iyosayi14 Creative Writing, General 1 Comment

Isn’t it strange how suddenly things can change? What started as a peaceful protest turned on its head after being hijacked by our very own Government and its sponsored thugs. Overnight the feeling of togetherness and hope young Nigerians relished for two weeks turned into sorrow and despair. Tuesday, October 20, 2020 (now commonly referred to as Dark Tuesday or …

THE FLIGHT

People drift apart. This he has come to know… Christopher Efosa sat at the check-in lounge of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International airport. His gaze ran the lengths of the hall, his focus on the faces that walked by. He looked up at the clock hanging undisturbed on the wall.
