    Hope he will be out soon to write a follow up to the ‘Spiritual side of Aso Rock’.

    Enough to partly deplete our Commonwealth.

    So my Brother Abati collected various sums and he didn’t tell me despite the fact that we are both from Itoko in ABEOKUTA.

    We both believed in Spirit and Superstition and he didn’t tell me when Spirit was sharing cash regularly while we ate and play together.

    He would drink GARI with me and take parts of the 20naira groundnuts bought by me. He would even complain of stomach pains and I would use native ointments on the area to get him well

    Let him remain there, if Spirit can’t bail him out. I have learnt my lesson.

    Ha, kilode?

  • The story is not complete. He is under arrest and is being interrrogated, what is his defence, why is he not charged to court yet?

    Not really disappointed, just wondering when genuine men, will emerge
