"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.


"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.



ICHEOKU says August 26 is the day history will be made as two of the world's most interesting athletes square off in the ring. Boxing champion Floyd MayWeather and mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, will fight on August 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. ICHEOKU says not in a position yet to place bet on who will win the fight. Salute


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 of 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 in 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


"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)


“I’m not that interested in material things. As long as I find a good bed that I can sleep in, that’s enough.” - Nicolas Berggruem, the homeless billionaire.

Professor Wole Soyinka in his 1972 locus classicus, "The Man Died," wrote:- "The man dies in him who keeps silent in the face of tyranny." Professor Chinua Achebe decided that his manliness shall not die. He refused to keep silent or be quietened down. As a man whose manhood is still alive, Professor Chinua Achebe has spoken out against the injustice that was meted out to the people of Biafra by two known Nigerian tyrants, Obafemi Awolowo and Yakubu Gowon. Why some people are chewing him out for chronicling facts of consequence which took place not too long ago for their memories to have faded or become somewhat too hazy for its recollection is simply beyond Icheoku's comprehension; except that evil thrives when good men chose to do nothing. Now those evil people are in addition, mad as hell that someone is finally speaking up and speaking out about a sordid Nigeria past which still haunts her till today. Thankfully the same Wole Soyinka also once said that history are kept for a reason that its actors may not later dispute what was recorded? 

Regrettably many of the apologists calling Professor Chinua Achebe out for his audacity in pointing an accusatory finger on the two devils - Awolowo and Gowon, in their sanctimonious adumbration, missed the salient point raised by Achebe in "There was a country", especially as it appertain to the two principal subjects being reproached. It was Awolowo and not the entire Yoruba race that was called out by Achebe in his Biafran war memoirs and so if there is any beef with anyone it is with Awolowo and not the entire Oduduwa clan. Awolowo was the sole perpetrator of the infra-dig which roils Achebe as well as millions of other Igbo people who were shafted during the Biafran war, as a result of crushing and inhumane policies put together and implemented to the letter by Obafemi Awolowo. Icheoku will not rehash all the cruelty dished out to the Igbo people by that human excrement, but suffice it that history books are brimming with them for those curious minded to feast on. What happened is not an ancient fiction but a very recent historical fact, al things considered since the Jewish people still talk about the holocaust and African Americans the slavery, so why not a mere forty plus year genocide of the Biafran people? 

Anyway Icheoku commends Professor Chinua Achebe for his bravery and audacity in calling a spade a spade by holding Awolowo responsible and accountable for the hand he dealt the people of Biafra, Achebe did this, fully aware that many of those herd-mentality plagued humans of the Southwest would come out swinging and charging at him for daring to call their deity out on his intransigence. Men like Chinua Achebe are very hard to come by and his latest work highly commendable; a matter made more pertinent because of his very advanced age and the fact that our other hero Odumegwu Ojukwu went to his grave with his memoirs, which he promised Nigerians but never had time to bring it out before he passed on. Icheoku hopes other actors, men and women with actual and true knowledge about what happened to Igbo people during that war of survival, shall stand up following in Achebe's footprint, eyeball the devil and tell the world their stories. The world needs to know and Biafran future generation needs to know their struggle which ensured their continued existence in Nigeria today despite the shenanigans of genocidal machinations of two rather war criminals, Yakubu Gowon and Obafemi Awolowo who wished Biafra a total extinction. But at last, they were not God and their both families are still paying the price for what these two animals did to women and children of Biafra. 

"There was a country" is a good historical account of the Biafran war and Icheoku strongly recommends it as a must read for all who want to understand the havoc wrecked on a people by two vicious, very mean and perverted fellows named Gowon and Awolowo. To their greatest chagrin, Biafran people survived their plots and are thriving well under the circumstance in a country which has stacked so much against them. Icheoku says who now laughs last - an Awolowo that none of his children is thriving in Yoruba Southwest political equation or a literally castrated Yakubu Gowon, who is now living on a semi self exile in London while his Berom people are being savagely murdered by the Hausa/Fulani herdsmen in Plateau state; while he stands aloof in hopeless bewilderment wondering what happened to his being part of Northern Nigeria? Gowon's people, the hunters of Biafrans are now themselves being brutally hunted by the Hausa/Fulani real owners of Northern Nigeria. That makes Yakubu Gowon and his people neither here nor there as they have strangely found out to their chagrin that they are not accepted Northern Nigeria bona fides as the real Northern Nigerians wants them wiped out and off their regional hemisphere? 

Icheoku says accursed be all those people or persons whose wicked plans caused untold harm to a people who did nothing to provoke a war or their planned extermination from Nigeria. People whose only offense was trying to defend themselves from an already begun extermination agenda in the hands of Gowon's led Nigerian vindictive Nigeria's army. Icheoku says to hell with Awolowo and all those his apostles who are completely blinded by their deaf and dumb follower-ship of him not to see the gist of the angst expressed in Achebe's "There was a country." That it was not an indictment of the entire Yoruba people, many of whom fought with and for Biafra, but a targeted pointing out of Awolowo for what he did during Biafran war to a people who did not deserve his darts. Ditto Yakubu Gowon and some of his then Middle-belt people who laid in wait and slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Igbo people as they made their way back to the East fleeing the world's worst known but rarely mentioned genocidal ethnic cleansing.
