Last seen at the Lekki Toll Gate

This poem takes a targeted aim at an Individual at the protest ground, imagining the specificities of his personal life.

At the Lekki toll gate,

He stood with his back to the camera

His unfinished custard grew cold beside some unwrapped akara

His phone refused to yield calls

Nothing to soothe mama as worry spike her galls

Words are that he was last seen at the Lekki toll gate

Waving flags and doing low waves

They said he was on a cause for Nigeria

His country had other ideas

He was last seen at the Lekki protest

He wore plain T-shirt and unmarked jeans

Some uniform for hard fighting?

Youths with voice carry missiles in their vocal cords

Social soldiers sit on top of change wars

Occupy Lekki and Arab Springs start with words

…and every revolution claim casualties

In plain T-shirt and unmarked jeans

He was last seen at the protest

With no name, and fame

He only carried his hope

In search of betterment, he lost his way

He was last seen at the Lekki toll gate
