Nwotuberu Alexander, play an Igbo traditional flute for late author Chinua Achebe in his family compound in Ogidi, Nigeria, Thursday, May 23, 2013. Writer Chinua Achebe is being remembered in Nigeria as a fearless writer who bowed to no political pressure, as mourners gather in his hometown for a funeral Thursday. Among attendees was Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, who held up copies of Achebe's books during the service at a local Anglican church — including his famous essay "The Trouble With Nigeria" and Ghanaian President John Mahama.
