    Dike and Igbo warrior has gone. Nwannemoma, a man I truly loved as a brother!

    How many of us like you are left to carry on from where you stopped?

    You spoke for Ndigbo with an unyielding velvet voice.
    You wrote for Ndigbo with an unwavering mighty pen.

    Your cutting edge submissions left so many of us elated when the voiceless and downtrodden are being knocked down.

    You gave us strength, comfort and soothing companionship throughout our short journey.

    Our hearts are heavy with relentless heat of emptiness.

    Now you have gone, Alaigbo will never be the same without you.

    Nwokeoma, la nu udo!

    May God Almighty accept your soul in heaven in Jesus name.
