They were so smart in their crime that nobody suspected them. Their hideout was perfect for committing such atrocity and they went on in their heinous act for months until nemesis caught up with them.

Baba Sura, as he was popularly called, was a famous man in the village. He was a loving father to his children and a caring husband to his one and only wife. Everyone loved and respected him until the day he lost his dignity.

Mama Rose was a wife to the village palm wine tapper, who happened to be a bosom friend of Baba Sura.

” I think my wife is having an affair.” Baba Rose consulted his friend one evening while they were having a quiet time.

“What! Why do you say so? ” he questioned.

“She has been denying me my right for over two months now.” Baba Rose complained.

“That’s too bad, but it doesn’t indicate that she is seeing some else. I will urge you to exercise patience with her and make sure you catch her red-handed before you take any rash decision.” Baba Sura counseled.

So he took the man’s advice and waited till the day he would catch her under the mysterious man. The truth finally came out after he had waited for what seemed like an eternity and he was astounded to find out that ‘the insect preying his vegetable was within his arm’s length’. If anyone had told him, he wouldn’t have believed but he saw it with his own eyes at the market square.

On that fateful day, the duo had fixed both time and rendezvous point. Baba Sura to his family had gone to his farm to check the trap he sets for the rodents eating his cassava while Mama Rose tabled the lie of going to buy vegetable from the market to her husband. They both met under the orange tree in a forest not too far from the market square. On getting there, Mama Rose spread her wrapper on the ground as the stadium they would play the match. Baba Sura wasted no time in laying her down before he got on top.

Their game went on and on for minutes with both parties deriving maximum pleasure, not knowing that the tree they were lying under was having a beehive. Suddenly a strange wind blew, causing the hive to fall down and dozens of bees rushed out.

None of the villagers could understand why the two ran out of the forest naked, they thought they had lost their sanity, so they quickly grabbed and tied them down. It was after they had been talking for a while that the people deduced that their sanity was still intact. What were they doing in the forest naked? That was a question they couldn’t provide an answer to but the villagers already found the answer within themselves
