The history of 2 Division (formally 2 Infantry Division and later 2 Mechanized Division) Nigerian Army dates back to the Nigerian Civil War. The invasion of the Mid-West by 'Biafran' forces was so sudden that Headquarters Nigerian Army was caught unprepared by this invasion. However it reacted swiftly by forming the 2 Infantry Division. The first GOC was Lt Col Murtala Mohammed then Inspector of Signals (and later General and Head of State). He started the Division with hurriedly gathered cooks, batmen, clerks and all kinds of soldiers in Lagos area and Ibadan initially left out of battle.
