Read The Story
“Mum shouted at you and you said-Momsi, free me jor! Then your boyfriend scolded you and you began to cry…Please my sister, come forward! Come! Come! Let me pray for you. Oya, raise your hand up, raise it up very well. Then bend it and place it on your head. Say Father, strike me with thunder”
Ola,Ola, wake up, wake up. I opened my eyes this time slowly. It really took some minutes before my eyes could adjust to the lights in the room I was. When I opened my eyes, a little bit more, I could see Goddy. Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Is what I could hear. Goddy was screaming just like Daniel Bryan in WWE, heading towards the door.




Some minutes later, he came inside with the doctor and about 5 other people which I didn’t recognize very well. The Doctor examined me and said “He is in a stable condition now. They all chorused “Thank God” at the same time.



What happened to me? I asked no one in particular. You were shot but thanks to God you survived it because it penetrated just some meters away from your heart. The man is now in our custody and you guys are safe. Thank God you are alive Ola. The DPO said. Then one man came closer to me and said, “The executive Governor of Oyo state, Governor Ajumobi sends his greetings to you. Your bravery and unselfish attitude and your good spirit helped him to get back his younger brother’s child which was kidnapped about a month back. All the hospital bill is cleared and the Governor will like to see you and your brave friend here as soon as you are being discharged from the hospital. Your local government inspector has been called so you don’t have any worries reporting to your PPA or your local government secretariat. There is a car and a driver and some security guards downstairs which will bring you to his Excellency when you are okay. If you need anything, kindly inform the Doctor. If you don’t mind, you will have to excuse me, I need to inform the governor that he is awake, then he left. I just opened my mouth in amazement not knowing what to say. The Doctor noticed this and said, don’t be surprised. Nobody can try what you guys did and I must confess, you guys are wonderful. Look at this, he brought out two newspaper and showed me, “You guys just earned yourself a legendary status. Goddy got the paper from the Doctor and brought it closer to me and then I saw the headline “Two corper helps discover and rescue the ritualist’sdungeon along Lagos-ibadan, expressway “National Tribune. The Doctor also brought “The Punch” newspaper which says “Police rescues little kids from the ritualist den, thanks to 2 Oyo Corpers” I didn’t know when tears started streaming down my eyes.






I couldn’t believe my face could be on the dailies so quick. Naso OLAOLOWO take turn legend o. No be so?




“But how would you sell AsoEbi 100k to (a) Yoruba woman and give her small meat at your wedding? Don’t you want to have children?”

FAST-FORWARD

Everything happened like a flash. Passing out is here. I know you might be asking what happened after I left the hospital. Well, let me just brief you. 2 days after I woke up at the hospital, Goddy and I was being taken to the Governor’s house where I met Governor Ajumobi with his entire family. We were treated to a feast that particular evening. Later that night, we were given a room to stay. The next day, we wanted to go back to our house but the Governor rejected totally. He said we should forget about everything in that house unless if we have something important to take there. He gave us a car and two body guards to follow us home topack our bags.Getting to the front of our house, everybody came out to greet us. Goddy and I felt like a star. With the money given to us by the governor, we paid Mama K all our debts and even gave her extra N5000. Ify, the forming corper also was with us all through. We packed our bags, informed the Landlord we won’t be coming back again. We dashed out all the electronics in our room to Baba Ibeji. Just like ZlatanIbrahimovic said, when he left PSG,”I Came like a legend and left like a king”
Truly, we came to Ibadan like a legend, and we are about leaving like a king. POP date came and all passing out programs in Oyo state was changed because of us. I learnt the Governor had informed the president, the D.G and the state coordinator about our exploit and he has ordered that the POP will be done at the national stadium, converging all corpers in every local government because of us. The passing out day was the happiest day of my life. Goddyand I was both honoured with a scholarship to have our masters anywhere in the world and we were presented with a cheque of N2million naira each.


I couldn’t help but to cry. Truly they said, poverty was not an excuse. I struggled all my life to sponsor my education up to this level, now with the help of the Oyo state government, I have the chance of going further in any country of my choice. Is God not a great God?



I have obeyed the clarion call and I have done my part in serving humanity and in the process, saved lives of people. Thank You Jesus. I am OLA OLOWO, EL, ESCRITO…
