Our hostel is located at zanrab bustop which is just like 15mins journey to our school and N10 cab. There is a roundabout when you walk down the street beside zanrab filling station and my house is the first house on the first street by the left. It was a total relief moving all my belongings to the hostel, ismaeel came to pick me at the junction that very faithful evening as he led me home…
Me: Salam aleikum waramotullahi wa barakatuhu (Peace be unto this house)
Ismaeel: Wa aleikum salam my brother (Peace be unto you too)
Me: Alhamdullilahi (I thank God) for journey mercy
Ismaeel: Alhamdullilahi but this load is much fa Abdulrahman…how you take carry am now
Me: what will i do now when they packed everything for me
Ismaeel: Its good sha..i remember my first time of coming to the hostel too……it was like they should pack all Offa for me to bring to school
Me: That is serious……
“Started unpacking my stuff”
Me: Hope you have stove and cooking utensils at home
Ismaeel: Yes, i have some which i believe is okay…..ohhh, you even came with food stuff
Ismaeel: Ahhh…Garri re, Rice and spaghetti

Me: Abi now…at least we won’t be eating rice and all other things alone without their supplements.
Ismaeel: That is good.Welcome to the house and Unilorin once again my brother
Me: Thanks bro
Ismaeel house was not a well too furnished house, but its normal for a student. There was a deck in the room which we used to play music, carpet was what was la!d in the room and a 6 by 7 mattress was put on the floor, there was an hanger by the wall for cloth and a cupboard which food stuffs are kept.
Our house was a BQ behind the main building, the main building was a storey building and the up was occupied by the a family man whom i was told resides in Abuja but do come home one weekend in a month and spend his annual holiday with his family here in Ilorin. They had just two little kids together, A 3 year old boy and a year old baby.
The other 3 bedroom flat was occupied by 4 female student sharing the room one by one and the sitting room was also demarcated to make it four rooms. All the rooms in the house were ensuite while the person that occupied the sitting make use of the outside toilet while they all shared the kitchen together.
There was only two BQ in the house and it was done in a way whereby the toilet are separated from each other but we shared the same kitchen that was separated by a door from each room.
The two BQ was given to two guys so that the house wont be filled up with ladies alone for security purpose.
