"I traveled few weeks ago to visit my parents. I noticed the well in our compound was open and I asked why? I was told that the Hausa boys who pick metals, removed the metal cover and went away. They operate mid-morning when people have gone to work. I paid a bricklayer to construct the cover with cement and rod... Let me see how they'll carry this one."
