Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria, Arts & Culture

Nigeria's arts community recently lost a  theater artist and poet: Ify Agwu Omalicha. She died in an auto crash on her way to Abuja. Ayodele Olofintuade [1] laments that Ify death is a consequence of years of neglect and corruption that leaders of Nigeria “have perpetuated over and again”. As such denying Ify's son the joy of a mother's love. In this post, NigeriansTalk [2] collates some tributes from Ify's colleagues.
