Going home was not even an option for me cos i know the kind of dad i had.
My dad is a very strict man (disciplinarian), he doesn't tolerate nonsense.
Anytime i misbehave, if you see how the man dey drill me ehn, you go sorry for me. (i no know why he no go join military sef) lol.
.
I know say anything wey make me go back house, my Pman con get to know say na dat kine big problem pursue me com house for my 1st week of resumption for dat matter, it is finished for me be dat o.
.
I reason am say, if i try am go back house under this condition, i nor go come back to dis school again. Na to go learn one hand work go con end am last last. (e no go work!)
.
"guy, just go Genesis go carry your bag com, make we go house from here together na" meekest suggested to me.
.
' which house? Guy you too dey fear! you wan run go house cos of dis small matter? You no get mind o, you be big COWARD! As for me, i no dey go anywhere, i go dey the school, make anything wey wan happen, happen' i fired at meekest
.
" na the mind wey you get so, na im put you this problem so na. Thank God say i nor dey house wen ona go kill the cow.
If the army or community com arrest people for our lodge, i go just carry dem com meet you for Genesis, kolo!" Meekest replied me.
.
'Gerrarahere! Na fear go kill you, mugu like you!' i fired back (para mood activated)
.
"as you nor wan go house so, just go my lodge, you go see the pot of banga rice and meats wey Gbokodo run leave, go carry dem join the soup wey i cook for kitchen make you flex! Idiott!," he fired back at me and started laughing.
.
'nor be today i know say you no well! Ode! E don tey wey i know say your brain dey pain you! Mumu! Coward like you!' i fired back at him.
.
We continued in our exchange of words while we strolled from his department to school gate where he would get a bus to express.
.
'Idiot, as you dey go so, nor branch our area o. And if dem ask you wetin happen wey make you com, nor mention my name o, cos i know say you no get sense o' i told him while he was crossing to the other side of the road.
.
"You dey crase! Na ona house i dey go straight so o, you own don finish," he replied me.
' if you try am, i go just murder you!,' i warned him while laughing.
.
I stood there staring at meekest while the bus drove off but my mind wasn't there.

While i stood at that spot thinking about the problem i was involved in, i got a call from a broda of mine. And when i picked the call he said, "hwfa, blackie(meekest) call me just now, he say dey try call you but you number no go, he say make i tell you say make you no go im lodge, say tins cast for thr, he say make you go meet am for im department now'. 'Ok, i dey staff qtrs now, but i go go track am for school now' i replied him.
.
'which kine wahala be dis one? I wan com trek go back to dat school again? God, who i offend?' i asked myself. (Frustration fit make person crase o)
.
'awish i know, i for listen to my 2nd mind o, see wetin i don myself now, who send me dis one?' i asked myself again before my 1st mind replied me.
.
" nor too reason am guy, you neva hear say 'what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger'? Na small challenge, abi you wan think die?," the 1st mind asked while it replied me.
.
'sharrap there, na so you take deceive me wen i take trek all the way from school com staff qtrs, see d way i dey sweat like Xmas goat now cos of your foolish advice' i replied the mind.
.
" oya dey there na, wen you don complete your book of lamentations finish, make you let me know. Na you first enter problem? Instead of you to dey plan the way forward, na me you dey blame. Army go com pick you for here just now, you go con get sense!' the mind fired back at me.
.
*For your information, Staff qtrs is a mini estate built for staffs of the the school, but only few staffs live there. The mini estate serves as a small barrack cos some soldier men lives there too. The whole area was called staff qtrs, dreaded by most students.
.
' i saw some reasonable points in what my 1st mind told me, and i decided to restart my 'Israelite journey' back to school (life tire me dat day) lol.
.
" hwfa guy, why e be say anytime i ride pass dis road, i go see you dey waka, you no wan enta bike abi, you wan trek die?" a bikeman asked me, laughing as he rode past me. ( i don suffer!).
.
'Your fada! Your fada yansh! idiooott! Fooolll! Animal! Thunder fire you there! Mad man! Stupid fool! Ekpa!," i fired back at him angrily. (nor blame me, blame frustration) lol
.
After what seems like 10yrs, i got to school, went to meekest's department, met him sitted with some of his friends gisting.
.
"wetin do your phone? I dey try call you since but your number no dey go, i even send you text message sef but e nor dey deliver, dats why i call ur senior man make he call you," he said immediately he saw me.
'guy go straight to the point, i nor get body for many talk now, wetin happen?' i asked him with a frowned face (i no get joy dat moment).
.
"wen i reach lodge dis morning, i see Gbokodo for outside dey roast some meat, i con go meet d guy, na there he take tell me say ona kill one big cow for inside bush yesterday,"
"Gbokodo just dey happy anyhow,
while he dey roast the meat with firewood, he dey cook banga rice with im gas,"
"i con tell am say make he set keep (reserve) my share for me anytime he cook finish, he say no problem, i con follow am dey small before i go collect my key from pointer,"
"when i enta house, na kitchen i go straight cos i wan arrange small oil rice wen i go eat but wen i reach there, i con suprise see pot of meat for kitchen before wetin Gbokodo tell me about d cow wey ona kill"
"na so i change mind o, i con decide to arrange better Egusi soup with the assorted meat wey dey d pot,"
"as i don cook the food reach half done, na so i start to dey hear noise of people dey shout and run for outside,"
"i con go my window go spy, omo, na there i take see soldeir men and some aboki wey carry bow and arrow dey chase people o,
" the aboki say dem go kill anybody wey dem catch troway, say dem must kill person take replace their cow wey ona kill so,"
" as i dey spy like dis, na im one army man com dey bang my gate, i nor answer o, he bang bang tire but wen nobody ansa am, he con comot,"
"as dem dey go, i hear wen one take say all dem go com back com arrest everybody for our lodge, say na we kill d cow"
"dem go uproot the cow horns com out o, dem leave am for front of our lodge, e dey there now sef,"
" as i wait small, observe say dem don go finish, na once i carry my bag run com school o,"
" as you see me so, na house i dey go so cos i nor want enter army wahala"
.
It was when he made the last statement that i noticed he carried a bag in his laps.

.
When meekest left, i went to my temporary house at Genesis, dropped my bag, pulled my clothes and entered the bathroom, i stayed under the shower for a long time, while trying to figure a way out of the problem i found myself.
.
When i got out of the bathroom, i felt my head aching as a result of over thinking (i over use my brain dat day).
.
I managed to eat some slice of breads and cold tea before i fell in the bed, i was stil thinking about the way forward when i slept off.
I was woken by the sound of my ringtone, when i checked the caller Id, it was meekest.
.
I woke up feeling better, that was when i realised i had slept for about 5hrs (3pm- 8pm).
A good amount of sleep relaxes the nerves and body, it makes one feel fresh and fly.
.
I answered the call, and the following conversation ensued,
.
Me: how far, you no get sense o, na now when my sleep don dey sweet me before you know say you disturb me with ur anyhow call abi? No try am again o, by the way which time you take reach house?
-
Meekest: if you don rap finish make you tell me, kolo! My landlord say make i tell you say make you go meet am for im store opposite school gate, he say make you com tell am your side of the cow story.
-
Me: see wetin you dey open dat your yeye mouth dey tell me, fool! Tell your landord say i nor dey around, you no get sense? Wetin concern me and your landlord? I nor dey go meet any landlord o guy, inshort, i don travel.
-
Meekest: go meet am first na, you know wetin he wan tell you?
-
Me: you be really mugu! I nor wan hear anything from am, if the tin important well well, make he tell you, then you pass the information give me. Cos i nor dey go meet anybody dis nite.
-
Meekest: ok o, nor say i nor tell you o! He say make everybody wen dey the lodge yesterday com meet am for store, i con tell am say i nor dey around yesterday, but e be like say somebody con tell am say you dey my house, dats why he say he wan see you.
-
Me: Oga, you nor dey hear word? I nor dey go anywhere o, tell your landlord say i don travel, i said while shouting on the phone.
-
Meekest: na you know, i don tell you finish. If i com anything con happen, i go carry dem com where you dey, bye!
.
When he hanged up, i started thinking again, i got tired of thinking and zeroed my mind, i prayed for a way out but i was expecting and prepared for the worst.
(make anything wey wan happen, happen sef!).
.
I slept off again after considering all the worst scenarios that could play out, and how i would face it.
I created imaginary problems for myself and how i could solve them, while i slept off in the process.
.
*The next day.
I just finished eating fried indomie and bread while preparing for class that morning when meekest called me.
-
Meekest: hwfa na, how you dey?
-
Me: which day dat one start? Na me you dey form caring for? Yeye dey worry you o.
-
Meekest: i nor fit ask how you dey again, no problem! Oma, just dey thank God say you nor go meet my landlord yesterday o.
-
Me: i nor understand, wetin happen?
-
Meekest: na trap! Wen i call Queen this morning, she say wen Pointer and Structure go meet my landord for him shop after he call dem, as dem just dey enter him shop, na im army con sorround them for the shop, dem con handcuff their two, put dem for hilux carry comot.
-
Me: i just know say dat your landlord call no pure, i nor trust the guy call at all. Shey you don confirm say you no get sense? I nor blame you sha. I go forgive your foolishness but no allow devil use you next time o
-
Meekest: God don save you, dem for dey drill you for one side now, mumu
-
Me: thunder fire you there. Your ear well well, i fired him while laughing and the call ended.
.
I got set and went to school, when i got to school gate, i saw some community men dragging some boys out of the school, (na so i turn back o). I went to one store across where i could observe what was going on.
-
'mama, good morning o, wetin dey happen for there na, wetin those boys do wen make community people dey drag dem like dat?' i asked the woman who owns the shop i was.
-
"no mind those boys, their parents send dem com school, na cow dem con dey go kill, dem dey among the boys wey kill cow for staff qtrs yesterday ,"
"na so dem take dey cause problem for their parents so,"
"No be small tin for secreteriat since o, the aboki say dem one must kill person take replace their cow,"
"if nor be sense wen Community chairman use take settle the matter, e for turn to another thing o,"
"na two boys wey army hold yesterday for dat computer man shop, na dem the community youths dey carry waka from place to place make dem dey point anybody wey dem see for the bush yesterday,"
"my pikin, no follow anyhow boys waka o, no cause wahala for your parents o," she adviced me,
.
If only she knew i was among them boys! lol

"If to say na just me e e e
I'll be living like i dont care
Live my life unto nobody dey here
If na just me e e e,i'll be doing anyhow
Because nobody go dey here to challenge
me
Nobody is supernatural,diverse is the spirit
of the carnival
Your personality e no matter at all
Individuality cannot make us tall
I sing,i sing for all of y'all
Dont let anybody push you to the wall
Na community na hin make us all
Secret society na hin break us all
I dont want to be talking like a preacher at
all
I dont want to dey like say i sabi pass all
I know say no be everybody sabi play ball
But arise O' Compatriots
If nigeria call
So make you just dey do your thing
Make i do my thing
If i like living instead of to be feeling like a
king on top nothing
Stop the braggin
And stop the posing
Cuz all na vanity vanishing" -
i sang this verse of 2face's Only me track in my mind while i watched my fellow butchers being dragged away.
.
I had some wild thoughts like, what if i was caught with them and being dragged about like that, what would be my (chemical) reaction?
How would i face my coursemates?
Would i stil have the courage to continue school? (shame for just finish me!).
And the question that bothered me most was.. What if the school decides to expel the students involved, how do i explain to my parents at home? ( how i one take start?)
.
I felt pity for the boys caught, while i began to thank God for my life. I thanked God for his Grace in my life. If not for God's oil in my head, i nor know where i for dey cos i don enta many big problems, but na God dey rescue me.
.
If your head don't have oil, go and ask God to give now you o, cos its very very important.
.
Now for your own benefit,
place your hands on your head and say after me, o my head!, receive God's oil now! Receive!!!
(Don't look at me like that, i am not a pastor o) lol
.
After the boys were dragged to the community's secreteriat, i left the woman's shop, crossed to the other side of the road and entered school.
.
When i got to my department, i met met my HOD(Head Of Department) addressing the class.
.
"it has gotten to our notice that some group of students of this school killed a stray cow in staff qtrs, yesterday,"
"those students involved would be severly punished for trying to tarnish the image of this school,"
"you were sent here to learn, not to go and kill cow,"
"so, if you are involved or you know anyone that is involved, come and report yourself or the person you know, so we can settle the matter amicably,"
"if any student of this department is involved and after this message refuse to come and see me in my office, if such student is caught, i will personally expel him from this department!,"
" a word is enough for the wise, thank you!" Our HOD said as he leaves the hall.
.
I started contemplating on whether to go and report myself or not.
.
" you better go meet HOD for office now o, to avoid stories that touch o" my 1st mind told me.
-
" no go meet anybody, wetin dey do you? You be coward?," my 2nd mind countered.
-
"you don start o, na so i tell you make you no go staff qtrs yesterday, you no hear o," the 1st mind replied
-
" nor go anywhere guy, dem no fit catch you yesterday, na only you wan con submit yourself? No try am o!
.
I followed my 2nd mind's advice and decided not to report mtself.
Nothing dey happen! Na we dey here, na we get am! I go no where! (voltage!) lol
