The Blind Beggar Beggars are a nuisance at any time: they are always there when you don’t want them to be, obstructing your path and thrusting their alms bowls into your face. They usually come at you in a swarm, like flies congregating on cow dung: the blind, the deaf, the physically disabled and the-plain-just-beggars … Continue reading The Blind Beggar – Flash Fiction
Read Previous episode: Here Will I ever get out of this? Ibimina paced the room, willing the headache which was slowly developing at the back of her head to go.

Up NEPA!!!!!! A tiny voice shouted from the next door and I sprang up immediately from the where I lay with a burst of energy.

Whose side were you always on When papa’s cane made thumping sounds When whispered echoes drowned my muffled cries When anxiety made me groan Whose side were you always on When I looked at you for reassurance Wet eyes, bruised lips, seeking pity When I peaked for warmth or a soothing piety Whose side were … Continue reading Unraveling ep4 of 16
While we weep – while we weep We breathe as though we feel A hand choking us as we sleep A plan making sure we sink While we weep – while we weep We reach for a steady grip A grain of peace within our dream A tighter clasp on pleasures deep While we weep … Continue reading Unraveling ep3 of 16
They scowled at her. It was then she recognized their faces. Both were local hunters- probably on morning patrol following rumours of a possible ‘Boko Haram’ attack on the village. In her state, Amina was too terrified to greet. Neither party exchanged pleasantries. From their expressions however, it was clear they disapproved of her presence … Continue reading Her Name is Amina (Part 2)

Watch what Titilayo was caught doing to this Lecturer SHAME! See this motorcyclist in Uyo using his rod on two secondary school girls.’ Margaret’s eyes … Continue reading Sense Of Fury [18+]!
Her name is Amina. She sat for a long while staring at the big round clock which hung off-centre above the thatched opening to the zaure, or entrance-hut. The clock was really old. Its cracked, cloudy face spoke volumes of its age, wear and character. Tacitly though, these defects staked a claim to some form … Continue reading Her Name is Amina ( Part 1)

Esther and I communicated a lot via social media chatting. It all felt like a long-distance relationship to me and I wasn’t cut out for such; more especially, because of the fact that I had not yet told her my mind. It did not seem manly enough to me to propose to a girl over … Continue reading Happy Independence!
A little bit over 110km/h wasn’t a normal speed on a single lane road at an odd hour of the day but that wasn’t the problem, the tension in the vehicle was. It was high, skyrocketing, I must say. I could remember the feeling I had, a bizarre; it was that of a vehicle drifting … Continue reading Speed

I opened my eyes to find seven cruel looking monsters beating up a dwarf clothed in a white that was drenched by blood. His face bled from several cuts all over. He remained at a place while heavy punches kept crushing his supposedly handsome face. He was totally powerless. I made to scream but the … Continue reading Your Life
Everyone except Sule stepped out of the class to play as soon as the break bell was rung. Sule impatiently watched Mr. Ajayi who didn’t seem to want to go and get his usual plate of rice, beans, spaghetti, plantain and fried meat. It looked as if the ugly-faced class teacher was going to ruin … Continue reading Smart Kid
