PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ARE ENGAGED: HURRAY!

ICHEOKU says they look nice together and hopefully the crazy media and their paparazzi hordes will let them be and not force them into a life of misery or accidentally run them off the cliff. Lady Di's tragic experience is still painfully fresh till this day and no one, not ICHEOKU, wants to relive or experience such awfulness again, NEVER again. May God protect and bless the duo as they take their baby steps into the journey of of so many unknown absurdities called marriage. All the best Harry and Meghan.


North Korea: A STATE SPONSOR OF TERRORISM.

ICHEOKU says it is official, the reclusive North Korean leader Kim Jung Un has succeeded in invoking the wrath of the United States of America and now his country been put back into the list of States which sponsors terrorism. So alongside Iran, Sudan and Syria, North Korea will now pay a hefty price economically and as rightly articulated, this latest designation will further squeeze the country and force it into a better behavior.


ALEX EKWUEME IS DEAD

ICHEOKU says former Nigerian Vice President during the second republic presidency of Alhaji Shehu Shagari, Dr Alexander Ifenayichukwu Ekwueme, is dead. He died of natural causes in a London hospital. He was 85 years old. May his soul now rest. Adieu Alex.


TESLA TRUCK ARRIVES: HURRAY!

ICHEOKU says while you were distracted and not paying attention, the man who has revolutionalized driving with his zero emission and zero gasoline, 100% electric Tesla cars, has added yet another vehicle to the Tesla family stable. An all electric truck that can go up to 500 miles on a single charge. ICHEOKU says congratulations to Elan Musk and group.

ALABAMANS: DONT LET WASHINGTON DICTATE TO YOU, VOTE ROY MOORE FOR SENATE.

WHO IS AFRAID OF A SENATOR MOORE?

ICHEOKU says after nearly forty years in public office and about eight elections he participated in during so many decades, nothing was heard, not even a whiff. So for this allegation to come out now is nothing short of a hatchet job, orchestrated by the NEVER MOORE crowd and their Swamp establishment sponsors who do not want a straight shooting purist in the United States of American Senate. But drain the swamp is a task that must be done and Judge Roy Moore will help see the effort through. Vote Moore for the Senate. He will represent Alabama creditably well in the Washington DC. Show them pepper Judge and please DO NOT backdown or cave in to the latest attempt to blackmail you out of running. Trump did not backdown and so should you. Salute


AMERICA STRONG!

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No one — no dictator, no regime and no nation — should underestimate, ever, American resolve."


HACKS BY DONNA BRAZILE: A BOOK OF WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

ICHEOKU says the long knives are coming out and only a person with an AK47 will have an edge in the current political saga convoluting the Democratic Party, since their loss of the last presidential election. Ordinarily, this book of Hacks would have been a good window into the occultism that has become the Democratic Party, but coming from a woman who herself is an insider HACK in chief and who stole debate questions from Fake News CNN and handed them over to Queen Crooked I Love Money Too Much Hillary Clinton, to enable her gain an undue advantage over the silver haired frail grandpa Bernie Sanders, makes it a highly lethargic, loathsome read. But hey, since it takes a dog to know one of its kind, Donna Brazile's latest book Hacks might be what Americans need to read in order to understand What really Happened; despite a book of similar title by the crooked woman, Queen Crooked Hilary Clinton, which rehashed her own peculiar facts, lies and fantasies. ICHEOKU will definitely read Hacks, but will not pay a dime for it; hope you too.

THE INGRAHAM ANGLE: ICHEOKU WATCHED AGAIN.

THE INGRAHAM ANGLE: ICHEOKU WATCHED AGAIN

ICHEOKU says as promised, gave Laura Ingraham another chance at watching her new show The Ingraham Angle. Yes, it is with delight that ICHEOKU reports that Day 2 was much better and saw a lot of improvement from its debut. She is lit and her presentation was much livelier and grasping than yesterday's. ICHEOKU will be watching and observing and hopes that it will make ICHEOKU a firm believer. Kudos to Laura.

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE FOUND!

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE EMERGES!

ICHEOKU says Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton was caught pants down colluding with the Russians and she has been trying so hard to pull the wool over the eyes of American people over whodunnit. What a lying, contriving, manipulative woman who lies so easily that you wonder whether truth actually exists in her lexicon. Pitiful.

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY HILLARY CLINTON

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY CLINTON

ICHEOKU says finally the circle is about being completed and American people and the world at large will come to know who in fact did the collusion. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Congress paid Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russian dossier which former CIA chief James Clapper said was the basis for the Trump investigation. Yet, the investigation is still ongoing, despite the now established fact that the basis of it was a manufactured phony. But hey, we shall see.


ICHEOKU says still wondering WHAT HAPPENED and the reason 33,000 emails were deleted and bleach washed? Hopefully American people will soon confirm their suspicion that those shouting themselves hoax with Russian Collusion might indeed be the ones who actually colluded with the Russians. So much for the Russian Reset button. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton, simply too crooked.


DAPHINE CARUANA GALIZIA MURDER: UNACCEPTABLE.

DAPHINE CARUANA GALIZIA MURDER: UNACCEPTABLE

ICHEOKU says the European Union must not allow this barbarism to go unsolved or unanswered. A journalist blogger blown up in a car bomb because of her writings and in an European Union member country is simply unacceptable. As a result the authorities in Brussels must demand a thorough investigation or better still lead the effort to unravel the monsters behind her assassination and bring justice to them. Daphine Caruana Galizia's murder must be solved and cannot be allowed to become another statistic of journalists killed to suppress freedom of speech. May her soul remain restless and haunt her killers until they are served justice. Adieu Daph.


GLAD TO BE CARRIED TO FULL TERM.

GRATEFUL TO BE CARRIED FULL TERM

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.


IPOB NNAMDI KANU: A BRITISH CITIZEN ABDUCTED BY THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT!

IPOB NNAMDI KANU: A BRITISH CITIZEN ABDUCTED BY THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT!
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.

JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.

JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.
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.

IPOB: NOT A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION - USA


“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.

BIAFRA CANNOT BE WISHED AWAY BY THE FULANI/HAUSAS

ROCKET MAN; ON A SUICIDE MISSION.



"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


DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

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.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

"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 PUT ON NOTICE

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.
"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.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

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.

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY
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.

PDJT ISSUES A VERDICT ON ISLAMIST TERRORISTS


"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.


BBOB: BRING BACK OUR BIAFRA

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.
#BringBackOurBiafra.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE - STEVE JOBS

“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

NIGERIA, THE UNENDING HUMAN SLAUGHTER!

The Hausa-Fulani terrorists of Nigeria have struck again, this time in the Plateau State city of Jos where their fanatical lunacy have claimed the lives of more than four (400) innocent Nigerians particularly of the disinterested Igbo origin. You may call it whatever you want, either political or religious riots, but at Icheokudotcom, we call it what it is - TERRORISM!
India's interior minister and their national security adviser have since resigned their offices following the Mumbai massacre but the authorities in Nigeria is yet to take full responsibility for the hell let loose in Jos by asking for the heads of their interior minister as well as other persons entrusted with safe-guarding the lives and properties of these dead and displaced Nigerians. Icheokudotcom says this lack of responsibility is the bane of Nigeria and the single reason for this kind of repeat-tragedies bedeviling this African nation. Somebody has to take the fall for the next guy to buckle up.

These crazed-out Hausa-Fulani mobs in addition to the several lives they untimely dispatched to the world beyond, also burned homes, shops, cars, vehicles, mosques and churches. As always, these urchins find one excuse or another to let out this their nefarious penchant for violating the sanctity of human lives - this time it was a disputed local government council elections that was used as a cover-up?

According to our findings, this latest mayhem was provoked after rumours spread that the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) candidate backed by Hausas had lost the race! Icheokudotcom says the implication of this Hausa-Fulani maniacal machination is that it must always be them, otherwise people have to be slaughtered like thanksgiving turkeys?

JOS MAYHEM
How they killed our husband –Pregnant wives
From EBOMHIANA MUSA and PAUL ORUDE, Jos
Wednesday, December 3, 2008


•The pregnant wives with their children

More Stories on This Section

Two pregnant housewives have recounted the chilling details of how their husband was brutally killed by rampaging youths who shot him and then burnt their house to ashes.

Hafsatu Mallam Muhammadu and Adama Muhammadu who said they narrowly escaped added that they watched helplessly as their husband died of gun shots in the neck at FOMWAN Hospital in Gangere where he was rushed to after he was shot and beaten to pulp.

The two distraught housewives, who spoke amidst tears to Daily Sun on Tuesday, four days after the sad incident, said they managed to escape without being able to carry any personal effects from their house in Tudun Wada area in Jos Metropolis as it was completely razed by rioters.

The senior wife, Hafsatu, 30, mother of five told Daily Sun, " I was in the house when the crisis started. My husband asked me to wait to see what was happening. I was scared. I wanted to run. He told me that I shouldn’t worry that there would be no problem. He didn’t know it was serious. Later, I jumped over the fence with my five children, even though I am four months pregnant."

Hafsatu said she and her five children went to one Liman’s house for safety. She said further, "My husband then went to the mosque and that was when he was shot in the neck."
Hafsatu, who is currently taking refuge at the Government Secondary School, Gangare along with her mate and thousands of other displaced persons, said efforts to save her husband’s life were in vain as he gave up few hours later.

Adama, the second wife of the deceased, escaped the same time with the senior wife and her children.
"It was a horrible experience," she said. "After we stayed at Liman’s house for a while, they came there and attacked again and we escaped. We trekked to Bukuru for hours for fear of being killed and to look for food. We were very hungry and tired. We had no where to run to. I am pregnant, my first, and it was a very difficult experinmce for me. My mate encouraged me to be strong, otherwise, I almost fainted," Adama added.

Adama said she was the one who alerted the other wife that it was dangerous to remain in the house.
She said, "I was waiting outside not too far from the mosque in my area when someone came and asked me to leave that it was not safe. I immediately went into the house to inform my mate."
Hafsat said they made their escape after waiting for their husband who had earlier gone to the mosque.
"When I didn’t see him, I was sacred. But news later came to us that he was shot in the neck. I was with him at the hospital but he couldnt speak and later he died.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Information, Comrade Nuhu Gagara, has confirmed that over 250 persons have been killed since the crisis erupted on Friday.
In an interview with Daily Sun in his office on Tuesday, Gagara said the state government has spent close to N80 million to take care of the victims who were displaced by the crisis.
He said food itmes, cloths, grains, drugs and other relief materials are being distributed daily among the displaced persons scattered in 20 different centres within Jos.

The commissioner disagreed with those who attributed the crisis to disagreement arising from the local election hled last week, noting that PDP was firmly on ground and had no oppostion in the state.
He said all the state EXCO members of the supposed main opposition party in the state, the AC, except the chairman have decamped to the PDP.
He, therefore, said there was no basis for any meaningful challenge or opposition against the dominace of the PDP.

However, officials of the Jamatul Nasiral Islam (JNI), highly disputed the figure being bandied by the state government.
As at 3:00 pm on Tuesday, 17 fresh bodies in two different vans were being shifted out of the Jos Central mosque for mass burial.

Five corpes in military uniform were sighted under the Nassarawa Gwom bridge as passersby gathered to take a pathetic glimpse at them.
The state police Commissioner, Mr Samson V. Wudah in company of the AIG zone 4, Mr. Richard Chime, toild Daily Sun at the state police command that the police authorities were on top of the sitruation.

He said more enforcement (men and materials) were being deployed from neighbouring states to beef up security on ground.
They condemned what they called outrageous figures being published by foreign media.
Meanwhile, curfew is still in force in the metropolis, even as the banks remain shut. Customers who daily beiseige the banks are groaning as they find it impossible to access funds.
Except for few shops which are opened for business, activities in the city remain paralysed.

Jos Crisis: Danjuma Calls For Probe Of Security Agencies


Crisis Not Over, Says Lawmaker
From Isa Abdulsalami, Jos
Former Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Theophilous Danjuma (rtd) has implored the Federal Government to investigate the role of security agencies in the crisis that rocked the city of Jos, Plateau State, last week.

And just as the people count their losses in the sectarian violence resulting from the local government elections of November 27, a member representing Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Bitrus Kaze, has warned that the crisis is far from being over.

"Let it be stated clearly that the perpetrators of the Jos mayhem are not relenting and nobody should be deceived that the crisis is over. It is important for this alarm to be raised at this moment. The Jos crisis, as far as the perpetrators of this heinous act are concerned, is not over; they are planning to strike again," Kaze said.

Responding to Governor Jonah Jang's statement during his visit to the state, that security report assured him that there would be no problem, Gen. Danjuma wondered why there could be such report yet the violence still took place. According to him, it means there was a failure on the part of the intelligence service.

The former Minister of Defence advocated the setting up of a high-powered commission of inquiry to investigate the causes, adding that the instigators, sponsors and perpetrators needed to be identified and punished to serve as deterrent against a recurrence.

"A Judicial Commission of Inquiry should be set up to determine what happened and make recommendations. It is only when justice is done and seems to have been done that the frequent crisis can be averted,'' he said.

Gen. Danjuma stated that the use of violence to settle political, religious or ethnic scores was inimical to the efforts towards building a modern, democratic and prosperous nation, adding that the unfortunate crisis was a setback to the efforts to promote unity, security and development in northern Nigeria and Nigeria as a whole.

He, therefore, appealed to the Federal Government and the Plateau State government to go beyond palliative measures and promote genuine reconciliation, rehabilitation and reconstruction, adding that the government needed to invest in mass education to equip and empower youths for productive living and create jobs for them through revival of agriculture and public work.

Responding, Governor Jonah Jang said it was impossible for any society to progress and for democracy to strive under crisis, adding that it was unfortunate that such crisis occurred in the state for the second time.

The governor, who debunked the claim that the crisis was caused by the local government election, said the election was conducted in a peaceful atmosphere without any rancour, adding that it was at the collating stage that some group of people started killing innocent citizens in Jos North Local Council.

Said he: "If it was a political crisis, one expected them to descend on government property, PLASIEC building but none of these were touched. Instead, Churches and other private residents were set ablaze.''

Kaze said there were clandestine and nocturnal meetings being summoned in some places of worship within Jos, involving some fundamentalists and former top-ranking officials of government. "They are planning to launch an offensive again using the inauguration of the elected local government council chairmen, especially that of Timothy M. Buba no matter when it holds," he said.

Kaze continued: "They are plotting to resort to any option to prevent him from being sworn-in and or assuming duties in his new office. We cannot risk relying on the confirmation or empty assurances of some Security Chiefs on this one any longer. We have sounded this alarm early enough for Nigerians to know and to watch events as they unfold in Plateau State. Jos is a miniature Nigeria and any threat to peace and security easily resonates across this huge nation."

He called on peace-loving citizens of the state to eschew violence in all its ramification and embrace civilized and legal means of expressing and assuaging their grievances. "We must all do every thing possible to desist from violence and not engage in behaviour that will jeopardize our hard earned peace." Kaze warned.

Kaze, at a press conference, corroborated newspaper reports that the election was peaceful. But "in the wee hours of Friday November 28, 2008, security reports filtered in that some irate youths had taken to the streets at Ali Kazaure Street with lethal weapons allegedly aggrieved at the perceived defeat of their preferred candidate in the elections even when results were still being collated and were yet to be announced.

It is common knowledge that on receiving this security report, Governor Jang immediately summoned Security Chiefs in the State and consulted them in two separate meetings, they left with a clear directive to checkmate any threat to peace. He also requested for the deployment of more security personnel from the Nigeria Army, Air Force and other Para-military agencies. It is my considered opinion that he deserves to be commended for rising up to the occasion early or else that carnage could have been worst," he stressed.
