Caller: this is Chief Emeka speaking from the UK
Me: Chief Emeka? Pls I don’t know you sir.
Chief Emeka: Dcns. Idowu’s husband
Me: daddy. Good afternoon sir. How is
Chief Emeka: everybody is fine. My wife has
spoken about you. How you have been there for
her when she was in Nigeria. And I also want to
appreciate you for what you did in securing
that contract for her
Me: Daddy, that’s the least on what I could do
Chief Emeka: I will be in Nigeria in 2 days time
and I would like to see you
Me: it is ok sir.
Chief Emeka: ok. I will call you as soon as I
arrive. Take care of yourself (ends call)
After the call I was perplexed. A million
thoughts were running through my mind.
“What does he wants from me?”
“Hope Dcns Idowu hasn’t told him about me?”
And so on. As I was pondering another call
came into my phone
MT: Daadi, na wa for you. It’s been long you
haven’t been around and I really missed you (“I
missed you” came from the background)
Me: MT, I missed you too. But who is talking in
MT: your wife Halima
Me: Chei!!!! Walahi I don miss am! Make I speak
MT: I will not give her the phone
Me: ok.. You know na…….but…..
MT: (codedly)I don hear. Halima, come and talk
with your husband
Halima: Baby, this is not fair o
Me: baby, it is not that. My sim was
permanently with my friend when I was hiding.
And every call has to be screened before I was
allowed to talk with d person
Halima: baby, I can’t wait for you
(In the background: Daadi, you will pay for the
Me: tell ur sister, I’ll recharge her line. I’ll be
home as soon as possible
When I got home in the evening (the CSO of
the Church escorted me home), I observed that
the house was quiet. As soon as I entered my
flat, a call came into my phone
Me: who is that calling me?
Iyoaye: it is me Iyoaye
Me: (hissed) what can I do for you?
Iyoaye: My dear, I am sorry for what I have
done to you. I was misled by someone.
Me: Misled? O so wipe o ni pami (you almost got
me killed) and you now think I will forget the
happening in a hurry?
Iyoaye: I want to come and see you tonight.
Me: emi ke You can’t see me now or never.
Infact, I don’t want to see you near my vicinity.
As soon as the call was ended, I heard a knock
on the door. I went to the kitchen and brought
the local wooden spoon (omorogun) and went
to the door
Me: who is at the door?
Halima: it is me Halima and someone
Me: who is that someone?
Halima: don’t worry when you open the door.
As soon as I opened the door, she jumped on
me and started crying
Halima: baby, I have really missed you
Me: hmmm. I missed you too.
Releasing her I discovered that she was alone.
As soon as I ushered her in, she came to me
and we started kissing. After kissing for a while,
I released her and I locked the door.
Halima: thank God you are back safe.
Me: we thank God for that. How are you?
Halima: I am fine but I really missed you.
Me: that’s good to hear. But how is your
Halima: (hisses) you are offending me Daadi. I
am with my husband and you are asking me
how my husband is. E ma je ki n binu si yin
(don’t make me angry towards you).
Me: remember that I’m married; and you just
did your introduction not quite long.
Halima: introduction I have broken up with
Me: what happened?
Halima: three days to the introduction, his mum
called me. And after I got to their place I met a
girl that was heavy with her people. She
narrated to us that both of them had been
Me: Jesus of Okrika!!!
Halima: (contd.) And her people are threatening
fire and thunder if he doesn’t marry the girl. I
called Mama Tee and my Parents to break the
news to them.
Me: (consoles her) dear I’m sorry for that. But I
have a confession to make.
Me: if I tell you I will break your heart further.
Halima: hmmm. I know. My sister had opened
up to me about your s*x – escapades. At first I
was really mad at both of you most especially
you. But, I have to forgive you because, I find
warmth and peace whenever I am with you.
Even I am ready to stay beside you no matter
what anybody says.
As soon as she stopped talking, she stood up
and went to the kitchen to bring a dish and
food flask. She prepared the table and came to
drag me there. When I got there, I saw that she
had prepared edi-ka-ikong (hope I got the
spelling) soup with pounded yam. She served
the food and was waiting for me to start eating.
Halima: you better eat because all what you
have stored in your body all these while, I will
receive it tonight.
I was hesitating whether to eat or not, when
she took some morsels out of what she served
me and ate it. It was then I was convinced that
the food is clean. We ate in silence and after we
finished, she took the plates to the kitchen to
clean them up. I dialled Mama Tee’s number.
After the 3rd ring, she picked the call
Me: MT, how are you?
MT: I am doing good. And how is our ‘wife’
Me: Our wife is fine. But you surprised me
Me: you told your sister about our “thing”
MT: I had to confess to her because she is my
blood and as it is always said “okun omo iya yii
gidi gan” (the bond between brothers and
sisters is strong) and she loves you (Halima
came beside me)
Me: she is a rare jewel. How I’d wish to have
met her before I met Iyoaye.
MT: na so. But how is Iyoaye?
Me: (hisses) she called that she wanted to see
me. I have decided that I will not have anything
to do with her again.
MT: eyin le mo (na you sabi). Daadi, I am on
special duty and I won’t be around for the next
one week. Please help me to take care of
Me: trust your brother. Or do you want to speak
MT: hmmm Daadi. Ok let me speak with her.
I gave the phone to Halima and she spoke with
her sister for some minutes. After she ended
the call, a call came in almost immediately
Me: who am I speaking with?
Ritababe: it is me Rita. Where are you
Me: I am at home.
Ritababe: I have been expecting you now
Me: Ritababe, I am sorry I will not be able to
Ritababe: Accountant, why now
Me: I’m sorry; some things are designed not to
work in the ways we planned. We will see in the
Ritababe: accountant you know it is not fair (I
ended the call)
After ending all the calls, I programmed my
phone to silent mode and I turned to look at
Halima. I saw the fire of passion raging in her
eyes. We started kissing each other, and I
started squeezing her Weapon of Mass
