TEACHER CHUKS; Season 2 (Part 13&14) – Opeyemi Akintunde

Part 13
Opeyemi Akintunde

“ Constable, What do you mean the man has refused to cooperate?” I Overheard the Angry Voice of the DPO. He was obviously coming towards me in the torture room. I had been left in the torture room without handcuffs anymore.

A mini argument had ensued between the two police officers over releasing me in the night.

The Police Officer who had tortured me had pleaded with the Hausa police officer to release me, but Musa had refused bluntly…

“Adegoke, what do you mean we should release him? What do we tell the DPO,when he arrives?”

“ Musa, but you know He is innocent, I can’t add his blood to the list of all the evil I have been forced to do in this station.”

“ I know He is innocent, so also are my wives and my children. I can not be his replacement when DPO gets here and he doesn’t have anyone to present to the family of the boy. if your life is not important, my own life is…As much as I want to help this man because of his serious devotion to God and because he speaks my language, I can’t help him at the expense of my family.” He said furiously

“He is right, you shouldn’t do anything that will affect your family negatively. I was thinking of you helping me more formally, like writing an anonymous letter to the Inspector of Police or better still, help me go to the vicinity where I was picked last night and ask for Miss Favour Aribisala, tell her the situation of things I am sure, she will find a way of getting me out of here. She will be able to testify that I was in her home till 10 pm last night and I do not know who this dead person is…I believe you can do that for me Officers?”

They both nodded their heads and left me in the torture room…This happened about 2 hours before I heard the voice of the DPO.

My hope was that they would help me Find Favour on their way home, and Favour will get to the Police Station before the DPO arrived but unfortunately the DPO came earlier than they even expected. The moment they heard the sound of his car, the police Officer who tortured me by the name Adegoke rushed to me at the torture room…

“ DPO is unusually early, don’t make mention of our plans to him, else he will have you killed and dumped in one of the canals” he said and jumped out of the torture room.

“Constable, What do you mean the man has refused to cooperate?” I heard the DPO voice furiously ringing loud in the air.

“ Oh Lord save me!” I muttered in fear, but all of a sudden I heard in my spirit


I got it…I wasn’t meant to be in silence. Whenever the enemy puts us in any form of prison unjustly, whether physical or spiritual prison, one needed to sing and pray to get one’s freedom…

“You have done it all for me,

I cannot even tell it all

Glory Glory to my God…

Jehovah is the Mighty Mighty God

No one like unto You


I bow before you…”

This was a never heard before song…It just popped out of my Spirit man. As the DPO stepped into the torture room, I didn’t acknowledge his presence,rather I kept acknowledging the Presence and the supremacy of the most High God.

“ Hey, you… why are you not writing your statement?You want me to kill you? I will kill you and no one will ask me.” He said boasting

“ Oh Lord, My God , when I was younger, My father told me that it is written in your Word that the wicked will be given as a ransom for the righteous, not the righteous as a ransom for the wicked… God I will not die for a criminal, The only righteous person you allowed to be a ransom for the wicked was your son Jesus Christ, and by virtue of me connected to Christ I can never become a ransom for another man’s life.”

“ Shut up…Shut up.” The DPO said and turned to the Hausa Police Officer

“ You brought me a pastor?” He asked

“I didn’t know he was one, it was Baba vigilante that brought him like you know sir. It was later I checked through his nylon that I found a Bible.. Maybe he was going for a vigil!” He said

“ Nonsense…., What kind of bad market is this?” His phone rang

“ Oh oh.. I know that should be the parents of the…, thank God it’s my wife…Hello, Yes Gladys, this is not the right time to call, what is it?” He said stepping out of the room but then his voice tempo changed

“ Fire, how?,how … Desire is inside the fire? My Creator!” He said and the two officers rushed after him but instead he turned back to me in the torture room…

“ What have you done?, have you called on God to fight me?” He said as I looked at him blankly.

“ How was I, the cause of fire? and who was Desire to him?”


Part 14
Opeyemi Akintunde

The DPO rushed out after accusing me of whatever was going on with Fire and Desire. The Hausa man returned back to me and spoke to me in Hausa..

“ My brother, If this is the hand of your Jesus or God, it is not a good one ooo, beg Him to stop the fire, because Desire is the only child of the DPO after waiting for 15 years with no child. If the child dies, this case will become more complicated for you!”.. He said and rushed out of the room

For few minutes I did not hear anything. I wanted to know more about what was happening, I stood up and since I had no handcuffs on, I walked out of the torture room and walked towards the police counter expecting to see someone there, and behold no one was there.

I found myself walking out of there towards the entrance, yet I saw no one…

“ Where was everyone?” I asked myself, but I didn’t have the power to stop. At that point I knew I was in a dream, so I kept walking towards the main gate.

Surprisingly again as I looked ahead in this dream, the main gate of the police station was wide open. With a little distance between the main gate and I, I overheard two people discussing inside the gatehouse…

“ Is that how you are going to leave the gate opened?” One of them asked furiously

“ My shift is over, You are the one to open and close the gate, I just helped you open the gate when I saw the way the DPO and Adegoke were rushing out, so for you to close it has become an issue….” the other replied

“ But what stopped you from finishing what you started… You are just proving that you are older than I am, You better get this truth into your brain, we are both workmates, don’t bring your age into work…In fact you should be ashamed of yourself, that at your age you are still at this level in police work!”

“ I have told you to stop talking about my age”

I think someone slapped the other, because I heard the sound followed by the sound of people fighting and pushing themselves…

I kept moving unnoticed, my heart was pumping really hard but I kept moving and suddenly I remembered that the Prison doors opened to Peter and Peter thought he was having a dream as well. Could this be real?

I pinched myself and I didn’t wake up…

Or was this What the Bible meant by “ When the Lord turned again the Captivity Of Zion,they were like them that dreamed”….

“ Oh! How sweet it is to know and be a friend of God” My heart was full of Joy…This was real and I was walking out of my prison unhindered. This was my own prison door opening unto me…

I stepped out!


I stepped out!


Still can’t say how but I got out and at that point, it felt like I heard a still small voice say to me…

“ No matter the kind of prison you find yourself, be it a s€xual prison, or any other kind of prison as long as you do not compromise and bow to the pressures of the devil, I can bring you out…It is a simple arithmetic…


“ Chuks… Chuks…That’s him, thank you Jesus!” I must have walked some minutes away from the police station when I saw a car park beside me. I heard Favour’s voice and I saw seated inside the car with her an elderly man…

“ Thank you Jesus!,” I heard her saying…”Chuks get into the car” She said, but I didn’t comply. I kept walking away from her car and she kept driving close to me..

“ I am sorry, Chuks, it’s all the devil’s handiwork. I don’t know what came over me please, hear me out at least…” Favour said

“ Young man, come into the vehicle, I was the man that was trying to plead your case with the vigilantes last night…After you left, the Spirit of God didn’t give me rest for 3 hours as I tried to sleep.

I had to ring the emergency bell on the street, and when all the tenants gathered. I asked if anyone knew you as I explained the scenario and your friend here broke into tears. On her way here she has explained everything and I have told her, where she got it wrong. She had a good intention of helping you grow, but she went about it the wrong way.

I Told her she could have taken you to church, but she said she was skeptical as the church had received a lot of supposedly new babes in Christ who turned out to be scams at the end of the day robbing the church and exploiting the church members.

She said she wanted you to grow to a certain level before taking you to church, but I have told her, she could have gone about it differently because no matter how spiritual a single man or woman is, It is wrong to accommodate the opposite S€x in your house.

Even as a married man or woman, you don’t accommodate anyone you are s€xually attracted to in your house because when your spouse is not around, you could fall into temptation., so we have discussed a better arrangement. You can stay with me till God settles you…”

He said and by that time, he had alighted from the car and was standing in front of me.

My Spirit instantly clicked with the idea.

Quietly, without saying anything to either of them, I entered into the back seat..

We drove in total silence. The only audible sound in the vehicle was coming from Favour as she was sobbing profusely and talking to her self.

When we got to the elderly man’s house which was in front of the place I had been picked up the night before, I got down from the vehicle and walked towards Favour who had her head bowed in shame.

“ Favour, I am not mad at you, and I don’t condemn you, I just had to …” I was saying before she cut in

“ It’s ok, I am sorry for messing up…” She said with her head still bowed

“I know, Sometimes the Spirit of lust creeps in silently and when not spiritually careful, we may fall victim of the devil’s pit!”

“ You are right but mine is deeper…You know I told you that after we left the university, I messed up, but later came back to my senses?” She asked

“ Yes I remember but you never mentioned what really happened” I replied

Favour looked towards the elderly man, and the elderly man got the message…

“ I will be inside, when you are through, you can come in.” He said as he left us.

I was tired but I wanted to hear what Favour had to say that demanded privacy..

“ Can we sit in the car to avoid onlookers as it is almost daybreak?”

We sat in the vehicle…

“ I met Eugene after our NYSC, he was the son of the owner of the company I was working with….
