Tears and pains grip the Indigenous People of Biafra Owerri Senatorial Zone and the entirety of Imo State on the First day of January, 2020 as the news of the death of a Hardcore reached Family member.

A day meant for New Year Celebration as most people all over the world practice, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Imo State lost a Hardcore, a Lion and a Philanthropist by name Late Mazi Chijioke Nna (Father G). Before his death, he has given and/or lost virtually all his possession to the just struggle of the Biafra Restoration Project. He was the Deputy Leader of Biafran Elders in Council in Imo State. In 2015, the man's house in Owerri at Bishop Cyril Anyanwu Street was pulled down and everything he had inside the house was destroyed by the caterpillar or bulldozer. One Mr. Chuks Osuji sent for that mission using Imo State Government as disguise, because he had information that the house was used for IPOB meetings. After proper investigation, we found out that Imo State Government had no connection to the destruction of the properties.

This ugly incident didn't deter him, he still gave out a big hall he was managing for IPOB Imo State meeting free of charge, that hall has been used for several high-profile meetings in Imo State. The unjust destruction of his properties was heard by a competent court of jurisdiction and Mazi Chijioke won the case. Because of how evil Nigerians are, the man that destroyed the properties sued Mazi Chijioke to court again and sued Mazi Chijioke's children to a different court also on same matter, making it two court cases. At the very end of this fight, through the help of Chukwu Okike Abiama and the support of IPOB Imo State especially Owerri Senatorial Zone, Mazi Chijioke won the case again.

Late Mazi Chijioke Nna (Father G) had a heart full of gold, after he relocated to another property he was managing, he also called us (IPOB) in, we have used that place since 2016 as our Secretariat in Imo State, it was also used for our family meetings at unit, Zonal, LGA, Senatorial and State Levels; that same place was the exact place that Biafra Elders in Council had their National Meeting some time ago, and also housed IPOB Women all over Biafra Land when they marched in Owerri some time ago. This man has done so many things for the course of the restoration of Biafra free of charge but it's quite unfortunate that he died on the 1st day of January, 2020 after a serious illness. He died in Aladinma Hospital, IPOB Imo State family members paid off the remaining bills and convey his corpse to his Home Town in Okigwe for the burial proceedings.

He was a Biafran Jew and he kept the Laws of Elohim Chiukwu Okike Abiama. He directed us not to put his body in any mortuary and that we must bury him according to the Jewish traditions which he practiced. This made the State Coordinator Mazi Abraham Chukwumanpkam, Owerri Senatorial Coordinator Mazi Nwafor Onyekachi, South East Regional Coordinator and IPOB Family members to converge him on that same day, held a brief meeting, arranged and convey his corpse to his home and he was buried that same day (1st day of January, 2020). The final burial rite was slated for the 10th day of February, 2020.

If there's a man Imo State Indigenous People of Biafra can vouch for, then Late Mazi Chijioke Nna would be among. May his gentle soul rest in the bosom of Elohim Chiukwu Okike Abiama and give strength to his family to carry on.
