Many years ago, I was a cadet in the academy and I had just been transferred to a new cabin. Few days later I was sparring with a senior cadet opposite my new cabin. He looked so gentle and in my mind I was like "I'd eat this one up", but surprisingly he was a very skilled fighter. I asked him "bro, you fight so well, where did you learn that?" He laughed and said "forget say I gentle o, I'm a blackbelt". That young man was Richard. Popularly called Cypher D Viper. Richard not only knew how to fight, he knew how to rap so well. We became instant buddies. He was a very gentle guy and had no time for "navy-work". The next semester which was the final semester of that academic year, Cypher was malingering as usual when our Deputy Regimental Unit Commander caught him. The DRUC was a brutal and intimidating person. When he caught Cypher, he wanted to beat him but Cypher said "oga sir I'm not resisting, I'm following you sir, I'm not running away sir". The DRUC, still in an attempt to show superiority went ahead to beat Cypher. Unfortunately, Cypher wasn't having it and instead he beat the DRUC blue black. This act earned him a full semester in guardroom, he was released the week before exams which was cadet week. We had a show to perform, I told him bro tonight's all about you man. I'd give intro, you do your thing man. So I picked up the mic and gave an intro "Good evenin' ladies and gentlemen How's everybody doin' tonight? I'd like to welcome to the stage, the lyrically acclaimed, I like this young man because he's the king Even the DRUC has felt his sting Now he rules from the guardroom to the cabin Doing some real stuff unlike you niggas cappin Give it up for my man Cypher With the deadly sting yeah that's right Cypher D Viper." Cypher went to to spit 3 minutes of freestyle dissing the DRUC. This act got him dismissed eventually. Then Cypher went home and started a business selling dogs. From there, he hustled his way to Russia and started schooling there. Early this year, my man Cypher got married as he was to graduate this month. Already applied for Russian citizenship and already had a permanent residence. I have created a petition and appeal to the Russian Government to issue a posthumous award of bravery to a Nigerian student - Richard Eluemunor Okasia, who died while trying to rescue a drowning lady at a beach in Kaliningrad, Russia. Please sign and share this petition till it gets to the relevant authorities.
