His death came as a rude shock to all. He was murdered in the heat of the 2019 Election Campaigns on the East-West Road. Though he lived a relatively short life, EFCC Chiko was a trustworthy politician. He was reliable and was always a promoter of the New Rivers agenda.
EFCC Chiko worked very hard for the PDP. He was a grassroots politician that commanded a huge following in his Ward and Local Government. Little wonder, he was voted as the councillor of his Ward and later emerged as the Leader of Ahoada West Local Government Legislative Assembly.
Ekele Fynface Cohen Chikobi (EFCC) was a fine gentleman, reliable, courageous and committed to the development of Rivers State. Every step of the way, he was prepared to go the extra mile to promote Rivers State.
He was one of the heroes of the 2019 General Elections in Rivers State. One of those who stood with Governor Wike and the PDP, to promote the ideals of New Rivers State, despite the determined attempts to de-market the state.
The gathering of Rivers people at Obi Wali Cultural Centre on Sunday, 11th August 2019 for a Service Of Songs And Unveiling of the Educational Trust Fund in honour of Late Councillor (Engr) Ekele Fynface Cohen Chikobi (EFCC) is a step in the right direction.
Local Government Chairmen, Lawmakers, Councillors, PDP Stalwarts, youths and social Media influencers gathered in one Accord to honour a man who paid his dues and made great contributions to the growth of Rivers State.
With the testimonies coming from across the divide on EFCC Chiko, it is obvious that he has left exemplary legacies behind. He has made his mark and he proved himself worthy of celebration.
When the history of New Rivers State is written, EFCC Chiko will occupy a key spot. Good Night EFCC Chiko.
