Opinion: My neighbours are serial murderers

by Obinna Jasper Ezeokeke

My neighbors; they are MAFIA! They even ‘waste’ their human enemies, I hear all about it from next door.

My neighbours; serial murderers they are. Skillfully trained in the art of assassination and the rhythmical disintegration of human flesh with ‘fire’. . .

It is no secret anymore, because around 2am till 5am every day I hear the screams that keep me up all night. Uh, did I mention that the victims getting murdered at the whim of my neighbors were ‘demons’? Yeah that’s kinda odd right? I mean, I hear all the yelled threats of arson from next door and never have I heard the victim screeching in pain or shouting mindlessly.

My neighbors; they are MAFIA! They even ‘waste’ their human enemies, I hear all about it from next door.

Oh my God! Lord please keep me SAFE from harm IN JESUS NAME!”

It’s kinda weird though that they always seem to say ‘In Jesus name’ too after all the death threats to humans and promises of arson…

Huh? Perhaps they got it all wrong. Oh! There it goes again; they’re burning a man now, telling him to ‘catch fire’. I better keep my head down before I become a threat and get myself killed.  I am absolutely terrified, even their 7 year old male toddler is in on it *absolute shock*. He’s yelling ‘die die’, like the soundtrack from a creepy horror movie – I always suspected there was something up with that kid, too much TOOTH IN HIS GRIN.

This is too much for me to handle. I think I should call the cops on them. Oh, wait! This is Nigeria, no one really has a functional police emergency number on speed dial anyway *rolls eyeballs*.

It’s almost 5am and their howling tempo is beginning to drop… *sigh*

It’s a sad story, one more dead man sliding right under my nose.  You know what hurts the most? To think they call themselves RELIGIOUS.

The father of my neighbors’ family just spoke; did that man just say “THANK YOU GOD” for MURDER???

That’s it, I’m off to sleep!
