On the 8th of January this year, I traveled to Edo State with a fellow corper whom I trusted very much. We were friends in camp and fortunately we got posted to the same local government, so it seemed like it was a plan arranged by heaven. So on the evening of Jan. 8th, we were in his friends room off campus and I slept off watching a movie on his laptop. Some time later I woke up ‎and found him touching me.

Yesterday, I shared an eyewitness account of an alleged assassination attempt on Kingsway road, Ikoyi. (Read here) But according to a friend of the victim, it wasn't an assassination attempt...it's even scarier. It was armed robbery in traffic in Ikoyi. I say this is scarier because with an assassination attempt, you know that they are targeting a particular person but armed robbery means anyone can be a victim. To be shot at by 1pm in broad day light in Lagos traffic is incredibly scary. Read the man's version of events after the cut...
