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.


ICHEOKU says in unison, Biafrans stretch out their hands in demand of freedom to self govern themselves. ICHEOKU says it is every man's right to self governance and in a Biafran Nation we stand. Give us Biafra - BIAEXIT. Ekene. Shalom. Salute.


ICHEOKU says they can break the body but they can never overwhelm the soul and the spirit lives on until victory is achieved. On this day May 30th, survivors of that pogrom supervised by the genocidal maniac Yakubu Jackal Gowon and their descendants show immense gratitude to those who fought to preserve our identity as an indigenous people; as well as all those who paid the supreme sacrifice that we may live freely as Indegenious People of Biafra . ICHEOKU says the nation of Biafra is proud for what you accomplished and on this day pays their gratitude. Aluta Continua !


"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.

“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.

Icheoku says President-elect Donald John Trump has not even been sworn in yet but he is already affecting changes in so many spheres including immigration. In addition to building the Great Wall of America, he promised to also remove immigrants who should not ordinarily be in the United States of America. These include immigrants who are in America illegally as well as those whose legal stay are somewhat questionable. It would seem that Nigerian Professor Wole Soyinka fell into this last category and decided to preemptively remove himself before Trump's men would strike and bundle him out of America. According to sources, the Professor of Literature and Nobel Prize Laureate, in fulfillment of his vow never to enter the United States of America again should Donald Trump win the presidency, has "thrown away" or rather destroyed his Green Card residency permit. 

Icheoku says if indeed it is true that Wole Soyinka has destroyed his Green card and thus technically, self-removed himself from the United States, it is one problem solved for the newly appointed immigration tzar, who will now have one less of an immigrant to worry about. But who is this Wole Soyinka to think that it should matter whether or not he entered the United States again and whether anyone will miss him anyway? Did he actually destroy his Green Card and if he did, does he have right to destroy a property which does not really belong to him but which belongs to the United States of America government? Why did he not publicize the destruction and why did he allegedly "throw it away" unceremoniously since it would have had more impact if done publicly; afterall his threat to never enter the United States was made publicly. Icheoku truly believes that Wole Soyinka did not destroy nor "throw away" his Green card and was merely posturing by stating so. First he needs the Green Card more than America will ever need or miss him if he actually removed himself from the country. So who hurts more if Wole Soyinka does not enter America anymore; Wole Soyinka of course and so in whose interest is it to maintain his residency eligibility, same Wole Soyinka.  

Woke Soyinka used to be the beloved of many Nigerians who loved him for being a stand-up guy until he started cavorting with some leprosy-ied Nigerians including invertebrate politicians whom he jumped into bed with. Suddenly the man who was once showing the light of way started speaking in bifurcated tongue, flip-flopping on issues and bold-facedily started telling untruths and becoming dodgy. A man who once wrote a treatise on why Buhari must never be elected president, suddenly somersault into an apostle and itinerant campaigner-advocate of elect Muhammadu Buhari president because he is the now messiah of Nigeria sent from On High. That this claim has since turned false is a testimony every living Nigerian is prepared to give because Wole Soyinka has since been proved to have lied by vouching for Buhari. The same Wole Soyinka also accepted a N80 million Naira 80th birthday bash from a government which was owing its workers several months arrears of payment; again questioning his wisdom or rather when he sold his soul to the devil or mortgaged his conscience to the oppressors of Nigeria. 

That Wole Soyinka has become a totally different person in recent years is a fact; suggesting that the man in him died a sudden death and that what is now left of him is but a ghostly apparition of his former brave self. This is a man who once entered into a radio station armed with a pistol to try to effect a change. A man who once went to prison because of his convictions during the Biafra war and who has been on the side of the oppressed peoples of Nigeria, battling the inept leadership that have held the country in a stranglehold. But without any warning signs whatsoever, he decided to join up with the same people he has been fighting all his adult life against and you wonder what was his purchased price? Icheoku says to still call a man who has stood silent in the face of the tyranny that is President Muhammadu Buhari's presidency a man, is a great disservice and dishonor to the word, manhood. So what happened to our dear Wole Soyinka and why has he changed into this new wimpy condoner of impunity, having remained silent ever since the despotism of Muhammadu Buhari crept into the land. The same noticed change in personality is equally to blame for his outburst over inquiries about his Green Card by people who want to know if he has acted on his promise.

Icheoku says like those who fetched ants infested firewood who should not complain when lizards pay them a visit, Wole Soyinka brought every inquiry about his Green Card unto himself; because if he never uttered those words, nobody would have followed him up, trying to ascertain if he carried it through. Therefore, castigating such inquirers is a disservice to Wole Soyinka himself because that is exactly what he would have done were the shoes to be on the other foot. Further, he overreached himself calling people names and once again threatening to also leave Nigeria never to come back; but where he wants to go from Nigeria he did not disclose? Icheoku says if Wole Soyinka leaves Nigeria, no one would miss him either; just like no one would miss him if he never entered the United States of America again. In this world we live in, no one is that important or indispensable, no matter how highly placed or how important he or she thinks of self. The only attempt at fathoming any possible explanation that somewhat makes sense is that something has changed or is changing in Wole Soyinka's neurons. At his very advanced age of 83 years old, it is possible that the once very erudite professor is beginning to show early signs of old age related infirmities of the mind. It is possible that his increasingly weird talks and actions are early signs of Alzheimer's disease including dementia; all suggesting a depreciation of his lucidity of mind? 

Query:- why would any sane person so publicly threaten to destroy his Green Card and regardless of how riled up he may have been with the possibility of a Donald Trump's presidency, what is in it for him that he should vow never to enter America again? Did he think his threat was going to change or effect any vote; or that anyone was going to beg him to please not leave or enter or remain in America? At least, he could have recused himself from America and never come back until the end of Trump's presidency if he wanted; but without making it public as no one has ever been barred or stopped from leaving America if they want. As with the saying beware of what you wish for, Donald Trump has won the election and Wole Soyinka was asked if he has carried out his threat to destroy his Green Card and then his outburst. Icheoku says his outburst is simply inexplicable, unwarranted and uncalled for. If Wole Soyinka did not mouth off his intention to destroy his Green Card, nobody would have known about it nor border him by following up to know if he has performed his bargained. 

It was a voluntarily made threat which condition arose with Trump's winning the presidency, it is therefore incumbent on him now to perform as any honorable person would; admitted he is not under any obligation to so do. But we are talking about honor and a Professor and Nobel Prize winner is supposed to be honorable, otherwise how does anybody take him seriously going forward. Icheoku says Woke Soyinka owes it to the world, including Americans and Nigerians, the destruction of his Green Card and hereby calls on him to destroy his Green Card forthwith. To just chicken out or do otherwise or lie about destroying it when he did not in fact actually destroy it and/or there is no evidence of its actual destruction, will only make Wole Soyinka a lilly-livered boastful individual, who runs his mouth just for the heck of running his mouth. Be that as it may, it is safe to assume that Wole Soyinka made the boastful threat just to remain in the limelight of relevance during the last American presidential election and is not a man of honor who puts his money where his mouth is. So paraphrasing President Ronald Reagan, Icheoku says, Wole Soyinka tear up your Green Card or forever remain a shriveling loudmouth.
