A Story Written By Melekan…
As I stepped out of my apartment and took a seat with REMI outside the main building very close to the abandoned well under a huge mango tree.It didn’t take a while before TAYO came to join us,i was really surprised that he was also at home but REMI said he always comes home early most times pass four pm unlike the rest of us which are night crawlers.
We were sitted there till around 8pm before we all went into our various apartment after watching kemi drive into the compound and the remaining occupants of the top flats.We the three bachelours stay at the ground flats and the last flat was occupied by Kemi a spinster.
I was having serious stomach upset and have been visiting the toilet all through the night.
At about 1am when i was feeling better i decided to go into my kitchen and get the remaining rice to mulch on.
As I proceeded into the kitchen i saw some shadowly figures moving outside.My mind did a full four-fourty before returning to my body,just then i began hearing whispers but with my rabbit ears,
i could make up half of what they were saying.who would believe nigerian theives still used incantations.

BOO BOO LAGUNTAN N WO,OJU TOKUU LAELE KI I FII RIRAN ASUN UN PARADA NI TIGI AJA FON FON NI EWE IFON.KI GBOGBO EYIN TI N BE NINU ILE YII MAA SUN.E MAA SUN..
as a yourba guy nah,summary of all they were saying was that they were involking some god to induce deep sleep on the occupants of the house,although i was still standing shocked in the kitchen i guess hungry a couple of minutes ago but now… i really wanted to urinate.
I picked up my phone and switched off all the lights in my apartment.The noise from the theives was still very alarming as i dialled the police.(nigeria police force i hail una).The call was picked at the first ring,that really suprised me as i gladly admirred the change in the police system(nah me talk am nah una read am)
ME : hello officer please there are thieves in my house,they are trying to break down the door come quickly please
OFFICER : young man take it easy,whats your address?
