It’s still like a dream. Ever since I got that phone call that Black Saturday, I’ve been wishing every morning when I woke up that it would just go away like all the bad dreams, but it’s like this is a reality. Are you really gone Chichi? Tell me. You were a great woman, a lioness, so brave and bold. You were my second mom and guardian, very protective and possessive of me and our little sister. You were our fighting partner.

It means that he left without saying goodbye to us, especially to me, his only brother. Because? This is very unfair. You loved me and treated me like your first child. You supervised my well-being as if I were a child. I will miss all of this now: those prophetic advice, affection, warnings and insights from him. You always see ahead and beyond the present. You were very vocal and direct and the world doesn’t like these.

You were a great lover and extremely generous. You were kind and friendly to a fault. You loved and even helped and defended your enemies. You fought for the oppressed. You trusted everyone. You trusted, you had dinner, you lived together and you always gave the best of them and I also think that was your weakness. But God blessed you because he who waters must be watered. You were always ready to share your little and latest with everyone. But who really is Princess Lillian?

Lillian Chichi was born on August 24, 1972 in the family of Onowu Prince and Mrs. Patrick Ifeanyi Agbo from Amechi, Awkunanaw in Enugu State. Her father was the immediate former traditional Prime Minister of the city. She is a double princess. Her paternal grandfather, Chief Mathias Agbo, was the traditional ruler of Amechi and her grandmother, Princess Uzo Nwanbanta Agbo, daughter of the famous chief Mbanta; the wealthy and influential paramount ruler of Amodu Awkunanaw. She traditionally received her name from Princess Uzo.

She attended WTC Elementary School and City Girls Enugu High School. She taught at various schools including Success Gate Primary and Secondary, Peace Academy School, Alagbado-Lagos, and was in the process of establishing her own school. She was also a teacher at the Fuente de Gloria Church, Alagbado. She loved education so much and pushed to establish a good school to raise good future leaders. In fact, she was already in the process of establishing her own school. This was her burning dream of hers. Will she ever fulfill this dream again? Perhaps, now, memorial school in her name?

She is survived by her husband, two sons, three daughters, one grandson, one daughter-in-law, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, mother-in-law, and others.

Now why did you leave at harvest time? Together we worked, together we cried, together we were betrayed, together we were despised and together we hoped. Why did you choose to go to the harvest point? I thought the bible said that those who plant should also reap? Who will reap with me all our efforts? Well, I thank God for you. You came, you saw and you conquered. As if you knew they were going to translate for you, a few days before leaving you gathered your children and read to them about forgiveness. You told them to forgive no matter how deep the offense.

Thank you for being my sister. Thanks for everything you did for us. Thank you for all your love and kindness. Thank you for standing up even when and where the bravest of men will give up. We are celebrating you. Chi baby you did good. I’m very proud of you. Go and rest in the bosom of the LORD, my little sister, Princess Lillian Chichi Duru (née Agbo). We will see again how our great God and Savior – Jesus appears. Until then, good night!

your brother gabriel
