|Literature / Re: IFY - A Romantic Thriller by 2scorehigh(m): 9:07pm|
Time was running out fast on me. The policemen were not in any haste. In fact, I believe they took so much pleasure in detaining us because they soon left us and continued with their job of stopping and checking other vehicles. To buttress their point, they now ordered our driver to continue his journey while leaving Paul behind.
Paul was looking totally lost and distraught. I took pity on him. Some of the passenger were already making impatient gestures and verbally casting blame on him and saying that he should have brought the receipt instead of causing this whole problem for them and wasting their time while ignorantly claiming he knew his rights. Some others took the opportunity to blame the driver some more for not giving the policeman something.
I knew where all this was heading to. I figured I knew what the policemen wanted. I figured they didn’t care much about the ownership of that old laptop but rather they were only interested in punishing the boy, and to some extent, the driver too, so I moved to where two of the policemen were seated on an improvised wooden bench and addressed one of them who looked more educated and approachable. I started pleading with him to forgive Paul.
I made it appear as if I were siding with them against the silly student who, even though was claiming to know his rights, was still foolish enough not to have brought the common receipt along with him.
To drive my point home, I gently squeezed two two hundred naira notes into his palms. He unfolded it, looked at it and when he found out it was just a four hundred naira, he told me that it was enough to free Paul from the serious offence he had committed.
I laughed and told him that I was doing what I was doing out of my own volition. I didn’t mention that I was attending an interview in Lagos tomorrow and I needed to be in Lagos early enough. I knew I had to be careful what I disclosed to him. Who knows, he might even see and use it as an opportunity to detain us the more so as to exploit us, no, me, some more
I simply told him to consider us that we are just students who depended on our parents for sustenance. I added another two hundred to his till. That seemed to be working. I noticed that he was now relaxing a bit.
He told me to call that foolish student. I called him. As the other passengers watched, together we marched to the place where the other four policemen were standing. He now presented my case to his colleagues. They vehemently opposed and said that Paul must stay behind unless he miraculously produces that receipt
The policeman now pleaded on our behalf. He told his colleagues that I have already provided six hundred naira to that effect and they communed amongst themselves and said that it was not enough.
By now the driver and some of the passengers had joined our small group. They now joined in pleading with the policemen to forgive Paul and let us go. I noticed the impatience on the faces of some of them. At last, the policemen said we had to complete the money and make it up to one thousand naira before we can go. Strangely, for some inexplicable reason, none of them who gathered, not even Paul, seemed willing to do something. Nigerians! Well, what do you expect?
I thought about it. Maybe this was fate at work. Maybe this was the reason why God even allowed me to save that money from that man in the first place. I wanted nothing more than for us to be on the road once more so after feigning some hesitation, I finally gave in and gave them another four hundred naira.
As they accepted it, they told Paul to thank me very well. They also told him to apologize to the officer whom he raised his voice against and he did. The policeman who slapped him now shook hands with him and told him to continue to be a law abiding citizen and warned him to always remember to take his receipts along with him whenever he is travelling with any electronic gadget so as to avoid a similar embarrassment in the future.
I exchanged phone numbers with the police officer I first approached. You don’t know when next you might need his help or bump into each other.
Then they waved us on our way and off we went. I looked at my watch. The whole event had lasted for almost forty something minutes. It was almost half past three and we were still about four hours away from Lagos but I was glad that we were finally on our way—again!
