Thursday 19th July, 2012 was another horrifying day in Lagos.   Lion Building Police Station area  is where I parked my car today  and where I gathered this story that has kept me in awe. I am still in shock of this news. As unreal as it sounds, its true because I validated  the story.

Four JSS3 students of a nearby secondary school chattered a “keke marwa” to Ajah. They told the driver to wait for them, while one of them stayed in the vehicle and the other three went into a nearby house. Shortly afterwards, two of then came out and when the driver queried, he was told that the fourth guy is with their teacher, and that  he is the teacher’s favourite. As they drove off the driver noticed that they were looking into a black nylon bag that they just brought with them from the teacher’s place. He then noticed that it was full of money. When he probed, they said it was for them to deliver  an errand.
