Rush Hour at Midnight Slaughter

As the sun goes down on Okujagu, a second rush hour starts for this community’s newly nocturnal economy. Cows and goats are led to midnight slaughter and buyers come from across the city. Through this pandemic, more and more commercial activity is seeking the cover of night.

As one of Chicoco’s lead journalists and drama producers, local stories are important to me. They take me on journeys, often accompanied by my 5-year-old co-presenter, Biomele.
