When we were at the University, one extremely spiritual student went missing.
Apparently, she left school for their home in Kaduna on a Friday with the intention of returning on a Sunday to enable her attend lectures the next day.
Because Zaria was not that far from Kaduna, sometimes when those of us who lived “near away” went home to replenish the food stores for the month, we could decide to leave KD as early as 5 am on a Monday morning instead of returning on Sunday.
You’d be back in school by 6.30 am and could meet up with the earliest lectures. So, when our friend’s roomies didn’t see her on Sunday, they simply assumed she would be back the next morning.
By Monday mid-day, they felt she would be back later, maybe something happened to keep her back at home but by Tuesday morning, everyone was slightly worried. She had missed a full day of lectures and was heading into the second day. This was not the era of GSM phones so there was no way anyone could reach her or vice versa.
This was also the period when, perhaps trying to scare girls to walk the straight and narrow path, lots of stories were flying around about how a girl who disappeared from campus was found dead with her vital organs harvested; or another went off with so and so Aristo and a snake was used to sex her in order to replenish the Aristo’s spiritual bank vault; or how the other girl followed some boys off for a party and they had an accident and she died … etc.
But none of these scenarios could happen to “sista” now, she was a church girl, squeaky clean.
Anyway, her roommates pooled together funds and went off to the telephone call centre which was the only means of communicating with the outside world then, and called Sista’s home and for the first time, her bewildered parents heard that she was meant to have come for the weekend.
Not a small something.
Immediately, a massive search for the lost girl began. By wednesday morning, posters bearing her pictures were put up all over campus, people made announcements in various halls, her parents relocated to the school guest house and the search was on!
Thursday evening, “Sista” walked into the campus only to discover that in her absence, Cymene the goddess of renown, fame and infamy had visited and bestowed her kind wishes on her.
The campus erupted in celebrations, it was wild and no holds barred. Especially when Sista told stories of how she had flagged a cab which stopped to pick her up and the car had veered into the bush and stopped at a shrine. All the occupants in the car were meant to be slaughtered, but the shrine rejected her because she was still a virgin.
Hmmm, saved by her virginity, the bad guys had no other option than to release her from captivity after three days and she spent a lot of time wandering the bush. Ravens brought meat to her with their beaks while she camped out by a brook of fresh running water whose trail she followed daily till she got to town – oh wait, that was prophet Elijah in the bible.
