Why Are Nigerian Cities That Never Experienced The Civil War Underdeveloped?

192

The Nigerian-Biafran civil war was one of the most destructive wars fought on African soil. The level of destruction that happened to eastern cities specifically those of igbos was tremendous. Yet despite this destruction, so many cities in Nigeria didn’t experience a single bullet. One would expect those cities to be far more developed today. But traveling around Nigeria, it’s quite shocking to see some cities in this 21st century. The First 2 pictures are From Rwanda and Namibia The last 2 pictures are what Singapore looked like in the 60s and 70s. The Igbos can be excused because of the hand that they have been dealt with BUT What is the excuse for those who never experienced war?
