Aaah.

I've been faced with many of them, but this particular one really got me angry.
I was in a village doing the work of the ministry (if you know Mbaukwu, In Awka, ANAMBRA state).
One of them tried to stop me while I was hurrying to church that evening. We were at a narrow road. Truth is, I heard him blowing that thing in their mouth, and I could have easily turned back. But then, I thought to myself, why would I turn back?
I kept going, and he saw me. He immediately raised his cane up to attempt to flog me with it.
I looked around and he was alone. I shouted at him, "if you try it, it will be your last".

When he heard it, he relaxed and started blowing that thing in his mouth. I told him he should move aside, as I was getting late for evening service.

He started to rant in a deep voice. Now, I was getting scared, a little. Then I told myself, if I "Bleep up now", that's the end o...this guy will flog me like I took his wife.
I maintained my posture and confidence. I made sure he saw the Bible and the note I was holding, to proof to him that I was a Pastor.

Then, He moved aside to allow me to go, and said, "you self, if you Don hear the whistle sound, no they Waka come again ooo". I didn't respond as I walked past him.

That's how I left that alley, and straight up, walked as fast as I could to church, with sweat all over me.

Those years, I was bold!
I'm bolder now. cool

I endured it in 2019, when I was beaten in Nsukka. Endured again in 2021, when these same people wiped me two powerful ones on the back, when coming from school.

Today again, I have chested another one for the culture.
But I swear by the filaments and the skies, the next these wicked idiots hiding under the cloak of a masquerade attire will lash me again, I will definitely retaliate.I swear.

Both the person hiding inside the cloak, the idiots following him or her around, and the gods they are representing, will feel the heat, that day. I swear and I swear.
Heh God! That fool inside that masquerade gown should thank his stars that I was held by some people yesterday evening, I would have shown the world a side of me that I have hiding for too long now.

You should come and see the intensity this guy used to wipe me that raffian stick this evening.
Yes, I know I have been owing lots of people lately, but for goodness' sake, why not come directly and ask for your money. Be a man, for goodness' sake.
Must I be flogged?

Ask for your money, you coward. The highest I will do is refuse to pay you, or maybe threaten you on top.
Come like a man and ask for your money

I can see some people supporting this barbaric act on in the name of culture, some even say it as it is normal thing and the right of these useless masquerade people to flog an innocent person.

The day I will have marchet with me and they come to flog me, do you know how they butcher cow in Abbatoir, that's exactly the way I will butcher each of them


The Youths will simply end your life.
Many Igbo villages don't joke with masquerades though I don't support the beating. But it is what it is.

Some years ago, I and my friend that works for the DSS were moving around in Nssuka on one Sunday evening around 4pm when the masquerades came and attacked us. They were beating some young boys around but we were on the other side of the road walking and just observing. Two of them started running towards us with their long whips ready to start whipping us because we didnt run away like others. He quickly brought out his pistol and started shooting towards their direction when they were just a few feets away from us. Come see how all of them took off shouting and screaming in Igbo. I will never forget that day ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Shey the gods won't protect them again?

He should have scattered one person leg.
