Billionaire businessman, Obi Cubana has reacted to the emotional tribute of Chidiogo, daughter of the murdered Dr Chike Akunyili.

Naija News reports that Chike Akunyili, husband to late former Information Minister, Prof. Dora Akunyili was murdered by the gunmen at Umuoji in Idemili North LGA of Anambra State on Tuesday evening.

Taking to her Facebook page to mourn, Chidiogo shared various pictures of herself and Chike Akunyili recounting her last conversation with her father.

She also disclosed how he bemoaned the current situation of the country before his brutal murder.

She said; “Ubuntu – ‘I am because we are’. If this holds true, then the man who pulled the trigger twice is because we are — his anger, the injustice of his action, and his violence are because it is mirrored in the world around him.

“If ‘I am because we are’, then my father’s pain gasping for breath in his last moments is because we as a nation are in pain.”

Chidiogo then detailed the last conversation she had with her dad saying, “I spoke to him on Monday, just a day before another human willfully took his life.

“He asked after his newest grandchild who he had given the name Mmesomma — ‘the one who does only beautiful things’. And above all, he bemoaned the state of things in the country.

“As a surgeon, always frontline with the people’s suffering, he shared just how visible the current hardships were. Patients, he said, were no longer able to pay for care. It didn’t help, he added, that no one was safe.

“I asked him if he was being careful and he assured me that he was, going on to add that he never went out anymore and was sure to be home by 6. Convinced, I reminded him to be even more careful and to take care of himself.

“If Ubuntu holds true, that he is — a son, a beloved father, a loving grandfather, a healer, a Papal knight, Agbalanze of Agulu, a friend, a brother, and so much more — then this is an invitation for us to find the good in is us.

“We can choose a different path. This current one leads to more senseless death and pain for one too many.”

Reacting to the emotional post, Obi Cubana consoled Chidiogo. He wrote;It is well. Rest in the Lord Dr!”
