So Zikoko Went To The People’s Protest And This Is Our Story

February 7, 2017

1. So we saw that there was going to be a protest and we decided to attend.

2. Because to be honest, we are freedom fighters and patriotic Nigerians.

3. Also, there was no light in the office!

4. So we carried camera and marched to the National Stadium, like:

5. When we got there and saw all the security personnel, we were like:

6. We quickly ran inside to stand with our fellow “bloody civilians”.

7. Before somebody will chop slap on top of “fighting for our rights”!

8. When we saw the low turnout, we were confused oh!

9. Because everybody on social media was forming “Young Fela” and freedom fighter!

10. But now we could not find them.

11. Even the musicians and celebrities that were using all their power to type in CAPS on social media.

12. Their activism apparently na audio oh!

13. We dey hear am, we no dey see am!

14. Before we could say “When is daddy Bubu coming back” it was time to start walking!

15. We walked from the national stadium to the national theatre with panache and style.

16. And whenever anyone asked us which media house we were from, we said with pride…

17. After some time we realised the police and extra security were there to make sure it didn’t get out of hand.

18. When one of the speakers said “we will fight for Nigeria even if we have to die”, we were like:

19. Sorry please who is writing list of die-makers can they remove our name?

20. When we got back to the office all our colleagues were like:

21. Because we were sweating like christmas goats, and so tired we just collapsed in the office!

22. They were just jealous, because they don’t have what it takes to be real freedom fighters!

23. And do you know the fantastic thing?

24. There was still no light in the office!
