Temilade episode 5
Early in the morning, we observed our morning
prayer. I told my mum about the dream.
Mum: since you have prayed about it, no evil will
come over you.
Me: amen. I went to kitchen to prepare our breakfast.
About 8:30 I heard an alert on my phone which was
bank alert of #50,000. I thought over the suprise alert that can it be the LION I saw in my dream. I concluded
that God will save me from it.
I took the food to my dad in hospital. Afterward I
went straight to Chief house in which I met his absence.
I asked his house girl his where about.
The girl: I don’t know.
Cook: (interrupted) he left home since yesternight.
Me: to where?
Cook: you are funny! Did you except me to be asking
Me: okay you can go to your duty.
Just then, he called…….
Chief: where are you now? Am waiting for you.
Me: am coming. Where are you as
Chief: am at home waiting.
Me: I will join you there.
What is happening? Where he went to since yesterday? Why is he telling lie??
I quickly left his house and hang around to watch him.
I told his worker not to tell him that I have came before.
Thirty minutes later I saw him drove in. I called him
that I was near his house. He told me to wait for himat junction.
Since he said junction, I quickly rushed down to the
junction. On my way going a pastor stopped me……….
Pastor: peace be unto you.
Me: amen sir.
Pastor: the spirit of the Lord
told me that, there is a casket waving around your
head. The Lord added that you should not travel this
time as it may lead to your destruction. This is what
the lord said. Alaafia(peace).
I just took his word with levity.
Later, I entered his car and drove toward the village.
As we are going, I kept praying to God to save me
from any enemy plan for my life.
Chief: we are almost there, just about two kilimeters more.
Me: okay dear.
Chief: I bought this snacks for you.
Me: (pretended) you forgot today is Thursday? Am
Chief: oh am sorry! But how king will over Queen
something and will refused. Me: am sorry I will eat it
when i break. I collected the snack and put it in my
Chief: why are you embarrassing me?
Me: sorry dear! You knew I do fast on monday and
thursday so don’t be offended.
Chief: okay if you insisted but am not happy with it.
I did as if I don’t hear what he said…….
Me: thanks dear for the money you sent to my
Chief: don’t mention!
His phone rang………
Chief: hello Baba.
The following response from Chief is “we are almost there, hum! Ehn! Yes!! I saw her.
Me:(interrupted) who are you speaking with?
Chief: it’s Bab….no my uncle.
Five minutes later, we arrived the village.
The age-wife/”>village has about just 50 olden days building.
Chief: wait inside the car let me check Baba inside.
He went in………..a guy came to me.
Guy: you better run for your dear life now.
Me: why? What happened?? Do you know me
Guy: stay there if you like!
When I heard this, I took to my heel.
I ran as fast as I
can. When I heard a movement of car, I hide inside bush. He called and I don’t pick his call.
when I got to a point, I was so fatiqued so I. took a rest. I remembered how Chief Abiodun did in the first day and there after. I kept asking myself
‘what could chief plan be? Can he plan to harm me?
What can he have in mind to me?? Is he a ritualist?
Oh my goodness!!!
I suddenly saw his car……what?? I left that spot and entered bush running like a cobra chasing it prey. When I have covered some distance I stopped.
As I was resting, I discovered that I was hearing a foot step; though I was tired but I took another route.
I innocently fell into a deep hole. I screamed like a
wounded lion, nobody could help me. I picked up my
phone to call my mum……
Mum: hello dear.
Me: yes ma.
Mum: how are you?
Me: I’m not fine! Infact am in danger(crying).
Mum: Subuanalah! What happened?
Me: the chief I told you about is a ritualist.
Mum: Lahilailahlah! Humanbeing are wicked. Where are you now?
Me: I don’t even kno………w(stammering).
Mum: Ori mi o(oh my fate)! Where do I go?
Me: I have turned deaf hear to your advice I’m sorry.
Before she could respond again, my BB shutdown. At
that point in time, I felt hopeless. I recalled how God
revealed this to me in my dream yet I turned adamant. He still sent another man to me which I ignored. Oh my God! Forgive all my sins and inequity.
I knew I ignored your warnings due to my greediness and covetousness.
(Crying) astagafurulahi! astagafurulahi!! astagafurulahi!!! I don’t know when tears started rolling down from my cheek. Oh God I’m I going to end
my life here? Is this how Temilade will die?? I’m I not
going to see my family again??? Haaa! I’m doomed! I cried until I slept off.
I woke up to found myself tied down at that Baba house looking like a drugged baboon. Baba and chief started the atonement……..
Baba: are you sure she’s complete?
Chief: yes Baba, I have used the ring you gave me to
confirm that right from the first day I met her.
Baba: it shall be well with you omo mi (My child).
Chief: I have spent a lot for her before I could get her.
If not for those guy she would have escaped totally.
Baba: give all the thanks to Orunmila.
Chief: Orunmila modupe ooo.
Baba: Ifaponle oo?
Ponle: yes the wise one.
Baba: go and bring the calabash.
Ponle: yes sir.
Baba: remove all your cloth now.
Baba: as I told you earlier that you will be making
sacrifice to Orisa aje(deity of money) every six months.
So, you will use what in this calash to rub your manhood to have sex with her.
Chief: hope she will not die?
Baba: if she die, has she not collected her prize? She
will not die but she will be barren for the rest of her
Chief: okay thank you. So far she will not die, I’m okay
Baba: listen carefully, after this atonement you must
never have any relationship or whatsoever with her again nor spending your money for her. If you can keep this warning no problem for you,
Chief: I will abide by it.
Baba: I will go and wait for you outside so be fast.
I watched him as he removed his clothes from shirt, signet, trouser and even boxer. He placed the calabash just below his jaw and started chanting incantations after which he rubbed the content of the calabash and asked me to lie on my back. I can’t even repel as I obeyed him without any iota of struggle, no wonder I was under an effective command. I did
as he instructed waiting for the worst to happened.
In the process, I remembered when my father was alive.
He called me on that faithful day………
Daddy: Monsurat! Monsurat!! Monsurat!!!
Me: yes sir.
Daddy: how many time did I called you?
Daddy: you’re my eldest child and I’m proud of you always. Listen to me carefully, as a Muslim, you should note that nothing in life is permanent. There’s time of hardship as well as enjoyment. When you’re in enjoyment, becareful and remember God that He owns the later. Also, when you’re in hardship, I mean in time of testing, when problem arised, remember Allah(God) and pray unto him to take away your burden because the holy Quran says “a believer will be subjected to series of test and only those who have patience and persevearance
with it will be among the dweller of paradise”. And to crown it all, for every help human being rendered to you, they’ll demand something in return so take Him as your helper.
Me: thanks daddy, I will heed to it sir.
Daddy: alright dear go and meet your mummy in kitchen.
I shook my head as hot tears tricked down my cheek. I silently pray in my mind for his mercy.
As he attempted to climb my chest, I regained my. consciousness and started shouting………..ALLAHU! ALLAHU!! .ALLA……..HU!!! Dragging with him (only God know where that strenght came from). Before I know it, I found myself in the pit (hole) I fell into. I must have slept for close to three hours judging from darkness that have overthrown the day.
Though I was breathing heavily and sweating profusely. I kept saying Alhamudulilah (thank God).
When I regained my balance, I asked myself “Will I be here forever? What can I do now? Oh God have mercy upon me (crying and wailing at pitch of my voice).
Few minutes later, I suddenly saw a torch tracing my voice. I was muted because I don’t know may be it’s my pursuant
or evil spirit.
When I listened to the foot steps, I discovered it’s human being. I shouted e gba mi ooooo (somebody help me ooo)!
Hunter: eranko abi eyan (human being or animal)?
Me: eyan ni sir (it’s human being sir).
Hunter: kin lo n se ninu igbo dudu yi (what are you doing in this dark forest)?
Me: I escaped from ritualist den, which led me to this bush. As I was running I fell into this pit.
Hunter: o ma se o! Pele(what a pity)! Sorry.
Me: please help me I can’t climb up.
Hunter: na owo re soke (stretch your hands up).
I did as he said. He pulled me up from the pit.
When I came out I discovered one of my leg is seriously injured which I can’t use to walk.
Me: please sir my leg is injured I can’t walk.
Hunter: nibo ni o ti wa (where are you from)?
Me: am from Ila but I lived in Osogbo.
Hunter: hmmm! Ila-Orangun omo ogboye. Ila-Orangun omo alagogo kin to memu (rendering Ila eulogy) ilu iya mi nu(that’s my mother’s town).
Me: thank you sir.
Hunter: maa mu o lo si aba mi ka le wa nkan fi si ese re yi(I will take you to my settlement, so that I can take care of your leg).
With his help, He led me down to his village. His wife prepared a delicious meal for me.
He applied ointment to my leg after which I felt relieved. I passed the night with them. In the following morning I woke up to found out that the village contain just about three. settlements…………
Me: e kaaro (good morning sir).
Hunter: bawo ni omo mi(how are you my daughter)?
Me: I feel better now.
Hunter: Oluwaseun (thank God).
Me: please how can I charge my phone?
Hunter: there is a town about two Kilometer from here you can charge it over there.
Me: thanks sir. Please sir can I get water to bath?
Hunter: (called his wife) Odebunmi!
Wife: yes Baba.
Hunter: please get water to bathroom for her.
I went in to the bathroom and took my bath.
Only God know what HE have in stock for me.
