Eze Nri Obalike's Grandson

Prince Ben Okolo meeting the colourised photo of his grandfather Eze Nri Obalike.

Ben Okolo was born in 1926, a year prior to Obalike's 'long journey' - Prince Ben was told about the joy the Eze Nri Obalike felt when holding his grandson in his arms when a baby. Prince Ben hopes to erect a museum at the site of Obalike's Palace featuring N. W. Thomas's photographs to memorialise his grandfather.
