The rich also cry. Crime definitely does not pay – wasted his prime in jail (20 years), hope he is able to make something meaningful out of his life now.
Edith Ike Okongwu (of blessed memory) had a steamy affair with ex head of state General Yakubu Gowon and their affair resulted in the conception and birth of Musa…
Edith lived with Gowon during the war till his people kicked her out for flimsy reasons and took young Musa away from her. She relocated to America but many years later,she kidnapped him on a visit to Nigeria and took him back to America. That move was probably wrong because young Musa became rebellious and didn’t approve of his mothers single and flamboyant lifestyle.To make matters worse,His dad Yakubu Gowon had allegedly cut him off for as long as he was with his mum. Musa eventually became one of the highest ranking member/ business partner of a Colombian drug cartel.He lived a rich and flamboyant lifestyle until he was caught.
During his trial,the he was offered a deal to rat on the people he worked with but he refused and there was outrage,his people were angry with him for not betraying the people he worked with but young Musa argued that if he talked they would fish him out even in jail and snuff him out.he kept sealed lips and in 1993 in his early twenties,he was sentenced to jail..hard labour. The funny thing is that Musa got into trouble,trying to get acceptance from his people and win his father’s love And when he was making money and spending it,he got the acceptance…albeit briefly….but was abandoned for slinging his family name in the mud.
Musa was 45 years old this year and he is still in jail but will be released next year 2014 after spending 20years in jail,whilst he was in jail,his mum passed on…. he will be released in a few months and deported back to the land he was born….Nigeria. Musa asked his brother to open a Facebook page in his name because he wants to locate his family members and old friends.
Below his brothers introductory message and Musa’s
HIS BROTHER SAYS…..
To all of Musa’s friends, this is his brother Richard Ike standing in place for him. Musa asked me to set-up a facebook page on his behalf so he could get back in contact with his long lost friends from the past. He has been incarceration for a while now and would love to hear from everybody. Bellow is the message he gave me to give to you all, from his heart to your heart.
”My dear beloved friends, brothers and sisters, it is with great joy and utmost humility that I greet you all today in our native tongues by intoning, “Ndi Igbo Kwenu, – Eku Ikale Gbogbo Arawa, – Gasuwa.” I have unfortunately been incommunicado for a number of years from you all… my dear friends, and frankly speaking, it is refreshing and an absolute delight to be back in touch. I was grateful, overwhelmed and overjoyed by all your many words of support and encouragement. I took all that was said to heart and it meant and means the world to me. I thank you all profusely from the bottom of my heart!!!
I noticed that many of you are trying to contact me, you can write me directly at:
Musa Gowon 97913-012 #A3D
Taft Correctional Institute

Nonetheless, I shall be in contact with you all as soon as I can figure out the logistics involved. In a house of bondage, under draconian conditions, I reside. Irrespective, I wish you all the best in all your various endeavours. May the Lord bless and guide you all and your families. Have a wonderful and fantastic day, and please write sometimes.
Musa Jack Gowon”
MUSA ALSO WANTS YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN OUT THERE TO KNOW THAT CRIME DOES NOT PAY….Live your life meaningfully!
