      The Diplomats Diplomat. Infinitely wise and intelligent. Generous with his wit, laughter and eclectic knowledge. Seasoned diplomat, exceedingly driven and humble as well. Admired by colleagues worldwide. Grounded by family and intimate knowledge and service of God.

It is an honour and priviledge to call you a colleague, a brother and a friend. The Nigerian Foreign Service is poorer by your demise. Nigeria has lost one of its shining stars.

Nwannem, rest in peace in the bosom of the Lord. And may God grant members of your family the fortitude to bear this "irreparable senseless" loss.

We met several times in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs before my departure to london in 2008. He kept encouraging me, giving me pieces of very useful advice. So sad to hear of the loss. Happy and proud to hear that you gave your talents to the service of our Lord. Wished I had time to talk to you before your departure.

Your legacies live on.

The first time I met Okey Anigbogu was early in 2009, albeit briefly, at the monthly meeting of the Torch Bearers' Society of the All Saints' Anglican Church, Wuse, Abuja by which time he was an ordained priest. He struck me as a smiling and cheerful gentleman. 

The last time we were together was on Tuesday, 8 December 2009 again at the Retreat of the Torch Bearers' Society. That Retreat was followed by the 25th Anniversary of the Society on Sunday, 13 December 2009.

At that Retreat, Okey prayed for members and their families, the Church and the Nation. He was indeed a man of God full of prayers. Nobody could imagine that you'll be gone so soon. It's just too soon to have left us. It's so soon, but we take consolation in the truth that God knows best.

May the good LORD send the promised Comforter to the lovely family you've left behind, relations, friends, colleagues, members  of the Torch Bearers' Society, and many others who will sorely miss you and who are grieving over your death. The vacuum you've left would be too difficult to fill.

May your gentle soul Rest-In-Peace on the bosom of our LORD Jesus Christ until we all meet on the Easter morn to part no more.

tose of us who were opportuned to have worked with you will remember the calm smile and readiness to learn.


I was saddened to hear the demise of a Brother, a Friend, a hardworking Gentleman and a dedicated Family man Mr. Okey Anigbogu.  Okey has been a very good friend since I got to know him. We have been close until I left Nigeria to further my Education in USA and fortunately he was posted to New york on his United Nations assignment. He called me in Dallas and immediately I invited him to visit. He stayed with me for about a week for familiarization of the Country USA. It was interesting to learn that he married from my Village, to Mrs Ngozi Anigbogu (Nee Oguchi). Our relationship got stronger than ever. Even after his stay in New york I always visit him each time I come to Nigeria or land at Abuja.


The last time we were together was in 2006, during the Funeral ceremony of Late  Chief (Engineer) Dan. Nzelu. We sat close to each other and talked. Okey was the same honest gentleman that I knew and making good progress in life. I was not surprised to learn that he had been ordained a priest at the Church.  God who am I to question you why this honest gentleman should leave us like this. You know the best for all of us.  i pray that his Wife and Children will continue getting favour from you. Also to his family and relatives, May you console them and give them strength to go through this moment of sorrow. May Okey's soul rest in your bosom  forever Amen.
