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.

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.





"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


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

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

"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)


ONLY THE POOR WISH THEY HAD STUFF?

“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.

NNAMDI KANU, THE MAKING OF A LEADER.

Icheoku says without meaning to, the Federal Government of Nigeria has successfully made a leader out of the former pirate radio broadcaster of Radio Biafra. An unintended consequence of some sort, now, the formerly little known or rather unknown quantum called Nnamdi Kanu has now morphed into a widely visible and recognizable personality and the new face of Biafra. 

Unlike other previously intending usurpers of that title, his case is quite different. His message and vision is resonating with the people as a sentiment widely shared by many, especially the youths of the region, admitted so many people would rather not publicly voice their true feelings. By sacrificing for a cause, admitted unintentionally, as he never knew that  security agencies will come after him that very fateful Sunday morning following his routine breezing into Nigeria; the people are beginning to believe again that finally someone is ready to provide the much needed leadership of and for the region and that someone is prepared to pay dearly for it. Unlike the great pretenders of yore who shout until settled by Abuja, this guy seemingly is genuinely honed into the cause; admitted it will be a tall order accomplishing it. 

Now the region have risen to listen and cheer him on and they have been demonstrating this fervor for quite some time now following his incarceration. Icheoku says exactly how leaders are made, they rise up with or are thrown up by occasions. To the clarion call who shall I send, they usually thrust themselves up and respond, here I am send me. With emotions running high, they easily convince the people that their cause is their command as they are fully invested in their struggle and are ready to suffer on their behalf. Nnamdi Kanu has perfectly provided and positioned himself for this arduous assignment and he is now seen worthy of the trust of the people. A regional Biafran people, long in search of someone to stand up as their alter-ego and lead them has finally seen the light and they are excitedly tuned in. 

Icheoku says Nnamdi Kanu has earned the right to be now called a leader of Biafra. Like the people of Israel in want of a messiah, Icheoku says Nnamdi Kanu perfectly fits this tab of the messiah to save and lead Biafrans to the promised land of no marginalization and no discrimination and a land freed of the suffocating repression of a people in their very own country that is Nigeria. He is youthful, he is very eloquently spoken like the Biafra alter ego Odimegwu Ojukwu and he is very passionate about his desire to set Biafra free. He represents hope, aspiration, optimism and everything missing previously in other various persons who have attempted in the past to fill the large shoes left behind by Ojukwu. So if, Ndigbo should rally around this guy in their effort to become equal citizens, treated fairly in their country. 

Like with other such historical figures, Nnamdi Kanu has now towed the path of Nelson Mandela who suffered long incarceration in Roben Island in order to purchase freedom for South Africa from a very repressive racist apartheid regime. Like Myammar President-elect Aung Sui Chi who suffered a lengthy detention in the hands of her country's junta, Nnamdi Kanu is now enroute suffering long incarceration as a bargain for his heart's delight, a Biafra nation come to fruition. Martin Luther King suffered severely to win Civil Rights for Black Americans and so is the history of the world replete with such committed individuals who refused to take it any longer and stood up to do something about what they consider a man's inhumanity to a fellow man. 

They rose up at the hour of great need to say not any more; they refused to keep silent faced with tyranny; they were not afraid anymore to confront what must be confronted and they spoke truth to power. Nnamdi Kanu did all that and he is no more afraid, a key weapon in setting oneself truly free - NOT AFRAID ANYMORE. The authorities will try to break him; they will try to make him foreswear his commitment. Like Nelson Mandela, they will offer him a get out of jail card on the condition that he drops  his cause. But how he responds to the overture will truly determine if he has finally indeed crossed the threshold and attained the stature of leader of the people of Biafra. 

So far so good as the guy is holding up well and having survived the initial first few nights in jail, he has passed the crucial test; now every other night no matter how many, will simply be just another night. Cells and prison custody could be overwhelming, but it is more of a mental encumbrance than the physical confinement. Some of us during our student days activism (students riots) were severally detained and it is survivable; and not as horrifying as it is imagined. But the key is the will to survive and believing in the greatness of the cause for which one is fighting. 

Icheoku says unlike MKO Abiola who took to his heels and went into hiding when he should have stood up and confronted Sani Abacha to reclaim his mandate, Nnamdi Kanu did not run away from Nigeria but frequently visited Nigeria, aware of the danger of being arrested for his viewpoints and activism for a sovereign state of Biafra. He faced down his traducers and is now suffering the inconvenience that follows such rearing of head. But like with every dusk which is followed by a dawn, Nnamdi Kanu will emerge someday, no matter how long his incarceration, as somebody different from who he was when he was first arrested. His cause is a widely, generally applauded cause; admitted so many are too afraid to say something in support but privately hailing him as a hero, the man of the moment of Biafra. 

His admiration and fan base is organically generated, including market women and grandfathers and is not orchestrated nor contrived by any confining association. He did not campaign for the teaming support which followed his arrest and detention. Nnamdi Kanu has now shown to the people of Biafra, by taking one on the cheek for the people and on their behalf, that he can take some pain and suffering for them. This selfless sacrifice is what endures people to the hearts of the people and the torrent of agitators who have been responding in kind, in show of support, tells it all. The throng of humanity that besieged the Abuja trial venue of the arrested Radio Biafra director Nnamdi Kanu is a testimony that the people are in bed with him and will do his bidding should shove come to push. At last, Biafra has a leader, although emergent, in Nnamdi Kanu; Icheoku says congratulations NK and may God guide and protect you through your struggles IJN.
