Battle For Justice (A short Story) – Season 1 Episode 7 [Completed]

*****Episode Seven*****

The police officers arrested Peter and took him to the police station while Franklin followed them from behind.

They got to the police station and Peter was yelling at the police officers saying “They have no right whatsoever to arrest him when they have no concrete evidence of him stealing”. Peter thought Franklin had no evidence.

Franklin came to the police station some seconds later and told the police to give him some minutes to speak with Peter alone which they gave him.

After the police men left them alone, Franklin turned to Peter with a smirk on his face.

Peter: Sir what is the meaning of this?

Franklin: I told you that you are going to settle Ekene directly or indirectly and this is just a step on achieving that

Peter: You did tell me but arresting me without any evidence of me stealing from you won’t make me to settle him

Franklin: That’s where you are wrong because I have more then enough evidence

Peter: If you do have any then let me see them.

Franklin brought some document inside the briefcase he was holding and gave them to Peter. And Peter collected the documents and went through them only for him to discover that they are the photocopies of the documents of the house and three plot of lands he bought when he was still learning trade with Franklin.

Peter: How did you get these?

Franklin: I have my ways of finding out things just like the way you were about to find out that Ekene has a baby mama. I knew you stole from me but yet I still settled you.

Peter: Sir you still have no case against me because these documents here are not the originals but the photocopies

Franklin: Peter that’s where you are wrong again because I also have the originals

Peter: You can’t have the original documents because they are with me

Franklin: Let’s see about too

Franklin brought out another document from his briefcase and gave them to Peter and Peter was very surprise to see the original documents with Franklin

Peter: Where did you get these from?

Franklin: That’s story for another day Peter

Those original documents were given to Franklin by Kate because she too wanted justice for Ekene

Peter knows hat if Franklin should take him to court, he was going to win so he decided to beg Franklin

Peter: Sir I am ready to settle Ekene but please don’t take this case to court

Franklin: I won’t listen to your own pleas same way you didn’t listen to Ekene’s own. Now is the time for me to recover all you stole from me. See you in court.

Franklin left the police station to his house while Peter was regretting why he didn’t want to settle Ekene in the first place because he was very sure if he didn’t deny Ekene his settlement, Franklin wouldn’t have arrested him for stealing from him.

Peter didn’t allow the case to be taking to court because he knows that there is no way he was going to win it. He told the police that he is willing to pay Franklin all the money he stole and everything was calculated and the total money he paid was 8 millionaire. The police gave the money to Franklin but Franklin called Ekene to his shop and gave him the whole 8 millionaire.

Ekene was very surprise so he asked Franklin why he arrested Peter because of the money only for him to end up giving him the money and Franklin told him that “he only arrested Peter because he wanted justice for what Peter did to Ekene”.

Ekene collected the money and told Franklin that “he will forever remain grateful to him and also indebted to him”

Ekene use four million to start up a business which was successful and kept the rest in the bank.

Ekene was able to give his mum, Ifeoma and Uchenna the kind of life he has always wanted to give them and he later got married to Ifeoma.
