Kunle, 28 years old….. Studied Medicine, is a specialist in the O & G field, of Yoruba origin, and the only child of his parents. Lost his dad immediately after our WASSCE but Iya Kunle is such an industrious and hard-working woman. Despite her husband’s demise. She never gave up and doubled down on her petty trading in Balogun Market to train Kunle to the highest level.
Happy to see she’s alive and reaping the fruits of her labor.

Abdul is 27 years old…… Our learned colleague. The very person that gives us the backing to cause little mayhem in society. He’s our lawyer and even without paying a dime, he sure will represent us in court if any need be. Abdul came from a very influential family. An Ibibio man who love swept his feet and took him to the far North to pick an Aisha for marriage. Still wonder why he bears Abdul, not Okon but not much of a worry cause my friend is doing amazing in his profession.

Then, here’s ME…. The prodigal one. Ekene is my name. Both parents are Igbos and unlike Abdul, I came from a family where we were managing to survive each day. This didn’t deter my parents. They gave me the best education there is to give the first son of an only son in an Igbo family. I’m 27 years old, the same as Abdul but I’m still roaming around within the four walls of the university, extorting my parents (not minding how bad things are at home). I can’t go home, I have no certificate to show. I’ve been rusticated. I’m only trying to get as much money from anyone as I could. I need to start up something for myself. I came here to study Civil Engineering but at this point, I need a real-life construction and not the other way round.

It all started back then in secondary school.
