Nigerian civil society leader, Innocent Chukwuma is dead by iwaeda: 8:18am On Apr 04

One of Nigeria’s civil society leaders, Innocent Chukwuma, died Saturday evening in Lagos, according to close friends who indicated that he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, an aggressive cancer of the blood.

He was 55.

“With profound shock & sadness, I regret to inform you that Innocent Chukwuma passed away a few hours ago, in the evening of April 3. May his soul rest in peace,” announced Edetaen Ojo, a frontline freedom of expression advocate and executive director of the Media Rights Agenda, who was a friend of Mr Chukwuma.

Mr Chukwuma came to public attention first as a student union activist at the University of Nigeria, where he read religious studies in the early eighties when Nigerian students led relentless campaigns against military autocracy.

Upon graduation, he joined a cluster of young activists who came to bloom at the Civil Liberties Organisation (CLO), Nigeria’s first human rights organisation led for most of the nineties by Olisa Agbakoba, now a member of the velvet rank of the legal profession called Senior Advocates of Nigeria.

At CLO, Mr Chukwuma, a father of three daughters, one who graduated in law and was called to the bar last year, met people like Chidi Odinkalu, a lawyer, academic and former chairman of the Nigeria Human Rights Commission.

Mr Odinkalu remembered the departed civil society leader, Sunday morning, in an interview with PREMIUM TIMES, as a treasured companion and faithful friend. “I knew him for nearly 35 [and] I am grateful for the privilege,” Mr Odinkalu said, recalling that “In all things, as my late mum always said, we must learn to give thanks … he was a man of decency.”

He said Mr Chukwuma’s diagnosis only came through Friday night, and though he was booked to begin chemotherapy sessions Saturday night, Mr. Odinkalu remarked that his friend “passed before the needle could be inserted.”

Both of Mr Chukwuma’s parents died young. Friends say he was fastidious with matters of his health, going to great lengths to take care of a cardio-vascular degeneration and High Blood Pressure situation he managed with courage and seriousness. Both his parents were killed by cardio-vascular degeneration.

This death is something that should order our actions. No amount of money can prevent the inevitable; and the money is WORTHLESS to you when you are gone.
What will you be remembered for?
Will your named be blessed when mentioned or vice versa.

RIP Inoocent Chukwuma.

We recalled his participation in the various students and youth struggles against successive military dictatorships in the 1980s and 1990s.

In the process, he was arrested, harassed and even detained several times.
Yet, he never allowed himself to succumb to tyranny or be pressured into submissive and pliant silence.

He epitomized the true definition of the citizen; a patriot who was ever conscious of the fact that his life could not be complete or his humanity meaningful if he did not take an active interest in and join like minded fellow citizens in seeking always to promote the common good of his community and country.

This is one of the true activists we have in our country, not all the present babi ala activists fighting for their pockets.

REST in perfect peace Innocent.

Guy you need to masturbate more so you learn to talk less.

Get a mobile phone or laptop.

Log into redtube.com or if you have a preference, I suspect you like shemaletube.com

Get a lubricant of your choice. I sometimes use vaseline, sardine oil, olive oil, mayonnaise, tooth paste , pepsi , icing sugar etc

Now start the video of your choice then close your eyes and picture someone classy like Aisha buhari In a twosome with the babes in the por
Start with short strokes just at the cap of your penis then start working the shaft with long strokes

Then remember to breath in-between.. use ear phones for full audio effects

Remember never use tight strokes cause you may bruise yourself. Light strokes depending on the length of your penis

Then pause drink some fizzy drinks and change the video to another one

Preferably young secondary school girls trying to suck dick in a mouth to small to hold the penis ..

Then close your eyes and picture your friends hot girlfriend.

Then this time use faster strokes and.jigfle your balls sack while at it , remember don't squeeze too hard the trick is to find the sweet spot between pain and pleasure

Keep stroking till you feel.the tremor in your thighs and you explode and splurge your load all over the floor ...always tiles never nut on a rug it's hard to clean out .

Wipe yourself up and drink more fizzy drinks then relax and comeback on nairaland and read the nonsense you typed
