The last week has been the funniest and most adventurous week. Let me give you a recap. In one of the buses I entered during the week, the driver was treating his conductor like a houseboy. It was easy to see that the conductor was new to the job. The guy whispers (him voice never break yet, e never join men smoke igbo *that was a comment made by one of the passengers o not me*). Anyway summary of that gist is, they took a woman past her bus stop, madam refused to drop o, caused wahala, passengers supported her and they had to refund her money. I thought drama was over o, until I stepped down the bus and walked down my street, only to see 2 hausa guys fighting o. Before I could even blink, one of the men took a gallon containing 4 litres of fuel and used it to baff the other guy from hair to toe. Next thing, I saw dagger, please I am not like the CNN journalists that I admire, that will go to warfront with camera and be giving you live report. Some sef will die on the field and someone else will take their job. Their final words will sound like this,
“The shooting here is critical, I see bullets, Oh my God, someone just died beside me and ouch, I was just shot and… *the mic would drop, the guy will die, the camera man will either run or keep reporting*”
I am not like that o. I saw dagger and I quickened my steps to my house. I would have even called a cab sef but the distance wasn’t worth it. Warri people say, na from clap dance dey start. From dagger now, cutlass, and then innocent me will now die. My mother taught me that, na person wey try separate fight dey chop beating pass. My dear, Yoruba people say, if you see people pursuing thief, you either follow them and pursue the thief or hide. If you run the opposite direction, you might end up being mistaken as a thief.
Moral Lesson: No gist is worth your life o. If you smell dangerous trouble, disappear. In some of the twin bomb blast in Abuja, some people died because they went to look, or because they wanted to be major eye witnesses.
In other news,
I nearly had an accident yesterday. Bus driver vs. Sienna driver o. Everybody started screaming Jesus!!! Allah!!! Nigerians can fear, I feel that’s why some people cling to religion. I feel it is out of fear not love or faith. I was too sure that nothing will happen to me. Thank God tho, for saving me from that one.
