"A TRIBUTE TO AN AMIABLE GENTLEMAN
Death what are u?
Are you a call?
Are you a solution?
Are you an Answer?
I received the unexpected news of your death with a great shock and deep sorrow in my hearts. We find it difficult to believe that you are no more. Though we had looked forward to more years of our interaction with you, we cannot question God since it pleased him to call you unto eternal rest at this time.
Oh, my amiable Chief Justice Chukwudifu Akunne Oputa, you are a man of peace, wisdom and truth. You had such a wonderful sense of humour. Your demise is a great loss to us.
I will never forget May 4th 2014 the day, the hands of death snatched you away from all of us. It happened like a dream and I was so confused because I never believed you will die.
May the good Lord grant you eternal rest in his bossom and may he divinely console your wife, children, grand children, and all of us who mourn you.
Adieu, Man of Peace!
Laa nke oma ezigbo nna m.

I enjoyed watching him partake in the Ogene festival in Ameshi,  obodo girigiri, and I can hardly believe that he is the same icon outisde such events or gatherings. Having met him several times in Oguta in the late 80s, I was blown away by his peaceful presence, simplicity and the aura he exudes. Ogbuagu noo di mma. Naa nke oma.

"My Hero Is Gone

JUSTICE CHUKWUDIFU OPUTA

The pride of Africa
You are the greatest gift to mankind
History is incomplete without you

Though this life is full of pain
But you turn it to gain
Even though earth is full of shame
You made it a fame

You conquer with words not with guns
You quench fire of hate with water of love
In bravery and humility you remain the world greatest fighter ever lived
You are the perfect instance of forgiveness and reconciliations

Generations unborn will be glad about you
An emblem of freedom you are Justice Chukwudifu Oputa
No human is perfect but you are above imperfections
Though I long to see you someday

But now you've gone
O my hero is gone but all hope is not gone
Cox I still see you lives on through your great deeds
I miss you and the world will be cold without you

Though you've moved from a hero to legend
But the world still misses you and will never forgets you
You are my hero but now you've gone
O the world will be so cold Justice Chukwudifu Oputa
My hero is gone

OKORO IJEOMA"
