“It’s very hard to type goodbye bro but God knows the best, Nigeria has happened to you and Nigeria has failed you bro,” Obi wrote.

“Full of life yesterday, today you’re been laid to mother earth. my bro I just wish you can wake and tell me it’s all a prank because we have many things to achieve together, Ichie I’m sorry that yesterday when unknown gunmen attacked us I couldn’t do anything.

“We have survived many things together and they choose to take you away from me, your traditional marriage is coming up next tomorrow which is 7th and we have planned on how to shut down as usual but they came yesterday and took your life forcefully.

What more can I say to a brother and friend like you at this point if not farewell. Turnfire I’ll choose you over and over and over again because you’re too good to be a human. Rest well my brother till we meet to part no more. I love you bro forever.
