(Episode 7) Thorn that almost altered my Destiny … An intriguing Story!

Funke having ended the call with her Uncle looks at Kate,


Kate: “who was that?” she asks

Funke: “Your dad!,” swallows spit, “they’ve found the bag!” she says with excitement

Kate: “They have found the bag and so?  Are you still interested in traveling abroad?  What do you have to travel abroad for when you can acquire more riches and connection here in a shorter time? Hmmm, you are yet to know how profitable this idea I’m bringing up is, wait till you give it a try”

Funke: “I have always dreamt of traveling abroad. I encountered lot of troubles coming to Abuja, my father’s motor cycle was stolen where he left it to take me to the park, I can’t tell you all I encountered on my way here, I don’t even know if my parents will survive when I tell them that I won’t travel again. I just have to go, after my studies, material things will come afterwards I believe.”

Kate: “Hmm, what do you intend to do? ‘cos I must go clubbing this night o.”

Funke: “Okay. Can you please tell the driver to turn back home, please?” she pleads with discomfort

Kate: “No, I can’t o! Can’t you see the holdup on the other lane is times two of ours? No way. I can only tell the driver to drop you here so you can find your way home or you’d have no choice but to follow me to go make some millions. Make your choice, sweetheart”

Funke is confused, she is not familiar with the road, and how will she get home? She is about to go down when her phone beeps.

Funke: “Hello, Uncle.”

Her Uncle: “Where are you?  Don’t bother coming home again, just take a cab to the airport and we will meet you there with your bag. Your parents have been calling me and I don’t want you to get stuck in hold up on your way here. You hear me?”

The call ends,

Kate: “What did he say?”

Funke: “…that I should meet him at the airport”

Kate heaves,

Kate: “Okay, this is the only way I’d help ya. The driver will drop you off at either Berger junction or Area one from there board a taxi that will take you to Airport. Alhaji is already pissed, he hates waiting!”

They drop her off at Berger, on their way she is contemplating if to ask Kate for some cash but with Kate’s attitude she knows it is going to be useless to ask. She plans to take a cab then meet up with her Uncle at the airport who will pay the fare.

She walks to one of the taxi drivers who look at her suspiciously because of the way she is dressed. The other guy standing behind the driver, like an agbero winks at her, she notices and frowns at him then turns to the driver,

Funke: “Take me to the airport.”

Taxi driver: “Na Five Thousand Naira be your money o.”

Funke: “Ah, Kilode? Five Thousand Naira ko, Five Thousand Naira ni. How much did I pay from Ibadan to Abuja? Hehehe” She asks him, sweating nervously as she observes the strange looks from passengers walking towards the other taxis.

Taxi driver: “Abeg abeg, if you no go pay, carry your badluck waka from here. I no get time to bargain. Na Abuja you dey so and na person wey get money dey go airport. If fine geh like you no fit pay 5k to airport, naim be say this world don spoil o. You wan tell me say your boyfriend no give you this money to spend? Abuja babes, una stingy die!” he picks a rag from his car and start cleaning his side mirror, expecting her to walk away.

Funke: “Okay, let us go but you need to work on your temper and the way you talk to people. You don’t have to be rude.”

Taxi driver: “Enter car make we go, all those one wey you dey yarn na English. Time na money.” He opens the back door for Funke and walks to the driver’s corner, hanging the rag around his neck.

They drive to the airport without saying a word to each other. When they get to the airport, Funke comes down and is walking away when the driver calls her back thinking she is trying to escape”

Taxi driver: “Where you dey go when you never pay me my money? “

Funke: “Oh, sorry I forgot. I don’t have any money on me. You have to wait for my uncle to come, I will collect money from him and pay you.”

Taxi driver: “Which kind yeye talk be this? You no get money and you dey carry drop come airport. Say make I wait for your uncle, wetin concern me with your uncle? Na your uncle I drive come here? Na so, I go tanda dey wait make your uncle come when passengers boku for here wey I go carry?”

Funke: “I am sorry, I didn’t mean to waste your time. I thought he would be here before you get here.”

The taxi driver grabs Funke on her hand, his eyes bloodshot and his body shaking with anger.

Taxi driver: “Give me my money before I disgrace you for here. You think say I no know how Abuja prostitutes dey behave? Which uncle you dey wait for? No try me, I go tear this under-wear wey you wear commot beat sense into your head.”

Funke: “Oga, you are embarrassing me, I promise to pay you as soon as my uncle gets…”

A young man steps out of a car and is heading to the departure wing of the airport with a man who appears to be his driver walking behind him holding his traveling bag. He stops on sitting Funke struggling with the driver.

Man: “Excuse me, what’s going on here? This is no place to fight.”

Taxi driver: “Okay, tell this prostitute that I drove from Berger to this place to pay me my money.”

Funke: “Watch your tongue, you illiterate, I am not a prostitute.”

Man: “Okay. How much is the money?”

Taxi driver: “Five Thousand Naira.”

He counts out Seven Thousand Naira and gives it to the driver. “Here, Seven Thousand Naira, Five Thousand Naira for the money she’s owing you and Two Thousand Naira for the time wasted.” He said.

Taxi driver: “Baba o, thank you very much. In fact, I dobale for you.” He bows, making it look like his head is about to off.

Before Funke could express her appreciation to the man, he walks away.


Funke enters the plane and locates her seat number. A man is already seated on the seat next to her and she didn’t bother to greet him because she is preoccupied with her thoughts.

“Fasten your seat belt please, we are just about to take off”, she heard the air hostess say. After takeoff, Funke goes to the restroom to ease herself and when she gets back, her man sitting next to said ‘hi’ she raises up her head and behold it is the man who paid the taxi driver. She didn’t know where to hide her because she remembers the look on his face when the taxi driver referred to her as a prostitute.

Kenny: “Hi. We met before right?”

Funke: “Yes, ern, at the…before the…?

Kenny: “Of course, I know where we met, you were fighting with an ordinary taxi driver who called you a…?

Funke: “Sir, don’t mind the useless and worthless taxi driver. The guy can lie for Africa. I am not a prostitiute and he didn’t pick me up from any club.”

Kenny: “Its okay, I really don’t mind the details only that you shouldn’t be fighting in the public as a lady. It is very wrong. And to think I didn’t even notice when you came and sat next to be. I was so busy reading stories on Adelove blog you know, that’s one sure place for latest updates, jokes and interesting stories that will keep you longing for more.”

Funke: “Oh, Adelove.com, that blog set ghan. I love it so much, its my daily companion, even back then in school, Adelove was reigning among us. His stories can make you forget your pot on the fire.”

Kenny: “Yeah, especially with the economic situation in Nigeria, such rib cracking updates and stories with moral lessons on Adelove are good ways to find humour, relieve tension and catch your fun.”

Funke: “Okay, I hope I will be able to access the blog from America, sha. I can’t imagine not visiting that blog in a day.”

Kenny: “Of course you can, you are so funny. My name is Kenny, Whats yours?”

Funke: “I am Funke.”

Kenny: “Okay. So, what are you going to do in America?”

Funke: “I am going to study. I got a scholarship.”

Kenny: “Really? You must be a very intelligent girl. Well, I live in the US and I work there too.”

Funke: “Okay, what about your wife and children?”

Kenny: “I am single. My parents live in Abuja, I came to visit them.”

Funke: “Where do you work in America?”

Kenny: “I am a business man, I am into importing and exporting. We will talk about my kind of business as we get to know each other more.”


When they get to America, Funke feels tired and dizzy. She had spent a good part of the flight talking to the stranger and she feels like she has known him all her life. She had also slept briefly but she couldn’t sleep properly because she is afraid that the plane will fall off from the sky should she close her eyes in good sleep. When they are approaching the arrival wing of the airport for security checks, Kenny, her companion said to her.

Kenny: “You are going to hold my hand luggage and pretend that it’s yours. I will go first for the check and you come after the person behind me. I will be waiting for you outside.

Funke: “I don’t understand. Why should I help you carry your hand luggage and pretend that it is mine? I wasn’t the one who held it for you in the airport at Nigeria.”

Kenny: “We are friends now, aren’t we? This is America, stop thinking the Nigerian way. In America, friends help friends hold their bags, its not a big deal. After all, we are going to spend the night in my house tonight. I want to show you around and introduce you to my friends.”

Funke: “But, we didn’t talk about following you to your house tonight. I need to go to the University, an accommodation is there waiting for me and I need to begin my registration at the University early tomorrow morning, else, it will be assumed that I have forfeited my scholarship and it will be given to another person.”

Kenny: “You don’t worry about that. I live close to where your University is located, I will drive you there tomorrow morning.”

Funke: “Okay, since the University is close to your house, no problem. But about your hand luggage…”

Kenny: “No but, take it and if the security personnel question you, tell them it’s yours.”

Funke didn’t know if she should be nice to the man who paid the taxi driver that was bent on embarrassing her or she should refuse to carry the bag since she didn’t know what is inside. She remembered all the advice her parents gave her and stories she read and heard about how people were set up in situations like this.

Question: Should she carry the bag for the stranger? What is inside? Why did he tell her to claim the bag as hers? What does he want her to follow him to his house for?

  10. Ahaneku Mirian Nelson Ahaneku Mirian Nelson Icharity , basically is a networking platform…
    Basically you register for free
    Then to start earning you upgrade to grade 1 with #6,000

    GRADE 1
    To start earning
    Its just like building a pyramid (networking)
    Every stage is in multiples of 5
    When you upgrade to grade 1, you are entitled to 5 people being registered under you
    Who pay #6,000 each to you
    That is 30,000 in total
    At this Grade 1 you have made your intital investment back (#6,000) and profit (#30,000 – #6,000) = #24,000

    GRADE 2
    To get to grade 2, you would need to upgrade with #12,000 to your assigned level 2 upliner
    (Remember you still have a profit of #24,000 from stage 1)
    #24,000 – #14)12,000 = #12,000
    So even as you are upgrading to grade 2 you still have #12,000 profit.
    Now at this stage remember i said every stage is in multiples of 5 (number of members in the previous stage x 5)
    So at grade 2 you will have 25 downliners in your tree (5×5)
    Now when these 25 members are due for a grade 2 upgrade they will pay #12,000 each to you just as you have paid to upgrade to grade 2
    Thats a total of #300,000 earning for grade 2

    GRADE 3
    From this point on it gets reaally beautiful, here the millions start rolling in.
    To upgrade to grade 3, you would upgrade by donating #24,000 to your assigned upliner
    Now in grade 3, your pyramid should be looking really strong as you would have 125 people under the 25 people under the 5 people directly under you. You get??


    Now when these 125 downliners of yours are due for a grade 3 upgrade, they will be making a payment of #24,000 each to you, that is a total of #3,000,000 (#3 million)call 07087704704.http://icharity.club/member/register/?ref=ndubest1982

  11. I guarantee you will start earning at least N3,000 directly into your Nigerian bank account with every hour of work. I am not selling anything to you. Instead, everything is laid bare, here and now 100% FREE. But, if you are too lazy to read, don’t ever complain you are not rich and don’t ever say people are looking down on you for being poor.This is an introduction to the 500 Naira Network, a program that has been around since 2012. Instead, I am reviewing this program based on independent findings I made about it.The 500 Naira Network enables you to earn series of N300 and other bonuses. It has earned its name from the fact that you become a full member of the network by contributing a one-time sum of Five Hundred Naira (N500) only. From the 500 Naira Network‘s FAQ page, I gather that the program is ‘NOT an autosurf, multi-level marketing, pyramid, ponzi, matrix or “Get Rich Quick” scheme’. But it is basically a referral-based network. Your earning increases with the number of people you are able to bring into the network. As soon as one of your down lines activates his/her account by paying the sum of N500, your account gets credited with the sum of N300. Also, whenever one of your down lines withdraws his/her earning, you are paid 5% of your down line’s earning. This means you can refer a number of people and stop referring and you will still be earning. It also tells of the necessity of taking care of your down lines because the more they earn, the more you earn. The payout is N2000 and you can withdraw it directly into your Nigerian bank account immediately. What this means is once your earning accumulates up to N2000, you can request for it to be sent into your Nigerian bank account. http://www.500naira.com?aff=GOLDMIND.
