HOMECOMING

Neto sat comfortably in the back seat of the SUV as it breezed to church; it was a bleak Sunday morning. Turning his head to the left, he couldn’t help but notice how the landscape, the feel of the vehicle and the cloudy weather of the day threw him back to a fateful Sunday morning in August, five years prior. Then, an Indomie-branded bus transported him and forty-plus weary, homesick souls back to church after a week-long teens camp. He couldn’t exactly call it a camp, but a mass gathering in a not-so-secluded posh school which felt like home in every way, only that it wasn’t. The night before his return was camp fire night. It was supposed to be an epic conclusion- not just to the undeniably eventful camp, but possibly to his seventeen years of living and studying in Nigeria. Like Batman v Superman, it fell below his expectations.

Yes, the food and snacks were good. The open-air performances next to the camp fire had a primal feel to them. He had a decent time with his friends. But when he gazed up at the silver-dotted indigo sky that night, after his ‘good’ bye, he knew it just wasn’t it.

The ride back to church that bleak Sunday morning was almost wordless. His phone was long dead, so he couldn’t listen to music or play games or chat with his friends after being AWOL for seven long days. And he wasn’t much of a reader. He could barely talk to the pretty girl seated next to him. There was no point starting anything transient, as transient as what he and Ebiere had. At least, what he thought he and Ebiere had. The very impetus behind his embarking on a final camping experience became the very one behind his desire to depart. Stripped of his companions, with an undesirable weather, Neto’s thoughts revolved around the uncertain life ahead and the painful one behind. He was indeed kissed by a rose. The only problem was that its thorns sunk in deep, so deep that its petals fell helplessly to their demise, leaving Neto to reel from the searing pain.
The same pain he bottled up within and corked so tightly for so many months.

Neto remembered how everyone was told to drop penned-down prayer requests into a set of boxes, before that night. He remembered his parents were on the brink of a divorce, prior to the commencement of camp. He didn’t even care if they still loved each other or not. All he wanted was for them to not separate. He penned down the request. Neto also desperately wanted New York University to consider his application and admit him. He wasn’t considering his Nigerian option in CU. He knew what he wanted and he had faith in the possibility of success. He penned it down. Having stood to submit it, Neto remembered Ebiere. Inasmuch as he wanted to be with her, to spend the rest of his life with her, his ambition was also important. He wasn’t even sure if she still felt the same love, like or whatever it was she felt. If indeed she ever felt anything.

Nevertheless, he got back down and wrote that he did not want to be separated from Ebiere. It contradicted his second request, but he didn’t care. It was very kamikaze, since only one of his final two requests could logically be fulfilled, or even none. But he wrapped it, went to the platform and dropped it in one of the boxes.
The day after that, he watched as the numerous boxes rose up to the heavens and Heaven in flames after being prayed over. He turned to his left. He saw her standing alone, in the dark. At that moment, Neto had his own camp fire burning within him. He approached her. He made to ensure a most satisfactory goodbye, with a most memorable parting gift. But the rest as they say is history.
Neto got down from the SUV as his eyes ran through the church building. God had granted his second camp request. And his first, too. He hadn’t returned to the country ever since he left. He hadn’t been to the church since that bleak Sunday morning. Basking in the spirit of homecoming, a wave of nostalgic feelings swept through him. The grey clouds still hadn’t ceased, similar to the way they didn’t cease when he got down from the bus five years prior. He had returned then, as well. He said his goodbyes to everyone he could see, to every soul he could salvage. Five years on, on another bleak Sunday morning, none of those faces could be seen. Apparently, everyone had their respective five years to change, to evolve and for some, to conclude.

As the clouds began to drop snippets for the upcoming blockbuster, Neto made it to the spot he and Ebiere last saw before they parted ways. As expected, she was already standing there, her back turned to him. She was facing the same iconic landscape he faced five years prior. The blockbuster loomed even greater; neither he nor Ebiere moved an inch. He remembered how, at that same spot five years ago, she placed her hand on his shoulder and changed everything. The look in her eyes that day could have meant anything. What she said could have meant anything. What they actually meant, Neto still didn’t know. He would never know.

The blockbuster began in earnest. Inevitably, slowly, she finally turned back to face him. The same gap between them as they stood five years ago repeated itself as lightning streaked well above their heads. Lightning could strike the same spot twice, after all. He saw the same look in her eyes. He saw the same hand making it towards his shoulder, but he caught it gently. As he grasped it, lost in her eyes, an avalanche of memories came crashing down; memories of a not-so-distant life that felt like an eternity prior, memories that could never be re-experienced. But he let go.
Slowly, he turned back and made his way to the interior without looking back at her as the blockbuster neared its climax. Nothing had changed. Nothing would.

LSS GAMES: PLAYERS TO WATCH

With the LSS games seemingly drawing closer ,we are obliged to take an indepth look into the teams as well as marquee players with the potential of making the tournament worth while .
CLASS OF 2021

Newbies to the games but certainly not lacking in confidence .The class in their first competitive match played wonderfully well,only to be hard done by a late samba penalty during this year’s novelty match against the faculty team .A team consisting of young ,determined talents and would be looking to cause an upset in this year’s games .

1.DAMILOLA

The pacy winger has been deployed by his team to play as second striker for the purpose of the games .With the ability to ghost past defenders and good hold up play in his arsenal,he would definitely be their main goal threat .Scoring on his debut for the class in the 2-1 defeat to the faculty team,he has gone on to impress .Winning the inaugural Flufa club system with Vado FC and hitting in 3 goals in as many matches .

He would definitely be a force to reckon with .

2.EZE 

Another player to anticipate is versatile defensive midfielder Eze.Although originally a defensive midfielder ,Eze can also feature in different defensive positions this he did for club side Dorchester UNITED were he played as a make shift defender for the suspended lenny ,instrumental in his team getting to the final .

The hardtackling midfielder ,whose main shortcoming is his lack of good passing range ,other than that a joy to watch.
CLASS OF 2020
A team with abundance of talent ,but however lacked productivity last year registering just a single point at the games .Would be looking to amend that broken record at this year’s games .Hoping that some certain players turn up,those players include :
1.AYODEJI DADA

The influential talisman of the class of 20′ .last year’s highest goal scorer at the competition as well as leading marksman during the FLUFA CLUB SYSTEM tournament ,although his goals couldn’t see his team through .

His strength lies in his pace,trickery,great ball control ,balance ,agility ,and especially a great eye for goal.

With over 15 goals scored in competitive matches for his class ,a player which all teams have to take note of especially the class of 17 ,whom he scored a HATTRICK against last year sealing a thrilling 3-3 draw .

Playing in a variety of positions ,either as the main striker ,the attacking midfielder or even on the wings .

However he seems to tire out easily,apart from that ,a man in fine goal scoring form.a star in the making .
2.EFEMENA 

Another player to look out for during the games is all-rounder utility player efemena.

The versatile playmaker ,One of the very few players in the faculty boasting the ability to play anywhere on the pitch if required ,but usually been deployed as a forward where he can hurt defences.

He brings the experience to the team alongside other key players ,with his industry,pace,trickery,tenacity,a good passing range and a great eye for goal ,although couldn’t find the net for his class during last year’s games also with over 10 competitive goals for the class of 20′ .

  
3.FADIGHA KHALIL

The Captain of the Law Class of 20 Football team. He is the heart and soul of the team and his passion for the game is second to none. He is known for his ability to drive forward from the Centre of the midfield and draw challenges from opponents, even though unfortunately, he has failed to find the back of the net in any of his appearances. His influential performances however, helped drive his club team, Dorchester United to the final of the FLUFA competition where they lost on penalties to Vado FC. Although not as assured of a starting place like Last year, the captain of the team will certainly feature for them this year and drive them to victory

CLASS OF 2019
The team poses a huge physical challenge to other teams as they consists on strong muscular atheletes .Nevertheless ,potential title challengers but would be needing huge starlets to be in red hot form

1.ROBERT

Arguably the best footballer in the faculty ,truly a player that has it all starting from blistering pace,amazing awareness ,great control ,trickery as well has a huge physical presence .

Nominated as the shock revelation during last year’s games ,although did not have a great tournament with his team finishing fourth with just a single sin .I.e a 3-0 hammering of the class of 20 with Robert scoring one and assisting the remaining. 

He featured for his club side MAFIA FC during the FLUFA CLUB system tournament scoring 4 times ,but was also unable to see his team through to the final .

The main target man for the class of 19 ,through him all goals come forth .

He would want to make a definite statement to the teams I’m the faculty as well the university of Lagos .

2.ID LAWRENCE 

The leader of the titanic ship that is the class of 19 .The heartbeat of the midfield of the team 

The versatile central midfielder brings the creativity and experience to the team. As well as Robert failed pull his club side through during the club system tournament and would be looking to right the wrongs at this year’s games .

3.LENNY

A thorn in the sight of every attacker that comes in contact .The centre back has formed a formidable pairing alongside Peter Paris in the heart of the defence .

Going forward he poses a massive threat with his great presence in the box and would be looking to prevent as well as notch up goals for his class team .
CLASS OF 2018
Finalists in the finals of 2015 ,and also missing out of last year’s final due to points deduction after a clash of players between the said class and the class of 19 .

However , a strong team not lacking in depth . A team that truly should be feared .
1.KAY 

Captain of the squadron .Traditionally a midfielder ,Kay also amongst the special players who can play in various positions if required .This great attribute was portrayed as he was instrumental in his club side’s title charge in the Flufa club system competition.

A tenacious midfielder ,who often tends to show his aggressive side as well as his creativity coupled with great composure .

He would need to be in red hot form if his team is to succeed in their charge for the title .
2.VARLO

Another versatile player who could be deployed anywhere on the pitch if required .

With his amazing pace and dribbling skill giving him the ability to ghost past players showcased during his club side’s title win in the club system final.

It is fair to say that varlo and Kay are both wonderful individual players but, both perform better with on another complementing the other .And they would be key to their teams hope of lifting the grand prize .
CLASS OF 2017
A class truly boasting of raw talents ,finalists in the last two tournaments but still yet to win the golden prize.This being their final year,maybe third time is the charm .

With the most experienced squad going into this year’s games ,they would be hoping that certain players can fulfill all righteousness .
1.QUASIM 

Dep.team captain for the class .Would definitely bring his A-game ,with his creativity ,strength and balance to the heart of the team’s midfield .

Missed out of the club system tournament due to injury ,hopefully returns with a bang.

His ability to spot a pass ,would be of paramount interest by all and sundry .one thing is for sure other teams better be wary of the midfield maestro

2.SEYILAW 

Storming out of the blocks would see seyilaw ,the blistering winger with abundance of speed and trickery in his arsenal .A thorn in the sight of any defender going against him.

Another winner with team Vado at this year’s FLUFA CLUB system tournament notching up 2 goals .He would want to put his decisive penalty miss of last year that handed the title to the class of 16 .Would definitely want to make amends for the error and bring home the trophy .

3.TOBI (MACHO)

Macho as he is popularly known by all .The captain of the star studded team and an embodiment of strength (c’mon look at this man ) .His awareness sets him apart from the reminder of the squad .

Once again another player with the ability to play in any position if required .Creativity and industry is key to captain fantastic and he would want to lead this team to victory this time around with one last try .
With the host of players surrounding the class of 17′ one major problem for them is going to be taking their chances when created as we all witnessed what happened in last year’s finale .
 With the quality of players on show ,this promises to be a thrilling tournament .

THOUGHTS OF A SUICIDAL

BrokenSeparated into parts or pieces by being hit, damaged or altered

Something is wrong with me. 

I am a masterpiece, I am 

Beauty to behold but please be told,

Don’t open the ornamented doors, lift the embroidered carpet, remove the wig

Never look beneath for my broken is not to be seen. 

Yes, open your eyes and look

But don’t far. Don’t go deep. Don’t search wide.

Let me hide

Behind the façade

Why decide

Decide you need to know me better

Better watch out 

Think again 

Again I beseech 

Let me hide.

 No! you don’t have the right to right my wrongs. 

What is wrong with you? 

No! what is wrong with me? 

E-motionless
Unable to find my way 

I want to find joy 

I want my troubles to go away 

I want to know peace as I know my name 

I want true happiness

I want genuine love 

I want to feel!

I feel stuck

I want to move!

What is wrong with me?
Desperate

What am I not doing right?

Why this much pain?

I cry myself to sleep at night 

Hoping my morning would be bright

Open my curtains to the light 

But as hard as I fight with all might

I cannot quite feel alright… 

What is wrong with me?
Alone

Why am I this way? 

I want to scream 

I have nightmares 

Of when I was little

And my cupboard was my close companion

And the cobwebs weren’t nuisance

And I could block the whole world 

My daddy didn’t love me 

My mummy shouldn’t have had me

I’m certain God hates me

What is wrong with me?

THE WILD LOUNGE – MALEVOLENCE

Hi there, it’s Ignis. Without much ado,…..today I’m talking about abuse against women,…by men (kinda why I chose the word “MALEvolence“)……okay, that was a failed joke…let’s get down to business shall we please?

  I’ve been seeing, and hearing various stories of women being abused by their husbands and or partners….From Tonto Dikeh or Churchill whatever….to Mercy Aigbe….and that’s just the ones you hear about. Oh, yeah, there’s also Karabo Mokoena or something. But unfortunately, I’m not here to sympathise with anybody. Man beating woman is absolutely none of my business. I’m actually here to “analyse” the situation with as much bias as possible.

   Now what makes a man want to beat his wife? Or any woman for that matter? Some of you would say bad upbringing or mental disorder….well while these are plausible reasons, there is also the fact that the woman herself is a troublemaker: always nagging, not preparing food regularly,…letting her high salary get to her, or general lack of submission to her husband. I mean, ladies, you should know all these things get to men! You can’t just come up with some attitude at the expense of a man’s stomach….or start nagging him about bills when the game is on,…or start demanding an explanation for the lipstick on his collar or Trojan in his trouser pocket….such a man has the moral right to react in any manner he deems fit or necessary, even if it means going all Anthony Joshua on you. So, take note. It’s a universally known fact that the majority of abuses on women are caused by the women. Take a look at this….a woman knows a man is not entirely mentally or emotionally stable, but because the instability doesn’t extend to his pocket, she lies against love and enters a lifetime commitment with such a man, flooding everybody’s timeline with the relationship in pictures, and then when he short fuses and breaks flower vase on her head for refusal to engage in sexual relations with him,…she’ll start crying on Linda Ikeji’s blog. Ain’t nobody got time for that oh. Especially the celebrity victims, they think we’re interested in their cries for help. Nonsense! Like we don’t know it’s an arrangement between them and blog administrators to attract more traffic and fans to both parties. Really the only thing they get is more fame and fan following because they’ve low key done the needful by separating from the “monster” till a compromise or whatever can be reached. So they don’t need sympathy or “help”. They don’t press charges (at least not here) after all. It’s just all a “wash”. So, please, let’s stop wasting money on #NoToDomesticViolence campaigns, and let’s channel all that energy into more profitable ventures like Big Brother Naija for example.
   Now, the case of the “Southie” babe, man, that one really got me. The way people went around scolding (for the use of lenient words) the boyfriend of a lady (named Karabo) for burning his now ex girlfriend to ashes. Now, let me put the question to you, if you’re trying to tap on your father’s windscreen/windshield and you accidentally crack it, wouldn’t you rather just break the whole thing so, that way it’s easier for everyone involved? Yes? Exactly! So why then was everybody attacking that young man?? He accidentally killed his girlfriend, so he had to burn her up since she was already dead after all, and so everyone should have closure. I don’t understand how some social media users reason sha. Complicating such a logical something,…it just goes to show how y’all think.
  Anyways, I have to make a call to my own immediate ex girlfriend who unfortunately has been traumatized since a suicide bomber blew up the venue of her concert leaving so many people dead and injured. Now that she’s vulnerable, maybe I’ll be able to take advantage of things and you know,….

   By the way, who else has been a victim of trying to get food at any time past ten in the ninight

ABIOLA OJO GAMES: TEAM BY TEAM ANALYSIS

Year 5.

Last year’s Black Panthers are probably the favourites for this year’s tournament. If they can get themselves to train that is. They got so close last year, losing on penalties to the then year 5. Seyi Law must still have nightmares about the woodwork, even his mates now call him barrister Seyi as only him seems to be called to bar
Key Players: There is a lot of quality in the side but few players are some worth mentioning. You probably know them but let me just do my job.
Tobolos– Highest scorer for the class of 17. He has been in incredible form having just scored his first the year before the last. His most potent skill is notably his dedication and sheer will. He is not one to lose the ball as he will chase it to every corner of the pitch. Let’s hope his will will will his team to victory. 

Macho– Power, Leader, Composure, snake bite that’s all. 

Quasim– the multi talented sports maestro is the silent commander on the pitch. He isn’t overly glowing on the pitch but in the shadows he orchestrates the play like the master full puppeteer. 

Seyi law for honourable mention. With a playing style that reminds you a little bit of zaha and penalty woes like zaza let’s hope he can improve and remedy his errors 

This quartet can decide the games by themselves. Skill, workrate and end product are in abundance and defences (and attacks) should beware.
Special mention to Pelumi…and Dormo.
Year 4.

Last year’s Winter Soldiers, can they bring on the heat this time around? Their classmates will hope so. They’ll want to bring the trophy back from Law School (or Pryce’s studio). With their recent history, it’ll be fun to see how they temper their anger without curbing that amazing competitive spirit that has made them so interesting.
Key Player: Kay. This fantastic piece of footballing magic is probably the faculty’s best utility player (Robert might disagree though). Rumors had it that he would have played for Southampton if not that he thought they were too small a team for him. And he wants to focus on his Law career, of course.

Special mention goes to Russell also known as Q. And Ogalu Bolaji whose twinkle toes seems to be one of the many talents that make their class a unique blend.
YEAR 3.

WAR MACHINES!!
You can practically hear Robert shouting it. The class has a lot of very good players and will be looking to go all the way to the title. Hopefully, Cannon can finally become a title winning coach.
Key Player: Robert. The only forward that is box to box. Trust me, you haven’t seen anything like this (except you watched his last game of course). Special mention to the rest of the team, his supporting cast.
They also have a new intake in the defensive midfielder Olu who seems to just be the missing piece in the jigsaw puzzle of their team. ( Well to some the team plays like they are puzzled)
Year 2.

The Class of 2020, the former antmen, are no longer strangers to the Faculty’s sporting event, which means they have no more excuses for failure. Everyone expected a stronger performance from them last year but they failed to live up to expectations. This year however they are not the same team they were last year. They have trained and improved their team for the games but will it be enough to see them crowned victors this year? We can only watch.
Key Player: Femi. The rock. The only 4. This Kante/Gattuso/Casemiro hybrid has improved from the average DM he was last year to a beast who dazzles match after match. Known for not giving up, there’s no need to dribble him because he won’t leave you alone. The Class of 20 can’t wait to get their amazing DM to work.
Special mention to Efemena, Ayo, Afilaka, Semiloore, Khalil, OMIO. Lemme kuku mention the whole team.
Year 1.

The rookies. The debutants. The new boys on the block, sorry pitch. Anyways, the Law Class of 21 are not here to play with anyone. They’re here to win. A formidable team, their strength is in teamwork (what do you expect in a team sport?) rather than individual brilliance. They’ll surely be a pleasure to watch, not play against. Robert might have something to say about that though.
Key Player: John. In an era filled with brilliant attacking players, it’s refreshing to see a defensive player like John (and Kante) take after Femi from the Law Class of 20 and put on a wonderful show for the spectators. Tackles, interceptions and the occasional goal make John a delight to watch. Attackers, beware!
Special mention to Dami and Laolu.​

REMINDER: PROFESSOR ABIOLA OJO GAMES ANNUAL PRESS CONFERENCE

Come Friday the 9th of June 2017,the faculty of law would host it’s annual Professor Abiola Ojo sports festival press conference .The conference is going to be focusing on the tactical analysis of the various coaches on the various sports being contested .With the introduction of an Olympic themed concept .

This year’s press conference would also witness the unveiling of the unified games trophy which would be the symbol of dominance for the class with the highest number of medals ,accompanied with other trophies and medals.

This year’s competition would be tagged “CLASH OF THE TITANS “. Last year’s conference witnessed some brain racking decisions with eventual answers costing some teams ,and this year’s conference promises to be no different .

In past times,the games have been framed up on the the backbone of the hotly contested football competition ,and this year’s conference although with the introduction of the Olympic theme would probably be no different .With that been said ,the thought everyone should keep in mind is the fact that none of the contesting classes has been able to get their hands on the conveted prize at least except for the class of 21′ who for them would be the first taste of the games. The reminder would definitely go out with a point to prove as this year the stakes would be raised,no holds barred .

This year’s conference would for sure be the starting point and possibly spell the end for each and every competitor .
