Members of the Agbor Men Association based in the United Kingdom, gathered in their hundreds to mourn their late President,
Nicholas Ndidi Mormah. Mr. Mormah who was fondly called Nick, died on January 20, 2010, in London, aged 45 years.
A Requiem Mass was offered for the repose of his soul, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Kilburn in Northwest London, on Friday, March 12, 2010.
At the Mass, the First Reading was taken from the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 25, and Verses 8-9 and Chapter 26, Verses 3-4. It was read by his son, Nicholas Nkemcho Mormah while the Second Reading was taken from the Book of Romans, Chapter 8, Verses 31-39 and was read by Dr. John Nwokeoha. The Gospel was taken from the Gospel of Saint John, Chapter 11, and Verses 17-27.
In his Homily, the officiating Priest, Reverend Father ANGELO, described Nick Mormah as a man who
made his peace with his Creator before he died.
According to Father Angelo, Nick was in great pain during his stay in hospital and had known the end was coming. He went on to say that Nick had requested his Parish Priest to grant permission to his daughter, Nneka who was preparing to receive her First Holy Communion this Easter, to fast forward the process, to enable him see his daughter receive her First Communion before his (Nick�s) death. The permission was granted and Nneka received the Sacrament of the Eucharist in the Hospital where her father
was receiving his treatment.
Another request made by Nick to his Parish Priest, was that he should be given the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, otherwise known
as the Last Sacrament. This permission was also given and Nick was given the Last Sacrament, each time he received Holy Communion. Father Angelo described the late Mormah as a �Man of the People�. He expatiated on this by saying that Nick would go out of his way to help people in distress who came to him for help.
Born at Agbor, Delta State, on September 10, 1964, to the late J. Mormah and Catherine Mormah, he attended the Agbor Model Primary School, from 1970-1976, Ika Grammar School, 1976 � 1981 and the Federal School of Arts and Science in Sokoto, Sokoto State, from 1984 � 1986.
Nick read Biochemistry at the London Metropolitan University, London, and after his graduation in 1992, went on to study Computer
Science to qualify as a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer. It is in the area of Computer Science that he made his mark in the professional field.
His wife, Helen, son, Nicholas Junior and daughter, Nneka and friends paid tributes galore, to his memory. More tributes were paid to him later that Evening at the Palm Hotel in Hendon Way, North London where a Wakekeeping Ceremony was held to mourn his death. On the occasion, members of the Agbor Daughters Association, led by their President Mrs. Juliet Isede, Mrs Esther Onwuemezie, Mrs. Veronica Onwudijo, (Okpoho ebo), Mrs Eunice Ideh, Mrs. Gloria Nosegbe, Mrs. Evelyn Chiejina (nee Agboegbulem), Mrs Josephine Ehikwe and the cream of Agbor Daughters living in London, joined members of the Agbor Men�s Association, to give Nick a burial that is reminiscent of the true tradition of the Agbor people. The scene was very moving and most of the mourners wondered why Nick had been called to meet his Creator at the prime of his life.
His remains would be flown home to Agbor, Ika South local government Area of Delta State on March 22, 2010, to be followed by
burial rites and interment at his ultra modern residence in Orogodo, from March 25 � 28, 2010.
