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.

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..

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.

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 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.

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.

BABANGIDA 2011, OJUKWU'S ALLEGED ENDORSEMENT IS IMPRUDENT?

The Ikemba Nnewi and Dikedioranma of Igboland, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, recently played host to some Babangida's errand boys aka town-criers, who had paid him a visit under the aegis of a comatose New Nigeria Peoples Party led by one Major Agbo? According to the story, they came on behalf of Babangida to solicit Ojukwu's, and by extension, Igbos' support for Babangida's nefarious plan to foist himself again back on the Nigerian people as president in 2011? Sourced information claimed that Ojukwu bought into the poisoned candidacy of Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida and endorsed him for president?

Icheoku screams holy macro, unbelievable and surprise, surprise; and hereby denounces the alleged act of approval as a betrayal to everything Igbo, their fabled resilience and standing up for justice for all Nigerians! Such nod of approval to Babangida's candidacy by Ojukwu himself, sends a wrong message that what Babangida did was of no interest, concern or consequence for the Igbo people of Nigeria? Icheoku says not in our name! Such an endorsement is an affront to the general psyche of Nigerians who are yet to fully recover from the trauma that was June 12th 1993; as well as other concomitant atrocities of Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida's regime; including the thousands of innocent Nigerian lives that were lost under his brigandage and direct supervision/approval.

Icheoku asks, what was Ojukwu thinking or smoking when he poured this heinous libation for Babangida; or has he not "strayed" enough from the course since his return from exile in 1982, when he pitched his tent with NPN instead of the NPP? Admitted he had then promised to take the Igbos back to the mainstream of Nigeria with his joining NPN; but his recent political antecedents, carrying the banner of APGA, suggests he is no longer mindful of the quest for a full integration? When the Igbos and other peoples of the defunct Biafra thought that Ojukwu's going to Abuja, cap in hand, to genuflect before his juniors, for his pension as a retired Nigerian army colonel was already enough insult on what they fought and died for; now comes the mother of all disappointments, the Ikemba's endorsement of the Nigerian worst reject, the most hated man alive in Nigeria, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida? Does Ojukwu, a once darling hero of the Igbos and the entire former Eastern region, still have any moral scruples left in him; or does he think that simply because Ojukwu says so, that makes it alright; and every Igbo man and woman should salute and bow out?

But to Babangida and all those unconscionable chorus-singers who throng around him, and who are goading him into a mistake of an unimaginable self-destructive gambit in 2011, Icheoku says, you are long lost at sea. If Babangida and his minders think that Ojukwu still speaks for the entire Igbo nation, then they have another thing coming. Ojukwu's credibility have since so watered down and eroded in Igbo-land, that of all five full Igbo States and their brother quasi-Igbo states of Delta and Rivers, Ojukwu could only manage to turn enough sympathizers as to win in only his native Anambra State out of thirty-five states in Nigeria? A formerly highly respected regional champion and hero of the people, have now so imploded as to become pigeon-holed into a mere one state's demi-god and henchman? Peradventure, Babangida gambled that because the former INEC's chairman and election manipulator, Maurice Iwu choose not to disgrace Ojukwu completely by awarding him Anambra State, that alone makes Ojukwu the man to go to with respect to Igbo support and votes? And because Babangida is too old, he still sees Ojukwu in the old-school eyes of the Biafran warlord but forgot that the area formerly known as Biafra have split into eleven states, many of which does not hear Ojukwu when he calls? Hopefully for his job, Ojukwu collected a sack-full of IBB's illicit stash; and since 2011 is just around the corner, we shall see how much Ojukwu's endorsement is really worth?

Babangida committed series of mortal sins which cannot be easily wished away, forgiven or forgotten; and not by any true and decent Nigerian alive or dead. How can any sane Nigerian hold a brief of forgiveness for this killer-monster and ask for 'Nigerians to lay to rest all their bitterness and hatred of former President Ibrahim Babangida, over his botched June 12 presidential elections'.
Unfortunately, these Babangida's apologists forgot to add to his June 12th atrocity, his terrorist bombing of Dele Giwa to smithereens; his vicious murder and acid-pouring on the body of Poet Mamman Vasta following a fathom coup; the disappearance of Gloria Okon; the death in a military coup of Thomas Sankara of Upper Volta; the 132 military officers that perished in a staged Ejigbo plane crash; the pains of Structural Adjustment Program (SAP); the refusal to retire late midget of Kano Sani Abacha when he forcibly stepped aside; the destruction of the society known as Nigeria through wanton corruption and the institutionalization of 419 criminality; the first devaluation of the Naira to accommodate his bureau-d-change currency changers, who helped launder his millions of dollars of illegal drug proceeds; his Zango Kataf massacre; the unceremonious retirement of Domkat Bali from the army; the murder of Gideon Orkar and group of other patriotic Nigerian military officers who wanted to remove the cancer that was then killing Nigeria as personified in Babangida; the criminal overthrow of second republic democratically elected government of President Shehu Shagari in December 1983; the stab at the back-like overthrow of the government of Muhammadu Buhari in which he was the gates keeper, being the Minister of defence; - a case of a guardian robbing the fort? So for which of these crimes are Nigerians being asked to forgive Babangida of, or is Ojukwu now so forgetful not to understand that Nigerians still hurt from Babangida's hostage-taking of Nigeria and its associated brigandage and that also thousands of Igbo people lost their lives during the Abiola upheaval?
Just thinking about IBB makes Icheoku want to throw up; and we wonder what type of toxicity is whirling in the brains of all these Nigerians clamouring for his presidency in 2011? Call it personal if you want, but Icheoku refuses to accept that there is any sane Nigerian alive today who witnessed what transpired between 1983 to 1993 under Babangida's infamous military regime, who could sincerely fathom or entertain the idea of the absurdity of an IBB presidency in Nigeria again? To this shadowy Major Agbo who led his NNPP delegation to Ojukwu to solicit his/Igbo support on behalf of Babangida, Icheoku emphasises that there is a chasm between "taking responsibility" and "apologising" for a crime especially the crime of June 12th? And assuming for the sake of conversational deduction that both words have now become interchangeable in their meaning and purport, Icheoku asks, what about the other crimes of Babangida's regime or are they not egregious enough for him to also "take responsibility" for?
This selective "taking of responsibility" by Babangida for June 12th is primarily goal-driven and targeted; and we make bold to add, were it not for his ill-advised move to vie for the presidency in 2011, Babangida would not have ever cared to volunteer that he is taking responsibility for that criminality. Icheoku have never heard about this Major Agbo prior, but says it is good that no one knows him; otherwise what a nightmare it would have been thinking that a person you thought you know is nothing but a shriveling cockroach? Maybe he only rose to the rank of a "Major" in the army through the help of Babangida and now wants to show his appreciation; but sure this man or woman that is preached and sold the gospel of Babangida to Ojukwu, and who forced Icheoku's hands against a revered man, has no shame at all; his/her conscience is as dark as Hades. What a case of Judas IsCariot and the miserable 12 shekels of silver, that forced this human specimen to take upon himself such an inglorious and dishonorable errand trying to hawk a Babangida's candidacy that is dead on arrival?
Further Icheoku disagrees with Major Agbo that June 12th was a 'mistake'; and asserts that it was a deliberate and calculated callous act of wickedness, perpetrated by Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida to deny MKO Abiola his fairly won mandate; which forced Abiola to declare, "with a friend like IBB no one needs an enemy!" The same remorseless Babangida, few years ago, went to the Kano's graveside of Sani Abacha and paid him tribute as the best "head of State" Nigeria ever had? Icheoku says, may be for helping Babangida finish off Abiola and ensuring that Abiola's mandate never resurrected? The definition of "mistake" is some unintended or undesired result of an act, which June 12th definitely was not since it was fully calculated and deliberated upon. Major Agbo's sanctimonious preaching of forgiveness for Babangida is also fraught with deceit since Babangida never adverted his mind to forgiveness nor asked for one by saying he is truly sorry for his sin of June 12th annulment as well as the many other infra-digs of his regime? Talk about asking for forgiveness in HELL, long after a person had assumed room temperature; possibly this Major Agbo is not a christain otherwise he would have been acquainted with the teachings regarding when and how to ask for forgiveness? In answer to Major Agbo's posed question on what Babangida could do to assuage Nigerians ill-feelings towards him, Icheoku says, let Babangida jump off a cliff or bridge; or at least, withdraw himself from the 2011 presidential race. Babangida should help Nigerians to heal by getting out of the Nigerian political scene forever and for good; he is an eyesore and a constant reminder of the evil that he represents.
The Igbos of South East Nigeria, the new minority of Nigeria politics, cannot and have refused to get their acts together politically, because of some people who supposedly are in their leadership positions? Imagine a whole Ojukwu endorsing Babangida for president despite the facts on the ground that makes such an endorsement an untouchable and avoidable poison pill? The other time, it was the South East governors who were caught on the wrong side of the divide following the power tussle that ensued between former vice/acting president Jonathan and the Yar'Adua cabal? Prior to that, PDP's chairman Vincent Ogbulafor guffawed that the presidency remains in the north in 2011 without first checking with or consulting the then acting president to feel him out on his plans or any possible game-changer? That Igbos went through five senate presidents within four years until Ken Nnamani stopped the banana-peel syndrome bears no better testament either as to their political astuteness? For the first time in the history of a representative government in Nigeria, a major tribe like the Igbo, occupies neither the presidency, vice presidency, senate presidency nor the speaker of the house? Inexplicable! In the political gamesmanship of Nigeria, Igbos have been found grossly wanted and deficient; and unless they do something serious to tidy up their losse ends and really fast, every other zone in Nigeria might possibly taste the presidency before them; assuming they are ever considered for such opportunity? But who in his widest imagination in Igboland could ever imagine, a few short years ago, that the south-south minority will first preside over Nigeria before the South East?
Icheoku reiterates that June 12th and all atrocities committed by Babangida is not just the exclusive concern or injury to one certain section or zone in Nigeria, but that of every freedom and democracy loving Nigerian. Whatever war that will be waged or is now being waged or prosecuted to honor that sacred mandate by stopping Babangida in 2011, should also include and find the Igbos within the fore-front of the battle. June 12th is not a wrong against only Abiola or the Yoruba South-west nor is Dele Giwa's murder only an Iru-Ekpen's mortal violation, but these as well as other crimes of Babangida were wrought on the collective psyche of all Nigerians and so must retribution be championed by all Nigerians. Also Babangida's disrespect for a duly constituted Justice Oputa panel of inquiry is not just an affront on the erudite justice but on every Nigerian; and so also was the missing $12billion dollars a general commonwealth fund of Nigerians including the Igbo South East.
Concluding, Icheoku tasks the Igbos to politically wise up before it is too late and end its perpetual genuflecting tendencies to anything out of northern Nigeria, including Babangida. The civil war was since over four decades ago and according to the verdict of reconciliation, there was no victor, no vanquished? The Igbos should become more assertive as full bona fide members of the Nigerian society and forcefully demand to be taken seriously by other components of the Nigerian federation. If the Igbos are waiting for anyone to just hand them power or the presidency without any meaningful serious agitation, then they will have to wait for too long if not forever; as power is never given freely but taken by whatever means necessary. The Yorubas south-west were heard during Abiola's unrest and Obasanjo became president for eight long years; the south south Niger Delta did it with militancy and Jonathan is now a full fledged president.
The truth of the matter is that Babangida is evil and anyone supporting or endorsing him, or seen to be doing either or both, could as well pass for a mini-evil giving comfort to the enemy! Such support and/or endorsement is an unconscionable act, mindful of the blood, tears and sorrow Babangida rained on Nigerians!. Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu has not denied that he endorsed Babangida and witnesses bear testimony to this perfidy; hence our condemnation of the said endorsement as blatant, reckless and capable of alienating the Igbos further from other good people of Nigeria, especially among the Yoruba south west. Igbos cannot afford to be seen as the group that glossed over Babangida's crimes and is cavorting with a murderer. Icheoku says to the Igbos, never again shall they allow themselves to be caught like a deer in the headlight, on the wrong side of the intriguing political permutations in Nigeria. Their apparent support for the moribund IBB's very insulting 2011 presidential ambition with this Ojukwu's endorsement is not a healthy political move; and smacks of political naivety. Nigerians will not have a Babangida's presidency in 2011 or any other time; and the sooner the Igbos realize this and jettison off IBB's unworthy political boat, the better.

Ojukwu is old and probably senile. He falls flat on his face for anyone who gives him a little recognition. And that is what the Nigerian system does to people of principles. It corrupts their minds and changes them to irrational yes-men. Ojukwu should simply keep quiet and live out the rest of his days in peace, outside politics. - SF

Icheoku, I'm happy you said "according to the story". That means your piece is based on hear say. For your information, l heard another version that claimed that Ojukwu never endorsed Babangida. That he only affirmed the man's right to contest and expressed appreciation to some of his actions that benefitted the Igbos. SR is a credible medium and we will appreciate you hold back your pen if you cannot confirm the story. My take is that Ojukwu is more intelligent than your writing suggests. - PeeWee

This commentator is mulling the observation that Ojukwu's endorsements somehow turn out to be a panacea for failure. Think of the fate that befell his previous endorsees; the younger Etiaba who paid a visit, think of Andy, remember his statement on Iwu. All these came to grief; take heart, who says that this will not go the same way. I however agree with the writer that if what is credited to him is true, then a few people might get distracted.- Nathan Oparaeche

The Ikemba used to be my hero, and I'm sure the same thing applies to most Ibos. A lot of us today were not yet born when he led us to that infamous war, but his recent activities is a thing of worry, and even throws in a big question mark as to why the war was fought at the first place; they all most times, spank of selfishness, instead of the assumed selflessness.- Eldorado

This episode shows that it's time we all start to think for ourselves, and stop following so called leaders & traditional rulers. Ojukwu was great once. We have all moved on. We should become independent of thought. In UK's finished elections, newspapers & the great n' good lectured people on how to vote. The voters simply ignored them and produced a coalition govt. From now on, all Africans should reason for themselves and ignore all so called 'leaders'. Only then would we start to develop when we become individually & intellectually independent.

The inhabitants of the former Eastern region are generally republican in their approach to issues of life. No sane Nigerian with any moral atom or minutest of conscience would wish the character of a Babangida foisted on this nation again. NEVER!. Ojukwu has the right to say what befits him, but to endorse Babangida amounts to nothing, or have the Igbos become blind followers. I do not think so.

The Ikemba is my hero, and will be till the end of time.If not for his affront, maybe my people would have been eliminated completely from Nigeria and Igboland would probably have been pillaged.But with this statement credited to him i am really scared and ask one big question, Was the war really managed well? whatever is the answer, Ikemba should remember those Ibo youths who went head on with their culasses and Machete's to confront machine gun firing federal troops at ninth mile, Ikemba should remember the final battle of uzoakoli, where Biafran troops were handed five bullets per rifle and men had to wait for their comrades to fall to enemy fire before they can have a rifle to use, Ikemba should remember the empty class rooms at the university of Nigeria after the war.Ikemba, remember and please dont make statements that will make our falling Hero's turn in their unmarked graves.Pls dont mention Ibo's when you make controversial statements. - Umunnakwe

We all free men and women, the freedom to think what you want is the greates freedom a Man can have. If there's any Igbo person out there who is so slavish of mind that they'll vote for IBB simply becasue the Ikemba told them to, then of course such people deserve all they get in life. I've got quite a few Igbo friends and I can't think of one who would cast their vote based on what somebody else has proclaimed. Let us all learn to free our minds. Who cares who Ojukwu or anyone else for that matter favours in 2011, it is we the people who will decide, the examples have already been set in Edo, Ondo, Kano and Anambra, come 2011 the voice of the people shall be the only one that counts. - Firestorm

The conduct and misconduct of IBB and his notorious administration for 8years in Nigeria is recorded in the annals of political history in our country, believe it or not, IBB you cannot erase your history, because it is a record, your legacy of tyranny will have its traits sooner or later, but as for your present momentum, you can make a U-Turn, for it is not too late, to withdraw your inordinate desire to stage a comeback, those who support your come back are disillusioned. With undiluted truth, devoid of innuendo and sarcasm, we make bold to say, you are daydreaming.- Ebeno Daisy

If Ojukwu is not that important, nobody will ever consider his statement to carry weight. Whenever Ojukwu say something, many frustrated igbophobias will digress to talk about Biafra war.It amazes me how jobless spineless internet warriors,are reacting to a political statement made by a warlord.The people condemning Ojukwu here are the same cowards who were not found when men were men.I dont know why people are having a sleepless night because Ojukwu said that he will support IBB,if Nigerians are behind him, if not that because Ojukwu came from a tribe that is naturally superior over theirs.- Stanley Igwe

KENEDY OKONKWO@ You are a racist of the highest order, is there any where in this article where mentioned was made of the Yorubas, or the writer of this article a Yoruba man? If Ikemba say you should jump into the Ocean then jump into it, nobody is stopping you, it is your life, and mind you Ikemba has used his most of his life and enjoy it, it remains to be seen how you want to live yours without referring to other tribes under flimsy excuses and less I forget, nobody, no Yoruba or any tribe in Nigeria want the Igbos to forget the past, it is part of history, it can never be forgotten, Most of you are just covering up for Ojukwu, it is what he said, nobody put it into his mouth, so why pretending that he did not mean it, He is a leader and have a right to his opinion and decision, which need to be respected by everybody Referring to the Yorubas when one of your leaders is cricticised can never help your cause. No tribe is telling the Ibos not to love Ojukwu. - rlow

The stupidity of some Igbo's has become so shameful I fear for the future of the people. Some people who have an axe to grind with Babangida decide to drag Ojukwu's name in the mud and some fools without waiting to hear from Ikemba become super Nigerians by abusing the very man how made sure their parents are not lying in a mass grave in Kaduna today. I hope he actually endorses IBB publicly so some people can commit suicide. Was IBB evil when he was making Obasanjo the president in 1999? I believe those foolish Igbo's making noise now did not remember to ask Obasanjo why he was accepting visits from IBB in 1999.Chukwu kpokwa unu oku. - Nwa Amadi

According to Ojuku, he gave his support to IBB because he returned his fathers properties to him and not because of the help he gave to the victims of his war. As sad as that statement was, remember Ojuku commended Abacha for hanging Ken Saro Wiwa-was among the first to travel to PHC to congratulate Amaechi after romancing with Odili.Ojuku went cap in hand begging the federal authorities to pay him his retirement benefits which he collected, without giving a dime to the amputees who stood by him during the biafran war.he has never won elections in his own backyard-I often wonder how such a shaky, unstable personality was able to fool an entire region.Chukumerije thanked IBB for cancelling the june 12 election-ogbulafor not yet time for jonah-yet abiola won-with votes from plateau state. - deri
