adaobi (1)

adaobi is lifeless.
on a cold september night of 96' he sits and smokes his favorite Henson and Benz at mama obi's bar just along the town square.


 it is raining heavily, the kind of rain that made him wonder who had enraged Chukwu.

neglecting the weaknesses of island Ajebutters and JJC pedestrians. at night i was the city of J-Town after 8pm.
quiet. eerily so.
soldiers securing fences of the selected few.
smoking stuff and drinking liquor,
with AK-forty-somethings to bring down any rebel who dared to equal. he was the busy streets of Lasgidi at night:
the traffic, in French translated to, "la circulation"
right up from Admitalty Way through the Toll gates.
Cars honking, drivers cursing, almost excitedly at each other.
LASTMA officials obeying the call to rip-off 'rich' drivers. …
