One of his friends, Obi Chibuike Charles paid tribute as he recalled his last moments with Izuchukwu.
“It’s very hard to type goodbye bro but God knows the best, Nigeria has happened to you and Nigeria has failed you.
“Full of life yesterday, today you’re being laid to mother earth. Your traditional marriage is coming up next tomorrow which is 7th.
“We planned on how to shut down as usual but they came yesterday and took your life forcefully…Rest well my brother”, Charles wrote.
