What can we say about this life? Just few days ago, precisley on 14th of July, 2018, Thomas Inakwu was in Oju town in Oju Local Government Area of Benue State to grace the occasion of the coronation of Adirahu Igede. The coronation ceremony was held on 14th July. Inakwu sent the congratulatory message below to the paramount ruler, His Royal Highness, Chief Oga Ero. He was physically there and fully participated in the celebration as President of ‘Omi Igede’ (Igede Voice), Lagos Branch.
Hmm! Few days after returning to Lagos, Tom Inakwu decided out of love for his friend, James Ijere who lost his aged father to embark on another journey on Wednesday, 8th August to Oju to join the bereaved to pay last respect to the father. It was his last journey on this wicked world. The vehicle he chartered to convey him and two others had an accident at 9th Mile town, Enugu State on Wednesday, August 8, 2018. Tom Inakwu and one beautiful lady Victoria Oluhi died in the accident, while two people including the driver sustained injuries.
We in the Mighty Voice join other good friends of the deceased to pray for the repose of their souls. It’s indeed the sunset at noon. We take consolation in the fact that we shall all leave this wicked world in death or in rapture…no one shall live here forever. Rest on until we meet again.
