It was a long journey from Ajaokuta to Lagos state. I was already exhausted, it seems the driver was just rolling the vehicle. I Wish he could speed up all better still, disappear cos I can’t really wait to get back to school. The holiday was a very boring one, cos I really missed my friends at school.
Pardon my manners, let me introduce myself.. My name is Noge, I have a twin brother named Nobel, we are the only kids of Mr and Mrs Williams Onuh, we hail from the igala speaking part of kogi state. My brother and I school in Viv-University, which is in Lagos.
Back to present, when we were miles away from Lagos, the driver started struggling with the steering wheel of the bus, jolting me from the world of trance. I could hear other passengers screaming,and some were even praying. At first, I didn’t understand what was going on until sounds of gun shots were heard, that was when it dawned on me that we are about to be robbed. “jeez, I screamed, but it was already too late cos the driver stopped the vehicle, making all of us to jump down. The robbers started beating people up, forcefully extracting stuffs from them. The place was noisy,screams and cries were heard all over. The only thing I was thinking was how to escape, I didn’t even bother to look for my brother. I crept to the back of the bus, luckily for me, the robbers weren’t there, and the boot was open. Thank God I didn’t travel with a big bag, it was just a small kit, so I dragged it out of the boot cos other bigger bags were on it, I heaved a sigh of relief, thinking it’s settled, I never knew the worse awaits me. Someone touched my shoulder, when I turned, behold it was one of the robbers. “good night, he stuttered, before hitting my nose with the down of his gun. “jeez, I yelled as I fell crashing to the ground, I could see him grinning wickedly before I passed out.
After the robbers finished robbing, sirens were heard, indicating that the police was coming, the robbers started running, they took all they stole, both jewelries, phones, money and lots more. “move it guys, move it, sharks the gang leader yelled, making them run hastily but zipper was reluctant to move, he kept looking back at the body behind the bus.”get your f—–g a-s here man, Sharks yelled at Zipper but he rather did the opposite, he ran back to the body lying on the ground and lifted her to his shoulder, this time, the police was closer, he managed to hide inside the bush, cos his gang left him.
