Did you know? A Nigerian Chief offered his sons to kill Adolf Hitler!

The Second World War lasted from 1939-1945. It involved the vast majority of the world’s nations—including all of the great powers—eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis.

Adolf Hitler was leader of Germany during the Third Reich (1933 – 1945), he singlehandedly brought the whole world to war.

It was the most widespread war in history, and directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of “total war”, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Marked by mass deaths of civilians, including the Holocaust (in which approximately 11 million people were killed) and the strategic bombing of industrial and population centres (in which approximately one million were killed, and which included the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki), it resulted in an estimated 50 million to 85 million fatalities.

Meanwhile, in a little known area in Nigeria, a brave Chief, in 1942 offered to send 3 of his strongest sons to Germany to track  and kill Adolf Hitler, the man leading the war from Germany.
