“We thought it was just the usual catcalling.”


May 2, 2019

Ekosodin is a student neighbourhood near my school, and it’s famous for all the wrong reasons. I was walking in the area with a friend once when we heard someone shout, “Fine girl wassup na?”

We just assumed, “oh it’s just boys catcalling.” He kept at it, and we just ignored. All of a sudden, he just switched up and shouted, “Na me you dey form for?! Una want make I pursue you?” I don’t even know who ran first, I just know we took off, turning around every corner, running over dustbins and docking about.

We don’t even know if he actually pursued us, but we didn’t care.
