Haa,i find it hard to believe Ikenna Ikenna Victor Onwusika of dengram C91 collapsed and died last night.
This is terrible and so hard to believe Ikenna is gone. Bikonuu,gone at what age? He was 50 not too long ago. A man I knew right from my primary school days and then I entered DMGS and met him there too.
He was never a bully as a senior,rather was a big brother and a friend to many of us behind then. He wasa prefect then as well.
When I entered University of Nigeria,Enugu Campus in 1995,he was already a third year law student and I continued the friendship with him there.
He was one of those that lured me into Rotoract club which he was the president and later I succeeded his predecessor in 1998.
Once in a while;we exchanged messages here on FB and WhatsApp and I never envisaged this would happen to this brilliant lawyer.
The question is this,what could have led to cardiac arrest and he was never on the big side? This is so scary and I am shocked!!!
Rest in Peace Victor,this is sad eziokwu
