This is what nobility and humility is all about.
Ihedioha and Ikenga Imo have really shown that they are on the side of the law and not law breakers.
Their humility in honouring this faulty and fratricidal invitation goes a long way to telling Ndi Imo that, “Onye aka ya di ocha, egwu anaghi atu ya”.
