Thoughts Lead To Appreciation


I have just finished a meal of moi-moi brought by my loyal friend Mama Blessing.

I thought of taking photographs of the dish only after emptying the plate!!!!

Taking pictures of stomach contents presents a bit of a problem!!!

In any case, she has been a remarkable ally such that when I call her she thinks I am short of funds and promises to send me meals.

I have to reassure her my calls are for pleasantries and not to alert her on my condition.

The evening I returned from a three-day detention at Sokoto Command of State Security Service ~SSS/ DSS, her words were:

Always tell me anything that is happening to you.

Earlier in late August, she stood firm with me while I spent 15 days in remand in Sokoto State Prison.

No level of ethnic intimidation has prompted her to distance herself from me.

She is Nigeria.


In prison, I was pampered by wardens, unique women, who have no time for vile conspiracies.

They are Nigeria.

Circumstances that led to my remand also opened the door for me to meet a gentle, loving and trustworthy man.

I also met several other respectable men and women of the Nigeria Police Force ~NPF, including the deputy Commissioner ~DC.

Each one of them is Nigeria.

While ethnic bullies demand I change my lifestyle to suit them, my friends embrace me as I am.

– The one and only.


The manager of my residence is one of a kind.

As is my lawyer A.S.

He owes me viewing fee, as he saw me without my Niqab at SSS Sokoto.

I am grateful to the Legal Aid Council Of Nigeria, Sokoto and my second lawyer J.V.W.

Of course, I must recognise all of my present and previous friends especially D.A.B, and U.U.T both of whom played enormous roles to my comfort in the first half of my eight-year residence in Sokoto.

To Lagos, I owe much for there do I have long-standing friendships and some of whom still cover my bills.

– Long-distance expenditures!!!

My long-time best friend, Nurudeen, I hope you are all right. You no longer take your calls.

Every one of them is Nigeria.

I appreciate all of my online friends and well-wishers.

You have stayed the course.

I conclude with kindness to my Sleeping Beauty!!!

Wondering who that is?

To be continued!!! Serious laughter!!!

All right!! I shall reduce the suspense.

Sleeping Beauty is what I call Sokoto State Police Commissioner, to whom I addressed a text message that I tend to hold tightly to anyone who cares for me!!!

He is cooperating.

Thank you Nigeria.
