Not Everyone Would Understand The Journey. Not Everyone Would Be Proud Enough To Share their Story but a quick recap would do if Time permits. I Might Not Be Able To Withhold My Tears but God willing, I’ll ensure I write this to the Very Last!?
Dating back to this day 5 years ago, I was moved to pursue this Amiborous course after an experience that i never thought could happen to anybody in the world
I was just A 17years old Scholar with Youthful Exuberance but yet again, I acquainted Myself with lots of reading, writing and I also had love for Investigative Journalism though working ordinarily as an editor for an Online Media Platform until I stumbled upon an issue of a then Senator whose 26Years Old Son Raped a 2Year old Child.
On that day, I was at a Friends House While the Teary Aunt of this little child who visited them, told this “Heart Breaking & Ear Sickening Ordeal” while she wept profusely.
The Child who lived with her parents in the City was playing with her mates when this Ravaging Paedophile Called her to come and buy something for him. On getting there, he lured her inside and forcefully defiled her. She couldn’t walk back home hence, he brought her out and laid her on the ground and went his way while she bled
Passersby who saw him drop her, on knowing whose the little was, ran straight to the parents who couldn’t believe their eyes, went straight to the predators house and this time, his parents were all around
Instead of doing the needful, The Senator Selfishly wanted Protect His Image and Name & Sort to pay this poor girl’s Family Off but after they rejected it despite the Senator’s Countless Trials, He Resorted to threats. He Threatened Thunder & Lightening. He even went as far as threatening them that should this news spread further, that “He Will Ensure He Wipes Their Remnants From The Earth Surface”.
Few days later, the Child Died.
While this Woman told this traumatizing Ordeal of theirs, I was lost in thoughts,? though I had nothing, but I knew I could help?
After the day’s discussion, I reached out to her. I advised her to tell the Bereaved Family that when next the Senator Comes, they should pretend to have accepted his Offer since they’ve already lost their Little One and When He Stretches his arms to give them his ill gotten money, let every moment of it be captured from a far.
The day came and just as we agreed, we got what we wanted and thereafter, the Bereaved Father knowing the Plan, Went on an Emotional Outburst hence, Retracting his Words and Returning his money back to him. I was forwarded Every Details I could need and instantly, I went into action. I published it and since its a Renown platform then, within the first few Hours of its publication, the news went viral. Before I could even say Jack, I’ve started receiving Life threatening calls From the Then Senator’s Camp.
For the First time in My Entire Life, I knew I was on a ‘Just Course’ and if perhaps I die for it, I also knew I would have died right.
Later that day, I was having Conversing With My Father when a call came through. I picked and Lo & Behold, It Was The Senator’s Lawyer.
He Began Like this; “Hello Young Lady, I’m Senator (Name Withheld) Attorney and I’m here to inform you that you have been charged to court for Defamation of Character, False Accusation, this, this and that”…Before He Could Conclude, I bursted into laughter??… It was a teary one but I wasn’t scared even if I go in for it… Hahaha!
My Father on Hearing what I’ve gotten myself into, was left speechless. I sat close to him and beckoned on him to Lend Me 1Million. He shockingly asked me; 1Million? I answered yes and he bursted into a long laughter…. And then he asked, Treasure Are You Mad? Where Did You See One Million? Do I look like I have 1Million to give you for trouble??????Lol
I felt fed up with the height of the immoralities going on in our Society. I intended using that money to start Up a Charity Organization/Foundation tasked. Would See to Such Issues but yet again, I was way too young.
I knew I could not fight it all but at least, I could try. While we were contemplating on this, a thought came to my mind and immediately, I decided to initiate it. I shared photographs of that awkward moment the Senator was handing the bribe to the Bereaved Parents via MMS to the Senator’s Attorney and without any hesitation, He Called and Words Changed. He was now begging. Please Don’t Post that too…hahaha??
“How Much Do We Pay You To Bring The Post Down” He asked. They even offered Me #300,000 in order not to implicate him more and to also bring down the Post.
As days went by and I was vehemently Keen on My Decision, they reached out to the Owner of the platform who joyfully, brought down the post while smiling to the Bank. If you don’t accept it, someone else will, She Said To Me and that was the last time I worked with her ever again.
