Columns and Opinions across Nigerian Newspapers


Still at large - I got a call from a fraudster today. I believe it was a con artist since he refused to give his name and identified himself as, ‘emi ni, lati London.’ Yes my people, that’s how thick the chap was and I’m not sure what planet he thinks he’s on! The sheer un-sophistication was irritating and maybe it was meant to be part of a new ‘rustic’ appeal. I was supposed to ‘recognise’ the voice and infer from the friendly tone that it was a long-lost acquaintance from yonder.
