Part 6.

We finally landed in Nigeria, it’s been 4 years since I visited home, so everything was looking so weird. I went straight to nearby hotel of 4k per night( that was what I could afford)

I quickly unpacked some stuff I needed, at this point I knew I couldn’t survive in Nigeria cos of so many reasons. I knew i needed to leave the country one way or the other.

I checked my passport expiry date and I noticed it has just 2 months left on it. I quickly went to the immigration office in ikoyi to renew my passport. The process wasn’t easy at all, but I succeeded in completing all the process. I was informed the passport would be out in a months time.

I can’t stay in an hotel for one month, so I decided to go back to my parents. My family leaves somewhere in Northern NIGERIA. I couldn’t afford to travel by air, so I opted for the alternative which is traveling by road. I KNEW IT WAS VERY RISKY, but what can I do ?

We started the journey from lagos, everything was going on smoothly, the passengers onboard were all happy and cheerful. When we got to lokoja in kogi state, the driver stopped for us to get some refreshments, I did not buy anything because I was avoiding a runny stomach.

After about 15mins everybody was done with there refreshments, we entered the vehicle and continued the journey. I slept off, when I woke up i noticed we just entered the Abuja-kaduna highway.

At this point, I was praying hard because i know that road very well, it is one of the most dangerous in the country.

What I saw next looked more like a dream than reality, I noticed some Fulani men coming out from the bush nearby with AK47 and all sort of strange looking guns.
I knew this was a problem, I quickly informed the driver of what was happening. The passengers onboard started to panic, I was so afraid but I did not panic. In my head was looking for the nearest escape route. And getting my self ready just in case they open fire on the bus. They got really close to our vehicle I knew there was trouble……………



Part 7 coming up shortly.
Omo naija wey sabi home, in sound sultan voice, (no matter where u go, no forget home) Truly naija, hope u come out safe and sound, that's all I wish for you. Waiting for next episode.

It’s not easy to be a man ,I remember when I dropped out from the university and the two major reasons (flying out of the country and/or starting business here in Nigeria) I took the step failed . I had no job to survive,my sponsor cut me off ,all my friends gone except one ,the girl I was in love with ignored me ,my family turned their back on me . That’s was the time I realize this life nor be joke and most people you see around you are only there for the gains . I spent about two years in depression and I almost gave up before I found a way out .

Truthfully , person wey fight never meet na hin Dey call himself man

U be real gee.....na who life never turn upside down go think say the story na fiction..

Part 5.

I stopped halfway, because I noticed the bill was getting higher than the money I had on me. I finally got home after walking and dragging my suitcases for 15mins or so.

When got home, I quickly went to shower because I was sweating like a goat ready to be killed for Christmas. The next day I went to my company, the HR never cared, at this point I was fuming. I could not react nor do anything because it will make the whole matter worst.

After going back and forth for hours, the company cleared me for travels. I quickly went home, rearrange my luggages and I was ready to leave the country.

It was 9:30pm. I was at the airport again. Before going to check-in with my airline, I decided to confirm if I was cleared for travels by my company.

I went to the immigration desk and pleaded with the officer to kindly scan my passport to see if I could leave that night. My passport was scanned and yet again my company did not follow the due process for my cancellation and clearance for travels.

At this point I was so frustrated and confused, I pleaded with the immigration officer and I explained everything to him, he said he couldn’t do anything.

While I was pleading with the officer, I saw another immigration officer, the one who handled my case the previous day, I explained everything to him again and he called one of the top Officers at the airport.

I was invited to the office, He asked necessary questions and gave the answers. The officer saw the pains and frustration in my eyes, in his own words “I don’t know the issue you are having with your company, your records are clean”. He cleared me after following some documentations, I signed all the necessary documents and I was good to go.

I boarded the aircraft, and for the first time in a week, I breathed fresh air. lol.

I slept all through the journey. I did not wake to have dinner, I never cared. I woke up when I heard the announcement, welcoming us to MMIA.

That's the right thing to do.

Life experience is usually a phase to usher in something greater, that's if we didn't give up along the way.

I wish you multiple recovery of every good thing you've lost.

Greater days ahead.

A time will come when you'll face your greatest challenges, everything will look bleak, no help from nowhere, sometimes, you'll loose everything but if you're strong and persistent enough, you'll know that that phase of life is just a remodelling, like a snake undergoing moulting or eccidysis, you're loosing your old self and developing a new self. Unfortunately, many die before the moulting process is complete. May that not be your portion, perhaps death is not a bad thing after all since we all will die all day, perhaps untimely death is what's painful. Unfortunately, death is no respecter for anyone so live life to the fullest unafraid of death, aware that death can come at anytime. When you accept life in it's fullness, you'll also accept death when it comes knocking on your day. Remember that every new day is a day closer to your death day, so be happy and grateful! grin

Indeed, you are living the life.

People's fear of death is what I found amusing.

We all live to die, It is what it is.

Part 7.

The bandits got really close to our vehicle and I was seated right behind the drivers seat, I know if they opened fire at the vehicle they wouldn’t miss. The passengers in the other vehicle in front of ours quickly highlighted and tried running to bush.

Some passengers in my bus tried running but they changed there mind(lol) because if they do, they will be running to the direction of the bandits. I knew it was better to stay alive than getting a bullet to the head. The bandits opened fire but not towards our bus or the escaping passengers, maybe they were shooting to the skies just to make the running passengers to stop in fear.

When I heard the first gunshot my brain literally tripped off, i placed my hands on my head, taking a position for impact and closed my eyes. I will not lie, I did not remember to pray.

I did not see what happened after the first gunshots but I can tell it was chaotic. I heard shots and people were shouting and panicking. The gunshots reduced and I raised my head to observe the situation. I noticed, since all the passengers in my vehicle did not move out or tried to run to the nearby bushes, the bandits did not pay attention to our bus and they literally moved to other buses in front, (that is what I think.)

I told the guy seated close to me that this was a perfect time to run. I quickly checked my hand luggage and got my power bank, and I dropped the luggage, I did not want to carry any load while running.

And waited patiently in panic not wanting to make any mistake at all. Finally, I got the balls I needed, not because the coast was clear, but because the bandits had moved further to other busses in the scene. It was time to run.

I gently moved to the door, everybody was panicking real bad. I did not say I word. The guy seated close to me knew it was time.

I opened the door, and I ran to the bush in the opposite direction, and the guy closer to me did the same thing. While in motion, the gunshots went back on. But this time i think we were the targets. I did not stop to analyze the situation but I know for sure other passengers in my bus had joined the escape.

I had only one mission, and that was to stay alive, the gunshots did not stop and I think some passengers behind me got hit( I’m not too sure)

I ran as fast as I could, the bushes here was crazy, alot of low lands and branches, I fell off a couple of times, but I did not care.

I ran for like 10-15 minutes when I finally turned around to talk to my friend and I noticed it was just me in a thick and crazy bush. I can’t retrace my steps back to the highway because I had made multiple turns. When I had ran enough, I stoped to rest for some minutes before continuing.

I checked my phone to see how many percent of battery I had, it was like 50% or so and my power bank was 100%. I was lucky enough because I had my USB cord in my pocket. I was so relieved, at this point I started strategizing to know my next line of actions. I had some network coverage on my phone and I was about to open the google map when I heard some people talking in a distance. They were speaking Hausa, I barely understood Hausa. I tried to observe, after some time I decided to walk towards them to seek for help.

As I was approaching gradually, A spirit in me was saying THIS GUYS ARE NOT FRIENDLY. I stopped, I could see them with AK47. I asked myself “do hunters use AK47 to haunt ??”

I never needed a prophet to tell me the answer, I knew it was time to take off again. I turned around to run when, I heard someone shout “no move, no move o.
