I Still Can't Believe Cops Killed My Cousin!

Last Update: October 08, 2018

I feel like I'm dreaming...I can't believe Chinedu is gone (All the way to the right in green)

I still can't comprehend how and why this happended, and of course the investigation is still in the early stages and answers won't here anytime soon.

I have been struggling to do anything and my focus is lacking, all I can think of is the fact that my cousin is gone and know one saw it coming.

This post is one way I'm trying to release the frustration, anger, and sadness I'm feeling at the moment. I am having a hard time putting this together.

I wanted to let my WA family know what is going on with me and why I have been gone for days without even logging on.

The Funeral arrangements are getting worked out at his time, I am trying to get all my tears out before the day comes so I can be strong for my family.

It feels like what I have been watching on TV has now impacted me and my family first hand. The sad part is that my aunt who lost her son was watching the news, saw the story and was praying for the mom of the victim. Not knowing she was praying for herself :-(

I pray that my cousin Chinedu Valentine Okobi didn't die for nothing and justice is served, we have all seen stories like this way too many times. Please pray for me and my family in this time of sorrow.

Best

Jmihedji, I am so sorry for your loss. Though I will never know what it feels like, really. And I pray to the Lord that I never find out.

Going through mourning is very important, so give yourself time. Reflext after that in what good can and will come from his death and that it won't be in vain.

You can make it not in vain if perhaps you form some sort of organization in his name. One that can be used to create awareness and purpose where people can unite and vow to stop this madness. There is strength in numbers and that is power.

Also, in a few days we will all be able to use the most powerful weapon there is. Voting! Lets blow the horn for all to hear this is the time to act!

Great success in all you do!

I will certainly pray for you and your family and especially for your dear auntie.

Losing a family member is always sad. Losing them through violence or anything involving weapons is something else I suppose.

In times like this, I find comfort in God's company. Amazing power and peace can come from Him when we truly get to know Him and our faith has taken us to the point where we truly believe.

I am so sorry for you and your family! I will be praying for you! I have no words that will ease your pain, I only hope you find the strength that is within you to go on. Love him, remember him, and honor him by living your best life. He will always be with you as long as you hold him in your heart. If justice does not prevail, Karma will. Your cousin did not die in vain. The universe keeps score.

Truly am sorry for your loss and my deepest sympathies and condolences to your family. There's nothing really I can write to make your situation better. All I'm going to say is it's ok to cry. I lost my father a couple of weeks before my birthday and a few weeks before I gave birth to my baby boy this year. I did something similar.. cried and cried then put on a brave face for my family only to realise later it broke me even more. It's ok to be a mess and it's ok take time away. We all deal with these situations in our own way. Things like this business will always be here, can always start a new, can always be left til you're ready to come back. With family it's just not the same. I know you will find comfort within your family and that you'll find a way to help cope with your loss. Prayers and love for you all at this time.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate you sharing your experience and I hope you are doing better considering everything you lost. I know that It will take time to get over the sadness, and like you said I keep on finding positive things to hold on to. It is not easy to remember the good times and not breakdown because you know that there will be no more new ones to create with him. My mind is foggy at the moment but I know this incident will make me have a bran new outlook on life and force me to make the best of while I still can. Thanks again for your kind words.

Hi Jefrey,

I can’t even imagine what you are going through, all I know is that death is so cruel and painful when it strikes. Be assured of my prayers at such a time as this. I hope justice will take its course soonest possible.

Paul.
