STOP!!! POLICE!!!


Exactly what I have been dreading; Nigerian Police stopping me and asking for this & that. I’ve been driving without my licence (e dey warri) so I felt like a criminal already. I comot go somewhere (which is gist for another post) so on my way back naim I see the police dem,  I first form say I nor see the two police as they were waving their guns. “Abeg they should not stop me oh” …I was already praying. 


I had a pretty hectic morning and I never chop at all, it was about 3:00pm, I don’t need more frustration. I don't want provocation ;most of my wrong decisions have been made when I was hungry and I need to use this medium to apologise for whatever I've said to people in real life when I was hungry. I didn't mean it. LOL.

Anyhow sha, I stopped,  my heart dey tensh but I flashed my most disarming smile, the smile I use to beg for things, the smile I use to pose for photos, I’m sure you guys know the SisiYemmie smile already.

I was expecting the man to just start the process, asking for particulars, kini kan, kini kan…but instead of a frown, he smiled.  HE SMILED! I nor dey trust police smile so I increased the wattage of my smile. I kon wind the glass down…


“Good afternoon sir, I greeted, with a huge emphasis on “SIR”

“My dear, how are you”, he returned.

I need to insert my bb confused face, please you guys, I have never heard this kind of police-civilian kind of conversation, ever, ever, ever. Maybe the man fit don drink sef. How am I ke?

“I-I-I- I’m fine”, I stammered...
He shocked me more by saying; “I stopped you because you look too fine, you are a beautiful lady, so I say I should tell you, you can go”

I go'd.

SAY WHAT? COMPLIMENT FROM POLICEMAN?!

If una see as my head wan burst ehn…all the time I spent in front of the mirror this morning blending my pancake was so worth it at that moment. I always knew that lipstick I wore was a winner, combined with that my sassy wig. Irresistable! (You don’t know the lipstick? I’ll update my blog…I’ve been naughty. So watch this space sha)

Nothing absolutely beats this kain honest compliment from a stranger, a compliment that does not lead to something else. He didn’t ask for number, nothing. That’s all he stopped me to tell me, and I felt truly like the ONLY SISI IN TOWN! SISI EKO, SISI WENGELE, SISI YEMMIE! Abeg make I stop! LOL.

  6. Nice post. I have been stopped once before, and the policeman began to praise my looks from my great grand mother to my dynasty yet unborn. Like you, i was a little wierded out until he asked that I give him something for weekend (eh hennnnn, that one I am familiar with). I asked him if it was because of weekend money that he is winding me lyrics. He said No, but you know fine girls are very generous. I didn't have much on me, but there are some things you can't just drive away from.So i had to give him weekend money lol.

  13. The only compliment I have ever been given by a policeman was when he said he wanted to spend the night with me. I stammered, muttered an apology and drove off.

  15. Please don't drive without a license. You wouldn't do that abroad so why do it in Nigeria?
    If he had arrested you you would be upset and abused him

  20. Sisi Yemmi, Just so you know, you are allowed to drive with your U.K licence in Lagos within 6 months from your arrival. I am a recent U.K returnee myself and since obtaining a licence in Lagos is a bit like squeezing water from the proverbial stone, I have been driving with my U.K licence and shall do so for the forseeable future until the licencing authorities sort themselves. Moreso, as no Policeman is smart enough to ask for proof that I have been back less than 6 months. Just ensure all the papers for your vehicle are "complete"

  21. 3 months ago,i left the office so late, i was so tired and felt nasty. i got to a very busy road close to my area and unfortunately, i stood on the same spot for close to 20 minutes all because the busy drivers couldn't wait for a pretty tired babe to cross over. all of a sudden, a police man disappeared from no where, i thought he came to harass me o but instead he smiled at me and asked if i wanted to cross the road, i said yes and then he grabbed my hand, stopped the trailers,cars and danfo buses and WE CROSSED! he said bye bye and went another way. i was sooooo surprised,shocked,flabbergasted,stunned, amused....which other word can i use self

  22. ha ha, one time an army man at a check point told me he would have collected my pin if he wasn't busy... i was thankful for the long queue behind me.

    such random compliments sometimes tend to mean a lot more... the olopa must have had lunch to see well, cos you is fine!!! :)
