I Grew Up In The Slums…

I never really understood why my parent were very protective of me.
I never understood why I was never allowed to play with kids or why I was never sent on errands.
.
.
I never understood why my mom and dad always sat outside when I was finally given 20minutes to play with other kids.
I never understood why they had to be so damn protective. And why most times my mom was happy I wasn’t fat and grew breasts on time.
I never understood why she was so damn protective and why my dad was strict.
I guess now I know why.
.
.
I was like the tiniest in the compound. The other kids that grew fat and didn’t look their age were unlucky.
First, it was a mature adult in his 30’s doing some crazy shit to them and then one boy, one boy that was possessed. Actually, he’s got to be possessed. Only possessed people acted like he did.
.
.
He was the last out of 5 boys but turned out the black sheep of the family.
Back then, I heard how those Abokis(that’s what they are called, right?) sold charms.
They had medicines that could make a man last long in bed.
They had the ones that will make him penis be erect. They had different ones. One that made me scared was the “touch and follow”
.
.
This boy in my compound made very good use of these charms.
I’ve seen it myself. He touches any lady, she loses her senses and next she follows him any where and any direction he takes.
He walks to his house, sleeps with her, walks out while she follows completely lost and after minutes, she gets herself back.
.
.
This was bad because these ladies never knew what had happened to them. To at least, take precautions.
They will just find themselves missing their cycle and being pregnant. How come?
They won’t know.
.
.
Somehow it was now traced to these abokis and they were chased completely from our street.
10years later, they came back.
They are now called #Meruwa
.
.
.
.
So I’ve been trying not to say anything.
I’ve been in the shadows. I’ve seen pictures. I’ve read different opinions. I’ve read different plot twists to this.
.
.
Well, first thing I asked myself, “what would I do if Ese were my daughter?”
“What would I do if she were my sister?” Or friend?
.
.
First time I read the story, I knew Jazz was involved. And the good God knows how pissed I’ve been reading opinions and trash talk from people claiming it’s love. Claiming she wants to be a Muslim.
#sigh…
.
.
My mom was one over protective woman. Dad wasn’t innocent either. Regardless, I never wanted to leave home. I never wanted to follow any of my school crushes or street crushes away.
I understood how the Jazz works. Ese has been jazzed, use grammar and call it hypnotized.
.
.
.
That majority of Muslims and Northerners are turning a blind eye to this is just disgusting and disappointing.
.
.
Well, I’m not in the mood for you guys.
Ese is 5months pregnant, right?
.
.
Rather than take her to TB Joshua.
A good doctor should be sought for.
That bastard thing, that thing that will be her pain in her life if she gives birth to it should be terminated.
A good Doctor in Nigeria should volunteer to abort it.
If money is the problem, let them tell us.
I will be the first to contribute to that abortion.
.
.
.
It’s a known fact Ese’s life will never remain the same again.
Her life has been ruined by Yinusa, by the press, and by everyone who has come in contact with her.
Those who should have known better. Those that should have been more experienced.
You don’t show her face. You don’t do that.
Never!!!
.
.
No Nigerian will get married to Ese.
Dating? I doubt…
Ese’s head has been messed up with.
I was such an innocent kid when I was 14. I had no problem in life. Ese’ has been raped. Imagine her cries at night. The rough sex and everything.
.
.
.
As for Festus Keyamo. I can’t believe I used to crush on that bastard. .
.
.
To the Muslims that think Ese being a wife is better than prostitution, I got no words for you mehn.
.
.
.
Well, if I were Ese and I understood how life works and how it is, I just might end my life.
Seen her face? How strong it was?
.
.
.
That’s a kid that has lost touch with humanity.
.
.
.
What a fucked up religion!!!
