ICHEOKU says another lucky one that survived the abortionist's pincers from the over 360,000 unlucky ones that get flushed out each year. May God help us all have a better resolution about unwanted pregnancies.


ICHEOKU says he is a British citizen leading the effort to free the people of Biafra from the clutches of the feudalistic Fulani controlled Northern Nigeria. Now, he is missing following the raid of his country home by the Fulani Army of Northern Nigeria. ICHEOKU says President Muhammadu Buhari led Nigerian government sponsored abductions and murders is on the increase and you wonder what it will take the international community to call him to order.


ICHEOKU says from being disrespectful to the flag to being unappreciative of the services of the military to overall being anti America; NFL players must learn to check their political activism outside the stadiums. They must not kneel on our dime. ICHEOKU supports the president 1000% on this and hereby calls on every player to respect the sensibilities of the many differently opined fans who paid to watch a game and not to be made mad by their personal political agenda.


“The United States Government is strongly committed to Nigeria’s unity. Important political and economic issues affecting the Nigerian people, such as the allocation of resources, are worthwhile topics for respectful debate in a democracy. Within the context of unity, we encourage all Nigerians to support a de-escalation of tensions and peaceful resolution of grievances. The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a terrorist organization under US law.” - Russell Brooks, United States of America.




"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do." - PDJT



ICHEOKU says the Red Cross does one heck of a good job going to the assistance of the needy; so in these times of great need, occasioned by so many hurricanes, flooding and earthquake, show that you really care, donate to help the victims rebuild their wrecked lives. Remember that the Almighty rewards a cheerful giver.



"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.


"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.



ICHEOKU says once again the diminutive midget of Pyongyang has been advised to heed the resolution of the United Nations firm stand against his continuing provocations; and that the total wiping out of his North Korea is now an option should he force the hands of the United States of American military. In a statement by the Defense Secretary Jim Maddog Mattis over its latest nuclear test, the secretary said “Our commitment among the allies are ironclad. Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so.” ICHEOKU says does not really know the joker that guy has, but whatever it is will likely very soon be forced out. The world including ICHEOKU is waiting and watching.


ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to go their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide their own Biafraexit.


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.

"When two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts do blow out fire." - William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew


“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ

Commendably the National Houses of Senate and Representatives through their various committees are presently looking into the crass recklessness that characterized the past “regime” of the medicine man of Otta, Babalawo Aremu Olusegun Obasanjo. While Icheoku applauds this unique effort by Nigerians to once hold her ex-government accountable for her stewardship, the peoples’ mandate holders must also take a step further and extend their inquiry to other failed governments of Yakubu Gowon, Shehu Shagari, Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida as well as Sani Abacha. It will not be fair just to concentrate the probe on Olusgeun Obasanjo’s past government without extending the searchlight on these other "destitute" past governments. Otherwise the current effort might be wrongly interpreted as a vendetta by the Hausa/Fulani Oligarchs on Obasanjo, for not following through with an undertaking to be tele-guided by them while in office. These feudal lords are equally still groaning for being out of power, the only job they "know how to do", and just for mere eight years. These past governments have a lot to be ashamed of and the sooner some of their skeletons are unearthed the better for the body psyche of Nigerians.
YAKUBU GOWON: - This Northerner from Plateau State presided over Nigeria from July 1966 through the unholy jihad-civil war against the Easterners till 1975. During his tenure in 1972 Nigeria accrued unprecedented revenue as a result of then energy crisis where global energy shortage was recorded. Admitted he did some work constructing some roads, overpasses aka flyovers, and a few other infrastructures in Nigeria; but he once declare that there was too much money and he did not know what to do with it. For not knowing how to properly invest the excessive revenue in infrastructure and sundry developments and also for his atrocious genocidal war against the people of Biafra which claimed several millions of lives, this also-disgraced ex-military junta from Plateau State should be probed. The asinine and venomous manner with which he waged the war against a people defending themselves from a total extermination entitles him to be taken in chains to the war crimes tribunal at The Hague for offences against humanity and human rights violations. As a potential war criminal. Yakubu Gowon should be made to become a cell-mate to Liberia’s enfant-terrible, Charles Taylor.
SHEHU SHAGARI: - This Northern weakling from Sokoto State presided over Nigeria, by proxy of Umaru Dikko, from 1979 to 1983; as President under the banners of the National Party of Nigeria (NPN). Although he informed the nation on arrival that he met an empty treasury, but the profligacy of his henchmen Umaru Dikko, Adisa Akinloye and Ibrahim Tahir was of such a Byzantine magnitude that he should be made to answer for their misdeeds. The politics of the Ajaokuta Steel Industry, the Metallurgical Institute and his government’s indiscriminate location of infrastructures, just out of partisanship, such as where they built big post offices in a rural agricultural communities that don’t even write letters. It was evidence of a government without a real man at the helm of affairs which resulted in its minions running wild everywhere.
MUHAMMED BUHARI:- This army general from Northern State of Katsina would have done well but he was a zealot! He headed the military junta in Nigeria from 1983 to 1985. The War Against Indiscpline with Babatunde Idiagbon was the hallmark achievement of his regime. Be that as it may, he showed traits of corruption when he "permitted" Major Jokolo to bring in fifty three suitcases without the necessary Customs check into Murtala Mohammed Airport Lagos during the currency change of 1983. The appearance of impropriety when Buhari was waging a ferociuos war against indiscipline and asociated corrupt practices was mind-boggling. Also Buhari retroactively sentenced and executed Barthlomew Owoh and Crew for a drug complicity which they were involved in long before the decree of death was promulgated. This Buhari also perverted democracy by overthrowing an elected government of Shehu Shagari in a military coup de tat. So for his anti democracy activities, for crimes against humanity of retroactive capital punishment and for apparent corruption, this also disgraced ex-leader of Nigeria shoul dbe investigated.
IBRAHIM BADAMOSI BABANGIDA: - This self acclaimed evil genius military junta held Nigerians against their will from 1985 to 1993. If there is any other Nigeria “leader” that deserves to be x-rayed, that person’s name is Ibrahim Badamosi Babaginda aka IBB His dare-devil obsession for power made him overthrow a government wherein he was serving as a defense minister – what a tragedy of disloyalty. He also forcibly retired his confidant defense minister Domkat Bali without according him any courtesy while the said Domkat was vacationing in his home State of Plateau; this was after using him to execute Mamman Vasta. So much of sympathy for these military marauders! He trumped a coup and implicated his best man at his wedding, Mamman Vasta, a poet and executed him immediately and informed the nation after the fact. The mother of all state murders and killings under this munchkin’s regime was the parcel bomb execution of a trail-blazing investigative journalist, Dele Giwa of the Newswatch magazine. It was thought that this journalist was investigating alleged drug involvement of this army general when his life was brutally cut short by TNT explosive sent to him from the seat of government headed by IBB. All attempts by Gani Fawehinmi to force an investigation into this dastard murder have been continuously frustrated by the powers that be because they are afraid the inquest might incriminate Ibrahim Badmosi Babangida. There was also a plane load of ebullient army officers including an acquaintance Captain Mba that was forcibly brought down at Ejigbo near Lagos on the watch of Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida; wiping out a new generation of young army officers because allegedly, IBB was afraid of their possible putsch. On financial crime, the first gulf war brought into Nigeria coffers, more that then $12billion dollars USD and Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida is yet to tell Nigerians how that money was spent or the private bank account number in Zurich Switzerland housing the money. Politically, IBB committed genocide with his annulment of the first freest and squarely won democratic election of the century which saw Bashorun Moshood Kamowole Abiola as the elected President of Nigeria. He brazenly annulled it and damned the consequence. Legally, IBB challenged the superiority of a legally constituted investigative judicial body led by Justice Chukwudiufu Oputa, somewhat similar to South Africa’s Truth Commission. The tribunal had requested testimony from IBB but were scorned and advised to travel to Minna Niger State, his home turf for whatever they may want from him. What a denigrate obsufucator of the law, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida is. For all these crimes and other numerous atrocities supervised by IBB, he should be handcuffed to a tribunal which should send him away forever, at least to show how not to rule a people. That he slaughtered the Gideon Orkar group is equally a credible ground for his investigation, trial and eventual conviction.
SANI ABACHA: - Although long dead and now in HELL, this short-man devil could be posthumously investigated for his atrocious regime in Nigeria between 1993 to 1998. Several billion dollars belonging to Nigeria was looted away under his regime. The death of Alhaja Kudirat Abiola and Pa Rewane, etc are enough criminal acts of and by the state under Abacha for which he should be made responsible. Human rights activist Poet Ken Saro Wiwa was charged, tried and executed for "treason" all within 24hours under the watchful supervision of Sani Abacha and the world learnt about it several hours after the fact of the state murder. The then Minister for external affairs, Tom Ikimi was embarrassed to learn about it from a foreign news correspondent in far away Asia when the reporter asked him why his government was in such a rush to execute Ken Saro Wiwa? A man of credible character in Tom Ikimi's shoes would have resigned on the grounds of this shut out by the government he was serving, but instead he stuck in there like atypical Nigerian shameless steward who is just happy to be tolerated around the corridors of power. He can be posthumously convicted even if for a symbolical purposes only and for the records. He equally had his fair share of periodically alleging phantom coups and killing and locking up people in the process. Luckily some of his henchmen like Jeremiah Useni, Oladipo Diya etc are still around to answer for the sins of this midget from Kano State of Northern Nigeria.
In conclusion therefore, while I do not carry water for Aremu Olusegun Obasanjo, justice should be served fairly. Obasanjo was not the only thief or vampire to have ever held Nigeria hostage. What is good for the gander is also good for the goose and the arrogance of the Arewa Consultative Forum notwithstanding; the probe of past governments SHOULD extend to all the past inept governments which suffered Nigeria greatly. This is the only thing that makes sense and Babalawo Aremu Olusegun Obasanjo should not be singled out, just because a Mallam so desired. This is the time for the South to finally call the bluff of these feudalistic overlords in the North, who parade themselves like the lords of manor of Nigeria. Regrettably Obasanjo failed to fully mobilize the South for this moment when they would have risen in unison in his defence and against the Northern Oligarchs once and for all; but by Obasanjo not developing the South during his infamous eight years in power, there is no basis both in law and in fact for the South to rally around him. If Olusegun Obasanjo has a critic who loathes him dearly, this blogger is one of them; extending to 1999 when I campaigned vigorously against his second adventure into the Nigeria presidency - being an ex-military man whose first coming in 1976 was less than desirable. But should the South sit out this moment when the North rallies around even their most despicable leader such as Abacha in times of need? I don’t think so; and like the former secretary of FCA Omotola said during the investigative panel hearing the corruption charges in Abuja recently, the country belongs to us all.
On a final note, the one good thing to come out of this attempt by the National Assembly is that a once in a lifetime opportunity knocks on the door for Nigerians to rise up and take their country back from these few despicable "leaders" who have hijacked the country from them since independence. Hold them accountable and ban them from holding any public office for life as a deterrent for future would be thieves of the treasury. The people of the country should support their elected representatives and encourage them to go the full nine yards in investigating these corrupt charges and where credible basis exists for trying the culprits, should comence such process and if convicted, they all should be sentenced accordingly and made to pay restitution to Nigeria as may be adjudged fair and reasonable wherever the circumstance so dictates.

Like was observed in this article, the arewa group defends even their worst denigrate person when politics with the south is involved. How can any sane person have anything good to say about Sani Abacha amidst the several state sponsored murders of his regime? It baffles every intelligence that these cohorts and co-travellers of nigeria mismanagement unlimited are today pouring praises on despotic midget Sani Abacha. Anyway, what will it take for the South to galvanize and face down these mallams from the North or is their ridership of the donkey-south not yet enough? Now read their ecomiums -

Abacha Never Stole, Say Buhari, Babangida

The late military Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, did not loot the national treasury contrary to the general impression, two military former heads of state have said.
Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, who ruled Nigeria between 1983 and 1985, and his successor, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, gave Abacha the clean bill in Kano yesterday after the rememberance prayers marking 10 years of the death of Abacha, who ruled between 1993 and 1998.
Abacha was accused of stealing nearly £5 billion while in office, out of which over $1 billion has reportedly been recovered from various sources around the world.
But Babangida, who described Abacha as a “courageous, loyal and honest military head of state who stood for the unity and development of the country during his years in government”, has dismissed the allegations.
He said the looting allegations against Abacha were unfounded and baseless, stressing that “it is not true that he looted public treasury. I knew who Abacha was because I was close to him”.
Babangida said: “Abacha was a courageous person who stood firmly in handling the affairs of the country during his regime.”
He added that the regime of Abacha brought positive changes in the country which should have been emulated.
He said 10 years after the death of Abacha, his contributions to the nation’s economy remain indelible.
“There is no doubt, during his administration as head of state, Abacha contributed his best to the nation’s economy which we are still enjoying,” he said.
Babangida’s new position however contrasts with what he told Newswatch magazine in July 2000.
He had said: “The revelations [on Abacha’s loot] surprised me. I am surprised, because I didn't know.”
He had also explained that Abacha's death brought "relative stability", adding that "it gives us, oh well, let's see, there is hope after all".
Babangida, in that interview, also blamed the society for allowing Abacha to grow into the dictator he became.
"I feel bad that society failed to realise that they have a duty to protect whatever values they hold dear to their hearts as far as this country is concerned. At any rate, there are people I like and do respect those who stood against the regime, who are not military officers but civilians who are able to speak out. They didn't mince words and if their views had been heard, he wouldn't have [done enough harm]," he had said in response to a question.
Buhari, in his own comments yesterday, described the allegations of looting against Abacha as “baseless”, because according to him, “ten years after Abacha, those allegations remain unproven because of lack of facts”.
While also commenting, former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, who took over when Abacha died on June 8, 1998, commended his predecessor for initiating Vision 2010, saying that the economic vision of the present administration termed Vision 2020 is a replica of Abacha’s 2010 initiative.
Abubakar also tasked Nigerian politicians to concentrate on how best to contribute to national development instead wasting time and money investigating their predecessors, adding that probing past administrations “does not yield anything positive to the nation and should be discouraged”.
Babangida also spoke on the probe of his government by the immediate past administration, saying: “We are still waiting for the outcome of the probe.”
The three former leaders sat close to one another during the special prayer session which started exactly 10am and lasted for over one hour at an open compound belonging to the family of the former head of state.
The prayer session was attended by former Abacha’s aides, Emirs of Hadejia, Gumel, Jema’a and Chief Fredrick Fasehun of Odua Peoples Congress (OPC).
