They heard a loud knock on their front door, accompanied by a harsh command, “Open up or you’re all dead!”
The couple now understood they were in dead trouble.
The husband reached for his matchet that was under the bed.
The wife whispered to her husband to remain calm and follow her as she opened the bedroom door.
The banging became louder, but she softly and calmly asked, “Please are you from NCDC? My husband is getting worse. I’m coming to get the door.”
The man, now sensing what the wife was doing, began to cough uncontrollably.
One of the robbers asked the others, “Wetin be NCDC?”
One replied, “Can’t you hear that man coughing? These people na Coronavirus people, my brother!”
The robbers took to their heels as the woman opened the door.
They struggled with one another to scale the fence in the stampede that followed!
Abeg, let’s laugh small!
