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 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.
"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
"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.
"Our leader died in Germany"; with those words, an official with the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) confirmed the passing of the once Iraqi president and foremost Kurd, Jalal Talabani. He was 84 years old and died of brain hemorrhage and stroke. May his soul now rest. Adieu Big Man.
Icheoku says he stood on a car and shot two unarmed black occupants 15 times after twelve other officers had first riddled the same people with 122 bullets; yet Judge John O'Donnel found Officer Michael Brelo not guilty of anything. It is in Cleveland Ohio and those two black people killed were husband and wife Melissa Williams and Afredo Willaims. Icheoku says it is America and black life don't matter; just another black persons biting the dust, so what?
"I think those SEALS did exactly what they should have done and we need to shut up and move on about the realities of what happened in that building in Abottabad Pakistan." - Senator John Kerry, Democrat Massachusetts.
Icheoku is happy to learn that President Jonathan's state security services of Nigeria has released blogger Okey Ndibe's passport and by necessarily implication his person too. Once again, another triumph of peoples outcry over the whims of one emerging dictator. It shows that protest works; and like Flea Anikulapo Kuti's "I go shout o", Icheoku shall always shout each time any conscientious commentator is picked up by those Nigerian men of power!
There is no wisdom in feeding a lazy fat cat which would not care to chase away an intruding mouse. - Idowu Ohioze, Edmonton, Canada.
Her body was found in her Los Angeles home. TM was 54years old and in case you do not remember who she was - remember the song, Square Biz?
The Save Nigeria Group was the first to alert Nigeria of the bribery tendencies Nigeria's President Jonathan with his $50,000 attempted bribery of the group. Not fazed by the disclosure, President Jonathan has now put his sight on the leadership of the national assembly who he has decided to bribe with their acquisition of official government quarters as their own private homes. Icheoku screams holy macro and queries if the past leadership had acquired these properties, where the present leadership would have resided. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck and Nigerians must be wary of this aloof Niger Delta operative.
Charles Rangel violated House rules with financial misconduct, brought it discredit and accordingly will be punished; so ruled the ethics committee. Icheoku sympathizes with the 80 year old Democrat from Harlem New York but takes reservation at some of the lame excuses or defense he tried to come up with.
"The late president Umaru Yar ‘Adua served for one term and I will complete the second term and thereafter 'any person from any other other region can take over." - Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida speaking at Dutse, Jigawa State. Icheoku asks when did Babangida's previous stand that South East Igbos will produce the president in 2015 change to "any person from any other region." This toothy-monster of Minna cannot just be trusted and only an imbecile takes him for his words.
"The Americans should not occupy the entire Middle East...bomb wedding parties...annihilate an entire village just because one terrorist is hiding there." - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran. Icheoku says, then let them pony up the terrorist and save themselves from further raining down of bombs.
"The era of following a policy of carrot and stick is over. Even such words are insulting to nations. It's only good for cowboys and those of retarded people. Definitely it has no effect. They issued resolutions as talks were underway, still, we are ready for talks." Icheoku says what a case of a midget poking his finger at the world; and if sanctions are not working, why the sudden call for talks, after Iran had severally in the past and before the sanction rebuffed the world's every effort at making it see reason.
Look no further for the evidence that Nigeria's financial situation is dire and all her creditors should better be wary. Icheoku asks what does Nigeria have to show for the expenditure of $19.54billion just between 2007 and 2010; during which the Excess Crude Account (ECA) which held $20 billion in 2007 when Obasanjo left office has been depleted to a mere $460 as at August 2010. What band of thieves have descended on Nigeria in this way that its resources should be so cannibalized and with nothing to show for it, as trade-off. Please when will that army man who can clean the Augean stable, rise and hold these thieving mongrels accountable?
"I think it's just more sadness. Because I don't think you ever go into a marriage looking to get divorced. That's the thing. That's why it is sad." - Tiger Woods. Icheoku admonishes TW if only he had thought about this line before letting all those cheap bimbos sample his whiny; may be he would not now be the loneliest man out there left in the cold by a distraught ex-wife!
An armed robbery suspect who was injured during a police shoot-out in Abeokuta and who later offered some villagers N1.8million in protection fees for a safe house and/or passage is from Akpugo-Nkanu, Enugu State, Nigeria! The 20-year -old suspect, Onyeka Ani, was apprehended in Mawuko village, Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area, Abeokuta, Ogun State while trying to escape. Icheoku says, just when the people of Enugu State thought that the death of 'Ngeleomu' has ended this area's involvement in dare-devilry, here comes another one of its product, terrorizing his victims in far away Ogun State. What a shameful ambassador he is. A case of changing tides when a criminal was the one begging for mercy and offering monetary reward to avoid harm in a country where their ruthlessness and lack of compassion is beyond pale. He possibly deserved the vigilante justice for opening his mouth in this way and asking for what his kind will not give to the people - leniency!
“We are a country where our leaders tend to play tribal sentiments, saying I am from the South-South; I am from North-west; I am North, I am South, I am a Muslim and I am a Christian. All these are selfish motives to make people who probably cannot compete with others…to use these sentiments." - President Goodluck Jonathan. Icheoku adds, and what did the north even benefit from the 38 years their fellow mallams Balewa, Gowon, Muritala, Shagari, BUhari, Babangida, Abacha, Abdulsalam and Yar'Adua were in power? Yet some northern vampires led by the evil one IBB are once again stoking the northern tribal sentiments to wake up unneeded sentiments against the south. The north is even their own worst enemies - Muritala overthrew Gowon, Dimka killed Muritala, Buhari overthrew Shagari, Babangida overthrew Buhari, Babangida massacred Zango Kataf northerners, Babngida killed Mamman Vasta, Gideon Orkar etc; so which north are we talking about and for which this agitation now martured? Nothing, nada, zilch.
