What the people say….
Sir, whenever I read or remember the Genocide, I weep like a baby but my tears have changed nothing though we shall not stop pushing until things get changed. Count on me and my people on the Anniversary.
-Valentine Akajiofor, President-General, Igbo Community, Ogbomosho, Oyo State
Good day Sir, just stumbled on a piece by you – Doctors Without Borders and 50 Years of Biafra’s Ingratitude (Daily Sun, Wednesday, May 31, 2017). It really touched my heart and made me realise the importance of history. The problem with the youths, shouting Biafra! Biafra! is simply lack of knowledge of the ideology behind the struggle. Theirs is the material gain, not ideals; certainly people like Nnamdi Kanu cannot speak for. May God bless you, sir. I am not Igbo but I’m highly impressed. -Joe Wuya, Nasarawa State
Brother Emma Okocha, thank you so much for you are the only one standing to remind our people, the Igbo and other ethnics of then Eastern region, who suffered the dastardly inhuman atrocities foisted on Biafrans then. It is time South Easterners must show gratitude even in the face of marginalisation, we are enmeshed in, to those men and women, who, even so in face of dangers lost their lives, trying to correct the wickedness against humanity.
-Chief J.I. Nwafor
Ogwashi 7, the Isheagu regicide, Asaba and Igbanke was Igbo Akiri
For two consecutive weeks, your write up on the 50 years remembrance of “The Asaba Massacre” has been commendable and very touching. “The Master List, the Ogbeosowa killing field (Golgotha) and the (7) seven Onukwu brothers, as the young martyrs of Uganda before their wailing mother was abominable. Sons should bury their parents but the reverse was the case. Finally the book, “Blood on the Niger” is a must read. God have mercy.
Dear Mr. Okocha, I feel that I should let you know about this book, “Left to Tell” by Immaculatee Illibagiza, only family of six survivor of Rwandan Holocaust. In EWTN – TV conversation with Raymond Arroyo in “discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust, Where God Weeps, in Enduring The Spiritual Battle programme. Thanks. –T.P. Ekpenyong, Abuja
Happy to know that era of people concealing, denying or denouncing their Igboness because of their geographical location is fading out. Thanks to great efforts by people like you. Kindly let me know the date/dates of the upcoming Asaba Massacre remembrance. -Akobu Mbah, Enugu
They did it to bite off Biafra to Niger Delta, Obigbo to Oyigbo, Umu-Masi to Rumukushi, Usukpan Ena to Urugbam Enyi and this town was taken from Afikpo to Cross River State. So, I expect my Igbo people to apply my three Rs; Rethink, Return home and Reposition. How can you put your industries, houses and your family out of your God-given home, the Igbo land and expect success and safety.
–Michael I. Eze
Sir, I wonder if you saw the article in the Daily Sun of Monday, May 22, 2017 by one Mr. Omoigui Okauru, countering your earlier story on Ogbemudia and Igbanke. For me, he sounded unconvincing because I had heard your version years back after Ogbemudia took over at Ubulu-Uku, earlier days of Murtala coup 1975. What do you say?
-Emma Ndekwu, Port Harcourt
At a ripe age (100+), you will extend your glory to greater beyond. You have already printed your name in gold. World history will remember you and do you good. Almighty God will place your seat among the heavenly hosts. It’s very well with you. Well done.
-Engr. Mike M. Nwabuofu
Just finished reading “On The Niger” now. Thanks for enriching my mind today.

January 15, Fajuiyi and the Northern Christians
Our distinguished thinker, I do not know how to salute you. I just read yours of Daily Sun, January 18, 2017 – January 15, Fajuiyi and the Northern Christians. It is unprecedentedly excellent. Like other well informed Africans, you said that Kaduna Nzeogwu was ahead of his time and generation. It pains me that I did not see some of the Nigerian heroes, who had left this planet. –Prof Nzom
My name is Friday Uko, my official no is x7055. I retired from NN in August 2001. I served with Brig. Iweze at Liberia in the 90s. He is courageous and fearless. If the late President Samuel Doe had listened to his advice, he wouldn’t have been captured by Johnson.
08033085188 Lt. Commander Ituludiegwu will give you more on Oga Iweze, even CNN Christen Amampour will help with pictures and Mack Huband that used to work with Reuters. –Friday Uko
I just called you and you requested for my details. My name is Chike Ndigwe, I stay in Port Harcourt. So, tell me how I can access your literary work, which I have come to see as more authentic than the lies being churned out by the murderous coup d’etat Generals.
