I wake as early as 5am in the morning,
which took my cousin (Ade) suprise because
its unlike of me, I used to wake 7am before
but today I wake at 5am, I reached for kettle
as I performed ablution and went to
to pray, thought I couldn’t remembered last
time I prayed, what makes me pray today?
Maybe because am to meet with my inlaw
I had went to Wuse market the previous day
to get a nice wear which I would put on
today, I had also discussed everything with
Ade the previous day, he just adviced me to
becarful with the outing.
After the prayer I took my bath, put on the
outfit I got from wuse market and I headed
to sitting room waiting for the arrival of
Few hours later Ade was get ready for work,
he dropped some money for me before he
went to his working place , I sat in the
sitting room watching Tv, but my mind
wasn’t on the programme they are showing
on AIT (Kakaki) I decided on what next to do
since I wasn’t interested in the programme,
so I took my phone and called my one and
only Tola.
****** TOLA ******
I wake as earlier than I used to, just because
my man is coming over to see my family
today, I quickly did all the house choir even
before big mum was awake, I settled for Tv
programme in sitting room immediately
after I finished the house choir the
programme going on on AIT was Kakaki
Africa, I love the programme because the
anchor of
the programme (Adaora) is someone I like
most, I barely followed the programme
when my phone suddenly interrupted me,
looking at the screen of my phone put
beautiful ever smile on my face, without
knowing I’m still going to cry at the end of
the day
Tola: Hello love, you awake?
Cnn: About 2hrs ago, my dear I couldn’t
sleep I don’t know how today wanna be
Tola: Today will gonna be fine, I couldn’t

Tola: Nothing ma
Big Mum: Are you not going to entertain

Big Mum: No we are not doing it that way,

Tola: ***Collected the money and went on

don’t regrets ever living with you
Big Mum: ***Her words melt her mind, she
felt like calling her brother to cancelled

because the old man was in the city already,
she would know how to talk to him to take
it easy with the boy after his arrest***
Tola: I said I love you mummy, are you not
happy with me or you’re thinking
something else?
Big Mum: Oh! I love you so much dear, you

Tola: Wow thank you mum, you’re the best
mum in the world
Big Mum: Go to market on time and prepare
his food

Tola: Ok mum, am going to Karmo market
ma (Karmo market is one of the most
popular local market in Abuja, there is
nothing they
aren’t selling there, thought Wuse market is
the most populous market in the city) I’ll be
back shortly
Big Mum: Ok dear
Tola: ***I went out and headed to karmo
market to get myself all what I would be
Meanwhile Big Mummy’s phone rang
immediately after Tola left the house, the
caller was her brother which she answered
the call with immediate effect
Big Mum: Good morning Ibrahim
D.P.O: Morning sister
Big Mum: How was your night and journey?
Hope you’re not too stressed?
D.P.O: Not really sister
Big Mum: That’s good
D.P.O: Hope our agreement is still intact?
Big Mum: Yes but
D.P.O: ***Cuts in*** But what sister? Don’t
forget I came all the way from osun state
because of this, and you won’t let me rest
until I danced to your tune
Big mum: Its just that I want you to take it
easy with that boy
D.P.O: Am coming by 10:30
Big Mum: Ok no whala I’ll be expecting you
***Hung up***
****** NIKE ******
I was lying back on the bed in the next
morning, seriously the journey from Osun to
Abuja isn’t a joke, the journey was just too
long, imagine sitting in a car for almost
9hours Abuja is kinda far. To say the fact
Abuja is the most beautiful city I’ve ever
being to,
thought I haven’t opportuned to visit other
cities such as Lagos,Ph,kaduna,Kano and
I was busy with my thought when I heard a
slightly knocked on my door “Come in”
walked in was my daddy
D.P.O: Morning dear
Nike: ***Sat up to greet my daddy***
Morning sir
D.P.O: How was your night?
Nike: Fine sir
D.P.O: Hope you’re not too weak in result of
yesterday journey?
Nike: Somehow weak sir!
D.P.O: maybe because it is your first time to
travel far
Nike: I think so, wait dad I thought you said
we are here to visit my sister, I haven’t
seeing her since yesterday?
D.P.O: Yes ofcourse, because she is not
leaving here, she leaves with my sister and
here is not my sister’s house
Nike: When are we going to her house? And
I also want to see the beautiful city of Abuja,
I was impressed with little I saw yesterday
D.P.O: we are going there by 10 this
morning, get yourself ready
Nike: And you’ll take me to most of places in
Abuja o
D.P.O: Shhh we are here not for the tour, you
will see all what you wanted to see on our
way to my sister’s house
Nike: Hmmmm dad (We are on our
conversation when the house maid knocked
on the door, she came to announced to us
that the brake fast is ready.)
Meanwhile Tola just returned from market
she was in kitchen preparing her Man’s
Big Mum had told her when she came back
form market that she should make the food
much more plenty because some of her
friends would visit later in the day, but what
Tola failed to realized was the friends Big
Mum is trying to referring to wasn’t her
main friends but her brother which is her
(Tola’s) father.
She prepared semo and egusi soup with
goat meat, after the cooking she retired to
the sitting room and waiting for the arrival
of 10am and her man.
******BACK TO CNN******
He just took his bath, he put on the cloth he
selected for the day, wore a nice perfume
(Smart 305) he murmured some prayers
before he went out, at the front of his house
he took his phone and sent a text across
Pesman “Dear friend am on my way to Tola’s
house, please keep praying for me” Few
secons later he received a message from
Pesman saying
“Ore I gat your back, nothing is going to
happen just becarful there”.
He stooped the coming keke napep and
hoped in, in the next 10min he would be in
Big Mummy’s house in Jabi only if the traffic
light dosn’t delayed him.
****** D.P.O IBRAHIM ******
Time is 10am Nike and I are inside my car
heading to Life camp area of Abuja,
probably we are going to my sister’s house
in Jabi,
my motive behind this was to arrest the
stupid boy that almost took living out of my
Daughter some months back in Osun, firstly
I could not arrest the boy alone, so I will
firstly branch at Life camp police station to
request for at least two police officer who
will make the arrest a successful one, I was
busy with my thought when Nike suddenly
Nike: Wow daddy Abuja is just too beautiful
D.P.O: Yes and don’t forget we are in Federal
Capital Territory so it has to be beauties
even more than this
Nike: Yes dad and this round about is the
most biggest roundabout I’ve ever seen
(Referring Kado roundabout, honestly the
roundabout is one of the most biggest in
Africa, it so big that you cannot run round it
once without resting thrice before you
could complete the circle, it links to Life
estate,Kado,Airport junction and Karmo,
with almost 500 lanes)
D.P.O: Yes this roundabout is one of the
most biggest in Africa, don’t you see people
are playing football inside it?
Nike: Yes dad even there is a basket court
there and lot of beautiful trees, one can
easily get lost here o
D.P.O: Yes you’re right, one can lost especial
if you don’t know your way ***I took left
turn as I faced Life camp police station, I
reached the station and parked the
car***My dear wait for me I want to see
D.P.O of this station
Nike: Don’t stay too long sir
D.P.O: Alright (I walked into station and
asked of the D.P.O which I was directed to
after I shown my I.D card and also
introduced myself as a D.P.O in one station
because I’m not on uniform, I explained all
what I came for to the D.P.O and my request
was granted)
Nike: Seated in the car was myself D.P.O
Ibrahim, and the officer that assigned to
him, this made me feeling uncomfortable
but I kept it with myself and concluded to
my father about the other two police officer
D.P.O: I brought the car’s engine back to live
and headed out of the station, I joined the
Kado roundabout again as if I was heading
back Gwarimpa where I was coming before,
I took another right turn as my car faced
Jabi lake.
suddenly I felt stomach pain after 10min of
driving, before I knew it my vision became
blurry, I couldn’t see anything clearly again,
before the two police officer at the back
could figured out that something is
happening have lost control this made my
car hit another moving car, Nike shouted
ontop of
her voice as my car shifted from main road
and hit street light where lot of cars were
parked at Sport center Jabi lake,this made
my car Somersault three times as I hit my
chest on the steering so hard because I
wasn’t on seat belt, I hit my chest very hard
on the steering that I began to see my late
father who was slept in
lord in the year 2002 as I became
