  • Sorry for the late update today. I was typing so quickly so there might be typographical errors.
    Tell a friend, to tell another friend, to start reading Lotanna. Thank you.

  • “Lotanna!” I heard a voice call out. It was a familiar voice but I was not seeing the face until someone tapped me from behind.
    “Lotanna, hope the trial went well?” senior Ray asked smiling.
    It was just a reflex action and I did not know when I hugged him and said “Thank you so much, God bless you”.
    The next thing I heard was “God will always s…[Read more]

  • “Yes sir’ she relied trying to race to the podium where they were seated, “please take this sheet of paper and pass to all the members of the panel. They know what to do. When they are done, give it to the principal so he can give the last say on this issue; school will soon be over”.
    I had not even realized that the time was almost two thirty.…[Read more]

  • Reasons number two. Why has Mary Sanusi refused to say anything about this whole issue since it began on Tuesday night? Why was she not shocked when she was told that her locker was burgled because the normal reaction of every student whose property has been tampered with is a shout, an exclamation, and for girls like Mary, tears. Why did she look…[Read more]

  • I was so surprised when Mr. John and Mr. Nabase came to my class to call me out and they began to question me strangely. I was surprised at how they knew all that transpired in the hostel but what gave me greater shock was how they came to the conclusion of the fact that I stole from Mary.
    Mr. John later called me yesterday night for “A Q…[Read more]

  • ‘Lotanna” he said clearing his throat, a CCTV footage of you burgling a locker in dormitory three of the pink house female hostel was found by the security operatives and taken to Mr. Nabase. I want to ask you a question. So answer me truthfully and to the best of your knowledge. What exactly happened that day?
    My heart sunk. All eyes were on me…[Read more]

  • “True” I replied.
    “On that same day” she continued, “you took away a packet of Kellogg’s Cornflakes and a sachet of 400grams Peak milk, true or false?”
    “True” I replied.
    “That will be all Sir” she said to the principal and returned to her seat.
    Trust me, I have watched numerous law and crime movies but I never saw myself acting in one of them…[Read more]

  • The room had a high platform with 3 seats. The Principal sat in the middle, the vice Principal Academics on the right, and the vice Principal Administrative on the left.
    There was a small section of seven seats where other members of the panel sat which was directly facing the small box I was made to stand in. The rest of room was blank, except…[Read more]

  • In life, I have always tried to believe the part of the bible that says “all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose” so I handle everything that comes my way with this mindset.
    However, today’s case was different. Was this not the same because I could not understand Senior Raymond (Ray)…[Read more]

  • There might be a few mistakes,but I am an amateur writer so corrections are welcome.Thank you all.

  • God had answered my prayers and my ears were no longer suffering so I thanked her and went into the office.
    Members of the panel were with the Principal, but depending on your offence, the members of the panel will differ. As a good student who never broke the rules, I never had an experience with the panel unlike Habiba who began to call the…[Read more]

  • “Help of the helpless Lord abide with me” senior Jemima sang in her sonorous voice. As the school Nightingale, she led all song, all hymns, all anthems; the young lady sang them all. For her to have won the FCK annual music competition that had judges from Project Fame, Senegal Music Academy and Soweto Gospel choir, she had to be good. And so…[Read more]

  • “Thank you senior Ray, I will go to see him now” I lied. Then it occurred to me that he told me a different name entirely yesterday, so I decide to ask just as senior Jay had left the class.
    “Senior Ray, you told me that your name is Dalu yesterday when I asked. Why didn’t you tell me a name I could recognize? I was only able to recognize you thi…[Read more]

  • Senior Ray was beyond fine, intelligent and sporty; he was a child of God. He was the assistant chapel prefect if that told you anything. God is however, not a God of partiality so he doesn’t give one person everything. That was so clear when he gave Raymond a very very horrible singing voice. Just to highlight one of the many talents he lacked. H…[Read more]

  • Of course I had my life mapped out before I left for devotion, so after the last amen, I dashed into my room to execute my plans. I prepared and left the hostel by 6:47am according to my G-Shock wristwatch, and I went straight to my class to enjoy some solitude before Dele the class gateman would arrive.
    The journey from my hostel to class was…[Read more]

  • #EpisodeThree…
    “Mummy matron” I shouted, racing towards her room which was just beside The Js1 and Js2 dormitory.
    “Ma, please I want to report myself to you. Ma, senior Frances slapped me so I retaliated and we started fighting. I’m sorry ma” I said panting heavily from all that fighting and running.
    “Well, you know I like Godly students who…[Read more]

  • Remembering quickly that mama matron only listens to who reports first, I ran off quickly despite the tight grip senior Frances had on my leg, to go and report myself to matron. Thank God the fight wasn’t up to five minutes so it was early to lay complaint.
    I was defeated in the fight sadly, but the fight was not over yet; till I said so.
    #…[Read more]

  • “Babe please I’ve already stained my bed, I’m going to bath. I will tell you everything when I get back”. I was already half way out of the corridor heading for the bathroom wing of the bungalow when I heard senior Frances calling me.
    “What did Mr. John tell you Lotanna?” she said. I just kept walking like I did not hear a thing. “Lotanna Ch…[Read more]

  • “What am I going to do?!!!” I thought to myself as Mr. John went on and on about the allegations.
    “Sir please I am not the one, it is not me sir please”
    “Lotanna Chibuike, when you meet with the schools disciplinary panel tomorrow, you can explain better. Please leave my office”.
    With hot tears pouring out of my large eyes balls, I st…[Read more]
