EPISODE 11
How I wish I listened to my
brother advice then…. He tried all
his best to stop me from those
haram relationships.. But I
thought he hated me and also
thought his life style was dull..I
never knew I was about to
perish….uncle Yakub lamented
amidst of tears..
Kate was the one I cherrish most
among my girlfriends then…. Even
though I was planning on dating
lateefah her friend initially….but
Kate has all the qualities I always
wanted in women but not as
facially beautiful as lateefah….
My relationship with Kate grew
day by day to the extent that she
knew almost everything about
me…even though it’s just lust we
had for each other I still trusted
her so much….I discussed
everything with her….she is such
a brainy Togo girl……he sighed
heavily and clean his tears with
his hand…..
Kate aborted 3 pregnancies for
me…..she was a street girl that
wouldn’t tolerate any pregnancy
to spoil her fun life, and I was
also a street boy that wouldn’t
allowed any girl to tied me down
with pregnancy….
Kate and I had gone to bank so
many times that she had knew
every Friday I have to deposit our
sales for the week in the bank…..
To cut everything short…. Kate
got the fourth pregnancy and
refused to abort…I tried as much
as I could to convince her but
she stood still on keeping the
baby….then I Abandoned her as
she wasn’t my only girlfriend….
She also left me and then I
realized she was serious about
her decision….. Initially I thought
a street girl like her will not want
to keep a baby so soon…..
About a month later Kate was
using every trick she knew to
gain my attention…. I ignored her
so many times and told her that
if she wasn’t ready to follow my
decision I can’t have anything to
do with her…..but later I fell into
her trap….though she lied to me
that she has aborted the
pregnancy….it was a Friday and
we were going to bank as usual
before returning to club…. All I
could observed was that Kate
was extra ordinary caring that
day,I never knew she was up to
something…. He narrated and
bursted into cry…..
Suddenly a car crossed us and
we were forced out of our
car……Kate stood up while I was
asked to prostate….. Then Kate
began….. Idiot…….u think I will be
foolish to let u spoil my
womb……..
You think my life is just like that
of a fowl abi……….
You can enjoy it but u don’t want
to face the consequence….she
said and then bring out the bag
in the car and continued
again……. After your death or
probably u maybe lucky not to
die but am sure ur life will never
be the same after they finish
with u…..she said pointing to the
four men that stood by her…..
I and my unborn baby will take
care of this anyway…… Guys take
care of him…..fool….u don forget
say I be confirm Togo girl? She
asked and I was taken away in
my own car accompanied by
three of the men while the other
one drove their own car…………
It was hell on earth for me that
day……I was beaten as if I was a
thief……I was hitted with a very
big stone on my leg that I could
feel the disarrangement of my
bone…….for three days I was
being tortured without given
food nor water except one
whitish powdery substance that
I was forced to took………..
I was unconscious for days and
when I finally got myself it was
on the bed of a strange room
…….he explained amidst of
tears…….
I couldn’t talk nor can I carried
by heavily banded leg………I was
just looking around the
room………..two people came in
and it was a man and a lady……a
nurse and Mallam Audu…..
He had woken up…..the nurse
said …….then Mallam Audu came
to me and stared at me with
happiness shown on his
face……….
Months later I was already
getting better but walking with
the aid of a stick….. I don’t seems
to remember anything at
all,except the fact that I had been
traumatized by the torturing
experience…….Mallam Audu
explained to me how him and his
Father saw me in the bush while
they were taking their cattle for
gazing….. I asked him which state
I was then he said I was in Niger
state……I couldn’t explained how
I got there …..all I knew was that I
was being tortured by some
men……
Days turned into month,month
into years I was physically alright
and joined Mallam Audu and his
father in cattle rearing…….
We do come to Lagos state
during Eid period and I use to
get the feelings of familiarity
with the environment,but I can’t
specify a particular known place
there,until one day that I saw
Jibola My best friend at Sabo………..
…immediately I saw him I called
Alhaji Daud (Mallam Audu’s
father)that I knew him..then he
shouted my nick name…..Yak!!Y
ak.. …were u dey since …wetin u
dey do for here…he asked but I
couldn’t answered as I haven’t
realize who he was but I knew
he is someone that I had
known…..then Alhaji Daudu took
him inside,asked him a lot of
questions… And concluded on
going with him…we got to our
house but we were told the
owner were dead and before
their death they have sold the
house…. He even said Kate gave
birth but died immediately and
he doesn’t know the
whereabout of the baby ..Alhaji
told him about how he saw me
and pleaded to him if he knows
any of my Family member… But
he said no and the only person
left is Yusuf my brother and he
was already late just a year after
being tagged for using me for
ritual….. After hearing those bad
news I couldn’t stop crying even
though I couldn’t relate it then……
We finally returned to
Minna…….when I eventually
remembered everything I was in
great grief as I have cause Yusuf
death after so many warnings he
gave before leaving for Edo……I
couldn’t find u bcus I don’t know
anywhere in Edo and I don’t
even know how to face u after all
the pain I and my father had
caused to u…he said with his
expression full of regret ……..
Everyone sighed heavily and
mum spoke in the most
consoling manner…..
Baba okomi(my father in-law), u
haven’t done anything wrong
and I want u to know that
everything that happened has a
reason……..our separation also
has a reason……..and for my
Akanji,u aren’t the cause of his
death …it was when Allah want
him that he took him….and I
believed we would be united
again as husband and wife in
jannah bihidhinilahi…….. I want u
to stop yourself from
unnecessary grieves……asked for
forgiveness from Allah and
continue your life in a more
Godly way….this is Tekiyah my
daughter and Your brother’s
daughter,Tekiyah that’s your
uncle the only Father remaining
for you on earth…….mum
introduced cleaning her tears
……..
Uncle Yakub ran to where I
was,hugged me and started
praying for me…. After every
merrymaking and all the
comparison of resemblance he
went on sajdah Shukr(prostrati
on of gratitude)……….then he
turned to Mum….. Nusaybah……m
ay God bless u……may she be a
coolness to your eyes…..Alhamd
ulilahi…. I don’t know what I have
done to Allah for me to deserve
this kind of great moment… He
was saying it amidst of tears
when mum cut in….so where is
the Alhaji and where are your
wife and children……mum asked….
Alhaji died two years after I and
Mallam Audu relocated to this
place…..as for wife or children I
don’t have ….he said,then Mallam
Audu cut in…… Let’s give thanks
to Allah….. After all these
years……..Allahu Akbar(Allah is the
greatest)……..he exclaimed
Man is time u get urself a Zawjah
(wife) your family want
it…….Mallam Audu said teasingly…..
We later explained how we got
there to him…..and it was truly a
tragicomedy…….we went to his
house and we really felt at
home……mummy asked him if he
there is a way we could
communicate with people in
town……… He said he had a phone
but we have to get to the
mountain before we can get a
better network Service…after
every relaxation and fun, it was
obvious we wouldn’t leave for
town that day but mum was
bothered about calling her
friend….so we all left for the
mountain,she spoke with her
friend who informed her about
how everyone including Ajiah
and Yeseer had been worried…
She even said Yeseer had gone to
report in the police station,she
announced how relieved she
was,… Mum thanked her and they
ended the call…
I asked mum to give me the
phone but she refused…..
Baba Okomi let’s go….. She said…
But this girl want to call
someone, give her the phone
now…..uncle protested…
Don’t mind her,she doesn’t have
a head to think with…. Just let’s
go… Both of us understand…. She
said……
See woman, we aren’t going
anywhere until u tell me the
reason u are treating my
princess like this…. He said
jokingly….
Then mum explained everything
to him…..
Nusaybah…. If u could
remembered u were the one that
said everything happen for a
reason….. Moreover, the boy and
his mother aren’t bad….he even
went to police station… Abah……u
have to call them to save them
from unnecessary stress…. He
said stretching the phone to
her……me keh……do I looked like
someone that will know those
people phone number offhand…..
Give it to their wife o……..she said
angrily…..
I collected it and dialled Yeseer
number…. He picked it
immediately as if he had been
expecting a call…
Hello, this is Tekiyah… I said…
Tekiyah… He shouted…. I could
here Ajiah voice underneath…..
Where have u been, where are u?
hope u are OK?what of Ummu……
He asked without giving space
for answering……
I couldn’t answer all his
questions bcus mum had been
beating me with eyes…..I quickly
told him we will be in Ummu
Jamal’s place tomorrow and
ended the call…….
Are u satisfied……Mum asked in
an uncomfortable manner…..
Nusaybah pls take it easy with
her….. Uncle pleaded…..
Yakub is like u have forgotten
what I went through with your
stepmother…. I wouldn’t allow
her to embark on the same
journey… Never…..she said
angrily…..
Just be patient… Time heal all
wound.,…he added…..
Patience or no patience….. My
decision is final….. I have got no
other child….and I will not cry
over the only one I have…….she
said in a more aggressive way…..
I couldn’t say anything…. Before I
knew it….tears was already
rolling down my cheeks….uncle
consoled me and we went
home…….
To be continue In shah Allah…..
