We entered road from portharcourt to Benin early evening and everything went smoothly except blockage by soldier, soldier block us for road and they look inside the bus finish na only me then say mai come down.
I came down gently and they searched me throughly like a criminal.

Soldier1: nothing Sir, this guy is forming stubborn head.
Soldier3: mr man who are you and why blood ?

The officer came and took my bag, he search it and brought my wallet out, he saw my voters card and my school ID card, he looked at me and then look at the picture on the card. “let him go he is a student and Mr man your name is Ozila”.
Soldier1: but Sir.

See how everybody rush down like rush hour, i came down last and as i put leg for ground one of them hit me with his gun at my back telling me why i was last to come down, i fell on the ground with others. They entered inside and searched the bus, they took many phones and money also, then they separate the guys from the girls.
