Missing things in Shokoto

04 July 2014, 14:03 Onyeji Dominic

I don't really know what people see each time they look under the Sun. What I know is that certain things are seen both in the right and in the wrong. I see them clearly each time I look as an erudite seer from East where the Sun rises.

Truth is that the wrong things are greater in number. Just imagine! One of my fantastic friends left Lagos to a distant place known to Nigerians as Sokoto. He embarked on the long journey because something was missing. He thought that the missing thing was there in Sokoto but when he arrived, he suddenly noticed that the missing thing was inside left pocket of his "shokoto". The term "shokoto" means  trousers in a native Language. What a stupid thing in the wrong under the Sun?

I have to say this because someone I know happened to borrow money to buy a computer. He had a change of 1k out of the total sum he had borrowed. The 1k is hiding inside his "shokoto" while he is very busy looking for it everywhere. What a thing?
