Thankfully, we didn’t have much bruises though I hit my chest on the Keke and it still hurts. The only person that obtained serious bruises was a pregnant woman that was standing by the road




“On 10th January 2024, I and 3 of my course mates were supposed to go to Onitsha to buy gifts for our lecturers.  We’ve written our final exams and our induction is coming up soon, the whole class contributed money to gift our lecturers for their efforts throughout our study years.

That morning, I woke up feeling unusual and I called one of my course mates that is supposed to go with us and told her that I wasn’t sure I could go again because I wasn’t feeling alright.

She somehow convinced me again and as I was dressing up, I remembered the popular stories of how people loose their phones and valuable items at Onitsha so I dropped my iPhone at home and left.

We boarded a bus and the bus was fully loaded with bags of people returning from the village. A particular bag that was tied on top of the bus kept falling and the driver kept stopping to tie it back.

It was becoming very annoying as the bag fell the seventh time, someone volunteered to carry the bag inside the car and it solved the problem.

We finally arrived to where we would alight and board a Keke to the market. We entered Keke and just three poles away from where we boarded, an incoming vehicle collided into our Keke and our Keke summersaulted.

Thankfully, we didn’t have much bruises though I hit my chest on the Keke and it still hurts. The only person that obtained serious bruises was a pregnant woman that was standing by the road.

We came down and after little back and forth, we continued our movement and we got to the market. We bought all the electronic gadgets, wrapper etc that we budgeted to buy and loaded them in the bus we chartered there.

The 18-seater bus was filled with the things we bought, we had to tie some of them at the top of the car so we can have space to sit down.

Our movement was very swift until we got to a checkpoint somewhere in Orsu. We passed that checkpoint while we were going so we didn’t sense any trouble.

It was about 7:40pm, two men flashed their touch at us and asked out driver to clear and park. They were wearing a black polo and trouser with a black headtie.

As our driver parked, they asked us to come down and we did. They searched us and took all the money we had, our phones, the whole money the driver had on him and his phone too. Other cars were passing there and nobody cared to interfere.

They asked me why I had just a Nokia torch phone and I told them that it’s what I use, they searched my bag and saw sanitary pad and didn’t bother to search further because if they did, they would have seen my money that I wrapped in a tissue inside my bag.

They asked us to shift down towards the bush with them and we did. While we were moving down, they called another man who is their supposed leader and the man came with a ladies bike on same attire.

He asked the driver to go and move the car and he started walking to the bus, the man corked his gun and said “Unah still dey here?, run!”.

We started running and he released a gunshot though not in our direction. We ran into the bus and our driver moved.

We all broke down in tears including the old man(driver). They made away with all our money and phones.

We got to our school and borrowed money from some students on ground and paid the driver. That night I couldn’t sleep, whenever I close my eyes I keep hearing the sound of corking a gun and then “unah still dey here?, run”.

We narrated what happened to people and they all said that it’s a normal thing for those security men at that spot. They are officers in the daytime and robbers at night. People that are meant to protect us!

Perhaps if I had listened to my instincts, I wouldn’t have gone with them. I’m grateful no life was lost both in the accident and the robbery. People need to be more careful and possibly avoid that Orsu road once it’s 6pm.”

Lost my sister 4 months ago, but I’m 2months pregnant for her husband and we wish to get married



I was actually in my final year in the university when i was persuaded by my beloved elder sister to come live with her after my graduation, then, It was just 7months gone after her wedding in which i was the chief bridesmaid. She said that she was missing my presence & needed someone around to chat & keep her company. She was 3 months pregnant so I didn’t hesitate to accept her invitation..

After my graduation i finally moved in. It was 2 months later when I realized that, I still have feelings for her husband. Truth is, I fell for the guy, the very first time that my sister introduced him to me as her boyfriend, they had just started seing each other & Eversince then, I’ve s3cr3tely been in love with him & haven’t been able to love any other guy nor keep a relationship, he’s always on my mind, I’ve always imagined us together & deep down, wish for them to separate, so i could have a chance to be with him.

All these yrs, I’ve tried to control myself, hiding my feelings but, it all came back the moment i started living with them. seing him everyday, I couldn’t help it anymore. So, i made a move on him & somehow he fell for me too, he loves me as much as i do. I see & feel it each time we’re together. We’ve been s3-cr3tly seing each other for over 4 months untill when my sister was due for delivery & Sadly, she didn’t make it but her child survived. Unfortunately again, the baby also join her mom after being with us for almost a month. This was a sad moment for the whole family..

4 months have passed & God has decided to wipe our sorrow, now we are happy & expecting a baby too, I’m currently 2 months gone, We intend to get married soon & I believe my sister will be happy wherever that she is. Her husband is a good man & I know that she wouldn’t want us to loose him to another family. I also believe that, This is destiny, all these things happened for a reason just so we could be together. God’s ways are not that of man. We haven’t told anyone yet about our plans, don’t know how family will see this but I also believe, it isn’t so much of a big deal marrying my late sister’s husband especially as they didn’t have any kids together. But we just don’t know how to go about it..

Pls, help guide us through this, we need advise we’re so much in love & really wish to get married..”

I’m Hiv/Aids positve and I really wish that, my boyfriend also gets infected, so that he can marry me



Please, I need your advice, so, am going to be all honest here. Actually, i’m tired of living a reckless life and I really wish to settle down especially now that I’ve found someone that i really love and care so much about, Infact, I’m so deeply in love with this guy. For a very long time, i haven’t felt like this for anyman. He has got everything that i want in a man and even more.

He’s Handsome, rich and very successful, he’s so caring and nice to me. makes sure that, I lack nothing. I’m 100% sure that he’ll make a good husband. So I’ve been looking forward and hoping that he’ll propose to me soon. Now, lately, I’ve been trying everything possible so that he also gets infected and becomes positive too, so when he discovers that am having the virus as well, it wouldn’t in anyway hurt our relationship since it wouldn’t matter anymore then..

So, I’ve made sure that he trust me. Countless times, I’ve insisted on us doing it without protection and he’ll always accept. Sometimes I even use my nails to create a hole on the plastic and  will often kiss him when my tongue has a cu t.  but now, I’m confused and do not understand because after doing all these, I’ll bring home a fake results  showing that I’m negative and insist that he also goes for a test as well and even follow him to the hospital but am always disappointed and confused because surprisingly the test always comes out negative showing that he isn’t infected. So am really confused here..

I love this guy so much that i really wish to spend the rest of my life with him. I wouldn’t be able to take it if, i should loose him reason why, I can’t tell him about my health status. if i do he’ll leave me. Pls do not get me wrong, I’m just a girl who is inlove & trying to protect her relationship, every lady in my shoe would definitely do thesame thing. I’m 31yrs old & really wish to settle down. I feel this could be the only chance I’ve got but it’s proving difficult “

I left my 6months old boy sleeping at home with my husband just so I could rush to the nearest market and purchase food and some baby’s needs for the week But Never Knew It’s a bad Day



Before I left, it was as if my 6 months old baby knew something was going to go wrong, He suddenly woke up from sleep just as I was about to steo out. Then i went back to breastfeed him thinking he was hungry but instead he refused & held me so tight while crying loudly as if he didn’t want me to go & as if he had a nightmare or something. I was so surprised because, never has it happened before since I gave birth to him. So, I tried singing him a lullaby & successfully pampered him back to sleep & quickly tip toed out of the house still leaving him with his daddy. Went out of the gate & took a taxi..

We were about to cross a bridge were, it seems like the brakes of the car failed & the driver led the car into this river beneath the bridge, we got trapped & started to drown. I can’t remember any other thing apart from that. I only woke up this evening to find myself in the hospital..

I want to thank God for sending these boys who saved my life & that of the driver. Pls help me thank this good God, for I can’t thank him enough, Oh my God  I keep asking myself, what if I had taken my baby along with me had it been he insisted on crying before i left.. He has proven himself once again”
