I would like to give my sincere condolences to the family of Nick, a great man and friend will be truly missed by all. May his spirit live forever. I had the great pleasure of working with Nick at a major investment bank in the City of London and will forever cherish the times we spent together.
Nick always had a smile and time for me, no matter what issues he may have had himself. Although the work was at times very stressful, Nick made light of this by raising your spirits, giving good advice and generally being fun and knowledgeable guy to be around. He had that smile that instantly made you forget your problems. A man amongst men and a friend when needed. Nick, although our time together was short, I will remember you always. Thanks for helping me "stay focused man!" May your soul rest in eternal peace. Your friend, Steve Henry.

It broke my heart. The death of Nick broke my heart. This is a man I am proud to call my friend. Where shall I start? How do I describe Nick? He loved life. Nick is generous guy who calls it as he sees it. A day out with Nick is a day never to be forgotten. The last I saw Nick in person was during Agbor Cultural Day in London late 2009. He called me weeks before the activity and without much ado I took up the task he gave me. What pains me is that he actually gave me a message to Agbor men and women present but I thought there will be time to deliver that message and I did not because of time. My other pain is that on that day I breezed in and out of London from airport to the venue and back to airport. The usual hurry. Nick wanted us to sit down as soon as the hall was cleared but I was in a hurry and we never sat. I thought we had time. I had no reason to believe that was the last time. For God’s sake Nick is about 45 years old and life was only starting. How do I describe Nick? Knowing him is a previlege.

Why is death so wicked? my phone rang at about 11.45pm only to be told that Nick died some hours ago, the only thing that came out from me was no, no in the sense that the Nick I know won’t die so young. What an unfortunate and heart breaking information. Nick, this journey you decided to embark will put you on the bossom of the lord, we mourn with the family you left behind. We will continue to beg God for his infinite mercies as you ride on your journey home. God, we give you thanks for receiving your son Nick. Nick we say good bye.

"Death looks for a happy home where it can turn happiness into grief to ensure that for days the household will have nothing to discuss but the blow of death" – Dele Giwa (1980) This is exactly what it hasdone has done to the family of Nick and we all who happensto know him. Death has turn our happiness after the Christmas and new year celebrations into grief and for days, months and years to come, we will have no other things to discuss other than the death of our good friend. My family and I are grieved beyond words to read of your death. I still look forward to pick up the telephone to hear you say, "O Boy, that news about me is wrong, it is was a mistaken identity, I travelled and people thought that am dead, no am still alive, I dey kampe". If the news of your death is true, we shall see again during the resurections of the death , then, we shall ask you why you decided to live so soon without a word of goodbye.

It’s with deep sense of sorrow that I recived the shocking news of the death of my bossom friend, brother and colleague, Mr.Nick Momah.My heart goes out to the lovely wife, Helen and the beautiful children. Nick was a fantastic guy, a true friend who was always there for everybody. I remember during the formation of Agbor Men in U.K, the efforts and zeal that he put in to make sure it was a success. Well, what can I say more. It’s still unbealievable, it’s like a nightmare that Nick could leave us just like that.We are in total shock. May his gentle and kind soul rest in perfect peace until we meet to part no more.

sadly I did not know Mr. Mormah, but one day while surfing the WEB, I
stumbled onto a beautiful Agbor song … a theme song played on the AMA
of UK Website. To hear that the person responsible for the formation of
that organization is deceased breaks my heart, Where will another Mr.
Mormah be found to carry on his work of such beauty? My condolence go
out to his entire family and members of The Agbor Men Association of
UK. You should try to carry out his legacy for the betterment of all
mankind. Thank you ‘Nick’ for touching my heart even though I have
never known you in life, but when I viewed your handiwork …"part
founder of The Agbor Men’s Association of UK" I am proud to be of Agbor
descent. :- Savannah, GA, USA
