E'bami ki'gbe Ole'

One day bush meat go catch d hunter
One day bush meat go catch d hunter
Catch d hunter, catch d hunter...... sound sultan

I got a distressing phone call from a friend, Noooo!!! He didn’t lose his job, phone or his girlfriend, rather he lost his car, as in his car was STOLEN from the CHURCH where had gone to worship GOD, but that’s not the issue, the koko is that 'Emy' has decided to quit the Catholic Church, their offence: They still cant xplain how the vehicle was moved from their parking lot *sigh* Your’s truly has spent the last 1hour begging him via the net to no avail, not that i blame him tho' i remember how he scratched n saved to buy d helicopter, oops! i meant car :-)
But make una wait o!! Why we no dey fear God sef?? Imagine' going to steal from the Church (despite the fact dat we thief 4rm our parents, husband/boyfi, wife/girlfi, office, government, market, school, friends, colleagues, passengers, customers) *hiss* Haba!! or isn’t the church supposed to be a sacred place?
This seems to be the latest trend cos’ two weeks ago, my colleague also lost her bag (containing every…) in one of the pentecostal Churches where she had followed her friend to worship, according to her, she only left her seat to give offering not knowing dat her bag was being eyed, dem search for the bag soteeeey……… neways i don tell her say, The person wey borrow her bag don buy gbese (wetin i go tell 'Emy'??)

But Ndi nkem, there’s a twist to this stealing in the church gist o’ Dangote was telling me on sunday, that after mass he had seen a N1000 note on the floor close to the exit and was also sure other parishioners had seen it too but were either scared/shy to pick it, Him too jejely walked pass the money; NOW could it mean that they are no thieves in that parish, or that they didn’t attend that mass?? (i don ask una 4 questions o)

On a lighter side, dis money for ground matter just remind me of those days we used to play pranks (nowadays Shi’dren na only ps2 and shakira dem sabi) *wide grin* so on this particular day, awon boys don arrange handkerchief with paper inside (una remember how our papa/mama dey keep money inside handkerchief then tie am so e no go lost?) ehen’ na so awon boys tie the hanky then keep am for middle of road, go hide for corner to see the oju-kokoro wey go pick am thinking say na money dey inside; After some mins, one Baba appear for street, when he got to where the hanky was lying, he use his leg to kick ‘it’ forward like football, we began to giggle anticipating his next move; Baba-wise continued to kick the 'hanky' at the same time looking behind him to see if anyone was watching, when he had gotten to the end of the street, na so all of us rush out from our hideout' begin pursue am dey shout’
Ole! Ole! Baba Ole!!! Baba Ole!!! omo as soon as Baba-wise see us, na so him pick up the hanky begin tear race...... laugh nearly bend me :-)

Eh ya, sorry bout your friend's car o, it's terrible when your car is stolen, my husband's car was stolen a few weeks before our wedding. we don get better one sa! lol..the yeye insurance company sef no gree pay, hope your friend has insurance o! and to thieves in church, well some of them just see it as another place to perpetrate their evil deeds. Last year when N73 was reigning seriously, hubby bought me one very nice chocolate and silver and about two weeks later it was stolen in church! Church at tape stand! I still feel like cursing the thief but the love of God constrains me..lol

LOL. Na wa for Baba wise o.

It's sad that people do lack conscience. I don't think it makes any difference where things are stolen. It's just plain wrong.

Thieves go to places of worship cos there's more 'opportunities' there. People are not as vigilant and tend to relax thinking 'no one would dare steal here'.
This makes them prime targets for pouncing oles.

LG said...

WRITEFREAK: swerri, na so we see am o' me sef hope say him do insurance, d guy still dey provoke *sigh* e go beta jare but as 4'dos' thieves....

Feel sorry for ur friend's car but thats no reason to stop going to church..but then who am I to say? I have stopped church cos rain beat me on the way there, as in thouroughly beat me oh...soaked to the pant...

princesa said...

This stealing cars from churches parking lots seem to be the trend for ndi Oshi now o!
They also stole my friend's car from the church and coincidentally it was a catholic church. you sure say no be the same church?

In my church they advise everyone should install security in their cars now.

How body?

Afrobabe said...

Lmao...see Princesa...When I came I saw 4 ppl online, see race...hahahahahah

Dee! said...

"Last days". How else can one describe it? How can a sane being enter the house of God Almighty to steal? I no blame them! Its because God is God! Yeah! If na sango shrine dem no go fit try am.

Whenever I go to give my offering or whenever I have to leave my seat in the Church, I ALWAYS carry my bag! lol. Yes O!

I pray these criminals change before it becomes too late. . . or else . . . na HELL straight.

LOL at Baba wise!

NikkiSab said...

I understand his anger. Just last week we parked outside St. Agnes n went for 6.30am by d time we came out we noticed d drivers side was open but nothing gone so we figured we forgot to lock dat side which is real real stange. At d end of d day my hubby opened d boot to get his dirty laundry n noticed d bag was gone. So d only reason we came to find d car was cos steering was locked. Dis audacity of theives is unbelievable. E b like na xmas season started early. hmm..I pray 4 dem.

Rita said...

Gone are the days when Church was regarded as a sacred place...

The truth is, it is human beings that come to church. What they can do elsewhere they can still do in church...I'm not surprised.

Thanks so much for checking up on me. It's been very hectic time the last few weeks. Thank God for the public holiday...

auntie mi hw far na??

Long time no post!

Hope ure ok

simplegal said...

Nwanne kekwanu? lol @ baba-wise! Age does not hamper criminal tendencies oh!

Thieves have no repect for anything; after all, some theives pray before they go on their 'missions'. I remember one of our neighbours back home said when she was being robbed, she screamed Jesus, and the one of the theives replied, "Shut up! Did we say we don't know him too?" *Shakes head* Sad state of affairs...

Black Berry said...

lol! mehn allow it..if u can steal in church..u can steal anywhere!!

Tairebabs said...

Kia LG I have missed ur blog o. see me laughing my head off. But na wa o. Stealing in church is too bad o. Stealing self is bad on its own but church again. My dad has lost two mobil phones in the church in my village. That was how I called him one sunday when he was in the village and he picked up and I was like are you not going to church and he goes that church that all they do is steal, even me I had to laugh.

But this helicopter (kidding as well) they stole is not funny o.

NikkiSab said...

I don won complain say u no answer me before i see Mrs ibodude...lol!!! We de kampe!!! how was d weekend? Oya update o.

Uzezi said...

in those days, if u see money on the floor, u dont pick it else u turn into a tuber of yam or something. so Baba knew what he was doing.


very sad about ur friend's car. some people go to churches to steal cos they know that is the place where people wont be on the watch.

no conscience at all, and there i was being very guilty for a full week because i wrote a test in church and cheated to get 6 over ten.

me had to return to do a makeup test to erase my guilt and got nine.

Ur friend should leave Caholic church cos of that. it could happen anywhere, especially when the car park doesnt have security men, and securities measures.

long time chick, how u dey?

Afronuts said...

I guess thieves find churches a good place to 'make money' so when all attention is on God, their attention are on ur valuables.

Maan...they'll be cursed by doing such things oh...

And talking about the prank on the baba...u kids were evil lol

Olamild said...

Ole ajiboleeeeeeeeeee
