Great Iroko, may his soul rest in peace. A great loss to humanity and Umudioka Obunese

An iroko tree in the Mbonu dynasty has fallen life is vanity, and life is a shadow, thank God for a life well spent RIP Big Daddy

A big loss to the Awka Kingdom. What a colossal loss😭? May God console all those affected by this tragedy.
May his soul rest in peace. Amen.

Professor Mbonu

A big loss to Awka and Nigeria in General may his beautiful soul rest in peace.

An iroko has just fallen, and a great man has gone to be with his maker, Rip Prof. O.O Mbonu, may heaven accept your soul, Amen.

His legacies remain perfect as he joined his ancestors to the great beyond which is a natural place for deceased souls who keep what made them in their life. It is also home to the abstract figures.

He is a Patriarch and titan of our generations. Awka Kingdom was blessed to have him and to learn many valuable lessons from him when he was alive as a highly regarded principled figure.

The loss of this notable figure was a devastation.

A thought of comfort and condolences to the grieving family. Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. Heartfelt thoughts go out to you in this time of sorrow. I will be thinking of you in this moment of pain.

Remembering his wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts. May he rest in peace! A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven.
