The Villa 6

I was interrogated by the police for about two hours and I maintained my innocence. I didn't know a thing about Aisha's disappearance and that was it. Trust the faulty police system to try and do what they aren't trained to do. The officer in charge of my interrogation stopped asking me if I knew where she was and started…

Full of Love, Fool for Love

Tade looked into my eyes with fury and expressed his disappointment in me. His exact words were, "Femi, when it comes to love, you are a dunce. I am afraid all these girls will keep taking you for granted if you don't learn to put yourself first. I can't believe you let this happen again and let yourself be used."…

Mr Miss-fortune (#DontBeBadLock)

My mother said to me, "Ajumobi O'kan taanu, eni Oluwa ba ran sini, ni seeni l'oore. It is life's imperfection that help never comes from where we anticipate it." It never occurred to me that the one who wouldn't pull me up would dedicate his life to bringing me down. Lived through life together but he would rather see me…

The Villa – 5

Previous Episode I heard horrible tales of my short spell of madness when I eventually became aware of the reality of what happened to me. I should have just passed, but I had to join Sly and consume his eba. The moment he told me he made the soup with marijuana, I became conscious of my actions. I double-checked every…

For better and worst

The say, the devil you know is better than the angel you don't know, always imprints on my mind that talk is cheap. Nothing is black or white except both colours. Biblically, the devil was once an angel, hence, everyone who manifests evil intentionally also displays kindness spontaneously. This is because good is innate in every being. The transformation to…

The Villa – 4

Everyone lived in the increased fear of Baba Ade after the mystic death of Ade’s pregnant woman. I have heard a lot of tales, even watched countless movies where ghosts dress in white and haunt their killers, but I never imagined experiencing it firsthand. There are countless cases of couples murdering their partners due to domestic violence. However, living in…

The Villa – 3

Nawa o, you aren't even curious about knowing my name. You're just so concerned about reading about the tales of Baba Ade's villa without making any effort to know who the storyteller is. Obviously, you are a gossip. I can imagine the smirk on your face right now; a bit of mischievousness blended with guilt. Well done. Anyway, the story…

The Villa – 1

The craziest thing about staying in a tenement apartment where you have twenty other tenants isn't sharing the toilet as many people imagine. It isn't even having to take turns to fetch or steal your ally's water when the dry season begins. It isn't in the shouting and numerous arguing or local fist fights. As a matter of fact, all…

Painful love

Be warned, this is an intriguing love story with a happy ending but beneath it are pain and hurt. This is a tale of how I found love in the woman I got married to. Yes, I said found love because she wasn't the one I fell in love with. In fact, I was madly in love with her best…

Sweet like Vinegar

Friends who had missed each other bonded, course mates who left each other for the long vacation were chatting happily, all over Lecture Room 9 were sounds of joy. It was the most stressless time in the semester. The lectures were not fully into the…
