Strategies and Diplomacy in the Nigeria’s War of Unity, 1967-1970 (Published)
This study examines the aim and strategies of the Nigerian Civil War 1967-1970, emphasizing the diplomatic positions and war strategies adopted by the two sides involved. It agrees that series of researches have been carried out as regards the Nigerian Civil War but only a few viewed it on the ground of diplomatic maneuvering and strategy. The various literatures laid more emphasis on the causes, dimensions and effects of the war without a thorough analogy on the use of tact and strategy in the context of the war. The study examines the use of propaganda, military tact, media, peace talks and summits in the context of the Nigerian civil war. This study is divided into two parts; the use of strategies by the Nigerian government and the Biafra people, as well as the peace talks and summits that took place during the war. Both primary and secondary sources are employed in this research.

Machine Learning Based Approach to Simulate Drone Dynamics Related to Figure of Eight Maneuvering Pattern (Published)
Drone will be a commonly use technology used by major portion of the society and simulating a given drone dynamic will be an important requirement. There are drone dynamic simulation models to simulate popular commercial drones. There are many proposed drone dynamic models with the base of Newtonian and fluid dynamics. Hoverer these models consist of many model parameters and it is impracticable to evaluate required model parameters to simulate a given drone. If there is a simple mechanism to built machine learning based drone dynamic model to simulate a any given drone then it is address most of the above issues. Figure of eight maneuvering pattern or its derivative is used in many activities in the domains of aviation, maritime and ground vehicle. Hence, proposed approach and conducted experiments presents the process of developing a machine learning based drone dynamics simulation related to a figure of eight maneuvering pattern
