IS IT A SIN?   EPISODE 19

 

{CONTINUE FROM THE LAST EPISODE}

“Please I don’t know you.” I voiced out when we are trying to disengage.

“You don’t know me at Balogun Mixed School?” The receptionist asked in disbelief.

“She even know my secondary school.” I thought.

“I went to Balogun Mixed School, but I don’t think I know this beautiful face.” I replied jokingly.

“I’m Ololade Tessy.” She voiced out.  

“Wow! Unbelievable Tessy?” I expressed happily.

…::::::…:::::::….::::::…..

{COLLINS CONTINUED HIS STORY}

Ololade Tessy was my intimate friend, she was my best friend during our secondary school days, she was in Science class while I was in Art class, we lived in the same street, she was very friendly and lovely, she was a damsel; a gem I mean a rare gem of its kinds, she is beautiful but dark in complexion, we were very close back then but just a mere friend, I had crush on her but I never told her till they relocated to their own house.

.

{BACK TO THE STORY}

“Tessy, long time no see.” I expressed happily.

“Collins, I can’t believe you have grown so ample.” Tessy articulated happily.

.

It was a lengthy conversation between Tessy and I, she asked about my wife and children, I replied negatively {I’m single}, she also narrated how she was used and dumped by her fiancée who has proposed marriage to her. In short, we exchanged contacts, chat for some minutes and we later departed to our various destinations.

{BACK TO THE DOCTOR OFFICE}

On getting to Dr. Akin’s office, I was informed that he went for wards routine, so I had to sit down waiting for him. He came back shortly afterward; he summoned me into his office, I narrated how the incidents had happened, I narrated everything about the text message and even show him the text message for his confirmation.

“Am still confuse, you know everything about this message and how everything had happened in Chief’s house but you told me earlier that you are not living there, but how did you know everything this much? Or is there an imposter there?” Dr. Akin asked bemused.

“God does everything the way he planned. {I paused} I have an appointment with the Chief earlier this morning; we concluded to meet at a bar, I got to the bar before the Chief, it was over 45 minutes and the Chief was nowhere to be glimpsed, I was becoming impatient because I have some other important things to do, later on I called the Chief on phone but he ended the call; I kept my phone inside my pocket, because I concluded that he must be on his way that is why he is not answering my call because he has the habit of not picking calls while driving. Shortly, I heard the beep of my phone, I staggered a bit before I was able to elicit my phone from the pocket, on checking the phone screen it was the Chief calling, but on answered the call the story changed; I could heard the sound of some kind of groaning and panting; I guess that was when the chief started groaning in pains, I tried to greet him through phone but I didn’t receive any response, I wanted to drop the call but I thought it will be wise if I waited a little, shortly, I heard all what Mrs. Chioma narrated to the Chief, I also heard Nnena suggesting that the Chief should be conveyed to the family hospital when she came back from where she was sent and that is how I was able to get here.” I narrated to Dr. Akin; he felt pity for innocent Nnena.

“This is really amazing.” Dr. Akin exclaimed.

“What exactly can I do to help the situation?” Dr. Akin asked totally baffled.

“Mrs. Chioma must not know that he is still alive, if she does, she will double fold her plans and even counter-attack the chief and both of us will not be excluded; Dr. I am pleading for your assistance, Mrs. Chioma will ask for her husband’s corpse very soon; please am pleading with utmost humility that you should please render any help that is within your capability to save the Chief from his wicked wife.” I replied with parable beseeching.

 

“Hmmm… I will try my best, and I’m ready to render any assistance as long as I am concerned.” Dr. Akin replied.

“Thank you sir.” I expressed, we chatted for some minutes before I left the hospital for my resident.

.

In summary, Mrs. Chioma asked for her husband’s corpse after a month, Dr. Akin lied that they had used her husband’s face to operate another patient who had a damaged face, Mrs. Chioma buy his lie, she requested for money as the payment for using her husband’s face in substitute for the damaged one, Dr. Akin paid her instantly. She collected the money and she transported the damaged-face corpse and she went on burying another person corpse. It was a successful and well-planned mission, few months later; Dr. Mattew Okafor (Chief Nnamdi friend) married Mrs. Chioma “Happy marriage life.”

.

Chief Nnamdi on the other hand was unconscious for a year, he was placed on life machine, I was losing hope on his survival but Dr. Lewis never did; he do attended to the comatose patient more than any other patient in the hospital, he even invited some specialists that deals with patients in coma and really tried their best, he fund the Chief treatment throughout his stay in the hospital,  he was so caring to him, Tessy (the receptionist) and I became more closer, we became intimate friend just like that of our secondary school days, I proposed dating to her and she accepted, I always spent most of my time with the Chief. It was an unexpected day that the Chief regain consciousness, my joy knew no bound, Dr. Lewis couldn’t hide his joy; he was just smiling at the just-awaked chief but what surprised me most is that the Chief never lost his memory, he could vividly recalled all what had happened, tears were flowing freely from his eyes when he was imaging he could have die if not for God, Dr. Lewis and I that came to his rescue, he couldn’t hide his joy, he was just shedding the tears of joy and ecstasy.

“We had a tough time looking for Nnena but all thanks to God and Clara that brought her out of the prison unexpectedly.” Collins concluded.

.

{BACK TO THE MAIN SCENE}

“Hmmm, congratulation sir, God had started this story well and he wished to end it superbly.” Clara (the avenger) spoken.

 

 

“Dad, who is this man (pointing to the new gateman) and who is my mother? Where is she?” Obinna asked confusingly.

Sigh

“This man (pointing to the gateman sitting opposite to him) was a police officer, he was planted here by the Commissioner of Police and I, he is an inspector and he is inspector Jeff Olawale. It all happened that after I regained consciousness, I went to convene with the commissioner of police since he is my friend and I narrated everything that had happened to me, I pleaded to him to send his boys to my house to apprehend Chioma and Mattew; he told and cautioned me that Chief Mattew couldn’t be arrested just like that because there is no tangible and concrete evidences that he is guilty for the crimes he committed and beside he is into politics, he is now a Honorable Member of the House of Assembly. I appealed to the Commissioner of Police that I have the message sent by Mattew to Chioma; “Messages can be forged or faked, messages are not accredited as evidences in the court of law so I advice that we should think of other way of bringing out some evidences excluding this message.” The Commissioner of Police said not that audible.

The COP and I murmured and chatted for minutes, we were discussing of a way to fight for my justice, lately, we concluded about planting a police officer and the officer would serve as an insider and all thanks to God, you employed him without delays.” Chief Nnamdi concluded.

“How did you do it? I don’t even for once think he may be an imposter or insider.” Mrs. Chioma said soberly directing her statement to Jeff (the gateman).

“You employed me as the gate keeper of this house and I had been a gateman since then and that is how I started planning and executing my missions as directed by my boss, I was able to gathered some irrelevant evidences during the first three weeks of my appointment, I also succeeded in installing cameras wish I connected to my laptop, the cameras do send their recording directly to my laptop and I do cross-examine them. My boss keeps on disconcerting me for my non professionalism and that made me to risk the last trial and that gave me the concrete evidence that you are guilty for the charges, if you could vividly remember some days ago.” Jeff paused.

JEFF SIDE OF THE STORY

.

I (Jeff) was inside his cubicle, I was thinking about how he was going accompanied his assignment, I was concerned about his non professionalism because I had exceeded the days I am assigned to use in carrying out the truth and evidences and I haven’t be able to gather any genuine and concrete evidence for their crime.

Mrs. Chioma and Chief Mattew sat on a daybed inside the sitting room, they were laughing ceaselessly at the comedy drama played by Mr. Ibu, Akin and Pawpaw on their DStv decoder, they laughed relentlessly at scenes played by the two troublesome but funny small boys (Akin and Pawpaw), just then they heard a knock from the door.

“Come in the door is not locked.” Mrs. Chioma lashed angrily and her harsh vocals rent the air.

I (Jeff) came in gently and he lightly closed the main entrance door behind me.

“Good day madam, good day sir.” I greeted bowing down to show my respect for my bosses.

“Hehe, what can I do for you or you are hungry?” Mrs. Chioma asked falsely but teasingly.

“Not at all ma, I’m not hungry but I won’t mind if you can offered me little food.” I (Jeff) replied jokingly.

“Glutton!” Mrs. Chioma yelled.

“Ma, someone is looking for you outside.” I explained.

“Who is that? But I’m not expecting any visitor” Mrs. Chioma asked baffled.  

“Ma, he is a man, somehow old, he has a bushy teddy, he is somehow tall and he has round face with pinks lips.” I narrated

“What did he call himself?” Mrs. Chioma asked boastfully.

“He said he is one Chief Nnamdi Richard.” I voiced out brusquely.

“Eh!” Mrs. Chioma and Chief Mattew screamed in chorus.
