ICHEOKU says there is a female leader in Germany, another one in Britain; so lets get the French one. That way the three major countries across the pond would be on the same gendered leadership platform. Lets empower another woman, elect Mademoiselle Marine Le Pen president of France. She is exactly what the doctor ordered for a France in dire straits and in need of quick recovery from extreme Islamists terrorism. ICHEOKU says make France great again, Vote Le Pen. Help the French recover their homeland, Vote Le Pen. I am ICHEOKU and I approve of this message.

“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)


Icheoku says regrettably his Vice President Osibanjo, a lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, is fidgeting around, while the president is wrecking havoc to Nigeria's hard fought democracy. Icheoku says by flagrantly disobeying court's orders, the president is doing grave damage to the very foundation on which every democracy is based. Osibanjo, Icheoku says defend your honor as a servant of the law and tell your boss that he has no choice in the matter of releasing detainees who have been granted bail.


Icheoku says the more they hold him, the bigger, the better and the larger he becomes; and more resolved on his quest for an independent homeland of Biafra. A thinking government of Nigeria would let him go and just monitor his activities if they have the time. Icheoku calls on President Muhammadu Buhari and his advisers to let Nnamdi Kanu go, moreso now that two courts of competent jurisdictions have granted him bail, one unconditionally.

Icheoku says the death of the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla named Harambe was avoidable and regrettable; as gorillas have been known throughout the world to protect little ones who pay unscheduled visits to their enclosures. Like humans, they usually quickly respond and rush to the rescue of little ones in danger. Why the decision-makers in Cincinnati Zoo rushed to kill the 450 silver-back Harambe defies every logical imagination. A more well rounded Zoo minders, would have explored other ways of retrieving the child including using water jets or cannons to hose off the gorilla, using extra dose tranquilizer, stun guns, distractive toys, tasers, rappelling rescuers or even a helicopter noise to scare off the gorilla. 

But regrettably none of these non lethal options were explored, leading to the quick rush to take the life of a harmless and adorable gorilla, who was only protecting a child whose careless parents left to his own devices, leading to his tumbling down a gorilla's enclosure. Instances abound of similar occurrences throughout the world from England to Australia to Russia to Chicago as well as other places where more thinking Zoo officials, rescued children similarly exposed to possible danger but without taking lethal action culminating in the death of such a animal. 

But be that as it may and in as much as no amount of condemnation or blame game would bring back the lost life, Icheoku says whoever had the custody and care of the child when this incident happened, should be arrested immediately and prosecuted for child endangerment. How a little child, left under the care of an adult, in a zoo with variety of wild life, could easily escape their custodial sight and fell into a gorilla's enclosure, is beyond pale and calls for investigation. Such a custodian, in addition to prescribed punishment, should be fined heavily and made to pay the cost of replacement of another gorilla to the exhibit. 

Icheoku does not buy into any of the so far given explanation, including being saddled with too many children to care for. The duty to protect those children and keep them safe and away from possible harm and in a Zoo is imperative and inexcusable, regardless of their number. Further, the Zoo Director who made the fatal call to kill the endangered silver back, ought to and should resign his office, for rushing off to such avoidable end result. The child could have been rescued without necessarily killing the gorilla. But he did not do what is expected of him under the circumstance by exploring other less lethal options. 

He could have calmed down the atmosphere by asking everybody to quieten down in order not to further scare the already agitated wild animal. That way, the animal would not have had the need to escape with the child to avoid harm coming to him. Also the lame excuse that tranquilizer would have take time to work is also unacceptable as all the Zoo would have down was increase the doze and then waited the gorilla down. Lastly, the gorilla was not threatening the child nor was it in any way trying to harm or cause him any injury. Icheoku laments it was an irrational rush to take life of a such a beautiful majestic silver back and it is indeed regrettable. What a shame to the Cincinnati Zoo director that made call and ordered Harambe, the gorilla, to be executed.
