Tale Of A Private Lesson Teacher:Episode 6

2 weeks before the robbery day, janet had been skipping
class seriously. She had been frustrating my effort and I
knew if she continues this way, no doubt that she will fail
the next JAMB. So I thought of a plan. Each time I am about
to tell her to attend classes, I will place my phone on a
recorder. So I have been capturing all her excuses and
conversations. Even the periods that she do threatened me,
I do record the threats. On the night of the robbery, I have
sneaked in as usual, I ate my dinner in sikirat’s room. We
have had our lessons. Just when we were bleeping in canine
style, we heard a knock on the gate. ” Open the gate or else
I will blow your head with gun”, a voice said from outside.
We were scared, my dick went flat instantly.
What do we do now?, sikirat asked. I don’t know too, I
replied. Immediately I remembered my neighbour friend at
home. His name is sunkanmi. Sunkanmi is a police officer,
he had joined the police force about 7 years ago, he was
feared by people in our neighbourhood. I placed a call to
ME: hello sunkanmi, abeg there is trouble. Where you dey?
SUNKANMI: I dey work on night duty
ME: please we need your help at the white house
SUNKANMI: where is white house? And what is happening
ME: armed robber are here pls do something to help us. **i
described the location**
Sunkanmi: but wetin u dey do for there this midnite?. You
go rob?
ME: I will explain later.
I hanged up. I and sikirat locked ourselves inside the
bathroom in her room. The thieves had gained entrance into
the compound, manipulated the entrance door and now in
the living room. They searched every room including
sikirat’s room. We didn’t make any sound, they went to the
kitchen, ate the beefs in the pot before returning back to the
living room. They were about going away with some money
and properties when we heard another voice outside “stop
there, if you move then you are dead”. I was happy that
sunkanmi had helped. All the robbers were arrested, I and
sikirat came out of the room, dressed up and went outside
to see what was going on. I couldn’t see sunkanmi among
the cops. The police officer asked ” who are the occupants
of this house?”, the gateman pointed to sikirat as the person
who lives in the main house as at this time. The police
officer turned to me. Oga, who are you?. I went dumb and
couldn’t speak. How do I explain my identity?. Its past 4am,
the robbers are now in the police van, the officer told I and
sikirat to follow them to station for statement writing.
****chaiiiii, my own don meet me today, wetin I go tell
madam?, how do I get there at midnite?, what for?. On
reaching the station, I called sunkanmi and he gave me
directions to where I will see him.
ME: sunky baba, you have to help me please.
SUnKANMI: what happened?, I was the one who arranged
the boys to rescue you after your call last night.
ME: I know, but I needed help.
SUnKANMI: what do you want me to do for you?,
ME: ********i explained all my movements, my secret
lessons to him****
SunKANMI: so what?
ME: madam will be here soon. What will be my explanation?
SUNKANMI: leave that to me, In your statement, just write it
that you were coming from a vigil when you noticed the
robbery movements, you hide somewhere, minutes later,
you called me. You saw the gate opened by the robbers, you
summon the courage to enter with the mindset to rescue the
occupants of the house, then the police arrived. That’s all.
ME: sunky baba. Thanks so much ooooo. ****chaiiii, see
police sense. I went back to meet sikirat, whispered into her
ears about what sunkanmi said. She was happy and
relieved because she too was scared of what will happen if
madam finds out. Sunkanmi also gave a script to sikirat to
write. It was that day I believed that “POLICE IS YOUR
FRIEND”. We both write our statements as directed by
sunkanmi. At about 6:10am, madam and janet arrived.
MADAM: police officer, what happened?, I heard my house
was robbed and my maid is here? ***i guess oga peter
didn’t mention my name to madam. That good of him****
IPO: yes madam. It was this young man that alerted the
police “pointing at me”****he reads out my statement to
madam. Sunkanmi also add sauce and juice to the story.
Madam was so exicited. See me at home tomorrow sunday
at 3pm “madam said to me”. Its 3pm on sunday, I dressed
well and went straight to the white house. I was welcomed
warmly. Madam, janet and gideon were sitting in the living
MADAM: onihaxy, I’m so happy about what you did, for your
courage, boldness and the police you invited to save our
properties from been stolen.
ME: ******my head come dey swell***. You are welcome
MADAM: now, you are now more than a lesson teacher. You
are now part of our family. Feel free to come here any time.
You may sleep over whenever you feel like.
ME: ****my head come swell again***** thank you ma.
