I SEE GHOSTS.......!!!!!

"I see can see ghosts" I said plainly to the Him.

There was a weird long silence in the room.

The Doctor's name tag simply said "Dr Pere".He sat across from me regarding me  as if I were some new experimental drug he wasn't sure was safe for use.

Long silence.

KOLLUPIA episode 8

The Major's screams echoed across the road as the heavy down pour gave way to a drizzle.

Micheal stood perfectly still watching Kuro as he clutched his leg in pain.

Long Silence.

There was a look of defiant rage in The Major's eyes .

Eze dipped his ball of akpu into the bowl of soup, and put it into his mouth, immediately making a face. He turned to his friend Ibe, who was eating his food and scrolling through his phone at the same time.
“O boy, who cooked this food?” he asked whispering.

 Ibe looked up at his friend “My wife.. why are you asking?” he said looking into his friend’s plate.

“hmmm nothing” Eze said, as Nkem walked into the dining room carrying another serving pot. She smiled at Eze, and offered him more soup. Eze declined with a vigorous shake of his head.

THE ABUSER......(her story)

Why doesn't he fight back?why does he just sit there and take it?what sort of man(if I can still call him a man) lets a woman smack him around for the sake of love?

She walked down the stairs, her mind spinning out of control. She didn’t know when she got to the end of the staircase, and she tripped. She held unto the wall, to keep her from falling on her face.

No one seemed to pay attention to her. All around her there was a buzz of activity. She felt like screaming. Why did she have to go through her pains all alone? Why didn’t anyone care how she felt? People passed by her, going up and the stairs without even a nod in her direction. She felt so helpless.

Heard a very inspiring tale today.
I decided to share it.For a while,I've been going through some deep and troubling personal  issues that have made slip into a strange kind of depression that I never realized would affect me so much.
Without going into details,lets just say that in Less than three hours today,about 80% of the problems I'd been going through were solved.
Just like that!

Olisa walked out of the house, like a gentleman. He had on a gray suit tailored by brooks brothers, bespoke for him. A Hublot Classic Fusion Haute Joaillerie glittered on his wrist, and black handmade Tanono Crisci shoes, completed his ensemble. When he got outside the house, he put on a pair of Chopard’s sunglasses, to protect his eyes from the harsh glare of the sun. He walked to his car port, got into a silver Bentley and drove out of his villa.

Monday, 20 April 2015


It  felt like it lasted for a millenium.

All through,he had struggled and screamed(or at least attempted to).

All through,the men chuckled,made jokes as his ordeal continued.

The pain was like nothing he'd ever experienced before.

Saturday, 18 April 2015


"This is a really messy place" I heard him say behind me.

"Oh God!"I exclaimed as I turned around.

"You're real"I said.

He was standing in the middle of the room.He wasn't wearing a police uniform.

He was dressed in a T-shirt and pair of shorts.He seemed like a tourist looking for directions to a nearby beach.

To be fair,he was a actually a very good looking man.

He stared at my room in disgust.
"Haven't you heard of a house keeper?"He said staring at the heap of clothes by the door.

"....what's happening to me....what's going on?"I said closing the bathroom door behind me.

He seemed a little distracted.Perhaps it was the musty smell ,or untidiness of the room.

" got what you asked for didn't you...?" He asked looking casually about my space.

"....look,...I don't know what's going on....I thought It was a dream,....I was drunk, was late....."

"You'll likely be detained for a couple of days...." He said staring at a pair of boxers on the floor.

Yep,he definitely had a limp.

And what kind of name was Vodun,anyway?I wondered.

"This isn't what I asked for....this isn't..."I began.
But once again he cut me off.

"...When a Billion Dollars suddenly pops up in someone's bank account in Nigeria,....people tend to get suspicious."He said.

Long pause

"What are you.....are you like a Demon or something...?"I asked looking him over

But seriously,who or what was he?I thought.

A witch,a spirit or figment of my imagination?

Maybe I was hallucinating.

Maybe this were the product of a bad break up.

He smiled at me the way a loving father would to his child.

"You  have two wishes left...use them wisely" he said.

My phone was ringing again.
It was Mr Ahmed again.

"....what do I do?" I asked him. All this was getting scary.

Phone was still ringing.

".....what ever you're going to do,do it quickly....they probably have your address ...."Vodun Said with a mild chuckle.

"God!I just wish the money wasn't in my account .....I just wish I were a normal guy with a horde of women chasing after  instead of worrying about being gang raped in prison...."I said.

I was talking really fast and pacing back and forth my messy room like some mad person.I had to think.

Could I "wish" this all away?I thought

That would leave me with just one wish.

And what would happen to all that money?

Where would it go?I needed to opportunity to rub it in Vivian's face one day.

Then it hit me.

I could wish for more wishes.

Genius. I thought.

Just genius.

I could feel the sweat rolling down my skin.

I was so excited by this new Idea.

Vodun just kept on smiling.

Phone had stopped ringing.

"...What are you smiling about...?"I asked curiously.

Could he read minds too?

Vodun took a small bow.

"Your wish is my command" He said delightfully.

"W-wait....I didn't wish any thing..."I said frantically.

"You just did,my friend and're out of wishes"he said delightfully.

Was this a trick?What was he talking about?

"You are out of wishes. Very few have this opportunity....I will be back in seven days for your soul ....enjoy your women while you can.....bye!"Vodun said with a chuckle.

"Wait...when did I make two more wishes? tricked"I was walking towards him,when he snapped his fingers.

Once again,I was lying on my bed staring at the ceiling.

Was it a dream? I wondered.

Then I heard them.

Hundreds of voices....female voices.

The sounds were getting louder by the second.

They were coming from my gate.

I rushed off the bed.Thankfully,this time I didn't have to worry about a migraine.

Once again,I stumbled over some clothes....and shoes on the floor.

I heard their voices  chanting in unison as I approached the window.

"We want Iyke!!! We want Iyke!!! We want Iyke!!!"

Outside my gate was at least a hundred or so women(young and old) with several large Placards with words like;
 'Iyke,I want to have your babies. ... I want you now Iyke......My body is yours Iyke"

That last One was particularly disturbing because the woman holding it had to be at least Eighty years old.
They kept on chanting together.

"We want Iyke!!!"

I gulped.

That was five days ago.

As I write this now,I am standing on the roof of a fast food eatery. The entire building is surrounded by women....all shapes and sizes.young and old.

I haven't been able to sleep for the past five days.

I have been sexually abused and man handled more times than I can count.

I barely managed to escape my own home with my life.

It has been  hell.

"We want Iyke!!!"
If I hear that chant one more time,I'll kill myself.

But then again if the fall from this height didn't kill me,these lustful demons down there would rape me to death.

I have tried calling Vodun but got no response.

I have brought out a small mirror I managed to smuggle out of my house when the 'horde' attacked.

"We want Iyke!!!"

Right now,I'd gladly give him anything, even my soul for some peace.


"We want Iyke!!!"

"Oh God! Where is he???"

I stared at him in silence wondering just how drunk I was.

Had I finished an entire bottle?

I continued looking at this strange police man as the night wore on.

Somewhere in the alcoholic fumes, I recalled staring at my watch not too long ago(which couldn't have been up to an hour)

But then again,I couldn't really be sure of anything could I ?

I mean,there I was at maybe 2:00AM or so parked by the side of a lonely road talking to a Weird Police man who had just told me he was a Genie with the power to grant me three wishes.

PASTOR BOSCO episode 3

Calling the small room Pastor Bosco sat in an office would be like calling a Batcher a Serviced Flat.

It was essientially a small room,with a single window,a leaking ceiling, unpainted walls,and an untiled floor.

It had two plastic chairs and an old wooden table with enough nails on it to start a small carpentery workshop.

Thankfully,the heat wasn't so bad today.

The killer carefully cut off the left breast. Who ever thought one person could have so much blood? Looking at her face, killer noted that she still looked proud even in death. Proud and beautiful, as she had always been referred to whenever she made headlines, which was often. The boob didnt look so perky and attractive in killer's hand. Just a blob of fatty flesh. She was such a beautiful woman, her dead skin didnt look pale yet, as rigor mortis had not set in.


Blood dripped from the machete, and the smell of death hung in the air, Opuene looked at Isaac’s body, and tears filled her eyes. She threw the machete on the floor, and bent down to check for a pulse. A voice in her head, told her that he was obviously dead, considering the amount of blood in the room. She had no idea what to do. She searched her bag for her phone, but stopped herself before she dialed the number. She had to think.

Time seemed to move slower as she stared at  the nozzle of the gun being pressed against her husband's temple.

The stink of fear was over powering in the living room as the married couple stared in terror at the three intruders that had broken into their home.

The three masked men had bound the couples' hands behind their backs and forced them to their knees.

"Please..."  she heard Tokini say as her husband pleaded for their lives.

KOLLUPIA episode 6

She was trapped and she knew it.The men didn't sound like they were going anywhere.

For the past ten hours or so she'd heard them search the house,thrash her place,fight each other and then fall asleep.

They'd wake up and do it all over again.
She had to remain perfectly still.She thought.
though this compartment Micheal had built for her was safe enough,she doubted it could survive ramming in the event that her hiding place was discovered.

No matter how Bad ass you think you are,there's always some one badder……..

So there I was thinking I'd heard the last of that mystery caller.

I was on my way to see Celestine..Yes I said it Celestine.

......BROWN EYES.....

I opened my eyes.

It was still night time.

I could see few stars in the night sky.There were the sounds of crickets and frogs coming from nearby.
I knew I was by a river.I wasn't sure how I knew this, but....... I just knew.

He looked at her sleeping form, and his mind was made up. He picked up his phone and dialed a number. The voice at the other end, had been expecting his call. Three minutes later, all the arrangements had been made, and he joined her in bed.

The next morning, Itohan woke up and couldn’t find Usiosefe. She was alarmed, considering the discussion they had before going to bed last night.
She got up, and went outside only to meet him coming into the compound, with a smile on his face. She felt lighter, maybe everything would be fine after all.

“Bankole I know how much you love your mother, I love my mum no less but…”

“But what Ada? I wonder where all this is coming from” Bankole interjected looking at his wife in dismay.

“Baby listen to me, I know how unbelievable it sounds, but your mother doesn’t like me. She has never hidden that fact from me. She is nice to me in your presence, but the moment your back is turned, she turns into an entirely different person.” Ada told her husband.

KOLLUPIA episode 5


Came their chants.But Opuwari could barely hear them.

He could barely feel the scorching surface of the concrete road against his backside.

The machete was still trembling in his hand.the hilt felt strangely familiar in his grasp as the blade still dripped with the pregnant woman's blood.

Sunday, 5 April 2015


Pastor bosco stared at the buses. Getting into a bus and preaching was risky. The last time he tried it,he was shocked just how stingy people could be. At the end of the bus ride after wasting his holy saliva to preach all he'd gotten was Forty Naira.can you imagine that?FORTY NAIRA!!

The bus had at least Ten People inside it and that's all they could give? Useless people and they wonder why God doesn't answer their prayers.mtchewww!

He got into one of the buses, still pondering on his ordeal. The fare was One Hundred Naira and right off he'd known that his famous "the love of money..." Wouldn't work with the large muscular bus conductor.

Daisy opened one of her eyes, and looked at Tommy who had both eyes shut and was seriously praying. She shook her head, and kept staring at him with just one eye.
“Lord give my wife the ability to be understanding, she should know that the economy is melting down, she should know that things are not easy, give her a heart to manage, to manage for love, to manage as the home maker…..”

Tommy went on for five more minutes, at the end of which Daisy shouted a resounding “AMEN”

Daisy sat at the dining table, waiting for Tommy to come out of the room for breakfast. He came in, looking dapper in a grey suit. She stood up and served him breakfast. She waited for him to start his meal, then she said “Honey bunch, so how much are you leaving for me for what we discussed last night?”
 Tommy looked up at her
“Sugar pie, you of all people should know how it is, the construction sector is having a real problem, cash is not coming in. I don’t have any money”

Daisy looked at her husband and smiled. “Bee hive, are you saying nothing for me?”

KOLLUPIA ...episode 4

The room was still.

All eyes were fixed upon Opuwari as he pointed the rifle at The Soldier, who didn't flinch or seem uneasy at Opuwari's obvious stupidity.

Long silence.

Henry didn't like Pentecostal Churches for three reasons;
1. they were too noisy,
2.the Pastors moved around too much whilst preaching(which he found a little disconcerting)
3. they had one too many offerings

The truth was, he didn't like ANY church.

His knowledge of the Bible was limited to;
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth..... "
 "...for God so loved the world......"

And lets not forget;

 ".....and on the Seventh day, He rested....."Which was Henry's Champion excuse for staying home on Sundays.

"...If God did it,...why can't I?" he'd always say.

"So...uh." I began. His good looks were over powering. "" "Black." He replied. "Richard Bla...
