, Israel, the U.S. and Communist China), and those which accorded diplomatic recognition to 'Biafra' (Tanzania, Gabon, Ivory Coast, and Zambia). Successively each category is discussed. Notes.
