He encouraged them to live  holy lives  that will lead to salvation which is most important for every soul.

Rev Igweaka described the late Akabuogu as a dedicated  member of St John’s Anglican Church, who lived a worthy life of emulation and advised people to overcome worldly lives e and gain heaven.

Son of the  late Chief Akabogu, Mr Romanus Akabogu said that they felt   the impact of their late father as he is no more on earth.

In his words, “everyone is answerable to death. I feel deeply pained that my father has gone beyond the earth. It is now my responsibility to ensure that the family is greatly taken care of. We would have celebrated him more, had it been he is still alive. He is a man of peace. I pray that God will grant his soul eternal rest”.

Chizoba Chidera Akabogu, also described  the late Chief  Akabogu (Onye Army) as a man who  loved to help people, especially in difficult times  and always stood by truth; adding that he was known  to be transparent even when people point fingers at him.

She noted that they had earlier lost the first daughter in the family, stressing that she is now in charge to carry everyone along like a mother does in a family.
