    I couldn’t believe my biological father could sentence me to life imprisonment. Don’t blame him please. I am the architect of my own destruction. I used my own hands to dig my own grave. I am now regretting my actions. I could vividly recall my mum’s word before I indirectly killed her…she do tell me that “any child that is not obedient to his/her parent, is definitely billing for his/her own destruction. I understand what her word meant now. Now her words has finally come to pass. I have billed for my own destruction which I must definitely pay for. God! I should have obeyed my parents.
    My name is Tony Jeff, I am the first and the only son of that influential and prominent judge. Ayo Jeff. I am a final year student of Certified University studying Banking and Finance.
    I have two mutual friends named Babalola Seun and Babatunde Sola both nicknamed Blade and Sleek respectively. Blade, Sleek and myself are very influential and popular in school, we re known by both students and lecturers as the best among friends for our bad behaviors and all social immoralities in likes of Raping, Cultism, Stealing, Examination malpractice and murder.
    My father who is a respectable and incorrupt judge. He is an enemy of injustice, He gives fair judgment and always follow what we called “CONSTIUTUTION”. Though he is very stubborn. Assassin has been sent to him in most cases but he always survive their bullets.
    Some months ago, my father was in the hospital for approximately four months as a result of the bullet shot at him on his way to the court. During his stay in the hospital, I neither asked after him talk less of going to the hospital to check on his wellbeing. When he was discharged he went back home and found out that I have frozen his account which my dad and I are both signatory. He locked me up in a police cell for days and it was not has first time of doing that to me. My immediate sister and his senior judge often beg for my release. Who is he not to obey his senior judge.
    I know my parents love me a lot most especially my father. He has beckoned me to change for good and turn a new leave…to the extent he knelt down to me. I always shed crocodile tears whenever he came to beg me for a change, I’ll shed crocodile tears to have him believe that I would heed to his pleas. He also pledge that if I need anything I should let him know at least that would help in changing for good rapidly. All the thrill my friends gave to me was one reason why I couldn’t change for good.
    “you are the only male child of your father and you are his heir, if he dies today you will take over all his properties”.
    That has been my friends poem whenever I told them about my dad’s wrath.
    I committed the worst, let’s say it was the beginning of my destruction. One day, I stole my father Six Hundred Thousand (#600,000) in which I spent at a get-together for a old friend of mine. I came back home the next morning totally drunk to stupor. My father asked for his money which he knew I stole. My father threatened to push me out of his house which I replied thus:
    “your father doesn’t send you parking from his house, so you can never send me out of this house because this is my father’s house and nobody will send me out of this house”.
    What nonsense, my father exclaimed. He was totally mad at me, he was so irritated that he felt he could actually kill me. He called the police to pack my belongings out of his house, in which the policemen did a job well done.
    I relocated to Blade and Sleek’s apartment since their parents has then disowned too. We did some illegal drug dealing and other dereliction acts. We called it
    Soon we were unable to meet our needs, Our money has been exhausted. Blade, Sleek and I planned to kidnap the Governor’s daughter and the outcome was successful.
    We ask for two hundred million naira (200 Million Naira) as ransom.
    The ransom was paid by the governor and his daughter was released.

    Imagine one and only son of an influential judge stealing from your father, when you should pray that he acquires more wealth that you will inherit

    Our misfortune started on that faithful and gloomy day, when Sleek went to eat at the biggest eatery in my town .
    The governor’s daughter happened to be at the same eatery. Suddenly she sighted the tattoo at Sleek’s right hand. She couldn’t recognize any of us because during her stay with us we were all masked. She also listenened to Sleek’s voice carefully for proper confirmation and when it sounded the-same with the one she heard when she was in our territory, she opted for the restroom to make a call and also to avoid being suspicious. She called her father which is my state governor and informed him of the latest. straightway a call was made to the commissioner of police in my state and thirty
    (30 minutes later)
    A team of police barged with their Hilux 502 car parked outside. The siren was off (you know Nigerian Police na (Executive Duty). The Governor’s daughter identified Sleek and he was apprehended with his girlfriend, and got locked behind bars.
    After a month unbearable tortore, Sleek gave up all our information including our pictures to the police.
    On that day, we are inside a hotel when I got the information from a reliable source that the policemen are coming to apprehend/capture us.
    I went to inform Blade (who was busy flirting with a lady) about the latest new. We ran out of the hotel but unfortunately for us, we meet our doom. The policemen were already waiting for us outside the hotel. We opted for a blood thirsty gun battle and managed to gun down five policemen before Blade was shot at his left shoulder and I at my right leg.
    We were apprehended, taken to jail and we were also charge to court.
    On that sadden afternoon, my father got home earlier than before my mother was so surprise by the speed and agility of his car drove into the house garage. My father came out from his car impatiently.
    “why are you this impatient? You forgot a case file or you mobile phone at home”? – my mother asked jokingly.
    My father reply thus:-
    “There is a big problem my dear, can you believe that your son Tony is one of those three guys that abducted the governor’s daughter.
    On hearing this sad, misfortune, sudden and unbelievable news my mother collapse because of the tension and shock. She was rushed to the hospital. But she later gave up to ghost on their way to the hospital. You see how I indirectly killed my innocent mother? What a life of vanity.
    After mourning on my mother’s death for one good month. Our (Blade, Sleek and I) case was charged to my father’s court as the Chief Judge of my State. My father remained adamant to have the case transfered to another court, despite all the pleas and attempts to convince him, he stood his ground.
    My father came to visit us at jail, I seized the opportunity and pleaded my eyes out, promising to turn a new leave if I can be spared from this case. I beckoned him to gave me the last chance.
    My friends were also begging him on their own personal behalf, that he should please help them to beg the judge in charge of their case to please free them not known that our decider is right standing here in front of us.
    “you can use your influential and your power to turn this case to another dimension that will favor us na. sebi you be the Chief Judge of this state”. – Blade said boldly.
    “And I bet you can’t watch your blood to being jailed without you doing anything”. – Sleek conclude Blade Statement.
    My father left without saying a single word, not even revealing my mother’s death to me
