Author of When Silence Becomes too Loud, Chidera Okolie told a story one week ago which got us cracked up in the office when someone shared it with us all. We meant to publish it but somehow had so many stories on our hands that day and ended up not publishing it. I was going through Instagram today and saw it again and remembered.
Well, this hilarious author and final year law student narrated how she encountered policemen and how she “compensated” herself when they decided to be spoil-sports for her.
Well, hear from the horse’s mouth.
042 is quite peaceful..could be boring sometimes! So I decided to find fun on this beautiful Easter day with my lil sis…then this policeman, sent by ‘them’ decided to spoil my fun. Started with ‘happy Easter and I did reciprocate. He repeated like 10 times and I never failed to respond with a smile. Then his countenance changed. Asked for every single thing…all accurate. In a bid to frustrate me, he asked that I stand by the roadside while he ‘inspects’ my papers! Ok o! I stood for ten minutes before I decided not to let anybody spoil the fun the Lord already planned for me (somebody shout alleluia)…so I played my jam #godwin by @koredebello and @donjazzy in my head and danced away…right in the middle of the road, Showing the peace sign to the motorists so they know there is no cause for alarm! (Before the joke will reach asylum levels) Brethren before I knew it, the flabbergasted gentleman handed my papers back to me and asked me to leave in a double!! It was not a small something! Our God will always win! everything I do na God win (Drops mic, gathers ‘shoulder high’ coat, adjusts hat and walks away) photocredit my equally crazy sis from yesterday!
