English to Yoruba: My Ten Naira
Source text - English Several months ago, I went to visit a friend and was on my way home in the popular commuter bus called "molue" when a man sweating profusely as if he has just lost his job or as if his wife has just given birth to a set of quadruplets came on board. He said, "I am very sorry to disturb your peace this afternoon. I stand here today to seek your assistance in transporting myself back to my home. I have come from a distant place to Lagos to buy some goods unfortunately my wallet has been stolen and I’m here stranded. Please, do help me." he pleaded. "I feel ashamed having to do this should in case anybody from my part of the world should see me but I have got no choice."
His words generate reactions as some of the passengers in pity contributed money for him. Some were even saying, ‘they have revealed Lagos to him. While some were saying, ah, he is someone from our town; it is the tribal marks of our town that are on his cheeks! I also donated ten naira. He later alighted with the contribution showering us all with prayers.
After some months, I was coming from the cybercafé and right there in front was the same man before some people making the same passionate plea that they have stolen his wallet and bla, bla, bla.
It then dawn on me, I have been duped of my precious ten naira.

"Our ancestors used natural medicine to treat many ailments successfully in the past. But the introduction of chemotherapy (drug) by our Colonial masters made natural medicine unattractive to this generation.
