"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)


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.


“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.

Icheoku says to the sorrowful mother, please take solace in that Mary suffered similar fate when the lifeless body of her son Jesus was laid on her arms. At 32 years, he was just about the same age as Jesus who died at 33 years. Fortunately enough though, he planted a tree of life in his three year old son and in him, he genetically lives on. To the bereaved father, please take heart since to die is to continue to live in the hearts of those who love you; admitted he is gone but he is gone to rest and would continue to live in your heart forever. Nedu Junior is there to try and fill the vacuum created with his exit. To his siblings, it is a great pain for your aching grieving hearts, but Nedu did not chose to die, his maker called him back home. To all his friends, he will be looking after you from above and spiritually be still in your midst. 

What a life that withered away at such a prime and you wonder why; except that we mortals cannot question the ways of the Lord. As faithful believers, we are bound to accept it as ordained because the man above is on top and always knows best. He puts us here on his volition and he freely recalls us as he pleases and sees fit, no questions asked. This is how smart people mourn the loss of a loved one, because what we cannot change, we always pray for the strength to accept and live with it. If medicine and science would have made him recover from his ailment, his loving parents, family and friends showed they were prepared to make it happen. But despite the best care money could buy and in some of the best hospitals in the world, Nedu succumbed to his illness and is now gone to be with the Lord. Nedu died of subdural hematoma.

As for all those asking why him; query, why not him? If not him, who? Everybody is going to die and lucky are those who have people left behind to conduct their funerals and mourn their loss. As believers in the scriptures, people do not die but merely recalled for further assignments. Icheoku believes that the good Lord have something else more special scheduled for Nedu, hence his summon back home for necessary redeployment. Icheoku wishes him well and prays that the good Lord will find him worthy of honor and deserving of a nicer placement. To the bereaved family and friends, please take heart and find strength in the scriptures and remember not to mourn like the faithless. Adieu Nedu.
