“His uncle who brought him to Sierra Leone, later became a lecturer at the Fouray Bay college, University of Sierra Leone. His uncle returned to Nigeria after the war but left my dad behind” -Ugoji

I’m Victoria Ugoji from Sierra Leone. My late father Philip Ugoji fled the Biafra war in Nigeria and moved to Sierra Leone with his uncle when he was only 11years old.

His uncle who brought him to Sierra Leone, later became a lecturer at the Fouray Bay college, University of Sierra Leone. His uncle returned to Nigeria after the war but left my dad behind.

He married my mum and they gave birth to two of us, myself and my brother, Victor. My dad unfortunately died when I was only 14years old. My mum did not know much about him so I couldn’t get more information about his family in Nigeria.

The only information I got from Nigeria is a post code of the school he attended as he used to send letters to his brother. Some names of his siblings were Rowland and Ebere Ugoji. I will really Appreciate if you can help me find my dad’s family as I know no one from my paternal side. Thank you and God bless you.
