Who's to be blamed for the security breach--- The Vicinity or The Inhabitants...

Just like the preachers will always say that, "the world itself is a very beautiful place but then the occupants of the world are the ones making it look the way it is," In that same vein, every vicinity on its own is a very peaceful one but then the few persons who I refer to as the devil's vessels; the hoodlums who reside in some of these vicinities have sworn to make the rest of the inhabitants uncomfortable by threatening the safety of these vicinities.

I can never forget the mental picture I have about a page in my children Bible where I got to see the lion and other carnivorous/ dangerous animals we know living in harmony with the human race.... I didn't see snake though 😅.

My vicinity here in school is really a peaceful one to the extent that you can't differentiate between day and night here and this is because of the scattered streetlights at every nook and cranny of the vicinity.

This was a proactive security measure that was taken by the hospital management in whose vicinity I reside so they don't even give these hoodlums the opportunity to think about doing anything funny within the premises.

In addition to the scattered streetlights, security men are always patrolling the vicinity too and making sure that everything is in order at night.

These made it possible for us to move around freely at night without any worries since it's relatively peaceful.

These are some of the shots I took at night

As for my vicinity at home, Onitsha in Anambra state, Nigeria, it's a complete 'U-Turn' with that of my school.

There, once it's 7pm and you're still outside, you're literally exposed to various crimes (loosing your phone, money and other valuables on you, receiving beatings if they're but satisfied with what you have on you and harassment just to mention but a few) worst still if you're a lady as you may be raped.

This is because of the high rate of cultists that stay in my vicinity and they always want to express their power on the civilians, so it's either you join them and get covered or you don't but get to your home earlier before nightfall.

Many persons have lost their lives and that of their loved ones to the actions of these riffraffs especially the periods when they have clash of interests and the two opposing cult groups fight for what I don't know killing the opposite members and also few innocent casualties who happened to be there.
It's always a painful moment for us when they do because rarely does it end without shedding of blood.

Just like Melisandre will say in Game of Thrones Series that ,

"The Night Is Dark And Full Of Terrors",

It's really necessary that we get to finish all our activities in the day and make sure we're at home once it's dark because in darkness, evil prevails.


Thanks for reading and have a nice day ahead 👍

I guess your school area is peaceful because it is a student environment and as students, the vibes are there to keep the vicinity in good condition rather than in your home in onitsha where you aren't allowed to walk at night anyhow.

It would be best to get in early enough, the shadows is a harbour to their evil minds and acts

The school environment is safer and crime free which is just good. You won't have to worry about being robbed of your valuables either in the daytime or at night.

Onitsha is something else. All these cultists that are always fighting and killing themselves like chickens , I wonder when they are going to stop and be useful to themselves, their family and the society at large.

You're looking fresh ooo 🤣.

I had to look at the picture I posted again to be sure 🤣
Aunt.. me that school wants to kill is fresh, where did you see me abeg because the suffering is even reflecting in that my pictures 😂

Those cultists are the reason I don't frequent Onitsha because I don't have their strength at all but school environment is pretty safe indeed

Night time become the more risky time for everyone. Most of the crime happened in the time of night and for the reason everyone prefer to come how early as possible. This is the thing which we can't change except our government want to change it..

Yes, it's just one of those areas our government needs to step in because we can't do much on our own
