Read the full gist below as written on his page – @iykeville90
Today is the last day I’m doing this vigilante thing. So I & 5 hefty guys were securing the front of our crip. I had a shovel, they had cutlasses. One then suggested we patrol and we agreed. Less than 100m walk, we saw two bikes accelerating towards us. Before I could say pim.
..all 5 of my men disappeared. The only thing I heard was “iyke run!”. It never crossed my mind that I was moving gallantly with ungallant men. I ran too Fortunately, it was police. After a while, my men came out of their hideout, we gathered & started walking back to our domain
..we weren’t talking to each other. All of a sudden, one bursted out in laughter & every other person followed suit. We were laughing because we know we were useless. Just filling up the street. I asked Chidi why he ran, he said “nwuye m muru nwa ofóru, and nwa m amatabeghi m”.
Trans: my wife just gave birth and my child hasn’t known me yet. See me wey think say I dey guard street with ndi akpobi. Nwanne, I don resign for this work. My wife too hasn’t known me, let alone the unborn.
