Renowned Nigerian novelist and traditional ruler of Ndikelionwu, Anambra State, Eze (Professor) Vincent Chukwuemeka Ike, passed away on January 9, 2020 at the age of 88.

Eze Professor Ike, born on 28th April 1931, died at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi, Anambra State, after a brief illness.

Until his death, the renowned novelist, traditional ruler and administrator was the first indigenous registrar of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) and the traditional ruler of Ndikelionwu in Orumba South Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Survived by his wife, Professor Adebimpe Ike, the late monarch lost his only son, Prince Ositadinma Ike, on December 16, 2016.

His son, Ositadinma Ike, had married a daughter of a Benin Chief, Osarunwense Eghosa, but the marriage hit rock bottom during the last days of Ositadinma.

Though blessed with a son named after the late novelist, Chukwuemeka Junior, family disagreements meant the Ike family no longer had access to Chukwuemeka Jnr. after their son’s death.

The event was said to have saddened the writer who longed to see his only grandchild and heir.

There was a public appeal made by Mr Ike’s close friends who worried over Mr Ike’s broken heart to find the whereabouts of Chukwuemeka Jnr. Until his death, the boy’s whereabouts remained unknown.

Eze Professor Ike’s novels include Toads for Supper, The Naked Gods, The Potter’s Wheel, Sunset at Dawn, Expo ’77 and more.


Veteran Nigerian singer, Victor Olaiya, passed on at the age of 89 at exactly 12pm on Wednesday, February 12, 2020. The music maestro took his last breath at LUTH in Lagos state after a brief illness.

May their souls rest in perfect peace.
