    Eiyah brains like this were never utilised or were subjected to accept the wrongs of the elites in power

    May the soul of this giant of an intellectual rest in perfect peace. Esker was one of the authentic and recognisable faces of South-South until the clueless and his band of mediocres emerged to give the region a very bad name. To live in the hearts of those who love us is not to die.
