Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 14

Night fell gradually.

“make we go Paapa place na” Man said. “who

be

Paapa?” I inquired. “no worry if we reach

there u go

know” Man answered the same way he

answered

when he was asked who Obele was.

The guy called Man, so much loved suspence, it

pisses me off. “i no want person wey go cut my

p’rick oh, like Obele do oh” i tot. “i go follow

una go

Paapa place oh, make una wait for me oh”

Snoop

shouted from outside.

As we were about leaving the house, someone

came in. MOG was his name.

“MOG!! MOG!!” we hailed. “God bless you guys”

he

responded (his usual response when two or

more

persons greets or cheers him).

MOG!! Aaaaah MOG!!. MOG was a short form for

Man of God. He was a junior Pastor in our

church.

What i loved about him was that he was very

prayerful. What i disliked about him was that

he

loved begging for money from his brethren and

even outsiders. If he wanted money from

anyone,

he would simply preach to the person, and at

the

end of his preaching he would say; “help the

ministry with anything, nothing is too big”. He

hardly says “nothing is too small”, because he

was

wise enough to know that if he said that, he

would

be given peanuts. If you say he converts the

Bible

to a gun and uses it to rob people all in the

name

of “the gospel”, you wouldn’t be far from the

truth.

He hardly lacked money because “na where man

dey work, na there him dey chop”.

“where are u guys going to?” MOG asked. “we

dey

go buy groundnut and bread wey we go chop”

Man

told a big fat lie. “u guys should buy for me

also, i

am very hungry, and am passing the night

here”

MOG informed.

Or was groundnut and bread the code name of

what we were going to do at Paapa’s place?

Only

time would tell.

“wetin we dey go do for Paapa place?” i asked

as

we were walking down the street. “we dey go

take

igboh for there, shebi una dey smoke igboh?”

Snoop

inquired. “i no dey smoke igboh oh, i no need

my

brain to die oh, i need am well well oh”

Brainbox

said. “so we wey dey smoke, our brain go die?”

Man queried. “na una sabi na, me i don dey go

back house, i think say na food una wan go chop

for Paapa place nahim make me follow una”

Brainbox said and left. Sure, as an award

winning

con artist he was, he really needed his brain to

always be at alert.
