The DPO rushed out after accusing me of whatever was going on with Fire and Desire. The Hausa man returned back to me and spoke to me in Hausa..

“ My brother, If this is the hand of your Jesus or God, it is not a good one ooo, beg Him to stop the fire, because Desire is the only child of the DPO after waiting for 15 years with no child. If the child dies, this case will become more complicated for you!”.. He said and rushed out of the room

For few minutes I did not hear anything. I wanted to know more about what was happening, I stood up and since I had no handcuffs on, I walked out of the torture room and walked towards the police counter expecting to see someone there, and behold no one was there.
I found myself walking out of there towards the entrance, yet I saw no one...

“ Where was everyone?” I asked myself, but I didn’t have the power to stop. At that point I knew I was in a dream, so I kept walking towards the main gate.

Surprisingly again as I looked ahead in this dream, the main gate of the police station was wide open. With a little distance between the main gate and I, I overheard two people discussing inside the gatehouse...

“ Is that how you are going to leave the gate opened?” One of them asked furiously

“ My shift is over, You are the one to open and close the gate, I just helped you open the gate when I saw the way the DPO and Adegoke were rushing out, so for you to close it has become an issue....” the other replied

“ But what stopped you from finishing what you started... You are just proving that you are older than I am, You better get this truth into your brain, we are both workmates, don’t bring your age into work...In fact you should be ashamed of yourself, that at your age you are still at this level in police work!”

“ I have told you to stop talking about my age”

I think someone slapped the other, because I heard the sound followed by the sound of people fighting and pushing themselves...

I kept moving unnoticed, my heart was pumping really hard but I kept moving and suddenly I remembered that the Prison doors opened to Peter and Peter thought he was having a dream as well. Could this be real?

I pinched myself and I didn’t wake up...

Or was this What the Bible meant by “ When the Lord turned again the Captivity Of Zion,they were like them that dreamed”....

“ Oh! How sweet it is to know and be a friend of God” My heart was full of Joy...This was real and I was walking out of my prison unhindered. This was my own prison door opening unto me...

I stepped out!


I stepped out!


Still can’t say how but I got out and at that point, it felt like I heard a still small voice say to me...

“ No matter the kind of prison you find yourself, be it a sexual prison, or any other kind of prison as long as you do not compromise and bow to the pressures of the devil, I can bring you out...It is a simple arithmetic...


“ Chuks... Chuks...That’s him, thank you Jesus!” I must have walked some minutes away from the police station when I saw a car park beside me. I heard Favour’s voice and I saw seated inside the car with her an elderly man...

“ Thank you Jesus!,” I heard her saying...”Chuks get into the car” She said, but I didn’t comply. I kept walking away from her car and she kept driving close to me..

“ I am sorry, Chuks, it’s all the devil’s handiwork. I don’t know what came over me please, hear me out at least...” Favour said

“ Young man, come into the vehicle, I was the man that was trying to plead your case with the vigilantes last night...After you left, the Spirit of God didn’t give me rest for 3 hours as I tried to sleep. I had to ring the emergency bell on the street, and when all the tenants gathered. I asked if anyone knew you as I explained the scenario and your friend here broke into tears. On her way here she has explained everything and I have told her, where she got it wrong. She had a good intention of helping you grow, but she went about it the wrong way. I Told her she could have taken you to church, but she said she was skeptical as the church had received a lot of supposedly new babes in Christ who turned out to be scams at the end of the day robbing the church and exploiting the church members. She said she wanted you to grow to a certain level before taking you to church, but I have told her, she could have gone about it differently because no matter how spiritual a single man or woman is, It is wrong to accommodate the opposite Sex in your house. Even as a married man or woman, you don’t accommodate anyone you are sexually attracted to in your house because when your spouse is not around, you could fall into temptation., so we have discussed a better arrangement. You can stay with me till God settles you...” He said and by that time, he had alighted from the car and was standing in front of me.

My Spirit instantly clicked with the idea.

Quietly, without saying anything to either of them, I entered into the back seat..

We drove in total silence. The only audible sound in the vehicle was coming from Favour as she was sobbing profusely and talking to her self.

When we got to the elderly man’s house which was in front of the place I had been picked up the night before, I got down from the vehicle and walked towards Favour who had her head bowed in shame.

“ Favour, I am not mad at you, and I don’t condemn you, I just had to ...” I was saying before she cut in

“ It’s ok, I am sorry for messing up...” She said with her head still bowed

“I know, Sometimes the Spirit of lust creeps in silently and when not spiritually careful, we may fall victim of the devil’s pit!”

“ You are right but mine is deeper...You know I told you that after we left the university, I messed up, but later came back to my senses?” She asked

“ Yes I remember but you never mentioned what really happened” I replied

Favour looked towards the elderly man, and the elderly man got the message...

“ I will be inside, when you are through, you can come in.” He said as he left us.

I was tired but I wanted to hear what Favour had to say that demanded privacy..

“ Can we sit in the car to avoid onlookers as it is almost daybreak?”

We sat in the vehicle...

“ I met Eugene after our NYSC, he was the son of the owner of the company I was working with....
