Bernice Ansah

Big bro, please listen to the wise counsel mummy is giving to you before is too late ooo, the stubborn fly has always ended up in the grave with the corpse so please don’t walk freely into this open trap.

Michael Ansah

Shut up young lady, the lion doesn’t need a safe journey from his family because he knows how to hunt down his prey and journey back home safe without fear or anxiety. I will advise you to stay off my back anytime an issue of mine pops up. I won’t repeat myself to you again.

Akua Yankey

Adjoa Bernice if he doesn’t want to listen to me or you, let him be and I hope what am feeling is just one of those unnecessary things I waste my time and mind on.

All of a sudden there is this heavy knock on the door of the house.

Akua Yankey

Ah, who is knocking on the door like he or she is deaf? Bernice, check on the person at the door.

Bernice Ansah

(moves to the door to check who was behind the door) Hello sir, please who are you looking for?

Visitor

Is your father or mother in?

Bernice Ansah

My father is not in but my mum is the one currently at home.

Akua Yankey

(screaming from behind) Bernice who is there and what does he or she want?

Bernice Ansah

Mummy, it’s a man and he’s asking of papa or you.

Akua Yankey

Then, why are you keeping him there without ushering him in? Let him come in so I find out his reason for coming over to this place.

Bernice Ansah

Am sorry sir, please come in and make yourself comfortable.

Visitor

Oh, that is nice but I didn’t come here to exchange pleasantries with you or any member of this house. I am Detective Sergeant Kwaku-Duah and as you see me so am here to arrest your son Michael Ansah. Kindly tell me where he is or everyone in here will be charged with “obstruction of duty charges”.

Bernice Ansah

(trembling) Sir please he is the one standing there.

Visitor

Oh, nice so you are the woman beater erh? Well, your cup is full today and the laws of the country will rigidly deal with you. You are under arrest and you have the right to be silent or anything that you say will be used against you in the court of law, also you have the right to an attorney. (brings out a handcuff from his back pocket)

Michael Ansah

I’m not resisting arrest so there will be no need for the handcuff.

Visitor

Are you the one to teach me how to do my job? Do you know how many people who had a similar problem like yours that I have professionally dealt with the matter?

Bernice Ansah

Please what has my brother done that you are trying to handcuff him even though he is not resisting arrest?

Akua Yankey

Yes, my daughter is right, moreover, you have not shown us any form of identification even though you mentioned your name and rank, how do we know if truly you are a police officer?

Visitor

I can see you know your rights here in this house but you couldn’t tame this monster of yours from attacking that young lady. Do you know the damage he has done to the face of that lady? Well, I didn’t come alone so if you want to know if am genuine or not, just step foot out of this room and you can confirm for yourself. (speaks into his walking talkie, eagle one to bravo team; package received and conveying it to charlie checkpoint so take cover and wait for delivery)

Akua Yankey

(follows her son and the officer out) Jesssssssssus Christ!!! Why this number of armed police officers in my compound like this? My son is not a land guard or any notorious robber so why are you people creating a scene here in my house. Herh Bernice, get me my phone so I call your father to inform him of what has just happened here since he is the man of the house.

Bernice Ansah

Eeiiiii mummy, I didn’t know sister Agnes will go this far to get all these police officers here in just a twinkle of an eye. I am even shocked at her action, she should at least consider you and papa before taking such a decision. I won’t forgive her if anything happens to my only brother oooo!!!

Akua Yankey

Herh, get me the phone and stop this too known attitude you are displaying here. But Agnes you could have first approached me so we solve this problem home in an amicable way, you know you are like my own daughter.

Agnes Kyerewaa

What are you saying Maame Akua, if I were to be your daughter or your blood will you be there to talk about solving this matter in the house amicably? See how he has transformed my pretty face to that of a burglar who has been caught by a mob, please officers get him out of here because his presence alone makes me feel like throwing up.

Visitor

(puts Kwaku Mike in one of the Nissan Navara cars that they came with) Madam. you can follow us immediately as we leave this place for the station which is in the next town.

Bernice Ansah

(walks in and hands her mother’s phone to her) So mummy, they are taking him to the police station for real? If I was having my phone on me like I would have called the commander to assist us on this issue.

Visitor

No need for that my dear because the person your brother assaulted happens to be the niece of the commander so my boss is really annoyed and very interested in this case. See you later at the station, guys let’s move out.

Akua Yankey

My God, what is happening now, your father’s phone is not connecting, the call continues to drop without being told if the phone is off or out of coverage area. My enemies are at work.

Meanwhile, almost everyone in the compound has come out to witness what the police came to do in the house. The police cars leave the house and almost everyone goes back to his or her room. At the corner of the house, some tenants are engaging in a conversation

Hajia Kubra

But Agnes didn’t try at all ooo, she should at least considered her decision from going to the police station. This matter could have been resolved peacefully in this house with every medical bill been taken care of by the landlord and his family.

Eno Bruwa

Oh, did you say she didn’t try? Hajia am very disappointed in you, see how that foolish boy has spoilt that pretty girl’s face, if I were the victim or related to the girl like how I will stretch this matter erh, the supreme court would have been where we will end up. But all the same, it will serve as a lesson to him, next time he will not treat any lady like a punching bag again.

Hajia Kubra

Ah, Eno Bruwa don’t talk like you are not a mother and don’t make me think you are rejoicing in the agony of that family?

Eno Bruwa

Hehehe, so if am a mother and my child fools around will I continue to pamper him or her for his or her foolishness to escalate? That girl has even given it to them at a wholesale price but if it were to be me erh, like you will clap for me.

Akua Yankey

(who has been standing behind them for some time and listening to their conversation) Thank you very much Hajia Kubra for your good intention towards my family. I am very grateful.

Eno Bruwa

(feeling ashamed and wondering if Akua Yankey heard all that came out from her mouth) Oh hmmm my dear, I am very sad with the way things have turn out to be. At least this girl should have considered you and how generous your family is to we the tenants. If she comes back home, I will sit her down and advise her to go and withdraw her charges against your son. Am very worried and I pray this matter doesn’t go overboard or what do you think Hajia?

Hajia Kubra

(looks at Eno Bruwa with an utmost surprise written all over her face) Hmmm, I don’t even know what to say but I urge you to be strong Maame Akua. I can only try to feel what you are passing through in this very difficult moment, please if there is anything I can do to help never hesitate to call on me. I beg to take leave since I have something on the fire (walks away quietly)

Akua Yankey

Thank you very much Hajia, for sympathizing with me and my family but for you Eno Bruwa, I don’t know what to say to you. (takes leave from the place)

Eno Bruwa

(murmuring to herself) Hmmm did I say anything wrong? Me I don’t condone certain foolish things so if she heard it or not, me I spoke my mind and I hope she will not inform her husband as to the things she heard from my mouth. This my big mouth will one day land me in serious trouble paa oooo.

AT THE POLICE STATION

Commander

Is that the dimwit that turned my niece into a punching bag?

Station Master

Yes sir, I have ordered one of the CID’s on duty to take his statement right away.

Commander

I know you are trying to act professional and follow the procedures that we put suspects through but with this fool sitting there I want to deal with him in a very special way so lock him in the cell first, I have a brief meeting with the regional commander and when am back we will know what to do with him so that he will never raise a finger at any woman ever again in his miserable life. When you go and smoke your stupid herbs then you channel your attention to innocent people whiles you could use that strength to do something meaningful to your life.

Michael Ansah

Excuse me, sir, with all due respect you can’t call me names and I want to make things clear to you or any of your officers that I don’t smoke either do I drink. What you are planning to do is against my human right, even for your men to allow me to make a single call to my attorney or any family member who can come and bail me, they have bluntly refused. I hope you can answer questions about how bad you and your men treated me when this matter gets to the media.

Commander

Oh I see!!! So you know what human rights stand for and you took the law into your hands to assault that innocent young lady. Well unfortunately for you that girl is my niece and I won’t sit for any stupid idiot to manhandle her and go about freely. I will also deal with you in a way that you will not forget in a hurry, I hate women beaters and today you will drop that attitude of beating women. Inspector Kafui, see to it that he is put behind bars and let the cell commandos deal with him inside there, I will be back shortly after the meeting, take charge of the station and handle everything that comes here.

Michael Ansah is locked inside the cell and immediately the cell commandos descend on him with slaps from all angles, he tries to fight back but he is outnumbered and the punches that he received made him start to cry. Fortunately for him, the cell leader instructed the cell commandos to stop beating him and tell them what brought him to this part of the world.

After his introduction and telling him his offence the cell leader realises that Michael Ansah was his classmate back at the primary school so he ordered everyone not to touch him again or even yell at him again inside the cell, he was immediately moved to the VVIP part of the cell so he could feel comfortable. In no time Akua Yankey and Bernice Ansah arrived at the police station crying on top of their voices as if Kwaku Mike has been jailed by court order.
