Cut Your Coat According To Your Size by ajuksobi: 9:07am On Dec 10, 2023

Ajukura, Fidelis O.
10th December, 2023.

A beautiful looking and light skinned lady was, within the week caught in Gboko, Benue State for stealing a goat. The lady who is said to be a single mother of two children was caught when she was negotiating to sell the goat. The lady was later paraded round the town with the goat by angry youths.

Now, what could have precipitated such a beautiful looking and able-bodied lady to condescend to stealing a goat? Could it be hunger/poverty? Or she's just a lousy kleptomaniac?

Personally, I do not share the sentiment that hunger can push one into stealing. It is true that hunger and poverty have the propensity to make a man act or behave in ways considered improper. However, one does not need to steal to survive. There are countless ways of defeating or overcoming hunger without stealing. Whoever steals and blames it on hunger and poverty is only deceiving him/herself. He or she is first and foremost a thief! Many people who steal do so out of laziness and over bloated ego (they think too highly of themselves). There are also people who suffer from persistent neurotic impulse to steal; most of the time, they steal without a motive.

In analyzing this issue, some people have digressed by blaming the system. That we have a corrupt system where those in authority steal from our commonwealth is not a justification to steal from another person who, perhaps, is going through more severe economic or financial hardship.

The lady, obviously is guilty of stealing but lucky to have escaped being lynched. Except the condition of Kleptomania which is viewed as a mental illness, man has no justifiable reason to steal.

In order not to be cut short in a most tragic manner, learn how to cut your coat according to your size!
