Nnamdi was well-known by many people. He was a huge guy of about six feet five inches. He had one of those faces you never forget. One of his more prominent physical features was an exceptionally large nose.
The reason why Nnamdi was popular is not because of his physical appearance. It also wasn’t because he was smart or jovial. As a matter of fact, he was a halfwit and he had no sense of humour whatsoever.
He was popular because he was one of those rare humans that were born lucky. Well, apart from his looks and brains obviously.
Although Nnamdi didn’t quite have the brains to play poker as well as his friends, he wins 8 out of 10 games because he almost always has the best hand. And if Nnamdi should decide to place a bet on a football team, he wins 9 out of 10 of those bets.
Nnamdi has also been involved in a lot of accidents but he almost always escapes without even sustaining any bruises. He was once scheduled to travel for an excursion with his course mates while he was still in college but he had to pull out at the last minute after he contacted a flu.
The bus got involved in an accident after a break failure and almost all his course mates that were in the bus died. The others sustained serious injuries.
When one of Nnamdi’s friends heard that Nnamdi died after he was hit on the head by a stray bullet during a shoot-out between the police and a group of armed robbers, the first thing he said was;
“I guess his luck’s finally run out”
