Impossible is Possible! – E7
His father found the information hard to believe because most of his life he had been surrounded by people that claimed they were Christians but were the greatest cheats’ one could find around. They could not even pay their taxes right. His wife also experienced the same when it came to the people around her in the market place; the same people that said they went to church were the ones that were the greatest culprits for cheating customers and cursing them. The only woman she found to be different was one that minded her business and lived an exemplary life; she was always the first to care for those on the street and her prices were always fair. The thing that struck Kolapo’s mother the most was the woman was always happy or would she say joyful because despite the nature of the circumstance, she always had a smile.
Kolapo’s team was scheduled for another war training to refresh what they had been learning since they got to the Jaji station. Gbemiro’s assistant, Joshua handled the class since he was called away urgently by his superiors. In the course of practice, Kolapo’s team mate accidently bumped into him which resulted in him landing on the scattered broken pieces of glass that had been placed in the arena for the purpose of practice. For some micro-seconds, the whole class was shocked beyond words because they had not seen it coming but almost immediately Joshua recovered and he barked out orders for assistance to lift Kolapo from the spot; another team mate was sent to go get the ambulance. Kolapo was instantly knocked out and rendered unconscious.
Gbemiro was ‘welcomed’ with the news that Kolapo was in the hospital and instantly he changed directions to lead him to the military hospital which was sited within the station. When he arrived, he was told by the nurses that Kolapo was in surgery and it was after any of the doctors would be able to ascertain the measure of damage that had been incurred. With that much information, Gbemiro placed a call to his wife Victoria and asked her to start praying but decided against calling Kolapo’s parents until after the surgery so that he could minimise the panic that could occur as a result of the news.
